IT

Motorola has scheduled a launch event for unveiling its 2018 smartphones in Brazil on April 19. While we exclusively leaked the design of all the phones in the series - Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play - weeks ahead of the official launch, we have spotted one of the phones in Geekbench's listing.

Based on the information that we know so far, the Moto G6 Plus will be the most powerful smartphone in the Moto G6 family.

Keen-eyed tipster Roland Quandt noticed Moto G6 32GB model listed on Canada and the U.S. edition of Amazon and once, it got reported in the media, the webpage was taken down. The Lenovo-owned company will also be launching the new Moto G6 and G6 Plus on the said date. As per the 10-second video also shared by Slashleaks, the Moto G6 Play's display and the rear panel is shown.

As you may have noticed, the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus both sport dual cameras on their backs. Following the same, the renders of all the three smartphones in the G6 lineup have come to light.

Rumored specs for the phone include an nearly 6-inch Full HD display with an 18:9 ratio, a Snapdragon 630 chipset and 6GB of RAM. The render of the Moto G6 Play, in particular, confirms that it will likely be the only model with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor while the other two will see the sensor placed below the display.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 mobile platform consists of eight Kryo 260 cores (4× Kryo 260 @ 2.2GHz, 4× Kryo 260 @ 1.84GHz), Adreno 512 GPU, and 600Mbps 4G LTE modem.

In the camera department, the reports suggest that the device will come with dual 12MP + 5MP primary camera setup and a 16MP front-facing camera. The specs sound very promising and it is confirmed that this will be a mid-range smartphone from Motorola powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. Moto G6 is said to be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 450 chipset. We will know more in the days leading up to the launch event on April 19.
