Motorola’s Moto G6 series of mid-range smartphones are expected to launch later this month – with Motorola saying it would launch its first 2018 smartphones in April – and leaks/ rumours are all over the Internet with specifications, pricing details, and release dates out in the open. American retailer Fry’s Electronics is reported to have recently listed two variants from the range – Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play – followed by taking the pages down soon after that. In a separate leak, renders of the Moto Z3 Play have also been leaked that give us a clearer look at the upcoming smartphone. To recall, the Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, and event the Moto G6 Plus had all recently been spotted on an Hungarian site, complete with images and specifications, and Fry’s listings corroborate those specifications.
Reputed tipster Roland Quandt recently took to Twitter to reveal that Fry’s Electronics had “accidentally” outed specifications and pricing details for the upcoming Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play. While both listing pages have since been taken down, he did manage to take screenshots. According to the listing, the Moto G6 Play will sport a 5.7-inch HD+ (720×1440 pixels) MaxVision display, a 4000mAh battery, a 13-megapixel rear “rapid-focus” camera, a 5-megapixel selfie camera (with LED flash), a fingerprint sensor, and some exclusive Moto gestures. The listing mentions a price tag of $199.99 (roughly Rs. 13,000) and a shipping date of May 10.
On the other hand, the Moto G6 is suggested to sport a 5.7-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) MaxVision 18:9 display, a 3D glass back, a smaller 3000mAh battery, an 8-megapixel front camera with LED flash, an unnamed Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, a fingerprint reader, and support for 4G LTE. The listing mentions a price tag of $249.99 (roughly Rs. 16,300) and a shipping date of May 17. Both the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play prices match those leaked earlier.
Separately, a few renders of the Moto Z3 Play have surfaced, courtesy OnLeaks and Killer Features. The report suggests the smartphone will bear a 6-inch display, a circular dual rear camera module with dual-tone LED flash, and no 3.5mm headphone jack. Talking about specifications; the Moto Z3 Play might come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, up to 6GB RAM, up to 64GB inbuilt storage, a 3000mAh battery. In terms of camera specifications, the phone is reported to get a 12-megapixel + 8-megapixel rear camera setup, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. The report suggests that the fingerprint sensor might be moved to the right edge of the smartphone, beside the lock button.
