Moto G6 Plus Running On The Snapdragon 660 Chipset Listed On GeekBench
The Motorola G6 series of smartphones are expected to launch in São Paulo, Brazil on the 19th of April. There has been a lot of news and rumours regarding the design, display, and the chipset used on these devices. However, according to a listing found on the latest Geekbench, the Moto G6 Plus is running on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, which contradicts with previous leaks that stated the G6 Plus will be running on the Snapdragon 630 chipset.
This looks like a typo, as the Moto G6 Plus was reported to be running on the Snapdragon 630 Octa-core chipset. The single core and multi-core points scored by the smartphone are nowhere near the scored of the Snapdragon 660 chipset. The Nokia 7 Plus, which runs on the Snapdragon 660 chipset scores 1640 points on a single core and 5827 points on multi-core performance. Whereas the Moto G6 Plus has scored 866 points on a single core and 4123 points on a multicore performance. To bring in more context, the Moto X4 running on the Snapdragon 630 chipset has scored 875 points on a single core and 4177 points on multicore performance. This almost confirms that the Moto G6 Plus will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor.
According to an earlier report, The Moto G6 Plus will have a 5.93-inch 2160 x 1080p IPS LCD display with 2.5D curved tempered glass protection. Under the hood, the smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Octa-core chipset with 4GB and 6GB RAM options.
The phone will have a 12MP RGB sensor and a 5MP telephoto lens on the back. The setup is expected to be different from what we have seen so far from Moto devices. The front-facing camera is a 16MP sensor with a front-facing LED flash.
