Motorola launched its long-awaited latest Moto G-series smartphones in India. Although the company released Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play smartphones, it has chosen to stop the most capable device in the G6 series; the Moto G6 Plus. Fortunately, Indian buyers of smartphones did not have to wait long for the G6 Plus to land.
After having teased the upcoming launch of the Moto G6 Plus for a while, Motorola confirmed his arrival in the country. According to a tweet from Motorola's official Indian Twitter account, the Moto G6 Plus will arrive today, September 10th. Interestingly enough, Motorola even showed some of the key features or highlights of the Moto G6 Plus smartphone as well as the launch date. According to the short video in the tweet, the G6 Plus has a 18: 9 Max Vision view, 6 GB RAM, Smart Dual Camera with Portrait mode and Face Unlock, Google Lens integration, TurboPower fast charging and several other functions.

Moto G6 Plus: live streaming
Incidentally, the Moto G6 Plus has its unveiling in April 2018. The Moto G6 Plus is the slightly better equipped cousin of the Moto G6 Play, which in turn is slightly better than the Moto G6. Although the specifications and functions of the Moto G6 Plus are known, the company could offer more details regarding the availability of the smartphone and the prices at the launch.
As far as live streaming is concerned, we need to tell you that Motorola, instead of organizing a launch event, has worked with selected tech bloggers like GeekyRanjit who will do the live unboxing / unveiling of the Moto G6 Plus on their official YouTube channels. We can expect these bloggers to also publish the price and availability data of the product. For more information, please consult Motorola's official tweet here.
Moto G6 Plus: specifications, functions
The Moto G6 Plus has a 5.9-inch IPS LCD Max Vision screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 Full HD + and an aspect ratio of 18: 9. Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protects the display. Interestingly, Motorola has carefully avoided to stay in the notion and maintain a standard rectangular display. However, the screen is certainly stretched and the edges are relatively thin. The chin is a different story, however, because the Moto G6 series smartphones have a start button at the bottom.
Qualcomm 14nm octa-core processor, Snapdragon 630 clocked at 2.2 GHz, combined with an Adreno 508 GPU for the power supply of the smartphone. The G6 Plus variant introduced in India has 6 GB RAM, in combination with 64 GB of internal storage. The Moto G6 Plus has a special micro SD card slot to expand the storage capacity by up to 256 GB. Internationally, a 6GB / 128GB version of the Moto G6 Plus is also sold, but the company may not bring it here.
For image processing, the Moto G6 Plus comes with a 12 MP + 5 MP dual-camera setup on the back. The primary sensor is paired with an aperture of f / 1.7 and the sensor for secondary depth and sensor is coupled to an f / 2.2 opening. The Moto G6-series smartphone guarantees superior performance in low light and can also record videos with a resolution up to 4K with a frame rate of 30FPS. There is an 8 MP front camera for selfies and video calling. Interestingly, Motorola has also built a front-facing LED flash.
A 3200mAh capacity battery with fast charge support feeds the smartphone. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac dual band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, NFC, FM radio, USB Type-C port and 4G Volte. The smartphone measures 160 x 75.5 x 8 mm and weighs 167 grams.
Moto G6 Plus: other functions
Given the specifications, the Moto G6 series smartphones seem to be good and sturdy devices. However, the G6 Plus also includes Dolby Audio support. Interestingly, Motorola still relies on a fingerprint scanner on the front that is probably embedded in the Home button.
Moto G5 Plus finally gets a taste of Android 8.1 Oreo with the latest OS update in India
The Moto G6 Plus is currently running on the Android 8.0 Oreo OS, but it is confirmed that it will receive the Android 9.0 Pie update in the future. Perhaps the Home button with the fingerprint scanner supports gesture-based navigation. The smartphone also shows off with splash resistance.
Moto G6 Plus: expected price in India
Motorola launched the Moto G6 in India at Rs.13,999 for the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant. The 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant of the smartphone costs Rs.15.999. Because the Moto G6 Plus offers quite a few upgrades compared to the standard Moto G6, we can expect the Moto G6 Plus to be priced around Rs. 17,000 in India. At this price, the smartphone will compete with Xiaomi Mi A2 and even the 6GB RAM version of the Redmi Note 5 Pro.
