Moto E6 Plus Running MediaTek Helio P22 SoC, 2GB RAM Spotted on Geekbench


Motorola launched its Z series Moto Z4 mid-range Android smartphone in North America last week, just two weeks after launching the Android One Motorola One Vision. However, the Lenovo-owned company is yet to launch its next-generation E series smartphones. A leak that surfaced online in April had claimed the E6 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 32-bit processor. We have now spotted the Moto E6 Plus on the Geekbench benchmark database, revealing a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset inside.

Moto E6 Plus Might be Powered by a MediaTek Helio P22 Processor

The Motorola Moto E6 Plus listing on Geekbench reveals the upcoming entry-level Android smartphone will be powered by a 12nm MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz. Built on TSMC’s 12nm process, the Helio P22 uses eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores and an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Going by the Geekbench listing, the Moto E6 Plus will come equipped with 2GB of RAM and run on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system. Taking a look at the benchmark scores, the Moto E6 Plus scored 829 points in the single-core test and 3,687 points in the multi-core test.

The Moto E6, on the other, is expected to run on a 28nm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor with an Adreno 505 GPU. According to XDA Developers Editor-in-Chief Mishaal Rahman, the smartphone will have 2GB RAM and come in 16GB as well as 32GB storage options. At the rear, Motorola’s upcoming entry-level smartphone will have a 13MP S5K3L6 sensor with an f/2.0 aperture. For selfies, the handset will feature a 5MP sensor on the front with the same f/2.0 aperture. The Moto E6 is tipped to come with a 5.45-inch sized display panel featuring 720 x 1440 HD+ resolution. Apart from a more modern chipset, the Moto E6 Plus is likely to be more impressive than the standard E6 in a few other areas as well. The standard Moto E6 was spotted at the FCC last month, so we may see the E6 series phones go official sometime in the near future.
