Moto G6 Motorola

Lenovo‘s Moto G series has firmly established itself as one of the more popular budget device ranges in India. Now, the company has announced the availability of the Moto G6 and G6 Play in the market.

If you’re hoping to get the standard Moto G6 then you’ll need to log on to Amazon India and spend 13,999 rupees (~$209). The G6 Play, on the other hand, is a Flipkart exclusive and has a 11,999 rupee (~$179) price tag.

Both models will start retailing in the region at midnight tonight (IST). If you don’t care for online retailers then you can also get the devices from Moto Hub offline stores.

Android smartphones with the best battery life (March 2018)

Some people might think that the most important feature in a smartphone is its display size. Others believe it comes down to a phone’s processor performance, or the amount of RAM, or how much storage …

So what warrants spending an extra 2,000 rupees for the vanilla Moto G6? Well, you’re getting a dual camera setup (12MP and 5MP), a higher resolution selfie camera (16MP), a sharper screen (full HD+), a more powerful but still mid-range Snapdragon 450 chipset, and more RAM/storage (3GB/32GB).

Meanwhile, the Moto G6 Play packs a single 13MP f/2.0 main camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, 1,440 x 720 display, a less capable Snapdragon 427 processor, and 2GB RAM/16GB of storage.

Nevertheless, the G6 Play has one sizeable advantage over the regular G6 in the form of a 4,000mAh battery. So if you value endurance above all else, this might be up your alley.

One model conspicuously absent from today’s announcement is the Moto G6 Plus. Lenovo’s Thomas Milner confirmed that the larger device is still coming, but no timeline was shared.

The Plus-sized phone offers a more powerful Snapdragon 630 chipset, 4GB/6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of storage, and a 12MP/5MP dual-camera setup, so if you need some oomph on a budget, you might want to wait for the G6 family’s larger sibling to land.
