Evan Blass on Monday via a tweet tipped the coming of the Play series again. He notes, “Next year will see the return of Play to Lenovo’s Moto G lineup in the form of the Moto G6 Play (alongside the G6 and G6 Plus).” apart from this bit, Blass didn’t confirm any other information about the devices as of yet, neither its specs, nor its launch timeline or pricing details.
Recently, Lenovo-owned Motorola launched its Moto G5S and G5S Plus smartphones in India. The Moto G5S is priced at Rs 13,999, while the Moto G5S Plus will be available at Rs 15,999.
We don’t know the pricing or release date of the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play, and probably won’t for some time, but there’s a good chance they’ll launch sometime in the next few months.
The Moto G6 lineup’s hardware remains just as much a mystery as its designs, but beefed-up processors are a safe bet.
Qualcomm’s recently unveiled Snapdragon 636 system-on-chip seems like a strong contender for the Moto G6 Plus. It’s several steps up from the Snapdragon 630, the CPU that powers the Moto G5 Plus, and it’s significantly more powerful. Qualcomm says the on-board Adreno 509 graphics chip is 10 percent faster than the Snapdragon 630’s GPU and supports screen technologies like Assertive Display, which optimizes the brightness for ambient lighting conditions.
