As leaks and hands-on images continue to surface, Motorola will be gearing up to unveil its newest line of Moto G smartphones which is slated for a release at an event in Brazil on April 19th. The company will be launching the Moto G6, G6 Play, and the G6 Plus, the latter being the most expensive variant of the lineup, which is the same version that has popped up on Geekbench of late.
According to the listing on Geekbench, the Moto G6 Plus will get its power through a Snapdragon 660 coupled with 4GB of RAM. We have our own doubts about the listing since the SND 660 on the G6 Plus doesn’t match well with previous reports and the benchmarking site has been wrong when it comes to rating the chipset. Earlier leaks suggested a Snapdragon 630 being packed inside the Moto G6 Plus and if you look at the benchmark scores, the listing doesn’t justify the numbers that might expect from a Snapdragon 660, which could easily achieve close to 5,000 on multi-core tests.
If the Geekbench listing is anything to be believed, the G6 Plus will perform better than what we expected from it and will surely match the likes of smartphones in the higher mid-range segment in terms of performance. The unit in question scored a decent 4,123 and 866 on multi-core and single-core benchmarks, though neither of these scores can be confirmed to be official once the phone gets official.
The G6 Plus will be running on Android 8.0 Oreo and from what we might know from previous reports, the device will feature a tall 5.93-inch FHD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The phone will equip a dual 12P + 5MP camera setup on the back and will be rolled out with standard connectivity options and a 3,200mAh battery that will support fast charging. More on that within the end of this week.
