Motorola’s upcoming G6 Plus pops up on Geekbench

The Moto G6 Plus pops up on Geekbench, because why not at this point.

Motorola’s mid-range game is pretty decent these days with the G-range and E-range covering plenty of ground. They’ve got their fans, though competition gets more stiff each day. So, what does Motorola have to combat all their mid-range competitors? They’ve got more news about the Moto G6 Plus of course. The device itself isn’t here yet since it launches in Brazil on the 19th of this month, but at least we’ve got leaks.

So, what’s up with the Moto G6 Plus and its Geekbench listing? Well, a pleasant surprise is that the device comes with a Snapdragon 660 instead of the Snapdragon 630 we expected it to come with. The downside is that the scores are still rather unsatisfactory. Instead of the 5000+ scores we expect from SD660 devices, the G6 Plus only scores 4123. It’s possible the software simply wasn’t optimized, which we honestly hope is the case.

The rest of the specs seem to keep up with the current mid-range trends as far as we can see. We can expect a 5.93-inch, 18:9 screen with a Full HD+ resolution just like every other mid-range device. The test shows us the presence of a 4GB RAM unit, though we also believe a 6GB model will be present at launch. The device will come with 32GB/64GB of internal storage, along with a 3,200mAh battery. Topping things off, we’ve also got the 12MP + 5MP dual camera on the back.

Overall, the Moto G6 Plus seems to fit the mid-range mold just nice. Nothing revolutionary or new, but solid enough to work fine for most people. Honestly, I’d love to see more innovation in the mid-range market, but that doesn’t seem likely for now. What do you think about the Moto G6 Plus? Would you pick this up over one of the many competitors? Tell us down in the comments section below.
