  • Moto g6 leak

Glance from one to the other and you'd be excused from thinking they were the same handset.

Finally, we've got the Moto E5 Play, and as you should be able to work out from the attached specs, this is the most conservative of Moto's new affordable lineup, cutting corners here and there to keep pricing super-low.

The Moto E5 sports a 5.7-inch (720x1440p) HD+ 18:9 display, comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC under-the-hood coupled with Adreno 308 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage.

The Moto G6 also has a dual camera setup on the back with a 12 MP main camera which has an F/1.8 aperture and a 5 MP secondary camera. But they're arriving at an opportune time for Motorola. Thats actually a better chipset than the Moto G6 Play! The G6 Play does start at £169, however, so there is still an option at that price point. There are also face filters built into the phone, so you can share directly from the camera without using an outside app.

Cheaper and trimmed version of the Moto G6.

The G6 Play is the most affordable of the lot, sporting a Snapdragon 427 chipset coupled to 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of storage.

One of the key things is hidden underneath because you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 rather than a 450. The Huawei P20 has a monochrome sensor to support the main one, while the LG G6 has opted for a wide-angle second camera to fit more in. The G6, naturally, has the leg up here, at 1080p to the Play's 780p. The regular Moto G6 seems to be the superior model between the two and it features a Gorilla Glass back.

Within the aforementioned camera bulge on the rear of the Moto E5 you'll find a 13MP camera and a single LED flash.

In the United Kingdom the E5 release date is set for June and the handset will be available from a number of retailers including Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone, Amazon and Argos. There is an even bigger "G6 Plus" with a 5.9-inch screen, but it's not available in the United States.

It's the most expensive G6 but undercuts rivals like the impressive Honor 9 even at it's dramatically reduced price of £299. The USP of the Moto E5 Plus is the 5000mAh battery, and the phone thankfully also ships with TurboCharge technology.

Fortnite Battle Royale Meteors Falling: Will Tilted Towers Survive?
The game has out-grossed the likes of Pandora, YouTube, and Hulu, and is now earning more than 1.5x as much as Candy Crush Saga . We expect more information to be announced on May 17 with the game's official reveal, along with a spot within E3 2018 in June.

"The Moto G6 Play comes with a 5.7" HD+ IPS LCD display with a 720x1440p resolution.

The big deal on the G6 is the camera.

What excites us most, however, is the battery. We expect it'll be the same again in 2018 as our first impressions of this new phone are particularly good.

Below you'll see the E5 Plus in Black and Mineral Blue. The E5 plus United States version comes with a LED flash on the front, while other variants won't have a front LED flash. That battery makes the E5 Plus feel a little bit chunky, although it's still only 0.37-inch thick.

The E5 Plus is the one to get, provided you can handle the size and weight.
Motorola plans to roll out to countries in Asia Pacific, Europe, and Latin America in the coming months.

Specifically, Motorola announced six different handsets: Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, Moto G6 Plus, Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, Moto E5 Play. Micro-USB sits at the bottom of the G5, but this has been upgraded to USB-C on the G6. The phone comes with Android 8.0 Oreo, out of the box.

Moving on, we have the Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play.

This year the legacy continues with the newest generations of the moto g and moto e families.

Motorola emphasized comfort in the Moto G6 design, and it delivers. Check back then for full reviews.
