The Moto G6 Plus is the high-end variant in the G6 line-up featuring all the bells and whistles in a posh looking glass pack which defines a new level of premium in its class. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chip(2.2GHz), paired with 4GB/6GB of RAM and has 64GB and a new 128GB will also make its way this time. The display is, at last, an 18:9, 5.9-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD Max-Vision display.

The design takes a lot of inspiration from the flagship Moto X series, and now the Moto G6 has a glass finish covered in gorilla glass on the front and back. Nonetheless, this makes the Moto G6 series much more premium due to its high-end build quality, punching above its segment.

On the camera front, we have a Dual-Camera set-up sporting a 12 MP sensor at a pixel size of 1.4um and a 5 MP(f/2.2) depth sensor; the primary sensors come at an impressive aperture of f/1.7, which will surely benefit the Moto G6 Plus in low light situations. An 8 MP front camera with selfie flash is also present. Keeping the device alive is a 3200mAh battery, which is a minor bump from last years, 3000mAh power pack.

Now coming towards some New Features that the Moto G6 Plus and the standard G6 has are as follows:

  • New Face Unlocking feature for security
  • AI-based Moto-Voice feature which will blow your mind
  • AI capabilities within the Camera for Scene and Landmark detection
  • Beta Experience
  • Dolby Atmos Audio support via speakers
  • USB Type-C

The new Moto-Voice feature from the Moto Z and the Moto X series, at last, shows up on the budget Moto G series. The Moto Voice found on the G6+ and G6 comes armed with AI knowledge engine which allows it to do complex tasks such as sending a message to a particular person on a specific social media app, finding restaurants, cafes, etc. The Moto-Voice will listen to your even when the screen is turned off(on standby) for 24/7 without draining your battery.

Beta Experience feature is similar to Sony’s AOSP project, which allows users to test and give feedback or even come up with a new idea for the development of software features.

The lite version of the Moto G6 line up is the Moto G6 Play, and this one has a rear mounted fingerprint reader, embedded within the Motorola batwing logo. At the heart of the G6 Play beats a Snapdragon 427 for the US markets, while for the rest of the world the G6 Play will have an SD 430 processor. In the memory department, the Play has 3GB and 2GB RAM models, with 32GB as its only storage option.

Moreover, the Moto G6 Play features a single 13 MP(f/2.0 aperture) camera sensor along with a LED flash. But still has a larger 5.7-inch IPS panel carrying a (720p+) HD+ resolution.
