Leaked: Moto G6 Play Renders Reveal Moto X4-Like Build
Lenovo-owned Motorola will soon launch a new Moto X4 variant in India. The Moto X4 had a different build when compared to other Moto phones of 2017. The glass sandwich build was appreciated by many, and it looks like Motorola will implement that design on other devices as well. The Moto G6 Play is expected to be launched in a couple of months similar to when G5 and G5 Plus were launched in 2017.
New renders of the Moto G6 Play have surfaced online and the trickle-down effect of the Moto X4 seems to be in full swing. The renders reveal that the Moto G6 Play will have glass on the front and back with an aluminium frame. The ring-shaped LED flash will also return, last seen on the Moto X. Another interesting bit here is the fingerprint sensor.
Usually, the fingerprint sensor on the ‘G’ series is placed on the front in the home button. But, the Moto G6 Play is touted to have thin bezels. This means the fingerprint sensor will be placed on the back. However, according to the renders, Motorola will house the fingerprint sensor inside the ‘M’ logo which is an interesting move.
It also looks like the ‘Moto’ branding on the front of the device will be replaced with ‘Motorola’.
The Moto G6 Play will have a 5.7 inch display with a 1440 x 720 px resolution.
The G6 Play will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, have 2GB or 3GB of RAM along with 16GB and 32GB storage options. As visible in the renders, the fingerprint sensor could be housed inside the ‘M’ logo on the back of the phone.
The Moto G6 Play will retain the single camera setup on the back and front. The LED flash, similar to the Moto X, will be ring-shaped around the camera lens.
So far, there has been no hint by the company about the launch of a smartphone. These are, after all, just renders and renders are supposed to be taken with a grain of scepticism.
