Motorola announces Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play




Motorola is finally starting their engines for 2018 as they unveil their new generation G devices — The Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play. The company’s new mid-range trio all sport an 18:9 Max Vision display and the signature, but revamped Moto design.

First up let’s look at the G6. The device is powered by a 5.7-inch 18:9 FHD+ IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 3 or 4GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of internal storage, USB Type-C, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a 3,000mAh battery. As for cameras, we get a dual rear setup consisting of a 12MP main and 5MP secondary and a single 8MP front. The device is splash resistant thanks to its p2i water-repellant coating.

The G6 actually has an interesting curved design, reminiscent of the past Galaxy S Edge devices. That’s not to say its bad, it’s actually refreshing to see that Motorola has veered away from their generic design. Although, the protruding circular camera mount is still present.

Next up the bigger Moto G6 Plus. It retains much of the design structure of the G6, only this time we get a slightly bigger screen and beefier specs. Powering the device is a 5.9-inch 18:9 Full HD+ display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, Adreno 508 GPU, 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, USB Type-C, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a 3,200mAh battery. As for cameras, we get the same dual 12MP+5MP rear setup of the G6 but with Dual Autofocus Pixel technology and a single 8MP front.

Lastly, the Moto G6 Play, a somewhat toned down version of the previous two. While we get slightly less powerful hardware, the design structure stays the same. It even retains the p2i water-repellant coating and the protruding circular camera mount. Powering the Moto G6 Play is a 5.7-inch 18:9 HD+ IPS display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor, Adreno 308 GPU, 2 or 3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal storage, microUSB, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a 4,000mAh battery. As for cameras, we have a single 13MP rear with PDAF and a f/2.0 aperture and a single 5MP front.
