Moto G6 Play design & specs shown off in new images
The upcoming Moto G6 Play has appeared in yet another set of hands-on images. It's no secret that Motorola has plans to launch its new Moto G6 line within a matter of days, with the official launch set for April 19 in Brazil. As the date draws closer, though, the leaks just keep on coming, with the G6 Play being the subject of the latest one. 

Confirming previous leaks, the new images show off the device's glass build which resembles the one featured on last year's Moto X4. However, in contrast to the latter, the new Moto G6 Play sports a large 18:9 display, which is listed as being a 5.7-inch panel. Furthermore, in line with recent rumors, the images in question confirm the inclusion of an octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, which coincides with the specs of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 430. In any case, this is also coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while expansion via microSD card is expected. Moving on to the battery department, a huge 4,000mAh unit is listed, meaning solid battery life levels should be achievable, while it's also worth noting that the Moto G6 Play will support Motorola's TurboPower fast chargers.

Regarding the camera department, all rear elements will once again be packed into a large, circular module, with a 13-megapixel rear lens being the most important element, although it's worth pointing out that this will be coupled with an LED flash. In addition, the images list an 8-megapixel selfie sensor up front, while an LED flash can also be seen. On a separate note, the upcoming smartphone will feature a rear-facing fingerprint scanner. However, this will be hidden within the Motorola batwing logo that is present below the camera module. Also, a 3.5mm headphone jack is set to be included alongside a micro-USB port, instead of the newer USB Type-C connector.

On a final note, as is customary with Motorola launches, the G6 Play will ship with stock Android 8.1 Oreo straight out of the box, although certain Motorola features will be included on top of this. Regarding pricing and a release date, though, Motorola is yet to comment officially on the matter. In any case, the Moto G6 Play is expected to launch alongside the regular Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Plus, with Brazil likely to be one of the first markets to receive the new smartphone lineup.

These phones aren't focused on the type of consumers that would care that its still Micro USB, in fact they'll be happy they don't have to buy new cables.

The most impressive thing is that Motorola managed to integrate the FPS in their logo. Now if more phone manufacturers were to emulate what Motorola has done with their G6 Play, everyone would be happy. It might even be enough for me to try out an iPhone. Might...

Isn't the S450 14nm? That processor would be better suited for a large battery phone

I have a G5 and I'm happy with it except it has the micro USB connector. That's why you haven't gone with the type C is inexplicable.
