Moto G6 Plus is set to launch in India next week. After teasing the smartphone for over a month, Motorola has finally announced the launch date of the Moto G6 Plus in the country. The Lenovo-owned company had first introduced the mid-range smartphone globally back in April this year, and it is now making its way into India on September 10. To recall, Motorola had announced the Moto G6 lineup in Brazil that included two other smartphones – Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play – both of which had already been launched in India in June. Meanwhile, Moto G6 Plus, whose launch was delayed, comes with a slightly larger display, faster processor, and more RAM than the other two models.

The mobile maker’s India Twitter handle this week posted a GIF alongside the caption that reads – “The new #motog6plus is set to arrive on 10th September and is built to give you more with every feature!” In the GIF, Motorola is touting the presence of ‘smart dual rear cameras’, ‘low light photography’, 6GB RAM, and more in the Moto G6 Plus. It also shows other features such as Google Lens, Spot Colour, Portrait Mode, Selective Black and White, Landmark Recognition, Face Unlock, 18:9 Max Vision Display, and TurboPower Charging.
