Lenovo, Motorola’s parent company, is now working on bringing the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus to the masses. What’s even more intriguing, is the rumour about a third variant, the Moto G6 Play. This alternative will apparently be the cheapest of the lot for the absolute entry-level category of smartphones.
There are a still a bit of time to go before the phones are going to be formally launched into the market, but that doesn’t mean we don’t already have a few details to share.
Do you remember the Moto X? The G6 series will apparently differ from the G5 series in terms of design to integrate features that will remind you of the older Moto X. As reported earlier, the G5 series will all sport 18:9 aspect ratio displays. This keeps with the trend of screens getting taller being normalized.
The Moto G6 Play, in particular, will have a 5.7-inch 720p screen and a 4,000mAh battery. You will be able to choose between dark charcoal, gold and deep blue.
The Moto G6, on the other hand, will have a 5.7-inch FHD+ screen available in black, silver, gold and rose gold. Meanwhile, the Moto G6 Plus, will come with a 5.93-inch FHD+ screen with variants in Indigo (black), Nimbus (silver) and Dark Lake (dark teal).
However, the Moto G6 Plus is going to run on a Snapdragon 630 SoC available with 3GB/4GB/6GB of RAM. But again, the storage could be either 32GB or 64GB.
The Camera and Fingerprint Sensor
Both, the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus, will probably have dual lens primary cameras of 12MP and 5MP. The front facing camera is going to be a whopping 16MP.
The phones will also come paired with a fingerprint sensor to reduce the hassle of logging into your phone.
It’s been reported that the Moto G6 will be priced at $240 (approximately Rs.15,500) and the Moto G6 Plus will cost $330 (a little over Rs.21,000).
Keeping Motorola’s past track record in mind, it’s probable that the Moto G6 series will be announced during the Mobile World Conference (MWC) 2018 scheduled for the 26th of February till the 1st of March.
That’s just around the corner so you’ll hardly have to wait!
