After appearing in a hands-on video earlier this week, the Moto G6 Play has been spotted in another set of hands-on images. Motorola is expected to launch the smartphone alongside the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus on April 19 at an event in Brazil. As the launch date creeps closers, we come across more and more leaks, with the Moto G6 being the subject of the new one.
In line with previous leaks, the new images show the Moto G6 Play sporting a glass build identical to last year's Moto X4. However, the smartphone has a large display, probably with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Moto G6's about phone screen shows that the Moto G6 is fitted with a 5.7-inch HD+ display. At the rear, the smartphone has a single camera that is housed in a large, circular module.
If you go down a bit south, you can see the Motorola branding. Both the front and rear camera is accompanied by a LED flash module. The about phone screen also confirms the inclusion of an octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, which is likely to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC. The chipset is coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage, which may be expandable using the microSD card.
Moving to the optics department, there is a 13MP primary camera and an 8MP selfie camera. A huge 4,000mAh battery with Motorola's TurboPower fast charging support is also listed, which will probably be the main USP of Moto G6 Play.
As far as other specifications are concerned, the Moto G6 Play is expected to run Android Oreo OS right out of the box. Recent reports have suggested the smartphone will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-USB port, instead of the latest USB Type-C port.
The Moto G6 Play will be the cheapest in the Motorola's Moto G6 lineup. The smartphone is rumored to come with a price tag of $199.99, which translates to Rs. 13,000.
Last year's Moto G6 series didn't include a Play variant. However, Motorola has decided to bring it back on popular demand. If you haven't checked out the hands-on video of the Moto G6, you can check it out here.
