Motorola had earlier teased on Twitter the upcoming launch of the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play in India and now, the company has revealed the release date and availability details.
Motorola India in collaboration with Amazon has opened the dedicated Moto G6 webpage confirming the device will be exclusive to the latter's e-commerce site and it will be available for purchase on June 4. However, there is no word on the price and also when the low-end Moto G6 Play will be launched. We just have to wait a couple of weeks to know those facts.
The upcoming Motorola will replace the Moto G5s series. It comes with several upgrades both in terms of internal hardware specification and design language.
The Moto G6sports uni-body design having a metallic shell on the back and on the front it features 5.7-inch full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Under-the-hood, it comes packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, 3GB/4GB RAM and a 32GB/64GB internal memory (with microSD card slot), a dual 12MP + 5MP primary camera setup and an 8MP front-facing camera and a 3,000mAh cell.
On the other hand, the Moto G6 Play model features a 5.7-inch HD (1280x720p) display, 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor, a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP front snapper and a 4,000mAh battery with 10W TurboCharger.
Last month, Motorola had also unveiled Moto G6 Plus along with the Moto G6 and the G6 Play in Brazil. But, it looks like the company might launch the top-end model later, probably in July so that the generic model gets at least a month of store shelf space rather than get cannibalised by its big brother.
Motorola Moto G6 Plus sports similar metallic unibody design language of the Moto G6, but comes with bigger 5.99-inch Full HD+ (2160x1080p) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Other features include a fingerprint sensor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor, 4GB/6GB RAM and 32GB/64GB storage, a dual 12MP + 5MP main camera, an 8MP front-snapper and a 3,200mAh battery.
