The Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play were finally launched in India on Monday, at an event in New Delhi. The G6 and the G6 Play, which saw their global launch in April this year, will be available online exclusively on Amazon and Flipkart, respectively. They all also be available offline at Moto Hub stores and will go on sale from Monday midnight. Here's more.
Both the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play will sport 5.7-inch HD+ Max Vision IPS displays. However, Moto G6 has better resolution at 1080x2160 pixels, compared to the G6 Play's 720x1440 pixels. Interestingly, Motorola has chosen not to go with the trend and has retained bezels for both the phones. Further, fingerprint sensors have been placed on the home button beneath the display.
The Moto G6 will be available in 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB expandable internal storage variants.
