Please support this phone when it arrives.
Republic has had a long relationship with Motorola. So as soon as Motorola releases the phone, I would expect to see it for sale here and BYOP.
the Moto G5 Plus support is official as coming this spring
Well, someone has it wrong… and I’m guessing it’s the person at RW who updated the Republic Wireless phone comparison page.
The official Motorola Web page indicates that the Moto G5 Plus processor will be… and I quote… “…Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 2.0 GHz octa-core processor.” Link
However, the RW phone comparison page indicates only a quad-core processor: "Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 625
2.0 GHz Quad Core". Link
seeing as Qualcomm call it’s a Octa core I think Republic is wrong
You’re right, this is an Octa core. We had a minor mistake in the comparison document, that is now fixed. All other documentation had this correctly labeled. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
Will this phone have NFC? Motorola’s page says yes. But this page says not in the US: Motorola Moto G5 Plus • NFC World
