5 things you need to know about the Lenovo Moto G6 family

Motorola has always been the go-to brand for quality smartphones at affordable prices. The smartphone is equipped with a 12MP of main camera with LED flash.

But dont think of these as the junior team, we think this first one might actually be a better phone than the Moto G6 Play (and at a lower cost to boot). It's very hard to tell which is which unless you put them side-by-side and even then there's also a small difference.

While Moto's G-Series smartphones are synonymous with affordability, the new G6 mobes are the firm's most-expensive yet, with the highest-spec Moto G6 Plus fetching £269.

Some downsides of the Moto E5 Plus include an outdated micro-USB port (but a 3.5 mm jack is thankfully still on board) and no NFC.

As far as specs go, the E5 comes with a 5.7-inch 720p display, a Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 12MP camera, USB-C, a 4,000mAh battery, and Android 8.0.

The Moto G6 has a dual-lens camera.

Motorola sure has packed a lot into the Moto G6. The Moto G6 combines a 12-megapixel (f/1.8) primary sensor with a 5-MP secondary one. Notably, the G6 Plus and standard E5 won't be landing in the US.

Inside, the G6 features a Snapdragon 450 processor, the G6 Plus has a Snapdragon 630, and the G6 Play has a Snapdragon 430. Having been unable to spend as much time using the G6 Plus over the standard G6, this hands-on is really only the most introductory of experiences. If yes, do share your initial impressions of the update with us. As with the G6, the G6 Plus has Gorilla Glass on the front and back and soft curved edges at the rear. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with a f/2.2 aperture and 1.44µm pixels, along with a display flash.

The Moto E family still represents Motorola's cheapest devices, though there's another important distinction for 2018. Motorola hasn't said about Indian availability yet, but considering Moto E series has been popular with the entry-level segment in India, it may eventually be launched here. Just aim the G6 at a famous place and it will pop up information about it. Object recognition is similar but works with anything.

Online smartphone retailers Carphone Warehouse and Amazon released pictures of the upcoming Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus.

The Moto E5 Play (right) lacks the slim bezels of the Moto E5 Plus (left).

While the Moto E5 has a big screen, its resolution is just 720p HD rather than Full HD and that means it doesn't shine when compared to the new Moto G6 range. That's for one-button navigation, and both the G6 Play and E5 Plus don't offer that, with fingerprint sensors on the rear.

In the end, though, it matters not how quick the Moto E5/E5 Plus is, how good or bad their cameras are - or that they're a little down on feature count.

What excites us most, however, is the battery.

Motorola hasn't released a specific date when the phones will be available, only saying consumers should expect to be able to buy them in late Spring.

Below you'll see the E5 Plus in Black and Mineral Blue. As always, we'll keep you updated as soon as we know more.

Many phones have rear cameras positioned very high up, nearly touching the top edge.

That's kind of what the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus end up doing in a round about way. What you see is what you get. However, Ron Amadeo at Ars Technica says the Moto G6 and its Play sibling are guaranteed to get one major OS upgrade, presumably to Android P, at some point in the future.
