Motorola is launching its G6 series on Thursday, but the three phones surfaced with press renders in all colors. The Moto G6 Play, Moto G6, and Moto G6 Plus will arrive on Thursday in Sao Paulo, Brazil with a tall screen and are also expected to have Android Oreo and quick charging support.
The most affordable of the three phones is the Play variant. According to Geekbench, it should have a Snapdragon 430 chipset with octa-core CPU running at 1.4 GHz. The display panel is 5.7” in diagonal with HD+ resolution. There will be 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage on board, microSD slot is available for all the extra files you need on the phone.
There is only one camera, placed in the circular module on the back and it is 13 MP. The front one is 8 MP. Both snappers are coupled with an LED flash. The phone is coming with a stock Android, coupled with some Moto apps. The fingerprint is found on the back, placed under the Moto logo. This is the only Moto G6 phone where the scanner is not below the screen.
The back of the G6 Play looks plastic and will arrive in only two colors - Indigo Blue or Gold.
The medium member of the G6 family has the same screen size as the Play, but with Full HD+ resolution. TENAA listing revealed the chipset is upgraded to Snapdragon 450 and the eight CPU cores go as high as 1.8 GHz. The RAM/storage combo is 4/64 GB.
The circular camera module houses two snappers - 12 MP + 5 MP that have an accompanying LED flash below them. The front 16 MP cam gets another LED flash. Unlike the G6 Play, here the fingerprint is wedged in the bezel below the display, but it is extremely thin to make room for the Motorola logo.
The battery capacity is 3,000 mAh and it comes with Turbo Charging through the USB-C. The back has a glass panel for a slick look and there are four color options for this phone - Indigo Blue, Silver, Rose Gold and Black.
The most powerful of the lot is the G6 Plus. As we have written before, here we have a Snapdragon 630 chipset and a bigger 5.93” screen with Full HD+ resolution. RAM is now 6 GB, but storage is the same as the regular G6 - 64 GB with microSD for expansion.
Although the Moto G6 Plus comes in a bigger body, it still sports similar physical attributes - dual cameras on the back, glass-sandwiched body and a weirdly thin fingerprint scanner on the front. There is no info if the camera will have different sensors, but the battery will be slightly bigger - 3,200 mAh.
Moto G6 Plus will hit the markets in only two colors - Indigo Blue or Gold. It should come as the most expensive of all three phones, but prices and availability will be revealed at the launch next week.
Design of the back is not that bad. Front 50-50 (less bezelles would be better)... Problem is shape of the phone. If you put this phone, Motorola X4, Motorola 1Gen, Samsung Galaxy S3 in case, ok, maybe back will be different because of different hole...
Owen, don't worry about the design of the back. You're gonna be putting a case on it anyway.
But Motorola G6 design is the same, not only that, same ugly design, like Samsung Galaxy S3 rounded design. Motorola X4 also looks like Motorola Moto G1, or S3, same goes to this G6. Are you stuck in 2011-2013 or what¿ (Lenovo) Motorola is n...
