It has been over a year since we witnessed the arrival of the last edition, but the day has finally arrived: the sixth generation of the Motorola Moto G family it has just been presented , and this time it is made up of no less than three different members, each oriented to a totally different audience. The Motorola Moto G6, G6 Play and G6 Plus are already among us , and they arrive to start a new era in the segment of the mid-range in the catalog of the Californian firm.
The three devices, although different, they maintain the same essence at the design level , premiering some new lines until now only seen in the Moto X4 presented last year. Even so, each terminal hides unique details, which make them three of the best options in their category. With all of you, all the details of the new Motorola Moto G6, Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus.
As I said, the three terminals maintain the same aesthetic philosophy, which is slightly different from what Motorola had accustomed us until now. The three members of the Moto G6 series have a glass and aluminum body , topped for resist small splashes . The back, slightly curved to improve ergonomics, hides the fingerprint reader in the same position as the Motorola logo in the case of the model Play , although in the two higher editions we will not find this format, because the fingerprint reader is located in the front, which entails some other advantage that we will review in the section of the software.
Motorola is committed to glass and aluminum as manufacturing materials for its new flagship in the mid-range segment.
Another detail that remains in the three devices is the format of the screen. Motorola has christened its 18: 9 panels as Max Vision , and has integrated them into the three models that today present us from the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo. In the case of the Moto G6 Play and Moto G6, we came across 5.7 inch LCD screens Max Vision , with HD + and Full HD + resolution respectively. Both are protected by a Gorilla Glass 3. For its part, the Motorola Moto G6 Plus extends the diagonal to 5.93 inches and bets on AMOLED technology, although it maintains the Full HD + resolution and the 18: 9 format.
The three members of this new series of terminals integrate as brain a Qualcomm platform, totally different in each case. Starting with the most humble model, the Moto G6 Play, we find a Snapdragon 425 chip , such a giant with its 28 nanometers and four cores, whose operation is more than proven.
Meanwhile, the Moto G6 rises step and generation, and integrates the Snapdragon 450 , a much more recent processor than its small brother, which rises to eight cores and reduces its size to 14 nanometers. Next to it, 3 GB of RAM and one 3.000 mAh battery , will be responsible for giving life to the latest version of Android.
Finally, the Motorola Moto G6 Plus bet on a chip that, while not the most recent of Qualcomm, is not the most used in the segment of the mid-range. We talk about Snapdragon 630, a cousin brother of 450, with which it shares manufacturing format and number of cores , although the maximum frequency increases to 2.2 GHz. In addition, thanks to its 4 GB of RAM, it should offer a more comfortable operation than in the other models. It also increases the capacity of your battery, up to 3,200 mAh.
Motorola is one of the brands that has been betting on the use of Android in its purest edition for years, and even the purchase by Lenovo seems to have changed this course. The three Moto G6 recover the classic formula of the company: A software that is close to AOSP, with useful additions that do not dirty the user experience.
On this occasion, Android 8.0 Oreo is accompanied by features such as Moto Actions, the Moto Display that shows information on the screen even when it is off, Moto Voice for voice controls, and Moto Key. This last feature, which debuted together with the Moto X4, allows you to use the fingerprint reader to access applications or websites that require a password, and even laptops with Windows.
And speaking of the fingerprint reader, Both the Moto G6 and the G6 Plus take advantage of the front position to add support for gestures that we saw in the previous generation of the Moto G.
Before entering fully into the renewed photographic system that premieres the Moto G6 and G6 Plus, it is necessary to stop at the younger brother of this family. The Moto G6 Play is supported by a unique rear sensor to give rein to its photographic capabilities, with a resolution of 13 megapixels , and equipped with different software-based systems such as Quick Capture mode, Best Shot or a manual mode. On the front, however, the sensor reduces its resolution to 8 megapixels, and enables the facial unlocking system shared by the three models.
Now, we went to see the older brothers of the family, and we came across a dual rear system, dominated by two cameras of 12 and 5 megapixels that are loaded with options, systems and ways to squeeze them to the fullest. Thanks to the two sensors, there is the possibility of capturing images with an unfocused background, thanks to the Selective Focus system that we have already seen in other phones of the brand. However, this time the firm goes further, and the possibility of modify the background of each image with your own photograph , leaving the object or the person in the foreground intact.
Only the Moto G6 and G6 Plus include a double camera. Moto G6 Play integrates a unique rear sensor, accompanied by different systems and software-based modes.
We also need to welcome animated facial filters, based on artificial intelligence to recognize the scene and detect the user’s face. Another system that relies on this technology is a recognition function of objects or places through the camera -very similar to Google Lens-, which in addition to the identification allows to scan text documents and pass them to digital format. Initially, this option will be available in Spanish, English, French, Italian and Portuguese .
