Announcing this, Motorola tweeted, “It’s time to ask for more from your smartphone. Get ready to say hello to the #MotoG6Plus, which is #BuiltForMore with a smart camera and serious performance! Stay tuned.”
Currently, there’s no information available about the phone’s pricing but given that the India pricing of Moto G6 and G6 Play starts at Rs. 11,999 and Rs. 13,999, we are expecting the Moto G6 Plus to be priced around Rs. 20,000.
The Moto G6 Plus comes with a larger 5.9-inch MAX Vision Full HD+ display with 2160 x 1080 pixels screen resolution, 18:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The glass on the back panel is also protected by a layer of Gorilla Glass.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz along with Adrenographicsaphic processor. It comes in two variants — 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB internal storage. There’s also a microSD card support for up to 128GB of storage expansion.
Coming to the optics, there’s a 12-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor on the back. There’s an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper with an LED flash for taking selfies and video calling.
There’s a fingerprint sensor on the back side, embedded inside the Moto logo, even though the phone supports Face Unlock feature. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer.
The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out-of-the-box and is powered by a 3,200mAh battery with support for Motorola’s TurboPower that claims to deliver 7 hours of usage on a charge of 15 minutes.
