More specs of Moto G6 family surface: chipset, battery and price

Peter, 14 February 2018

Yesterday, we caught our first glimpse of the Moto G6 family, which will feature 18:9 screens. Today, we get three more pieces of the puzzle: chipset, battery and price.

The Moto G6 Plus, the top model, will sport a Snapdragon 630 chipset powered by a 3,250mAh battery. It will allegedly cost $265/€250.

The base Moto G6 scales back a bit with a Snapdragon 450 and a 3,000mAh battery. This one is projected to cost $234/€190. Both the G6 and G6 Plus will have 1080p+ screens.

If you want a large battery, however, the Moto G6 Play will boast 4,000mAh capacity. Coupled with the slow but efficient Snapdragon 430 (and lower screen resolution, 720p+), the battery life should be stellar. This one will cost the least - $187/€152.

These chipsets will provide incremental upgrades on processing power and efficiency. Motorola’s current G5 line-up is built around Snapdragon 625 and 430 chips (the latter is a 28nm part).

Note that the battery capacities differ slightly from the January leak, though this may be accounted by typical/minimal capacity.

Input might not good, but output is different story in digital world, only Motorola can maximize output better than mi with sd835, that is why people buy intel, asus mainbord with higher price rather than cheap but bad output

Screen seems very plush. Motorola is surprisingly good at gaming, even with old chipsets.

Motorola is lagging from Redmi, as Redmi Note5 Pro is with Snapdragon 636 Chipset. This was not expected.
