      Thanks for pointing that out Toni!

    • MrQ

      The table says 3gb ram for G5. Should be 2gb

  • Vito R.

    “The Moto G5 Plus stocks a 3,000mAh sealed battery, unlike last year’s version”

    How is it unlike last year’s version?

    No NFC no sale for me! So let’s hope Canada has it

    • Rose

      Agreed… I’m confirming with PR now.

    • Acrobat1991

      From what I can now see, no NFC! I wish they would join us in 2017 (I make payments through NFC already …with my 4 year old phone)

      Also 2gb or 4gb of ram for the Plus? They don’t know? And it might be lower than the regular G5? Not sure it makes sense (if this is true)

    • MrQ

      Only 2GB G5 is coming to Canada.
      USA is only getting G5+, option for both 2GB or 4GB RAM

  • jellmoo

    Is there word on the G5 Plus coming to Canada? The Motorola Canada site just has a preview listing for the G5.

    • Only the G5 is coming to Canada

    • jellmoo

      I think you broke my heart here Matty Mo… I think you broke my heart.

    • Rose

      Updated with comment from Moto representative — they say they cannot confirm whether it’s coming or not.

  • Francis

    Specs of the G5 are now listed on the Canadian website.

  • Hello Moto ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    The G5+ is not coming to Canada! Way to go Lenovo, keep up the good work!

    “the 5.2-inch Moto G5 Plus won’t be making its way to Canada anytime soon seeing how the Lenovo-owned phone maker announced that the larger sibling of the Moto G5 will be sold exclusively in the United States. ”

  • Vito R.

    Are you sure about the thinness (thickness?) of the G5 Plus? Other sites are reporting it’s as thick as the G5 – which makes sense considering it weighs more and has a bigger battery.

  • MoYeung

    Still waiting for official Canadian price

  • Jim__R

    Is there not to be a G5 Play?

    • MrQ

      Doesn’t look like it,

      G5 is the G4 Play replacement and G5+ is the G4/G4+ replacement

      G4 and G4+ were too close in specs

  • Jim__R

    According to Moto’s Canadian website, the G5 does not have a compass, just like the G4 Play. Wonder why it keeps getting omitted. Is it expensive to add a compass to a phone?

  • ChristianFletch

    You guys should stop saying ROM, it’s inaccurate. ROM stands for Read Only Memory, meaning it cannot be written to. The correct description would be to say that the phone has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

  • heynow00

    This looks disappointing

  • Smanny

    In the states right now you can get a Moto G5 plus for $185 USD from Amazon. But it comes with a lockscreen with Amazon ads.

  • disqus_BfoAmyImaV

    Is there any reason an unlocked G5+ from the US wouldn’t work in Canada? That seems like the route I am going to take…

    • Zach Gilbert

      Just depends on what carrier you plan to use it on, as well as which carrier it was on in the US.

  • Jf Sb

    Sucks that the G5+ isnt available, honestly would it be worth it to get it certified preowned for cheap or new condition (400$ which is pretty expensive for my range), or just go with the g5 in new condition?
