Motorola launched the Moto G5S Plus in several markets across the globe. The Lenovo-owned company has confirmed today that this handset will also be launched in the United States. As you would have guessed by now, it’s a slightly improved version of the Moto G5 Plus which was launched earlier this year for $230. Motorola is going to charge the same price for the Moto G5S Plus in the United States.

The updates are minor so they don’t really warrant a price increase. The Moto G5S Plus has a 5.5 inch full HD display and it’s powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor coupled. It’s available in 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB configurations, however, the latter is slightly more expensive at $300. There’s a 3,000mAh battery keeping the lights on.

The handset also features dual 13 megapixel rear cameras and an 8 megapixel front camera. Motorola says that the Moto G5S Plus has a “water-repellant” coating, don’t confuse it with water resistance. It probably won’t do very well if you decide to immerse it in water.

The handset runs Android Nougat out of the box. Interested customers can head over to the Motorola website right now and place a pre-order for the Moto G5S Plus. It costs $230 and is unlocked for all major U.S. carriers. It’s going to ship starting September 29th.
