Design & Display
At a glance
The entry-level Moto G6 Play borrows the 3D curve design from Moto X4 to set it apart from its predecessors - the Moto G5 series smartphones.
The G6 Play gets a 5.7-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9.
Moreover, the phone is expected to come in Indigo and Gold color variants.
Under the hood
The Moto G6 play is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, paired with 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB internal storage.
Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and others. However, it is uncertain if the Indian variant will support NFC.
The phone will pack a 4,000mAh battery and run Android 8.0 Oreo with Moto Experiences which offers additional shortcut features and simple gestures.
The rear Moto dimple now houses a fingerprint sensor
As standard upgrade across all Moto G6 series, Motorola has embedded the fingerprint sensor within its iconic Moto dimple on the rear panel. The center-placed Moto dimple, which sits below the camera module, is a convenient location for a fingerprint sensor. A welcome change indeed!
For the shutterbugs and selfie lovers
The Moto G6 Play sports single rear camera comprising a 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus and LED flash. On the front, the phone offers an 8-megapixel selfie shooter which comes with a dedicated LED flash and also supports 1080p video recording.
