Moto G6 Play Android Mid-Ranger Leaks With Basic Specs

Two images depicting what’s alleged to be Motorola’s Moto G6 Play emerged online several hours back, confirming the vast majority of details revealed as part of last week’s massive leak describing the upcoming Android mid-ranger. It’s not entirely clear whether the two photographs seen above show an actual handset or a dummy unit meant to be featured in store displays, but the promotional materials attached to the smartphone are in line with previous reports about Motorola’s 2018 mobile offering. The Moto G6 Play is hence once again alleged to feature a 5.7-inch display panel with an HD+ resolution of 1,440 by 720 pixels amounting to an 18:9 (2:1) aspect ratio. The Lenovo-owned phone maker is advertising the screen of the device as a “Max Vision” display, as per the same source.

The signature batwing logo seen on the back of the device is presumed to double as a fingerprint reader, with the new leak clearly stating the device features such a sensor despite lacking a physical Home button. While in-screen scanners are now slowly making their way into commercial Android smartphones, Motorola isn’t expected to adopt that technology this year and even once it does, it’s unlikely to opt for a mid-range implementation before equipping one of its future flagships with such a functionality. The Moto G6 Play will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery that’s assumed to not be removable, with the handset also having dual-SIM capabilities, according to the new leak.

The twin camera setup seen on the back of the device consists of a 13-megapixel sensor and an 8-megapixel one, with at least one model of the Android smartphone being equipped with 3GB of RAM and an octa-core chip clocked at up to 1.4GHz. The silicon in question is hence likely part of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 series. The Moto G6 Play is expected to be officially announced later this month, together with the regular Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus. The three smartphones will debut as Motorola‘s first 2018 mobile offerings after the company unexpectedly skipped major product announcements at the latest iteration of MWC, a Barcelona-based trade show where it traditionally had a major presence until this year.
