- A month ago, a large Motorola leak gave us hints of the various stats of the upcoming G6 family of phones.
- A new leak gives us the possible pricing and chipset info for the devices.
- The HTML5test database also all but confirms the display ratios and resolutions of the devices.
A month ago, a huge Motorola leak gave us a look at the 2018 lineup of smartphones from the Lenovo-owned manufacturer. Some questioned the authenticity of the leaks, especially since the phones appeared to have 18:9 displays, rather than the 16:9 screens previous Motorola phones have.
We now have some newly leaked info which suggests a few things, namely the pricing and chipsets of the upcoming devices.
According to the leak, the Moto G6 will sport a Snapdragon 450 and a 3,000 mAh battery. We can speculate that the G6 Plus will come with the more powerful Snapdragon 630 chipset and a 3,250 mAh battery. The G6 Play will probably come with a slower processor, the Snapdragon 430, but a huge battery that packs a whopping 4,000 mAh.
All three devices will likely have 18:9 displays, which is a nice improvement over the 16:9 displays found on the Moto G5 and G5s family. However, there is some contention about display ratios. The HTML5test database points to all three devices sporting 2,160 x 1,080 resolutions, but this new leak says that the Moto G6 Play will have a lower, 720p+ resolution. This would make more sense, as the Play variants of Motorola phones usually have bigger batteries, slower processors, and lower resolutions.
Today’s recent leak also gave us some alleged pricing info for the Indian market:
- Moto G6 – Rs. 12,000
- Moto G6 Plus – Rs. 15,000
- Moto G6 Play – Rs. 17,000
The G6 Play should launch with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. There’s no definitive information about which operating system version the G6 and G6 Plus will launch with, but it’s probably safe to assume they will have Oreo as well.
Mobile World Congress 2018 is right around the corner, and it’s likely that Motorola will officially reveal these phones then. Until then, any of this information could potentially change.
