Lenovo-owned Motorola has scheduled a launch event on 19th April where the company is expected to launch its next-generation Moto G-series smartphone — the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus and Moto G6 Play.
Now, ahead of the phone’s official launch, the Moto G6 Play surfaced online in a short hands-on video. The video, which shows a working unit of the phone, reveals the phone’s design which is in line with the previously leaked renders.
However, the video has been removed by the uploader. In the video, the phone was recognized as the Moto G6 Plus but given the lack of dual camera setup at the back side, the unit seemed to be the Moto G6 Play. According to the previous reports, Moto G6 and G6 Plus will pack dual camera setup while the budget-friendly G6 Play will have a single camera sensor at the back.
Further, Moto G6 Play is the only model among the three to have a fingerprint sensor placed on the back panel, below the camera module. The other two smartphones — Moto G6 and G6 Plus will feature a fingerprint sensor on the front side, below the display.
The specifications of Moto G6 Play were leaked earlier and suggests that the phone will come with a 5.7-inch HD+ Max Vision display with, 18:9 aspect ratio and 1440 x 720 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, it is powered by a quad-core processor from Qualcomm, clocked at 1.4GHz, likely to be Snapdragon 430. It will pack 2GB or 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The smartphone is said to come with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash and a beauty mode, while it will feature a 13-megapixel camera sensor on the rear. Sadly, there is no mention of all the cool features of the Moto G6, such as live filters, object and landmark recognition, portrait mode, and active photos.
Along with Dolby Audio and Moto Experiences support, the device will also come with a new voice assistant that lets the user use phone hands-free. One of the highlights of the G6 Play will be its battery capacity as the company is expected to offer 4,000mAh battery which is claimed by Motorola to last 36 hours on a single charge.
Recently, the Moto G6-series smartphones were listed online on American retailer Frys. In the listing, the Moto G6 Play was priced at $199.99 with an expected shipping date of 19th May.
