Moto has upgraded to three devices under the Moto G series – Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play. Looking at the current market trends, we expect the company to embrace the 18.9 display technology.
Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play Specification
Now, the Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play listings are found in many countries. The first look and complete specifications of all the three devices are now revealed. However, there is no information regarding the pricing or availability of these devices. The Moto G4 Play launched in 2016 was the last smartphone to launch under the Play series.
On the design front, the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play exactly similar but comes in different sizes. The Moto G6 comes with a 5.7-inch Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) display. On the other hand, the Moto G6 Plus sports a slightly bigger 5.93-inch display with the same Full JD+ resolution. While the Moto G6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Mobile Platform, the Moto G6 Plus comes with a much better Snapdragon 630 Mobile Platform.
Talking about the Moto G6 Play, it comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) display and is powered by octa-core processor. We expect the company to opt for the MediaTek chipset for this device. The Moto G6 Play comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. Both the Moto G6 & G6 Plus are available in 3GB & 4GB RAM variants with 32GB and 64GB of internal storage respectively.
The Moto G6 Plus additionally comes in 6GB RAM variant. Even with the 18:9 displays, the upcoming Moto G6 smartphones offers relatively larger bezels. The Moto G6 and G6 Plus also have the fingerprint sensor on the front. Whereas the Moto G6 Play comes with a rear-facing fingerprint sensor integrated into the Moto dimple. All the three devices will be running on the Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.
Coming to the cameras, the Moto G6 and G6 Plus shares the same camera sensors. There is a 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup on the rear and a 16MP selfie camera on the front. The Moto G6 Play comes with a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. There is an LED flash on the front and rear of all the three devices. Interestingly, the Moto G6 Play is backed by a 4,000mAh battery, while the Moto G6 Plus with a bigger screen size comes with a 3,200mAh battery.
We also expect the India launch to happen by the end of this month.
