While the Moto G5 Plus isn't yet available for purchase in many regions, users are still able to experience the new features that Motorola has built into the new smartphone. This is due to the fact that a user from XDA Developers has ported the launcher, for others to install on their devices. The Moto G5 Plus has a Pixel-like launcher along with a circle clock-weather-battery widget, which has also been ported. While it is very similar to the official Google Pixel Launcher, there is one major change from what Google has on the Pixel, and that is the transparent app drawer. This launcher was ported by XDA developer Junior Passos. He has gained a reputation at XDA for porting various apps and releasing the APK files so that Android users can try a glimpse of new devices.

The circular clock-weather-battery widget has also been ported to work on other Android devices. This widget uses location service to show the weather details for your current location. At the same time, it shows the time and battery percentage. The Moto G5 Plus Launcher and the circular clock-weather-battery widget can be easily installed on every existing Moto device as well as on any other Android device. While the widget surfaced on XDA Developers, Google+ user Angelo Aurich posted the widget.

The Moto G5 Plus launcher and the widget can be quickly installed on every Android device running Android 7.0 Nougat. To install them on your phone you will need to download both APK files onto your smartphone. Once you download the APK files, go to Settings -> Security and check the box for "Unknown Sources". If you don't enable this option you won't be able to install APK files, in fact the installation manager will prompt you to go to settings and enable Unknown Sources if you haven't ahead of time. To set the launcher as your main launcher, just hit the home button and the system will prompt you about which Launcher you want to use, just select the Moto G5 Plus Launcher and you're all set. To use the widget, just add a widget to your home screen like you normally would. Download links for both files are below.
