Here are the Moto G6 and E5 series' specs and Canadian availability

Moto Z Play receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update in India

Motorola, a Lenovo owned smartphone maker has officially launched the new Moto G6 series alongside new Moto E5 range of smartphones today at an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In its latest set of leaks, right before the launch date, high quality renders of the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus have been outed by a major case maker. The Moto E5 line will be good gifts for those just getting into the cell phone era, young and old. The G6 Play does start at £169, however, so there is still an option at that price point.

Cheaper and trimmed version of the Moto G6.

It's a nice touch that lets you hide the Android notification buttons so they get out of the way of your apps and content on the screen.

The Plus is only marginally bigger than G6 but shares the same design so everything is in the same place. It also has fingerprint sensor located below the display. But they're arriving at an opportune time for Motorola.

These are full-day phones without question - and they even pack TurboPower chargers.

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.

The Moto G6 isn't water resistant, but it is "water repellent". It's worth noting that the camera bump is a bit bigger on the Plus.

On first impressions, the Motorola Moto G6 Plus is a tricky phone to judge. Overall, the upgrades might convince you to pay the extra £50. Motorola has opted for the 18:9 display format, however, it hasn't decided not to follow the current trend: none of the three models offer the notch, which some of you will be pleased to see! While Motorola is also advertising it as a "Max Vision" display, the screen of the Moto G6 Play isn't an FHD+ affair but instead offers an HD+ resolution of 1,440 by 720 pixels.

It's still Full HD+ and IPS LCD so you really won't notice a big difference.

The "standard" G6 is built around a Snapdragon 450 chipset coupled with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage. It is powered by 2.2 GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 630 with Adreno 508 GPU.

The G6 Plus also comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage as standard where the G6 has 3/32GB although an Amazon exclusive model will match the Plus at £239. Expand storage up to 2TB by adding a microSD card (sold separately). The 3,000 mAh battery supports 15W turbo charging through its USB-C port, and you'll find a microSD slot and a headphone jack (which is becoming more of a rarity these days).

The Moto G6 features a front-facing fingerprint sensor and dual rear cameras. It records 1080p @ 30 fps videos. It has a single rear camera with a 13MP sensor and an 8MP front facing sensor.

While both smartphones run Android Oreo (8.0) out-of-the-box, they come with a polycarbonate back which looks sturdy as well as dependable.

There's no bloatware here as per usual.

Regardless of the smartphone, Motorola typically shines when it comes to software.

The 2018 Moto G handsets feature 18:9 aspect ratio displays with curved edges and thin bezels. The fingerprint readers on all four phones provide biometric authentication as well as gesture control. While these are not considered "high-end" smartphones, they have numerous same features of more expensive phones.
