More Moto G6, Plus and Play specs leak out, along with their prices

Info about Motorola's upcoming phones is leaking from all sides these days, indicating that Moto may launch a G6, G6 Play and G6 Plus very soon, likely at the Mobile World Congress at the end of February. The three devices will purportedly have a brand new glass-and-metal design, similar to that of last year's Moto X4.

While the design already leaked out, in a beautiful, trendy 18:9 screen format, the specs have been the subject of speculation for a good month now, with just one piece of info trickling down the rumor pipe. Until today, that is, when we reiterate most there is to learn about the number-crunching silicon inside the phones, their screen resolutions and battery configs, but, perhaps most importantly, the expected pricing tags.

The leader of the new Moto pack is the G6 Plus, buzzing in with an upper midrange Snapdragon 630 chipset, Full HD+ display, and having a decent 3,250 mAh battery to keep the lights on. This one should go for the equivalent of $265, very good pricing. 

  • 5.93-inch Full HD screen, 18:9 aspect ratio
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chip
  • 12MP+5MP rear camera, 16MP front camera
  • Models with up to 6GB RAM + 64GB storage


If you need an exorbitant endurance on a charge, the Moto G6 Play will have you covered with a 4,000 mAh pack, frugal Snapdragon 430 processor, and HD+ screen res, so we can see this puppy hit 2-3 days on a charge with above average usage easily. It will also be only about $190, making it a perfect backup travel companion.

  • 5.7-inch HD screen, 16:9 aspect ratio
  • Fingerprint embedded in Moto logo on the back
  • 3 color versions: Dark Charcoal, Deep Blue and Gold
  • Single rear camera, front camera with LED flash



For a few tens more, you could have the Moto G6, upgraded with a Snapdragon 450 and Full HD+ display, but a 3,000 mAh battery. That middle-of-the-road one is supposed to land at the equivalent of $235, or just about $30 less than the better-equipped G6 Plus, so we'll see which one will prove to be more popular. 

  • 5.7-inch Full HD screen, 18:9 aspect ratio
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chip
  • 12MP+5MP rear camera, 16MP front camera
  • 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB + 64GB storage models
  • 3,000 mAh battery


We are going to the MWC expo next week, and will keep our eyes peeled for any and all of the new Motorola trio's members to give you a preview.
