Going by the looks of the Moto Green Pomelo, it looks nearly identical to the Moto G5S launched back in August for the Indian market.


Lenovo-owned Motorola launched a new smartphone in China and named it the Moto Green Pomelo. While Lenovo was expected to launch the Moto G5S in the Chinese market, the company decided to tweak certain things to launch a new smartphone altogether.

Going by the looks of the device, it looks nearly identical to the Moto G5S launched back in August for the Indian market. According to a report by GizmoChina, the only difference between the Green Pomelo and the G5S as far as the exteriors go is the addition of a pomelo fruit logo at the bottom of the rear metal plate on the new smartphone.

The Moto Green Pomelo packs in pretty much the same internals as well with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with an Adreno 505 GPU. Similar to the Indian variant of the G5S, the Green Pomelo also gets a healthy 4 GB of RAM along with 32 GB of onboard storage. The only differentiator here is the inclusion of a 16 MP f/2.0 front-facing camera sensor replacing the 5 MP sensor on the Moto G5S.

Priced at 1599 Yuan (approximately Rs 15,730), the Green Pomelo comes in Cool Black and Rose Gold options and runs on ZUI 3.1 which is based on Android Nougat 7.1.1. It also houses a 3000 mAh battery unit and comes along with Motorola's proprietary 15W TurboCharger.
