The Moto G6 has been launched in China under the moniker Moto 1S. The G6 was introduced last month along with the G6 Play and the G6 Plus. Whether the other two variants will hit the Chinese shore is not yet known. The Moto G6 is the successor to the G5 from last year. The G series is known for their great price to performance ratio and the Moto 1S seems like it will follow in the steps of its predecessors.
Moto 1S Design and Specifications
The Moto 1S is just a renamed G6 so the design and specs stay the same. The 1S sports a 5.7-inch FHD+ IPS display with a 2160 x 1080p resolution translating to 427 pixels per inch and an 18:9 aspect ratio. As compared to its predecessor, the screen on the 1S takes up a lot of space up front. The fingerprint scanner sitting on the bottom has been shrunk in width. The 8MP camera sensor sits right above the display along with the dedicated LED flash and earpiece which doubles up as a speaker. The power and volume keys sit on the right side of the frame.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 clocked at 1.8GHz takes care of the processing. There’s 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable(up to 128GB) onboard storage available to support the processor. On the back rests a dual camera setup comprising a 12MP f/1.8 primary sensor and a 5MP secondary sensor. The phone comes with P2i water and dust resistance certification. The Moto 1S is powered by a 3,000mAh battery with support for Turbo Charging. The software is handled by Android Oreo with ZUI 3.5 on top. Connectivity options include the usual, Bluetooth 4.2, dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, USB Type-C and a 3.5mm jack.
Moto 1S Pricing and Availability
The Moto 1S will be available in two colour variants, Blue and Gold. It will be priced at ¥1499 (~$235), available for purchase in China through Lenovo’s online store.
