Lenovo-owned Motorola has scheduled an event on April 19 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where the company is expected to launch three new smartphones in the Moto G6 series. These smartphones, namely Moto G6, Moto G6 Play  and Moto G6 Plus, have already been surfaced in a number of leaks. Now, the Moto G6 Play has surfaced been in a leaked video, showing off its design from the front and the back.

Shared by Manasco Neto, the leaked YouTube video shows off the smartphone for 9-seconds. You can see the full screen 18:9 display on the front, with a selfie camera and LED flash above the display. However, despite a full screen display, the top and bottom bezels are thicker than most full screen smartphones out there. The back of the smartphone shows off a circular module that houses the rear camera and LED flash, with the circular cut out for Moto logo, which is rumored to come integrated with a fingerprint sensor underneath.

In the leaked video, the guy does refer it to as Moto G6, but it is actually the Moto G6 Play. You can make that out from the single rear camera on the Play variant, whereas the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus are expected to come with dual rear cameras.

Moto G6 Play specifications and features

Based on what has been leaked so far, the Moto G6 Play will likely be the entry-level model with a 5.7-inch HD+ display and 18:9 aspect ratio. The pricing is expected to be around $200, which is roughly about Rs 13,000. The Moto G6 Play is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 427 SoC, feature a single-camera at the back, and armed with a 4,000mAh battery. We can expect the smartphone to run on Android 8.1 Oreo OS out-of-the-box.

Along with the Moto G6 Play, the second model, the Moto G6 is also expected to be unveiled. The smartphone will likely flaunt a 5.7-inch full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio, with a Snapdragon 450 SoC under the hood. With 32GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot for further expansion is also expected. The Moto G6 could be armed with a 3,000mAh battery, and feature a dual-camera setup at the back. It is likely to have a $250 price tag, which is approximately Rs 16,300.

The premium variant, Moto G6 Plus, could feature a slightly larger 5.93-inch full HD+ display and 18:9 aspect ratio. It is also likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, with multiple RAM and storage variants. However, other details are scarce at the moment.
