Motorola's new G6 lineup – Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus and Moto G6 Play, gets leaked

Motorola fans rejoice, as your favorite brand has quite a few surprises in store for you. Well, not anymore since they all ended up on the internet, but that no reason not to be excited, right?

There was no doubt that the G5 lineup will be followed by the G6, although some wondered if another G Play smartphone would be part of the new lineup once again. Well, apparently the answer is affirmative, at least according to some official (or not) images that have just leaked online. In fact, this is just a confirmation of what Evan Blass pointed out back in October.

So, there will be three G6 smartphones unveiled at some point this year (possibly at Mobile World Congress): Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play. The “star” of the lineup is, of course, the Moto G6 Plus, which is said to sport a large 5.93-inch FHD+ display and a decent Snapdragon 630 processor.

There will be a couple of Moto G6 Plus variations launched based on the amount of memory: 3GB/4GB/6GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage. Also, the smartphone will feature a rear dual camera setup (12MP+5MP), along with a 16-megapixel selfie camera in the front and a 3,200 mAh battery.

Next in line, the standard Moto G6 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, coupled with either 3GB or 4GB RAM and 32GB or 64GB internal memory. It will come with a similar camera configuration as the Moto G6 Plus, but it will sport a slightly smaller 5.7-inch FHD+ display and 3,000 mAh battery.

Both Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus come with fingerprint sensors and 18:9 displays. They will be available for purchase for $240 and $330, respectively.

Finally, the Moto G6 Play has a 5.7-inch HD (720p) display and a massive 4,000 mAh battery. Unlike the other two, the Moto G6 Play will have its fingerprint sensors moved on the back since it doesn't feature a home button. No other details are available for this one.

So, to sum it up, Motorola has quite a few smartphones to launch this year: Moto E5, Moto X5, Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, Moto G6 Play, Moto Z3, and Moto Z3 Play. Lovely!

Prices aren't competitive. Sony's offerings were better and for raw value its the honor 7x. Why is the g6 plus starting at $330. That's what happenes when they have too many overlapping offerings and variants.

If they didn't have the words "moto" and "motorola" on the bottom bezel they could've made it a little bit smaller :(

So Expensive! I guess I'm gonna have to go 7x. It already sells around $175 on swappa...

They slimmed down the bezels which is good but it looks similar to the x4.

So Expensive! I suppose it'll be the 7x this year. The SD450 is not that good (no cache) for $240?? The 7x already sells around $175 on swappable...

Bezels don't bother me, is just a phone, not making love to it. Also, the difference between Moto and a say Xiaomi, Moto works perfectly with Verizon, Sprint in addition to the other GSM carriers.

I have a Moto G4 Plus, and I will NEVER purchase another Lenovo/Moto phone. Yes it was/is a budget phone but it's hampered by a sluggish chip and the screen burn in issue that Lenovo seems to refuse to acknowledge. I HATE that I can only set the screen time out to 30 minutes and that it's still stuck on Nougat. I still paid a lot for a mediocre experience. I spent almost $300 and the newest Moto's don't seem to be any better for the price point. $300+ for a mediocre processor and measly battery? Nope.
