Motorola MWC 2017 event invite

Motorola has scheduled an event on February 26 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona. The company did not introduce any new phones at the MWC last year, but it unveiled the Moto Z series at the IFA last September. Looks like we might see new “Moto G series” smartphones – Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus at the MWC this year, bit early than usual since these phones are usually unveiled in Q2 or Q3 every year.

Moto G5 Plus leak

Coming to the teaser, it shows a generic Moto smartphone image with bezels on the top and bottom of the screen. According to a render that surfaced last week in China, the phone could have a unibody metal design, first time for a Moto G series phone.
