Motorola’s Moto G6 has prematurely appeared on the American and Canadian versions of Amazon earlier this week, with the two product listings originally being spotted by German tech journalist Roland Quandt. Both have been pulled in a matter of hours, but not before being identified as reiterating some of the previously reported specs of the device. The handset has been listed as sporting an octa-core chip with a maximum operating frequency of 1.8GHz which is widely assumed to be Qualcomm’s 450, with the same source also re-confirming the existence of a 5.7-inch “Max Vision” display boasting an elongated aspect ratio of 18:9, i.e. 2:1.
A dual-camera setup and a traditional fingerprint reader will also be part of the package, as per the same source, which also boasts of a battery capable of lasting an entire day on a single charge. The Amazon listing also specifically mentions a U.S. warranty, suggesting Motorola will once again be retailing its handsets unlocked, in addition to offering them through select wireless carriers. Besides the regular Moto G6, the upcoming series is also thought to include the Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus.
Following a wide variety of reports, leaks, and rumors, the Moto G6 lineup is expected to officially launch next Thursday, April 19, which is when the Lenovo-owned company is holding its next product event in Brazil. While Motorola is the world’s only original equipment manufacturer to hold main announcements in the South American country, the popularity of its offerings among Brazilian consumers recently prompted the firm to start being more aggressive with its promotional activities in that market. Last year, the firm also announced the Moto Z2 Play at a Brazil launch event. While Motorola hasn’t officially confirmed the happening meant to take place next week will see the introduction of the Moto G6 family, it already disclosed its first 2018 products are meant to be released this month and no other smartphone series from the OEM leaked nearly as much in recent weeks.
