Moto G Series is Finally Making the Jump to 18:9 Displays

April 2, 2018, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The unusual absence of Motorola at MWC had led many to believe that year 2018 would prove to be a dull year for the Lenovo-owned company. But that doesn’t seem the case right now, as Motorola is now reportedly gearing up for a new launch.

The company is now said to be prepping up the G series with G6 and G6 Play devices. The G series still is Moto’s iconic series that helped it gain some grounds following its re-entry with Android.

For years, this legacy has kept the company off from tweaking its design. But the apparent omission of X5 now seems to have showered some design changes to the G series.

Primarily noticeable is the new 18:9 display, which surprisingly stood away from many Moto devices until now. Both the G6 and G6 Play will be having 18:9, though the regular version will only be featuring a slightly reduced resolution compared to the Full HD+ resolution in G6 Play. There won’t be any variation in the screen dimensions, as both the versions are said to be coming out 5.7-inch Max Vision displays. Besides, Motorola is also said to have added Attentive Display feature to the G6 display that will keep the screen on when the user is looking at it.

Inside, the G6 will be featuring Snapdragon 430 SoC. Other reports also suggest the inclusion of Snapdragon 450, but we are not expecting anything more than the entry-level chipset series from Qualcomm. G6 is also expected to make the bump with a dual cam system as seen in Moto X4. Numbers are not available at the moment, though several report suggest for an 8MP front-cam in both the devices.

A 3000mAh battery is expected to find place in the device, and it will be coming out with the accustomed TurboPower charging technology. Considering the specifications, this should be enough to keep the device running for over a day.

As far as the pricing goes, the G6 is most likely to be tagged at $199, while the G6 Play Edition will cost $50 more. There is no official word on the details though, so until and unless Moto officially unveils the device, we would have to take this info with a grain of salt.
