There certainly won’t be many surprises whenever Motorola finally decides to launch the Moto G6 series. And from the looks of it, that launch is not in the very far future. The Moto G6 recently appeared on TENAA while the Moto G6 Play has been certified by the NCC in Taiwan. Not only do we know exactly how the next Moto G series will look, we also know how capable each one of them will be.
First off, let’s make it clear that there are three Moto G6 phones this year. Tipster Blass reported codenames of the three models in February. Moto G6 lineup codenames:
The Moto G6 Play will be the base model of the series while the Moto G6 Plus will be the beefed-up Moto G6 on the line.
Moto G6 series physical look
The Moto G6 leaked images have been on point from day one. This has now been corroborated by leaked official promo images of the three devices. We’ll break down the info regarding the specs and design in their respective sections below.
Moto G6 Play
The Moto G6 Play is very similar to its bigger siblings, the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus in most design aspects. There are a few minor differences though. The Moto G6 Play is expected to rock a single rear camera while the other two models will arrive with a dual rear camera. Also, the fingerprint reader will be hidden under the Moto dimple at the rear of the Moto G6 Play. This is as per leaked info. The official posters that appeared yesterday show no fingerprint reader on the front of any Moto G6 model whatsoever.
As for specs, the Moto G6 Play will feature a 5.7-inch HD+ display according to most rumours. Also, leaks are unanimous regarding the Snapdragon 430 chip under the hood alongside 3GB of RAM. Also, the handset will be powered by a 4000mAh battery. This was also revealed in a GeekBench report of the device.
In terms of design, the big difference in the Moto G6 is the dual camera and the fingerprint reader on the front. In terms of size, it will be almost similar to the Moto G6 Play with a 5.7-inch screen.
The standard Moto G6 recently passed TENAA and as a result, all specifications of the phone were outed prematurely. Additionally, there was an Amazon UK listing of the product which concurred with the TENAA spec sheet. The listing mentioned a dual SIM device with a 3000mAh battery. The Moto G6 will step it up in the processor department with the Snapdragon 626 SoC and 3GB of RAM. The rear camera should be a combo of 12MP + 5MP sensors. While the front camera is a 16MP sensor. According to the Amazon UK listing, the handset should be priced around $240.
Moto G6 Plus
The Moto G6 Plus will step up its game in some key areas to be better than the standard two devices of the Moto G6 series. According to a report by Android Headlines, the Moto G6 Plus will be a tad bit bigger – 5.93-inches in the display. The handset will feature a Snapdragon 630 chipset coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
The same camera setup of the Moto G6 will be pushed over to the Plus model. This is also the case with the physical look of the device. According to Andri Yatim, who has been a continuous source of Moto G leaks so far, the handset will be priced around $320.
Moto G6 series launch date
Since we’re starting to see official posters of the Moto G6 series, we’re inclined to say the release should not be far off. As per Andri Yatim, the Moto G series will launch on May 19.
