After introducing the affordable Moto G6-series in Brazil last month, the Lenovo-owned Motorola brand has now launched the Moto G6, as well as Moto G6, Play in India whereas the Moto G6 Plus has still not made it to the country. For the unknown, the Moto G5S series was indeed an instant hit in the country and keeping that in mind, Motorola has just introduced the Moto G6 in India that comes with a Max Vision display offering an immersive experience, coupled with a dual camera setup at the rear as well as a 16-megapixel selfie camera.
The Moto G6 is the successor to the last year’s Moto G5 and Motorola’s Moto G6 series comes with some major design changes along with minor specifications upgrades. For example, Motorola’s new budget smartphones come with an 18:9 aspect ratio along with glass design at the rear among other upgrades. Moto G6 smartphone will be competing with a tough competition where the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro are the most popular budget Android phones in India.
