Earlier this week, we brought to you the first clear image of the upcoming Moto E5 budget smartphone. In a new leak, the folks over at Droid-life have managed to access images showing the entire 2018 Moto lineup. These include the Moto Z3, Moto Z3 Play, Moto X5, Moto G6 Plus, Moto G6, and the Moto G6 Play. Along with the images, key specs of all the upcoming Motorola smartphones have also been revealed in the leak.
Successor to last year’s Moto X4, the Moto X5 will feature a notch at the top of its display, similar to the iPhone X. What seems a little weird is that the smartphone doesn’t seem to have a fingerprint sensor anywhere. This could either mean that the smartphone will feature an under-display fingerprint sensor similar to the upcoming Vivo X20 Plus UD or Motorola may have decided to get rid of the fingerprint sensor in favor of facial recognition.
The smartphone is tipped to sport a 5.9-inch 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. In terms of imaging, it will sport dual cameras both at the front as well as the rear. The leak also reveals Moto XP’s, said to be Moto’s Smart AI solution.
Unlike last year’s G5 models, the Moto G6 and the other G6 series smartphones will feature a 3D glass rear panel. The G6 will feature a 5.7-inch 18:9 display with 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution and run on the Snapdragon 450 SoC. In the memory department, the smartphone will be offered in two configurations – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. At the rear, G6 will sport a dual-camera setup with a 12MP primary and 5MP secondary sensor. On the front will be a 16MP snapper for selfies. Keeping the lights on will be a 3000mAh battery. The smartphone will be available in Black, Silver, and Rose Gold colors at launch. In the US, the G6 is expected to retail for around $240 (Rs.15,300 approx.).
Moto G6 Plus
The Moto G6 Plus will come with a larger 5.93-inch display offering the same Full HD+ resolution. Under the hood, it will run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630 octa-core SoC, paired with up to 6GB of RAM. It will also sport a larger battery than the G6, rated at 3200mAh. The Moto G6 Plus will be available in Deep Indigo, Dark Lake, and Nimbus colors. Thanks to its superior specifications, the G6 Plus is expected to be priced at around $330 (Rs.21,000 approx.) in the US.
Moto G6 Play
The most affordable of all G6 models this year will be the Moto G6 Play. Unlike the G6 and G6 Plus, the G6 Play will sport a more traditional 16:9 aspect ratio 5.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution. Its key USP will be the large 4000mAh battery inside. The fingerprint sensor, unlike the G6 and G6 Play, will be positioned at the back. It will be available in three colors at launch – Deep Blue, Gold, and Dark Charcoal.
Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play
The Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play are expected to sport a 6-inch 18:9 display with 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution. Unlike the Moto X5, the Z3 duo will not feature a notch at the top. However, just like the Moto X5, the Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play do not seem to have a fingerprint sensor. A third Moto Z3 smartphone is also tipped to launch later this year, sporting a higher resolution display with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC.
