Motorola is back again and this time they’ve unveiled two new Smartphones for the Malaysian Market. Starting off with Moto G5S Plus, which is the first to feature a dual camera setup on the back. They also announced the successor to the Moto X Series, the Moto X4. Let’s take a closer look at these devices.

Moto G5S Plus



Moto G5S Plus is the bigger brother to the G5 Plus which we saw a while back. But this time you get more than you expect. This is the first G Series phone to feature a dual camera setup. What makes it even better is the fact that both of the sensor is 13MP with an aperture of f/2.0. This makes it a camera centric smartphone. With that, you also get to play tons of features that’s catered to these cameras like blurred bokeh effect. On the front, it features a 8MP Wide-angle camera with an aperture of f/2.0 as well.

In terms of design, it follows a similar body design as the G5 Plus which I am a huge fan of. It packs a 5.5″ FHD Display on the front and under the hood, it runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. Clocked in at 2.0 GHz. As of for the battery, it has a 3000 mAh that can last for a day and you can charge the device lightning fast with the TurboPower Charger. It comes in two different colors. Lunar Grey and Blush Gold.

Moto X4



Remember the Moto X that got everyone interested back when it was announced? Well, the successor Moto X4 is also in Malaysia now and oh my god, it’s sexy AF. The Moto X4 features a dual camera setup, featuring a 12MP and 8MP sensor on the back. But Motorola claims that it could do more than take pictures. It has a new feature called Landmark Detection. All you have to do is point the camera towards the object and it will ask you if you want to learn more about it. It also does other things like scanning business cards and adding it to the contacts. As of for the front of the camera, you have a whooping 16MP Camera for amazing low light selfies.

In terms of specification, it runs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 clocked in at 2.2 GHz. It also features a 3000 mAh battery that supports TurboPower for quick charging capabilities. Now in terms of design, I have to say this. The Moto X4 is by far the best looking phone yet and it’s glorious on its own, thanks to the robust protection like IP68 water resistant capability followed by an anodized aluminium frame. The device is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass on the front and the back.

The device will be available in two different colors. Super Black and Sterling Blue.
