Battery-centric Moto E5 range announced with stock Android 8.0

Moto G6 Plus

Moto G6 Plus

The 2018 lineup is consists of the 3 series of smartphones - like, Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, and Moto E5 Play.

Specifications differences between Moto G6 Play, Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus.

Apart from G6 series phones, Motorola also unleashed the relatively affordable Moto E5, Moto E5 Play, and Moto E5 Plus. The dual sensor delivers features known to users of Moto Z2 Force, X4 and G5S Plus, such as photos with blurred backgrounds (bokeh mode).

Processor: 2.2 GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 630 14nm Mobile Platform with Adreno 508 GPU. Moto G6 puts emphasis on a new design with 3D glass on the G6 and G6 Plus variants. Among the three it is the only one to possess a Fingerprint Scanner in the rear.

RAM: 2GB RAM with 16GB internal storage, 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage, expandable memory with microSD.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset, which is paired with 4GB and 6GB RAM (depending on which one you buy) and offers 64GB onboard storage.

Storage: 32GB/64GB variants, expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. Moto G6 Plus is also capable of 4K video recording.

Motorola Moto G6 features a 5.7-inch full HD IPS display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 424ppi pixel density.

For optics, the Moto G6 Play sports a 13MP rear camera with ƒ/2.0 aperture, LED flash, and an 8MP front camera with soft LED flash for capturing selfies in low-light surroundings.

Moto "G6 Play" could come with a 5.7-inch display, a long-lasting battery, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and is expected to be launched in blue and gold colours.

The Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus will be available in India in "coming months". Of course, the software performs well and comes running the most current version of Android, Oreo 8.0.

The Moto G6 is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery. Both options are solid buys on paper, but there's more to a phone than the software it launches with and the specs it carries. The phone packs a 2800mAh battery.

The Moto G6 Play smartphone comes with 2GB and 3GB of RAM. The Fingerprint Scanner is still present in the front, however, it is now more compact. The front camera is 8MP on the Moto G6 Plus. Motorola is calling its take on the full view 18:9 aspect ratio as Max Vision display. But, while the standard G6 can boast of a gorilla glass back, making it come closest to a flagship level build; the G6 Play has to be satisfied with a polymer glass back.

It's good news that Motorola has kept the headphone jack and the G6 is also water repellent thanks to a p2i coating.

In this post, we will be pitting the Moto G6 Play, Moto E5 Plus, and the Redmi 5 against each other. Looking to grab a bigger chunk of India's fast-growing smartphone market, it is working on growing its offline presence by setting up 1,000 Moto Hub stores across the country. They both have 18:9 displays and small bezels on the front of the phones, and edges that curve along the backs. While the Moto G6 Play will start at $249 (roughly Rs 16,435) and the Moto G6 Plus will meanwhile start at 299 Euros (roughly Rs 24,300).

You can choose from these color options: Deep Indigo, Silver, Black, and Blush.
