Moto G6 full family pops up in leaked renders, looks shiny
As far as we know, Motorola is about to announce a trio of new smartphones just next week. They will all be siblings with the G6 moniker, named Moto G6 Play, Moto G6, and Moto G6 Plus. 

All three phones are expected to be affordable midrangers, with the G6 sporting a Snapdragon 450 chip, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh battery; the G6 Play would be even more affordable with a Snapdragon 430 processor and a larger 4,000 mAh cell; and the G6 Plus would be the most powerful of the three, with a Snapdragon 630 SoC instead.

Now, we get leaked renders of all three devices.

As you may have noticed, the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus both sport dual cameras on their backs. Those are rumored to be 12 MP shooters with a 5 MP assistive camera for depth effects. On the front, both would have a 16 MP selfie snapper with a dedicated LED flash.

The Moto G6 Play, being the most affordable, skips the secondary camera on the back. But it still maintains the design language, with a rugged-looking ring, which is nice. It’s main shooter is supposedly a 13 MP one and the selfie camera is an 8 MP one, still with a LED flash for selfies in the dark.

As far as how legitimate those leaks are — we can’t guarantee the source is right, but the design language does look a lot like what Motorola has been going for lately and this leak does overlap with previous renders and real-life images we’ve seen. So, we’d say, it could be on point.

It's a good upgrade for Moto g users but not for Moto x users...

Yeah I'll waiting to see how these price out against the Honor 7x. At this point the Honor 7x/Huawei Mate SE are the budget kings.

The Honor 7x has a Kirin 659 with Android Nougat (7) with Huawei twist put on it, and it's GPU is rated at 30 gigaflops for it's mali-T830 MP2 GPU. It doesn't even have a gyroscope. Plus it only supports WiFi N, and cat 4 LTE. Also the Kirin 659 is manufactured at 28 nm. The Moto G6 SD 450 is manufactured at 14 nm, its GPU (506) is rated at 120 gigaflops. The G6 also has WiFi ac, cat 13 LTE, and a gyroscope. Oh, and the G6 has Android Oreo 8.1 out of the box. No competition, the G6 is better, and it's guaranteed to get later and more updates.

Are you crazy...?? Kirin 659 is clearly in the same league as SD 625/630. Honor 7X is undoubtedly the best budget option for the broader marker right now as it is readily available in the USA too. It has 4GB RAM and great battery life and that modern 18:9 design. Yes it's GPU is a bit inferior to the adreno 506 and 508. But Kirin 659 processor is way ahead of it's counterparts in terms of power saving and persistent performance. The RAM bandwidth of 7X is much higher than other usual opponents.

Kirin 659 is 16nm. Also, the 7x has been updated to Oreo already. All the other negatives are TOTALLY worth it when either compared to the similarly priced G6 or the much more expensive g6+. Which is even crazier given that the 7x is at least six months older. Idk how much longer moto is going to last. The only one of these phones worth considering is the g6+ but $330 is quite the pill to swallow. Consumers will either go cheaper with a few sacrifices (7x) or a bit more expensive for way better processors (last year's flagships).

Hoping to hear something special about the cameras. Obviously can't expect Pixel quality but hoping it can still impress.
