We all know that Lenovo-owned Motorola is holding an event on the 19th of April, 2018 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The company is expected to unveil its Moto G-series lineup for this year. While we exclusively leaked the design of all the phones in the series — Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play — weeks ahead of the official launch, we have spotted one of the phones in Geekbench’s listing.
Moto G6 Plus: Geekbench Listing
Yesterday, the Moto G6 Play had appeared on Geekbench. Today, we have spotted the Moto G6 Plus. The listing reveals that the Moto G6 Plus will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor and 4GB of RAM to run Android 8.0 Oreo. If this listing is legit, the phone has scored a score of 866 points in the single-core test and 4123 points in the multi-core test.
Moto G6 Plus: Leaked Specifications
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 mobile platform consists of eight Kryo 260 cores (4× Kryo 260 @ 2.2GHz, 4× Kryo 260 @ 1.84GHz), Adreno 512 GPU, and 600Mbps 4G LTE modem. Although the Moto G6 Plus appears to be packing 4GB of RAM in the listing, there could be a variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The rumoured specifications of the phone hint towards a 5.7-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD+ resolution (2160×1080 pixels) and 18:9 aspect ratio. While most Android OEMs are using iPhone X-style display cutouts in their new phones, Motorola seems to be staying away from it, and is continuing the use of 18:9 display with minimal bezels around it. Going by our exclusive image of the Moto G6 Plus, the phone has a front-facing fingerprint reader.
In terms of imaging, the G6 Plus is expected to come with a dual rear-facing camera. The primary sensor could be 12-megapixel, whereas the secondary sensor could have a resolution of 5 megapixels. At the front, selfies and video calling could be handled by possibly a 16MP sensor and an accompanying LED flash could help in low-light conditions. Connectivity-wise, you can expect dual-SIM card slot, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, and a 3.5mm audio port. Last but not least, the whole package could utilise a 3000mAh battery with support for Turbo Charge.
Moto G6 Plus: Expected Launch Date
The launch of the upcoming Moto G-series lineup could happen in India a few weeks after its launch in Brazil on April 19, 2018. However, we don’t know the exact launch date yet. Stay tuned to us as we will be reporting the details of these devices when they go official in the next few days.
