Lenovo starts Moto G5, G5 Plus launch countdown: What we know so far about Moto G4 series successorLenovo's Moto Germany website (screen-shot)

After confirming its participation at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017, Lenovo has opened the official countdown page with its subsidiary Moto (formerly known as Motorola) logo, almost confirming the Moto G5 series rumours.

In the newly created page (with German .de domain name), a digital clock is shown with the iconic Moto batwing logo and a gold-hued Octopus. We are not sure about the symbolism of the cephalopod mollusc, but if we were to guess, the company is probably hinting the upcoming device will be waterproof. As far as the countdown is concerned, it signifies the product launch date -- February 26.
