Lenovo’s Moto G5 and G5 Plus proved to be quite successful, and Motorola’s parent company Lenovo is reportedly at work on the two new smartphones, the Moto G6 and G6 Plus. Reports also indicate that this time around there might be a cheaper, lower-end model called the G6 Play as well.
It’s early, but rumors are abound about Lenovo’s new smartphone lineup, the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play so far.
Moto G6 Lineup Design and Specs
It appears that the Moto G6 series will have a new design, adopting some newer features that make it a little more reminiscent of the Moto X. According to leaks, the phones will feature an 18:9 aspect ratio. The standard Moto G6 and G6 Play will both sport 5.7-inch displays, with the standard G6 featuring an FHD+ resolution and the G6 Play coming in with an HD resolution.

Like previous Moto G phones, the new devices will have a fingerprint sensor on the bottom of the device, which will double as a navigation button. It will also feature a dual-lens camera, which will supposedly be better quality than the Moto G5S Plus.
The phones will reportedly ship in a range of colors with the Moto G6 available in rose gold, silver and black. The Moto G6 Plus will come in Dark Lake, Nimbus and Deep Indigo. The G6 Play will come in Deep Blue, GOld and Dark Charcoal.
Spec-wise, the Moto G6 will include an upgraded processor in the form of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450, while the Plus will have a Snapdragon 630. Additionally, the Moto G6 will have a 3,000mAh battery, while the Moto G6 Plus will feature a 3,200mAh battery. The Moto G6 Play comes in with a hefty 4,000mAh battery.
Apart from the processor and battery, the standard G6 will come with options of either 3GB or 4GB of RAM, with either 32GB or 64GB of storage. The Moto G6 Plus will up the ante with options for 3GB, 4GB, or 6GB of RAM, with either 32GB or 64GB of storage.
Around the back, the Moto G6 and G6 Plus will feature a 12 megapixel+5 megapixel rear-facing camera, along with a 16 megapixel front-facing camera.
