Motorola might have another budget smartphone on the way
Motorola seems to be investing quite heavily in the budget segment this year. It’s already launched the Moto G7 lineup and is rumored to be working on a cheap Android One phone in addition to the next-gen Moto E6. But if a new leak is anything to go by, it has yet another model under development. 

Motorola might have another budget smartphone on the way
Spotted on Geekbench (via Nashville Chatter), the upcoming smartphone looks set to be called the Moto E6 Plus and will presumably act as a slightly bigger and more powerful version of the standard Moto E6. Per the listing, the smartphone will arrive powered by MediaTek’s octa-core Helio P22 and 2GB of RAM which together resulted in 820 points on the single-core test and a total of 3637 points on the multi-core alternative.

The MediaTek chip Motorola has seemingly opted for is comparable to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450, the same chip found inside last year’s Moto G6. For comparison, the standard Moto E6 is expected to use the slightly less powerful Snapdragon 430 which Motorola used inside the Moto G6 Play

Unsurprisingly, today’s Moto E6 Plus listing reveals the presence of Android 9 Pie. Like most other Motorola’s, the budget offering is expected to ship with near-vanilla software and a few customizations that focus on Motorola’s range of apps.

P22 is garbage. I had a phone with that ages ago.
