Back in January, Motorola s 2018 smartphone lineup was leaked online, and the company was expected to unveil the smartphones at MWC 2018. That clearly did not happen, and the Moto X5 was also reportedly cancelled. Now, the Lenovo-owned company has confirmed that it will be launching the new Moto smartphones next month.

Ahead of the launch, press renders of the Moto G6 have surfaced online (courtesy of Killer Features), showing off the smartphone from every angle. Based on what we can see in the leaked renders, the front sports an 18:9 display, with the earpiece, sensors and front flash above the display, and a thin capsule shaped fingerprint sensor at the bottom. At the back, you have a circular dual camera module with LED flash. Also Read - Motorola-branded Smart Refrigerators with Wi-Fi tipped to launch soon in India
Just like the Moto X4, the Moto G6 renders also show off front and back glass design, with the back slightly curved. The power button and the volume rocker is on the right, whereas the bottom has USB Type-C port, and probably the 3.5mm socket is retained as well. We won t be surprised to see IPXX certification for water and dust resistance, just like the Moto X4.
The specifications of the Moto G6 have also surfaced, courtesy of Android Headlines. According to the leak, we can expect the smartphone to come with a 5.7-inch full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the Moto G6 could be powered by a Snapdragon 450 SoC paired with 3GB/4GB of RAM, and 64GB onboard storage.
In the photography department, dual cameras are expected at the back, out of which one will likely be a 12-megapixel primary sensor, and other could be a 5-megapixel sensor. The setup will allow for DSLR-like bokeh effects to your photos.
Up front, a 16-megapixel camera with LED flash is also expected. With 3,000mAh battery, connectivity options such as 4G VoLTE, dual-SIM card slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS are expected. There is no word on the operating system, but we are likely to see Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.
