Motorola is reportedly set to launch its next-generation of smartphones in the G series – Moto G6 Play, Moto G6, and Moto G6 Plus – this year. According to latest reports, the smartphones have been codenamed Ashley, Blaine, and Teller respectively. Also, while there have been reports earlier, the Moto G6 Play leaked on a benchmarking site yet again.
The Moto G6 Play popped up on Geekbench, and is seen to sport a Snapdragon 430 SoC, which was also reported before. This SoC is relatively old as it was launched in 2015. The handset is also rumoured to come with 3GB RAM, and run Android 8.0 Oreo. The latest leak adds to the previous leaks, which say that the Moto G6 Play will sport a 5.7-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display and pack a 4000mAh battery. As per the listing, the Motorola Moto G6 Play has a score of 1801 points in multi-core performance and 472 in the single-core.
Meanwhile, popular tipster Evan Blass revealed the codenames of the new Motorola smartphones in a tweet, with the Moto G6 Play codenamed Ashley, the Moto G6 codenamed Blaine, and Moto G6 Plus codenamed Teller. Last year, Blass had revealed that the Moto G6 Play will launch alongside the Moto G6 and G6 Plus. Lenovo had given the ‘Play’ variant a miss for the fifth-generation Moto G-range which included Moto G5, Moto G5S, Moto G5 Plus, and Moto G5S Plus.
To recall, the Moto G4 Play was the last variant released as a toned down version of the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.
The new Motorola devices are likely to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) next week. The Moto G6 Play is expected to be a budget version of the premium Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus, which have been leaked earlier.
