Moto G6 and G6 Play Devices Confirmed to Launch Next Month by a Retailer

Motorola has already confirmed that it will launch new smartphones starting from April. However, as per a retailer, we might have to wait until May to see the Moto G6 devices launching. Earlier leaks hinted that the phones would go official on April 3 because of the same date on home screen widget of every Motorola device. The phones may be unveiled tomorrow itself, but the sale might not happen until May 2018. US Retailer Fry has now put up the listings of both Moto G6 and G6 Play along with the shipping date as May 2018. The listings are now pulled down, but not before the details are grabbed.

Under the hood, the phone has an octa-core chipset, could be the Snapdragon 450 SoC. There will be a microSD card slot for storage expansion. The Moto G6 will pack dual cameras to the back and a wide-angle selfie camera. Also, it seems like the Moto Voice will support natural language detection this time around for taking commands even when the screen is off. A 3000mAh battery backs the entire smartphone, and the phone will offer Face Unlock feature too.

Coming to the Moto G6 Play, it will have the same 5.7-inch display, but the resolution could be limited to just HD+. It’s powered by a quad-core chipset and will be backed by a beefy 4000mAh battery.
