Lenovo-owned Motorola is all geared up to launch its new Moto G6-series and while we will get the Motorola Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus and the Moto G6 Play, the conventional model of the series which is the Motorola Moto G6 has recently surfaced on benchmark site Geekbench.
For the unknown, Motorola Moto G6 was earlier rumored to come with the Snapdragon 450 SoC, an 18:9 display and Android Oreo out of the box. However, the Geekbench listing reveals that the smartphone will come with a powerful and efficient Snapdragon 625 processor under the hood.
If it turns out to be true then Motorola Moto G6 will be powered by the same chipset which featured in last year’s Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus. Moreover, since the Moto G6 will be competing with the recently Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, which is also powered by the same SoC, it will be a great move by Lenovo.
As per the benchmark test results, the Motorola Moto G6 scored 709 and 3582 in single core and multi-core test, respectively. The listed device runs Android 8.0 out of the box, while its motherboard is listed as MSM8953.
However, Geekbench also lists the octa-core chipset with 1.80GHz speed, which is a little bit confusing as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC comes with a maximum clocked speed of 2.0 GHz and it is the Snapdragon 450 SoC that a 1.8GHz maximum clock speed.
As for other specifications, Motorola Moto G6 will come with 3GB of RAM while the Plus will feature 4GB RAM coupled with a similar processor. Coming to the display, the smartphone will feature a 5.7-inch panel with 18:9 aspect ratio while there is no word on the camera module.
That said, if we go by the Moto G5S-duo, the Motorola Moto G6 might come with a single camera sensor at the rear while a dual-camera module could be seen in the G6 Plus. The whole package will be backed by a 4000mAh battery with fast charging.
The design language of both the Motorola Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus will reportedly be based on the Moto X4 with glass and metal design coupled with curved rear panels. The fingerprint scanner is rumored to be embedded into the physical home screen button up front while the Moto G6 Play will have a fingerprint scanner placed on the rear panel.
Coming to the pricing details, not much has been revealed about the Motorola Moto G6-series’ pricing but there have been reports which suggest that the Moto G6 will be priced close to the Rs 15,000 mark.
Apart from that, the Moto G6 Plus with a 5.93-inch 18:9 display and the Moto G6 Play with a 5.7-inch panel are expected to the priced at Rs 17000 and Rs 12000, respectively.
