The upcoming Moto G6-series from Lenovo-owned Motorola has been in headlines for quite a while now and as its rumored launch date comes near, the number of leaks related to the Moto G6, G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play have picked up the pace, the most recent one being leaked renders of the whole Moto G6-series.

The latest leaked renders reveal what all three models would look like, along with the various colour options these handsets will be offered in at launch.

First up is the Moto G6, which you can see pictured below in indigo, silver, rose gold and black. While not clear or confirmed by the renders, the screen size should come in at around 5.7-inches - what is clear is that the bezels have been significantly reduced in size compared to its G5 predecessor. The phone is expect to bear a dual rear camera setup with 12-megapixel primary lens and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor for depth effects. Renders further suggest it'll have dual-LED flash along with a redesigned curved back, which should offer better grip. The images also allude to a metal build, something that has been previously rumoured. However, before the official announcement, the phone has been listed on Amazon in the USA and Canada, revealing the key specifications and price of the Moto G6 32GB model.

Yesterday Facebook shares dipped, but are still up three percent overall since Zuckerberg began his testimony on Capitol Hill. That goes for fake news, foreign interference in elections and hate speech, as well as developers and data privacy, he said .


Going by the leaked image, it is quite sure now that the new Moto G6 Play will carry a glass build similar to that of Moto X4 which was launched previous year. However, the fingerprint sensor has been positioned on the back of the handset.

For the unknown, Motorola Brazil has started sending out media invites for a launch event which is scheduled on April 19 at Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the company is expected to launch its much-anticipated Moto G6-series at the said event.

Motorola Moto G6 Plus is said to sport a 5.93-inch Full HD+ (2160x1080p) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. All the three Moto G6 smartphones appear to feature edge-to-edge elongated displays with an aspect ratio of 18:9. Previous reports have tipped that the smartphone will incorporate a 1.4GHz octa-core processor, which could be either the Snapdragon 430 SoC or Snapdragon 427 SoC.
