Lenovo’s Motorola brand has got a handful of new models which would be released this year. The models spread across the flagship range to midrange models and even budget phones. The Z17 series caters for the flagship while the G series is Motorola’s midrange army, then there is the budget E series.
Moto’s 2018 G series models will be called G6 and G6 Play. The Moto G6 has just been benchmarked on Geekbench with some of its key specs revealed. Notable among the specs is the presence of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. The G6 is also shown to run Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. The SD 450 Chip was announced last year by Qualcomm.

It comes with features like support for real time Bokeh camera effects, integrated X9 LTE, and an Adreno 506 GPU. The chipset is designed to provide fast connectivity, vibrant displays, and performance that’s both powerful and efficient. The benchmark score shows a considerably higher score than the SD430. On the single core test, SD 450 scored 709 points while it’s multi-core test is 3582. The Moto G6 Play was recently spotted on Geekbench confirming the presence of a Snapdragon 430 mobile platform.
