Moto G6 Plus Live Images Reveal 18:9 Aspect Ratio And Front Facing Fingerprint Sensor
On April 19th, Lenovo-owned Motorola will unveil the next iteration of its highly successful budget lineup, the Moto G6 series. This time around, there are rumours that Motorola will launch three smartphones, the Moto G6, G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus. It appears that the whole G series of smartphones will see an overhaul in design and build quality. Now, live images of the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus have leaked, a day before their official unveiling at an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The leaked images also confirm that from the front, there will be no difference between the Moto G6 and G6 Plus. Despite the 18:9 aspect ratio, Motorola has kept the fingerprint sensor on the front of the devices. This means that the screen-to-body ratio of the two smartphones will take a hit but, the trade-off seems fair as a front-facing fingerprint sensor is more convenient than a rear facing one. The front-facing camera will also be accompanied by an LED flash on both the smartphones.
Benchmark scores of the Moto G6 Plus were already leaked, which reveal that the G6 Plus will run on the Snapdragon 630 chipset. Although according to the Geekbench listing the G6 Plus will run on the Snapdragon 660 chipset, the actual low benchmark scores point towards a 630 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. The Moto G6 Plus scores are more comparable to the Moto X4 which runs on the Snapdragon 630.
The Moto G6 and G6 Plus along with the G6 Play will soon launch in India as well. If priced competitively, the Moto G6 series would compete with the likes of the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. The launch of the Moto G6 series of smartphones is just a day away and all the details about the three smartphones will be revealed soon.
