Lenovo-owned Motorola is all geared up to launch the company's Moto G5 series successor in India next week on June 4. The company has partnered Flipkart and Amazon to exclusively sell the Moto G6 Play and Moto G6, respectively.
Moto G6 series: All you need to know
For those unaware, Moto G6 sports 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, Android Oreo, 3GB/4GB RAM and a 32GB/64GB internal memory (with microSD card slot), and a 3,000mAh cell. It features a dual 12MP + 5MP primary camera setup and an 8MP front camera.
In India, the Moto G6, for its specifications, is expected cost anywhere between Rs 13,000 to Rs 15,000.
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. Moto G6 Play might cost around Rs 9,000 and Rs 12,000.
Motorola Moto G6 series vs competition:
When will Moto G6 Plus come to India?
The Motorola Moto G6 series made its global debut last month in Brazil. It comes in three variants—the budget Moto G6 Play, a generic Moto G6 and the top-end Moto G6 Plus. In India, though, only two of these models will be launched on Monday.
We believe the Moto G6 Plus will be rolled out later, probably in July so that the lower-end models get enough time on the store shelves or else the G6 Plus might cannibalize their sales.
Motorola Moto G6 Plus sports similar metallic unibody design language of the Moto G6, but comes with a bigger 5.99-inch Full HD+ (2160x1080p) display that features an aspect ratio of 18:9. 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.
