Moto G 5G reported specifications
The Motorola Moto G 5G is said to feature a 60Hz. 6.66-inch 2400×1080 display. We don’t know if it’s an AMOLED or LCD panel yet, and a camera cut-out is present in the middle of the status bar. It will likely have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, along with a 5,000 mAh battery too.

As for the camera setup, the Moto G 5G reportedly features 3 cameras on the back and 1 singular selfie camera. The three cameras reported are the following.
- Samsung GM1 48MP primary sensor
- Samsung S5K4H7 8MP telephoto
- OmniVision OV02B10 2MP macro
The single selfie camera is the OmniVision OV16A1Q, which shoots at 16MP but uses pixel binning to create a 4MP image.
However, the more interesting news about the Motorola Moto G 5G is that it seemingly packs a dedicated Google Assistant button.

Finally, the Moto G 5G will have SD card support and an NFC reader. The model numbers for this particular smartphone are as follows:
The Moto G 5G was first reported by TechnikNews as having the codename “Kiev”. This is one of the first smartphones to pack a Snapdragon 750G, with both Xiaomi and Samsung being the only two OEMs to have confirmed launches.
