Lenovo-owned Motorola, earlier in the week unveiled the new Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play and now, both the devices are available for purchase on Amazon and Flipkart, respectively.
Motorola Moto G6 flaunts an uni-body design with a metallic shell on the back and on the front, it sports a 5.7-inch full HD+ Max Vision display with 18:9 aspect ratio.
Inside, it houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 3GB/4GB RAM and a 32GB/64GB internal memory (with microSD card slot), Android Oreo, a dual 12MP + 5MP primary camera setup and an 8MP front-facing camera and a 3,000mAh cell.
On the other hand, the low-end model Moto G6 Play comes with 5.7-inch HD (1280x720p) display, 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 chipset, a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP front snapper and a 4,000mAh battery with 10W TurboCharger.
When will Moto G6 Plus come to India?
Lenovo's Thomas Milner, head of product, marketing in an interaction with the media confirmed that Moto G6 Plus will be released in India, but refrained from disclosing actual time frame of the launch.
We believe the Moto G6 Plus will be rolled out probably in July or early August so that the Moto X4 and Moto Z2 Play, which fall under same price bracket (Rs 18,000-Rs 23,000), get enough time on the store shelves or else the former might cannibalize their sales.
For unaware, Motorola Moto G6 Plus sports similar metallic unibody design language of the Moto G6, but come 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.
