Motorola is finally its first smartphones of 2018 in India- the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play. Both smartphones were launched back in April in Brazil, but it took more than one month for the Lenovo-owned company to bring the devices to the Indian market. The Moto G6 comes with a Snapdragon 450 SoC and the G6 Play uses the Snapdragon 430 chipset. Sadly, Motorola will not be launching the bigger Moto G6 Plus smartphone in India today. The launch event of the smartphone is scheduled for later today in Delhi and Motorola will be live streaming the event. Also, the company has partnered with Twitter to stream the event live on the microblogging platform. The launch event will kickstart at 11:30 AM today and users can head over to this link to watch the live stream.
