Moto G5S Plus lands in the US on September 29, pre-orders are live for $229.99

Vlad, 21 September 2017

Yesterday was all about the Moto X4 and its US availability - in both the newly unveiled Android One iteration and the usual version with Moto software. Today the Lenovo-owned brand has news relating to the US and another of its smartphones, namely the Moto G5S Plus. This was announced in early August as the first member of the G line to boast dual rear cameras, and it's now on its way to the US.

You can in fact already pre-order the G5S Plus from Motorola's online store. You can have it in Lunar Gray or Blush Gold, and the price is $229.99 for an unlocked unit. That is, if you don't mind having 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage. If you want 4GB and 64GB, respectively, you'll have to pay $299.99. Note however that these prices are in fact special pre-order offers valid only until September 28.

Once the Moto G5S Plus becomes available on September 29, it will cost $279.99 (the 3GB/32GB version), and $349.99 (4GB/64GB). When bought unlocked, the G5S will work with all major US carriers, including CDMA-based networks such as Verizon and Sprint - and that's a pretty rare occurrence at these price points.

Is the international/ global versión??

Does the Moto G5S Plus have NFC for use with Android Pay? All $300 phones should have NFC or no deal. Even cheapie $150 phones like the LG Stylo 3 Plus have NFC so I don't want to hear excuses.
