The Motorola Moto G6 Plus is prepared to make its debut with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 on board alongside other variants.
This information has arrived shortly after the manufacturer announced that its official reveal is set next week in Brazil. Most of the details surrounding Lenovo-owned brand's upcoming handset had been previously leaked and the most recent listed its prices.
Furthermore, the retail listing, which was leaked online confirmed three variants for the G6 series, the Moto G6 Play, Moto G6, and Moto G6 Plus.
Benchmarking New Units
Apparently, Geekbench has listed the data pertaining to the smartphone's new chipset along with several other specs. The motherboard model number is sdm660 and the RAM size of the unit tested is 4 GB.
It likewise included a breakdown of the CPU confirming it will run on eight cores and a clock speed of 2.21GHz. Previous speculations suggested that the Moto G6 Plus will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 on board.
Experts note that the test scores are somewhat unexpected from the caliber of its chipset, however, it is likely that the numbers generated were affected by its prerelease software. The results could be different once the final retail model is taken for another spin through the benchmark tool.
Designing An Eye-Catcher
Despite Motorola's intention to market the Motorola G6 Plus and its variants as solid mid-range options for consumers, its overall design has made it look like a premium flagship smartphone. The dual-camera setup surrounded by a round-shaped notched metallic bezel oozes with finesse.
These days, most top-shelf models from various manufacturers come with the dual-camera option. Additionally, the company's decision to go with a glass-covered rear panel adds another point for style. The only thing that's missing to complete the classy ensemble would have been the smaller bezels up front, but that would be wishful thinking to consider given its price point.
Even though the Geekbench results say otherwise, the G6 lineup is positioned to be a solid midrange tier device.
Hardware That Matters
An incredible design, however, would mean nothing if its internal hardware barely offers what users want in a mid-tier smartphone. That is why Motorola has equipped the Moto G6 Plus and other models in the lineup with decent components.
Although some speculations had suggested that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 would have catered to its requirements, the benchmark listing revealed a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 instead.
Its twin cameras are a combination of the 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensor alongside a dual-LED flash. Selfies are delegated to the 16-megapixel front-facing unit.
Also, all three Moto G6 models from the catalog will run on Android 8.0 Oreo upon launch.
