Meet the real Motorola Moto G6 (to be announced soon, probably)

Motorola Mobility hasn’t announced any new phones this year, but, in the near future, it will likely unveil several models at once. These should be the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play - all succeeding the Moto G5 family of 2017. 

After seeing various renders depicting the full Moto G6 series, we can now take a look at real photos presenting the regular G6 (not the Plus, nor the Play). These photos - embedded below - have been released by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center, aka TENAA, so they’re 100% genuine. 

The new photos seemingly confirm the presence of a fingerprint scanner on the front of the Motorola Moto G6, as well as an overall design that’s reminiscent of last year’s Moto X4 (although with thinner bezels - unfortunately not visible in the new images).  

Reportedly powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, the Moto G6 should sport a 5.7-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio display (likely with 1080 x 2160 pixels), further featuring a dual rear camera (12 MP + 5 MP), a 16 MP front-facing camera, up to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The handset could cost around $240. 

Similar to the Moto G5 series, the Moto G6 family will probably be sold in the US unlocked, offering multi-carrier compatibility. We’ll be here to let you know more about Motorola’s next-gen smartphones as soon as new details are available.

Looks like another flop with 2800 mAh battery, judging from the thickness. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Your wrong alright. The SD 430 is 28 nm vs 14 NM for the SD 450. The SD 450 is clocked at 1.8 GHz vs 1.4 GHz for the SD 430. The SD 450 GPU is over 30% faster. The SS 450 can also use faster ram. Overall the SD 450 is a lot faster than the SD 430.

Everything looks fine except for the SD450 processor. Why not use the SD 660? It would be a perfect 2nd device.

I wouldn't go that far. The 636 is damn impressive and is essentially a pared back 660. It did appear in the $200 redmi note 5 pro so why not a $300 Moto?
