Leaked Photo Could Show Moto's Upcoming G6 Lineup

The MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2018 is set to happen next month but already, people around the world are looking forward to the devices that smartphone manufacturers will be introducing. Some of the devices we can expect to see during the 4-day event include the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. But what do the other brands have up their sleeves?

If you're a Motorola fan, you may be looking forward to what the smartphone manufacturer has in store for this year. Well, it looks like we may be looking at the very first photos of the Moto G6, G6 Plus, and the G6 Play.

Earlier today, Droid-Life published photos they received showing off the three devices. The website was unable to verify a second source but they cited these devices as what Evan Blass tweeted about a few months ago. The website also provided additional details about the specs and pricing of the Moto G6.

Their source details that the Moto G6 lineup will have a design similar to Motorola's X4 released last year. It will be carrying the same 3D glass, odd-looking camera, and an all-metal frame as the G5 lineup had last year. What's new for this year's model, however, is the 18:9 display with Full HD 1080p format. 

As for the upgrades on the Moto G6, the source shows that Motorola will be equipping the device with a Snapdragon 450 processor instead of a Snapdragon 430 seen on the G5S last year. Meanwhile, the G6 Plus is expected to have a Snapdragon 630 as compared to a Snapdragon 625 that was seen on its predecessor, the G5S Plus. As for the battery, the G6 is said to have a 3000mAh battery while the G6 Plus will get a 3200mAh battery. The Moto G6 Play, meanwhile, is expected to have a 4000mAh battery.

The displays on each of these devices will be upgraded too. Both the G6 and G6 Play will have a 5.7-inch display with an FHD+ on the G6 and HD on the G6 Play. The G6 Plus will be having a 5.93-inch FHD+ display. Since last year's devices paved the way for fingerprint readers, this can be expected across the G6 lineup too.

As for the color choices, the G6 will be available in a black, silver, and rose gold option. The G6 Plus will be available in Deep Indigo (black), Dark Lake (dark teal), and Nimbus (silver) colors. Lastly, the G6 Play is expected to have gold, deep blue, and dark charcoal color options. Although nothing is official (yet), the G6 and G6 Plus are expected to be priced around $240 and $330, respectively.

There is no mention of a launch date. But if our guesses are right, Motorola could be releasing these devices in MWC.

  1. I look forwadr too buying one. Thanks

  2. so if fhd+ stands for full hd then is hd partial hd? can someone explain this? also what does the + mean?

    1. The + means it has a larger size screen. I read that on another site.

    2. HD, FHD and FHD+ refer to different screen resolutions:
      HD "High Definition" = 1280x720px
      FHD "Full HD" = 1920x1080px
      FHD+ "Full HD Plus" = 2160x1440px

      See Graphics display resolution - Wikipedia for the standardized names of other screen resolutions.

    3. I think the meaning of the terms varies, and Wikipedia isn't the arbiter. In this case, the '+' signifies the new 18:9 format, ie 2160x1080.

      BTW, 18:9 displays are actually smaller than 16:9 displays where it matters--the width of the display when in portrait mode, because screen width is the constraining factor on how much can be shown on the screen, not the height. Go here,


      and select aspect ratio, then enter diagonal measurement, then check out the "height" (ie the width when in portrait).

      5.5" 16:9 display has 2.7" width (G4 Plus, G5s Plus)
      5.7" 18:9 display has 2.5" width (G6)
      5.93" 18:9 display has 2.7" width (G6 Plus)

      So, G6 Plus has the same effective size as earlier models, but it's just longer and more unwieldy to use. Base on this alone, I would favor the G6 Play if it can ditch the dubious 18:9 trend that users are going gah-gah over.

  3. Read the source from Droid Life the article is more accurate and contains more information than this one.

  4. I hope the new aspect ratio means the device won't get any wider - I already have to use the screen-shrinking feature on my G4+ to use it single-handed. I can't downgrade to the smaller screens because I need the extra RAM & CPU horsepower (the 617 in the G4+ is really starting to annoy me).

  5. Eventually people will carry phones that the size of a backpack. In a few years, men will be carrying purses because phones will no longer fit into clothing. I hope smaller screen phones will become fashionable.

  6. "Too tiny to use" sub-5-inch phones deserve to vanish from the marketplace.

    The size between 5 and 6.5 inches is the sweet spot, the Goldilocks spot, for phones. Good luck finding a tiny backpack for a 6.5" phone, Captain Hyperbole.

  7. Look to be powerful Motorola phones at reasonable prices. $900 and up is not my smart choice in spending money.

  8. Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play new leak leaves nothing to the imagination - Phonescoop - https://www.phonearena.com/news/New-Pictures-of-the-Moto-G6-Family-Arrive_id101746 ALSO mysmartprice -https://www.mysmartprice.com/gear/2018/01/17/moto-g6-plus-play-images-exclusive/

  9. So it looks like the hivemind's kept up the pace while I've been in a Star Wars induced joy coma the past few weeks, but I think you rabid curs are all still forgetting something very important:

    These phones are incredibly ugly.

    Look at the Huawei 7x. Then look at the Moto G6.

    Now try to finish enriching the nearby trash bin before these fuggos go on sale, because there's gonna be a line forming behind you.

    Anyway, Lenovo needs to get it in their heads that mobile phones should be as flat as the earth, instead of trying to force their thick protruding cameras down all our throats.

    That, and I bet these suckers don't even come with a removable battery.

    It's like they asked people what they wanted in the next G series and then did the exact opposite.

    Personally, I'm giving these trashy things a big ol' pass unless they go for pennies on my dollar.
