Lenovo-owned Motorola launched the Moto G series models last month with the Moto G6 Plus emerging on top of the pack. There are indications that Motorola may be working on an even higher-end version of the G6 Plus. A couple of live hands-on images showing the device powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC recently surfaced online.
The images seems to be a benchmark test app running on the phone. Curiously, the Moto G6 Plus presently packs a Snapdragon 660 chipset. The likely possibility here is that the result might have been spoofed or Motorola is working on a Snapdragon 660-powered variant of the G6. From the picture, we can also gather the device will have 6GB of RAM onboard.
It would be recalled that the Moto G6 Plus was also spotted on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 660 chip before it was launched packing SD630 chipset. We also recall the case of the HTC U11 Life which appeared on Geekbench results powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor but the device was launched with a SDM 630 SoC. Popular tipster Roland Quandt had explained that benchmark apps wrongly identifies te Snapdragon 630 as Snapdragon 660. Aside from the new chipset, this leaked model will be identical to the already launched Moto G6 Plus. There’s no official word on this new model so we may as well not raise our hopes.
