The year has just begun and we already have a lot of gadgets to eagerly wait for. According to the latest rumors, we might get to see a number of new Moto handsets next month, at the MWC in Barcelona. The Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play are among them, and now, thanks to some leaked images and specs details, we know quite a lot about the upcoming devices. Just like last year’s Moto G5, this year’s Moto G6 promises to be a solid mid-range handset with a lot to offer. The Moto G6 Plus and the Moto G6 Play seem to be promising devices too.
In terms of design, there are some changes. The handsets sport the same home button beneath the display, which probably houses the fingerprint sensor too. The G6 Play will be the only one to feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and ditch the home button on the front. On the back, the circular housing of the primary remains the same, however, this time around, there is a dual rear camera setup on the Moto G6. The handset is now narrower and taller, as it adopts the 18:9 aspect ratio we’ve seen in many other smartphones recently. The base model and the Moto G6 Play will have 5.7-inch displays, while the G6 Plus will sport a larger, 6.93-inch screen. Also, the Moto G6 won’t be an all-metal device anymore, it will have a glass back.
Naturally, the handsets also get a bump in power. The new Moto G6 will reportedly come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, while the G6 Plus will sport a Snapdragon 630 SoC. The G6 will reportedly become available with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage or 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage. The G6 Plus will offer the same storage options, however, it seems that it will also come in a 6GB RAM version. All three models will launch in several color options, allowing customers to choose the ones that best suit their personalities.
Just like last year’s models, the Moto G6 and G6 Plus will be quite affordable. The base model could have a price tag around $240. The larger G6 Plus will naturally cost more, and will probably have a $330 price tag. Lenovo will most likely unveil the handsets at the MWC 2018 next month. Then we will find out more about the devices and what they have to offer.
