Lenovo-owned Motorola is tight-lipped on its upcoming products but reports have claimed that it would release not just one but three mid-budget smartphones namely Moto G6, G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play sometime next month.
Motorola is expected to unveil the Moto G6, G6 Plus and Moto G6 Play at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2018 (MCW 2018) to be held from February 26 to March 1 in Barcelona.
All eyes will be on the handsets following the popularity of their predecessors – Moto G-series to be precise. The Lenovo-owned company appears to be coming up with a Play variant through Moto G6 Play after skipping last year when the Moto G5 and G5s were released. It is expected to have a 5.7-inch HD display with 1280x720p resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, a 2GB/3GB RAM, a 16GB/32GB storage and a 4,000mAh battery.
The other two variants – Moto G6 and G6 Plus – are also expected to have several feature upgrades over their predecessors Moto G5s and Moto G5s Plus. This is how these handsets may stack up against each other:
