Motorola, as expected, has finally launched its Moto G6, Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus smartphones in Brazil.

The batteries in the two phones are entirely different. Second, the back is made of finely-textured plastic, rather than glass. All three smartphones come with curved glass back design as the Moto G6-series. Alongside, the company also revealed the E5 Play and E5 Plus.

It has a standard 16:9 aspect ratio and 720p resolution. There's little bloatware and extra design elements, and the Moto G6 ran Android 8.0 smoothly during my short time with it as a result. The battery is the smallest of the bunch, at 2800 mAh, but that's probably fine for the lower-spec hardware it's feeding. The G6 also sports more RAM (4GB v. 3GB) and storage (64GB v. 32GB) and has USB-C.

Moving our attention back to the screen and Motorola has opted for the taller 18:9 aspect ratio display size for all its new E and G series handsets. It comes with a 5.2-inch 1080x720 display and a quad-core Snapdragon 427 processor.

The camera story on these phones is basic compared to the higher-end Moto G6 series. The 8 MP selfie cam (1.12 µm, f/2.2) has a dedicated LED flash too. Although both the rear camera as well as the front camera can record 1080p videos, the rear camera can shoot at 1080p 60fps as well. The G6 is also the only one with USB Type-C, where the others use micro-USB. The phone has a front mounted fingerprint scanner for unlocking the device. On the contrary, the Moto Play the least powerful or feature-packed. Both lines of phones include the base version, a "Plus" version, and a "Play" version. The Moto G5, which packs a less powerful Snapdragon 430 processor, is still as smooth and responsive today as it was past year, so there should be no complaints about the 450. It comes with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, which is expandable up to 256 GB, via a microSD card.

While both smartphones run Android Oreo (8.0) out-of-the-box, they come with a polycarbonate back which looks sturdy as well as dependable.


As for batteries, the G6 packs a 3,000mAh cell, the G6 Plus packs a 3,200mAh cell, and the G6 Play packs a whopping 4,000mAh cell (hence the Play branding).

Connectivity features include 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4 GHz + 5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.2, Global Positioning System and USB Type-C. We don't yet have a price for the USA but at an estimate, it will be around $300.

Currently, it's unclear just how much of a difference the Moto G6 Plus' specs will actually make over the Moto G6. The phone is priced at €250 (INR 20,364 approx). The E series consists of the E5 Plus and the highly affordable E5 Play. The phone is powered by Snapdragon 425 chipset and Adreno 505 GPU. You get just 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a smallish 2,800 mAh battery. The Moto E5 Plus has a 12MP (1.25-micron pixels) sensor with an f/2.0 lens, and the E5 has a 13MP (1.12-micron pixels) sensor also with an f/2.0 lens - the only notable advantage, if any, is laser auto focus on the E5 Plus. It also features phase detection autofocus, which improves capture speed. And the availability of dual cameras gives users access to shooting modes previously unavailable from Motorola at this price point. Motorola's "Play" model is typically the most popular as it offers a very large battery.

It has fingerprint sensor located on rear panel, Front-ported loud speaker and Dolby Audio. The phone lacks NFC. Flaunts the same 5.7-inch 18:9 LCD display, but only of HD+ in resolution.

It's worth noting that the Moto G6 Plus comes with a superior rear camera, on paper. To the front, the seflie camera is an 5 MP shooter with a LED flash. The smartphone is available in 2 shades - Indigo and Gold colours which measures 159.9x75.5x7.99mm in dimension. As for the release, Motorola has only said the two models will roll out in markets in Asia Pacific (including India), Europe, and Latin America "over the coming months".
