Moto G6 Play spotted in hands-on images ahead of launch

We're still not entirely sure exactly when Motorola will officially unveil the 2018 G6 series, but it should be soon - possibly later this month, or early May - since a complete set of renders for all three expected models has been posted online, courtesy of Twitter user Ishan Agarwal. Now just a few days ahead of the official launch, the Moto G6 has been listed on Amazon Canada's website. Three new devices are expected; the Moto G6 Lite, Moto G6 and the top model, the Moto G6 Plus.

Finally, the Moto G6 Play will be available in indigo and gold colours, although the indigo colour here looks different to the indigo of the G6 and G6 Plus, it even looks black from the front.

The Moto G6 Plus also made a score of 866 and 4123 points in Geekbench's single and multi-core tests respectively. All three Moto G6 phones are expected to sport full-screen displays. The Moto G6, from what we know so far, will also sport a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display like the G6 Play. Going by our exclusive image of the Moto G6 Plus, the phone has a front-facing fingerprint reader. However, the fingerprint sensor has been positioned on the back of the handset. The rear camera will apparently be a dual-sensor 12MP and 5MP with an LED flash. The smartphone also comes with a dual-camera. The device will also be sporting a 13MP rear camera along with an 8MP front camera and will be backed by a 4000mAh battery with TurboPower charging tech. The render of the Moto G6 Play, in particular, confirms that it will likely be the only model with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor while the other two will see the sensor placed below the display. The specs sound very promising and it is confirmed that this will be a mid-range smartphone from Motorola powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Previous rumors suggested it will have a Full HD+ display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
