Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play new leak leaves nothing to the imagination

Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play new leak leaves nothing to the imagination
The nearly full 2018 Motorola line-up has just recently leaked out in a show-breaker that Evan Blass, the most prolific phone leaker, classified as the most "thorough, early and potentially damaging to the company".

Now, we get one more source that confirms that the leak is indeed trust-worthy as Chinese publication MySmartPrice has uncovered new leaked photos of the Moto G6 series that confirm what the first look already showed, but in more detail.

This latest leak confirms: Motorola will launch the Moto G6, Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus soon, likely at Mobile World Congress at the end of February, and the three devices will have a brand new glass-and-metal design, similar to that of last year's Moto X4.

Moto G6 Play: the cheapest one

The Moto G6 Play is expected to be the most affordable of the trio with the biggest compromise being a 16:9 aspect ratio screen and the lack of a dual camera system on the back. Interestingly, it is said to have its fingerprint hidden in the Motorola logo on the back, while the other two will have a fingerprint scanner up front, below the display. Another curious detail is that despite its lower price, the Moto G6 Play could actually have the biggest battery of all three: a 4,000 mAh cell.

Here are the expected specs of the Moto G6 Play:

  • 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

Moto G6

The Moto G6 will also be a cheap phone, yet still slightly pricier than the G6 Play, and it will feature an 18:9 aspect ratio screen with small bezels, as well as a dual camera system.

Here is a quick look at the expected specs:

  • 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
  • $240 expected price

Moto G6 Plus

The Moto G6 Plus will have the largest screen and cost the most out of these three, but will still be quite affordable. The big jump here is not only in the bigger screen size, but most importantly in the mid-range, Snapdragon 630 processor that will deliver significantly more power.

Here is a quick look at its rumored specs:

  • 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
  • $330 expected price

What do you think about Motorola's new family of affordable phones? Do you like the new looks?

Why didn't they just add a bit of extra effort to embed that fps in the back with the other models too, looks kinda cool and they could've decreased the bottom bezel a bit more that way.

I think many of us want FPS at the front.

Back_from_beyond We gotta be honest with ourselves, though: The average user is just gonna chuck the phone over their shoulder after a year or less, and there's a very large demographic of consumers who accept this...This demographic also consist of ppl you'll be less likely to see at a flagship store waiting for repairs, because they've most likely already been through that and just wanna phone for what it's meant: To simply be phone. Wasn't until I'd had a conversation with a friend of mine about his iPhone that I'd realized just how strange it must be to be an Android user: We expect so much of our OEMs and phones that you'd think we were expecting them to create mini desktop computers and the reality is that, in many rights, we do. lol

Looks really nice, though I agree that they should've went with the FPS on the back instead, or even either one of the sides, tbh.

Rear camera looks creepy.

That bigger pixels 12 MP flagship camera is the best in the midrange.Folks talking about putting FPS back & front are confusing OEMs.This confusion will be settled after FPS under the display becomes mainstream.

I'm liking the Moto G6 Plus, the model with 6gb of RAM. Hopefully the battery will be at LEAST 3500mah.

No No No Motorola the Basic G6 is Too large for the users who but that, my parents have had the the last 3 G phones & love them but they dont want a Phone screen bigger than 5.2 inch the phone dimensions will be too big.

i think the screen size numbers are going to be a little misleading with the new aspect ratio and thinner may be similar in size.

The 6GB RAM model of Moto G6 Plus would be a good buy at $300. If they charge $300 for 4GB RAM or less, no thanks. Let's hope it also comes with NFC.

What's with the weird textured circle around the rear camera?

Dont go with Moto G series. They will only provide 1 or 2 security updates in 1 year. Lots of basic stuff like Call Volume has not been fixed on Moto G5 Plus increase its launch in March, 2017.

I have no problems with mine whatsoever. I've had 3 security updates and 1 OS update so far. Oreo is supposedly coming in February.

What OS upgrade you are taking about? The phone was launched with 7.0 and still it is on 7.0. What 3 security updates you have recieved? Are you from Motorola marketing team making false claim on behalf of the Chinese company. Rubbish phone and rubbish company. Head over to Lenovo support forum and see the suffering Moto G5 Plus customers.

Yea, good job DorkLife, I hope they 86 you from any and all future announcements, promotions, etc...just so you could be "FIRST"

Please, no glass! It likely won’t have wireless charging, so why make it more breakable??

Even if they did use all glass, we should give them credit for taking advantage of the fact that most of the public still believes that glass (one of the world's cheapest materials to make anything with) equates to some degree of "premium" lol

NONE of these are a phone I'm looking for. An over priced large phone or weak, overpriced regular phones. No thank you

What I like about Motorola is they have their own design language. Unlike other players like Huawei who tries too hard to look like an iPhone.

How is 16:9 a compromise?
