We have covered almost all of the major devices that were seen in MWC 2018 including Samsung Galaxy S9 & S9+. However, we missed the budget-friendly series from Motorola. Specifically, the ‘G’ series because it did not show up at MWC 2018.

Moto G6 play leaks

The Moto G-Play series is known for representing perhaps the best value in mid-range phones, including a good and balanced amount of specifications for the average consumer.

During MWC, Motorola teased that something is on the way, but before the official unveiling, a Moto G6 Play phone has been leaked by Taiwanese certification agency NCC, as noted by TrendyTechz.

Motorola labels these devices as ‘Play’ to indicate that it is built to ‘Play’ whenever you want and wherever you want, implementing it with long battery life, and that appears to be the case here. The G6 Play is expected to have a 4,000mAh battery. That should provide enough endurance when paired with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 that’s allegedly inside. The overall design of the Moto G6 Play follows the design implementation shift that Motorola began with the Moto X4.

Taking a closer look at the leaked images it seems like Moto G6 Play packs a 2:1-aspect display. It’s nice to see some bezel going away, trimming the bezels required moving the fingerprint reader to the back of the phone beneath the camera.

On paper, the phone looks ready to be released considering the fact that the specifications are on par with the current entry-level phones. All in all, the phone sports a 4,000mAh battery which is powerful enough to live up to the “G-Play” hype.

Hopefully, we’ll be seeing this device unveiled by Motorola in upcoming weeks. As of now, there isn’t any news about when and where the phone will be launched, but we can surely say that the next major phone release from Motorola will be the new G6 Play.
