We even saw some alleged renders of a Pink colored Galaxy S8 Plus appearing online. Now, Samsung has finally launched a Pink color variant of the device in its home country. To be more specific, the color is Rose Pink (it seems so). However, this new version will be available only in Taiwan or at least for now. If it will be launched in other regions is not known as Samsung is yet to make an announcement.
There is another catch, this Pink Galaxy S8 Plus will be sold only for a limited period of time. Presumably, Samsung wants to keep its customers interested until the launch of Galaxy Note 8. You should also keep in mind that the color may not be called Rose Pink in every market. As you know, the company has renamed Coral Blue, Orchid Grey, Midnight Black, and Maple Gold to Ice Lake Blue, Smoked Purple Grey, Crystal Black, and Quicksand Gold in Taiwan.
Other than the new hue, internal specs remain the same. It comes with a 6.2-inch bezel-less Infinity display, Exynos 8895/Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable default storage. Optics-wise, the smartphone features a 12MP rear-facing camera as well an 8MP camera on the front. The device draws is energy from a 3500mAh battery and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. It is also worth pointing out that it is the first smartphone to offer Bluetooth 5.0.
Lenovo-owned Moto will reportedly launch a new C series of smartphones running Android Nougat operating system. The Moto C and Moto C Plus handsets will be the most affordable Motorola phones, according to a report by Venture Beat.
Both the Moto C and Moto C Plus will offer the same display size of 5-inches and will be powered by Mediatek chipsets. While the Moto C could come in 3G and 4G versions, the C Plus will be available only with 4G LTE.
The Moto C includes 1GB of RAM along with either 8GB or 16GB internal memory. The C Plus variant is expected to come with 2GB of RAM, according to the report.
On the camera front, the Moto C will come with a 5MP rear camera with Flash and a 2MP front camera with front Flash. The Moto C Plus will offer an 8MP rear camera along with the same 2MP front camera.
The Moto C is expected to be powered by a 2,350mAh battery while the Moto C Plus will house a 4,000mAh battery.
The company had recently launched the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus smartphones in India. There is very negligible difference between the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Coming to the price, the Moto G5 is priced at Rs 11,999 while the Moto G5 Plus 3GB RAM + 16GB internal storage variant costs Rs 14,999 and the 4GB RAM + 32GB internal storage variant is available for Rs 16,999.

While the Moto G5 offers a 5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, the Moto G5 Plus is slightly bigger at 5.2-inch with same display features. Both the smartphones were first unveiled globally at MWC 2017 in February.
Earlier this month, we all were flabbergasted and astounded when the FCC documentation for the Motorola Moto E4 Plus revealed that the phone would carry a 5000mAh battery. While Motorola has shoehorned high capacity batteries into past DROID models, this would be the largest battery every carried by a Motorola handset eclipsing the 3900mAh cell found on the Motorola DROID Turbo. And the Moto E4 Plus, unlike the DROID Turbo, is far from being a flagship model.
Images of the Moto E4 Plus were discovered today, and one picture shows that the back cover is removable. This would allow users to swap out a dead battery for a fresh one. Besides the huge cell, the Moto E4 Plus is rumored to carry a 5.5-inch screen with a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. Powering the handset will be the MediaTek MT6737M SoC containing a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU, and the Mail-T720MP2 (600MHz) GPU. It will come with 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage.
The Moto E4 Plus is said to feature a 13MP rear-facing camera with a 5MP camera in front for snapping selfies and handling video chats. Android 7.1.1 is pre-installed. The phone is expected to launch first in Europe before making its way to other regions. It is expected to be priced at the equivalent of $207 USD.

The Motorola Moto G5S Plus has been the subject of a few image leaks in the past couple of months. And now, a couple of new images alleged to be of the phone have leaked, showing close-ups of the handset’s front and back.
The design revealed by this new set of images is inline with what we’ve already seen before. Specs-wise, the phone is said to be powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC and sport a 5.5-inch Full HD display. RAM would be 4GB, while storage would be 64GB.
The device is also rumored to feature 13 MP + 13 MP sensors on the back (one color, one black and white), and an 8 MP selfie unit. It will have an aluminum body.
It looks like dual rear cameras will be the defining trend this year. We’ve already seen Xiaomi roll out the feature in the Mi 6, and OnePlus is rumored to offer a dual-camera setup in the OnePlus 5. Motorola is jumping on the bandwagon, with the Moto G5S Plus set to become the first phone from the manufacturer to sport two cameras at the back.
Leaked renders by Gear India reveal a desing that’s identical to what we’ve seen yesterday with the Moto G5S, albeit with two cameras at the back. We don’t know if Motorola will resort to a similar implementation as Huawei — offering a monochrome sensor paired with an RGB lens — or if it’ll use the secondary sensor as a telephoto lens like the Mi 6.
The Moto G5S Plus is said to offer a 5.5-inch Full HD display, and an all-metallic chassis that will be available in three color options — grey, gold, and silver. It looks like that blue variant is limited to the Moto G5S. There’s no information on the rest of the hardware, but it is likely Motorola will retain the Snapdragon 625, or switch to the newer Snapdragon 626 chipset. The addition of dual cameras is certainly an interesting move, but it will undoubtedly raise the cost of the phone.
The standard Moto G5 Plus with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage retails for $299, and a variant of the G5S Plus with the same configuration could easily run up to $350, awfully close to the $400 price point of the Moto Z Play.
The G5S Plus won’t be the only Motorola handset with dual rear cameras, as a Moto Z2 Force leak from last week showed off two cameras at the back. With seven phones yet to launch, Motorola’s lineup is about to get very crowded.
We should know more about the Moto G5S and the G5S Plus in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
