If that’s the case of Moto G6, what can we expect out of the Moto G6 Plus then?

  • 5.93-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 2160 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~407 ppi density
  • Fullview display
  • Splash resistant
  • Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Qualcomm SDM630 Snapdragon 630 chipset, Octa-core 2.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 508 graphics and 3GB/4GB/6GB RAM
  • Dual 12MP+5MP primary camera with phase detection autofocus and dual-LED dual-tone flash
  • 16MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash
  • 32GB/64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to maximum 256GB
  • Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
  • Android Oreo 8.0
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • Q2 2018 expected release date
  • ~ USD 330 estimated price tag

As we expected, the Plus usually means that it gets a larger screen size as well as better specs. That is true with the Moto G6 Plus, starting with the 5.93-inch Full HD IPS screen.

The usual stuff is there, such as the Fullview display, splash resistant, Gorilla Glass 3 protection and fingerprint sensor.

Moto G6 Plus will be in the mid-range of things with the Snapdragon 630 chipset paired with a blazingly fast octa-core processor, good graphics and either 3GB, 4GB or 6GB of RAM.

Regarding the camera, the Moto G6 Plus sports the exact dual 12MP+5MP primary camera with the 16MP selfie camera as its smaller sibling. This means you get to shoot amazing photos and play around with the bokeh effect.

Storage-wise, there are two options available with the 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. Either way, you can instantly add 256GB via the microSD expansion slot.

On its power, the 3200 mAh battery is slightly larger and should hold enough charge to power up the Moto G6 Plus for a full day of charge.

Finally, the latest Android Oreo 8.0 operating system will accompany its release to provide for the best software experience.

Conclusion:

Motorola Moto G6 Plus provides a larger 5.93-inch Full HD IPS experience with better performance and a slightly bigger battery. But all that will cost you an estimated USD 90 more, so you be the judge whether that warrants for the upgrade.

Motorola Moto G6 Plus is expected to be launched during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week from February 26 – 1 March 2018.
