Motorola has released the kernel source code for its Moto G5S Plus smartphone on Github. Codenamed “Sanders”, the availability of the kernel source to everyone means that developers can start building custom ROMs and mods for the device software more easily. As more people will now be able to take a look at the Kernel source code, Moto has a chance to be notified of inconsistencies and issues in the kernel code. The Moto G5S Plus is an upgrade over the existing Moto G5 Plus and was launched last month. 

The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset and comes in two storage options: 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and a 4GB RAM with 64GB storage.

The G5S Plus features a dual 13MP rear camera with one RGB colour sensor and another monochrome sensor. The additional sensor will enable features like portrait mode, selective focus, and blurred background mode. There is also an 8MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash.
