Moto G6 Play renders and 360 video surfaces online


It’s time for another upcoming Motorola handset to make an earlier apparition. For those following closely the news regarding the future Moto devices, the Moto E5 design was revealed earlier today in a set of renders. Additionally, a Motorola device, which we believe to be the same Moto E5 cleared FCC. Finishing the day, a couple of renders from the Moto G6 Play surfaced online.

Alongside the renders, there is also a 360º video that shows us what to expect from the handset design. The Moto G6 Play that appears on this leak is a Silver Color variant from the device, but we expect the company to reveal other colors choices once the device gets released.

The Moto G6 Play will be the minor star from the Motorola’s Mid range segment, with a possible launch occurring at MWC 2018, alongside the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus. The G6 Play marks the comeback of the “Play” variant, after a one-year hiatus.

Specs wise, the G6 Play is expected to arrive with a 5.7-inch 1280×720 IPS LCD display, sadly the minor brother of G6 line will not jump in the 18:9 bandwagon. The processing power will be ensured by the Snapdragon 430 paired with either 2GB RAM or 3GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB of storage.

The handset will sport a 12MP camera sensor on the back and a 5MP front-facing snapper. The front-facing camera also counts with a front LED flash for ensuring the best of selfies even in dark environments. The Moto G6 Play will sport a 4,000mAh battery to keeps the light on and will arrive running the Android 8.0 Oreo just out the box, however, there is no mention if the handset will support Treble.

Since the Moto G6 Play doesn’t sport a frontal fingerprint sensor like its brothers, we have two theories: First one – Motorola has opted to not include the sensor on this cheaper G6. The second – the manufacturer placed the sensor on the Motorola’s rear logo. While the second would be an obvious choice, despite users demand Motorola has never placed the Fingerprint sensor below the M’s cut.

As mentioned before, The Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, Moto G6 Play, and maybe the Moto E5, are all expected to come during the MWC 2018. Since the event is just a few weeks ahead, we expect more leaks to pop out in the coming days.

    “despite users demand Motorola has never placed the Fingerprint sensor below the M’s cut.”

    What users are demanding this? Us Moto owners love the fingerprint reader on the front. We like the convenience of being able to unlock our phones with one hand while laying flat.. it’s something we do all the time, second nature and VERY useful.

      Well, guess I didn’t took in consideration users who prefer the home button sensor. BTW I recall a lot of people, who disliked the squareish design of the sensor back in the Moto G4. They begged for a rear sensor in the company’s logo, just like users who dream with a fingerprint sensor in the Apple’s logo. Of course this is a matter of preference.

    The phone itself looks great with its design. The specs are the unfortunate reality.
