Moto G6 Plus benchmark listing reveals Snapdragon 660 and more
A new Geekbench listing has revealed a number specs in regards to the upcoming Moto G6 Plus. Motorola has already confirmed that it will be unveiling its new Moto G6 lineup next week in Brazil, but this has not stopped the leaks from coming, with the Moto G6 Plus being the latest device to be spotted on benchmarks.

Until today, it was previously thought that Motorola’s G6 Plus would utilize Qualcomm’s slightly less powerful Snapdragon 630 chipset, due to the fact that last year’s G5 Plus and G5S Plus used the Snapdragon 625 processor. Thanks to a new Geekbench listing, however, it appears Motorola has instead opted to equip the smartphone with the higher-end octa-core Snapdragon 660 processor, although the multi-core score obtained of 4123 is pretty low for this chipset. In any case, 4GB of RAM will once again be making a return alongside what will most likely be 64GB of internal storage, although it’s worth noting that a 32GB variant with 3GB of RAM is to be expected. Anyhow, in addition to all of this, as expected from any Motorola release, the smartphone will be running stock Android 8.0 Oreo straight out of the box. Design-wise, the new Motorola-branded device will keep the glass build that debuted on last year’s Moto G5S line, while stretching the screen to a 5.7-inch, 18:9 panel, which also means that both reduced top and bottom bezels will be present, the latter of which will include a front-facing fingerprint scanner.

In terms of the camera department, a main 12-megapixel sensor is rumored to be present on the rear accompanied by a secondary 5-megapixel lens. Also, a 16-megapixel selfie camera will be featured up front alongside an LED flash. The Moto G6 Plus is currently set to launch on April 19 alongside the regular Moto G6 and the budget Moto G6 Play, although an exact release date is yet to be confirmed by Motorola.

Very interesting development! Hope that it's true!! If the g6 plus has the 660 then it will be a must buy!!!

The other way around also holds true i.e. if this phone does not have SD-660 , then Nokia 7 Plus is a better buy, especially for stock Android Fans like me.

If it has the SD 660. Then that chip is really a flagship chip, but is mid range in name. Especially when it's using the Adreno 512 GPU. That GPU is rated for VR and AR, which is some of the most taxing graphics around. The SD 660 CPU uses 8 Kyro cores. These are not the run of the mill Cortex-A57 or A53 cores. All 8 cores are using the higher performance Qualcomm custom Kyro architecture. Plus it supports dual channel 1866 MHz ram. It can even capture from two 16 MP cameras simultaneously. It's even manufactured using 14 nm technology. Has Bluetooth 5.1, WiFi ac, and it can even support gigabit LTE. Like I said this chip is no slouch.

Yep. It would be even better with stock Android ! Nokia 7 Plus / Moto G6 Plus. Love the competition. Hope the rumors pan out.

The Moto GX is pretty much stock. Only they just added some really handy features that are not intrusive and actually enhance the users experience to make it better. The Moto G6's might come with Android 8.1 instead of Android 8.0 found on the Nokia.

This seems very unlikely, the SD660 should score much higher than that, hell the SD625 scores nearly the same, this seems more likely to be a SD630 score.

Just tested my G5 Plus with SD625. Single core: 842. Multicore: 4143. So definitely a fake this one. The SD660 should score near 1600 single core and over 5000 multicore.

It's great news. Performance wise this is how SD chips line up imo. SD 425 = 430 = 435 < 450

425 = 430 = 435 < 450

The SD 450 supports full HD+ graphics. So resolutions like 2160x1080 are supported. The SD 660 can support resolutions of QHD or slightly higher.

425 = 427 = 430 = 435 < 450

Is that a mother flipper 18:9 screen ratio?

This could have some serious implications for the cameras it will come with. Hopefully dual 16 mega pixel

It could be the 636 which is basically a lower clocked 660. Either one will be great though just not 630. I found an article benching the 636 in the redmi note 5 pro. It compares with the SD652, SD820, and SD810 in various tests.

I don't know where you got your information, but to say the SD 636 compared with the SD 652 is one thing. But to compare it with the SD 810 and SD 820 is another. No way does the 636 compare to either the 810 or 820 in terms of speed and benchmarking. BTW Geekbench is by far the worst benchmarking tool on the market.

Definitely, results are from SD630. Someone just photoshopped and added 660 details.

Go to SD 630 there should be no problem; if it were the Sd 660 better, but that would increase the plus price. The two processors are valid because they represent the mid-range 2018.

And yet...............no notification light, common of Moto devices.

As per the history and strategy.. they might not use 660. Then it is huge problem for their X4. We should feel happy if they choose 630 instead of 626...
