Below you will find detailed information about them, but we also have practical reviews for each of the three phones.

We are live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, during the launch of the three. new phones and although you can not see the launch of Moto G6 live, we will update this article with the latest information as soon as we have it, so that you will be the first to know the latest details.

Next, have a video to tell you everything you need to know about the Moto G6 family.

Moto G6 price and launch date

You can buy the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus and Moto G6 Play in the coming weeks, but Motorola has not yet announced an official release date.

We know that the United States will only get the game Moto G6 and Moto G6, without g in the Moto G6 Plus, while the United Kingdom is ready to get the three phones in the first week of May.

The Moto G6 price is $ 249 (£ 219, approximately AU $ 320) without a SIM card, while the Moto G6 The game will cost $ 199 (£ 169, around AU $ 250).

In the United Kingdom, the Moto G6 Plus will cost £ 269 (around AU $ 360).

There is also an Amazon exclusive version of the Moto G6 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which will set you back £ 239 in the UK. It is unclear if it will reach the United States or Australia.

Moto G6 design [19659007] The design language of the Moto G6 series is relatively similar to that of previous phones, so if you own a Moto G5 or Moto G5S you will recognize the look of the phone a lot. .

The Moto G6 Plus is the most premium of the three with the Moto G6 in the middle and the G6 Play being an even more affordable phone that does not feel as sophisticated as the other two phones in the series.

There are 3D glasses on both the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Plus, while the G6 Play has a polymer material on the back.

Each phone has a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB-C port on the bottom edge of the phone (except for the G6 Play that sticks with microUSB).

The edges on the back of each are also curved so that it fits easily in the palm of your hand and still feels comfortable.

There is no waterproofing technology here, so do not try to take your phone to the shower with you if you buy a Moto G6 headset.

Each Moto G6 device has a fingerprint sensor, but the regular headset and the Moto G6 Plus have them under the screen while the Moto G6 Play has it on the back of the phone. [19659002] Exactly what colors will be available in each market currently are unclear, so we'll make sure to update this article when we know more about the color options for the entire Moto G6 series.

Moto G6 screen

To keep up with current trends, the Moto family G6 has an 18: 9 aspect ratio very similar to the iPhone X or the Samsung Galaxy S9. The screen quality will not be as good, but it looks similar with a longer design on each of the three phones.

The Moto G6 comes with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD resolution at 1080 x 2160. That's 424 pixels per inch, and it's a quality similar to what we saw on the Moto G5S albeit in a different size.

Then there's the Moto G6 Plus that has a 5.93-inch IPS LCD with the same resolution of 1080 x 2160 but a lower number of pixels per inch than 407. However, it's a bit larger, so it can prefer it if you are looking for a bigger phone.

Finally, the game Moto G6 is the same size as the Moto G6 with a resolution of 5.7 inches screen, but the resolution is less than 720 x 1440, which is equivalent to 282 pixels per inch. Basically, do not go for this one if you are looking for a superb image quality.

Specifications and performance of Moto G6

Here is another area where all three phones are set to differ widely as well. It is important to remember that the Moto G6 range is about getting the most specifications in a phone at an affordable price, so it does not have any first-class processing power.

The most powerful is the Moto G6 Plus that comes with -range the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset and we have seen that this chipset works well on phones like the Sony Xperia XA2.

Some markets will have access to a 6GB version of RAM with 64GB of storage, but currently we do not know where it will land.

You are more likely to be able to buy the 4GB version of RAM with 64GB of storage or 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. We do not expect you to need 6GB of RAM inside your Moto G6 Plus to obtain satisfactory power.

The following is the Moto G6 with a Snapdragon 450 chipset inside, which is the same technology within the recently announced Honor 7C. This will not be as agile as the Plus variant, but we hope it remains firm.

That comes with the option of 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, or you can download 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage for a slightly lower price.

Finally there is the Moto G6 Play, which will be the weakest of the three phones, but we still expect to see some adequate performance from its Snapdragon 430 chipset. We liked how it performed on the Nokia 6 last year, so we have great hopes of how it will work in the G6 Play.

Here you have more limitations regarding the option of RAM and storage, with the two options 32 GB of internal memory with 3 GB of RAM or 16 GB of storage with 2 GB of RAM.

All three phones have microSD support of up to 256 GB, so if you buy one that is too small for your liking you can always insert a card for a bit of additional storage.

  There are dual cameras on the back of the G6 and G6 Plus

G6 Moto Camera

Both the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus comes with cameras Dual rear, while the G6 Play is not as powerful in the rear.

First there is the Moto G6 with a main sensor of 12MP and a secondary camera of 5MP in the rear. It has an aperture of f / 1.8 and is also capable of filming HD video.

The Moto G6 Plus is remarkably similar with 12MP and 5MP cameras working together to get shots, but the aperture is slightly stronger at f / 1.7 and there is the ability to record video in 4K as well.

Finally, there's the Moto G6 Play that only has a single camera on the back with a 13MP sensor and an aperture of f / 2.0. All three phones come with the same 8MP front camera, plus there is a portrait mode in the rear camera.

There are also additional software features for each of these phones that include Snapchat-like filters to paste over your face or even the ability to point your phone at famous locations and have your phone directly tell you what you are looking at.

G6 Battery and Operating System

Currently we do not know how well the three phones will work in terms of battery life, but we have reason to believe that Moto G6 Play will be remarkably good.

The Moto G6 has a cell of 3000 mAh, while the G6 Plus is a cell of 3200 mAh. Then there is the Moto G6 Plus that has a large 4000mAh battery, which is particularly good considering that it has the least amount of power.

We think this may mean that Moto G6 Play will try to replicate the battery life we've seen on phones like the Moto E4 Plus, where it can last up to two whole days on a single charge. We'll have to wait until we get these devices for a full review to know for sure.

The three new phones are running the Android Oreo 8 software directly from the box. That's in a stock capacity, so you see exactly how Google intended it and you'll get the same look as in Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

Motorola is also one of the best Android manufacturers when it comes to updating their phones with the latest software, which means that you will get timely updates of the operating system on your Moto G6 series phone if you are ready to buy one. It seems likely that Android P finally arrives.

Moto G6 other features

Outstanding features are not found in the Moto G6 series: it is more about bringing elements such as design, the screen and other high-end features to a more affordable handset.

That means there is no Moto Mod integration, like the one I would get in the Moto Z2 range.
