The Moto G6 Play has popped up on Geekbench which revealed that it could be launched running on a Snapdragon 430 SoC. The G6 Play is reportedly codenamed Ashley, whereas the Moto G6 and G6 Plus are codenamed Blaine and Teller respectively.
The Mobile World Congress 2018 is just a few days away where Lenovo is expected to unveil their G6 lineup of smartphones. However, some specifications of the Moto G6 Play and the codenames assigned to the G6, G6 Plus and the G6 Play have leaked ahead of the launch. The G6 Play has been spotted on Geekbench and Evan Blass has also revealed the codenames in a tweet saying that the Moto G6 Play sports the codename Ashley, whereas the Moto G6 and G6 Plus are codenamed Blaine and Teller respectively.
The Geekbench listing reaffirms the rumours that the Moto G6 Play could be powered by a Snapdragon 430 chipset. It also reveals that the device might be equipped with 3GB RAM and launch running on Android 8.0 Oreo. The smartphone scored 1801 points in multi-core test and 472 in single-core performance benchmarks. A previous leak of the smartphone tipped at a 5.7-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and it could be backed by a 4000mAh battery.
A tipster recently posted some alleged renders of the G6 series mobile phones. If the renders are to be believed, all the three smartphones will feature a taller 18:9 aspect ratio and a dual camera design that closely resembles the Moto X4. The Moto G6 Plus and the G6 Play are seen sporting a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, whereas the Moto G6 will come with a rear mounted one.
A previous report tipped that the Moto G6 Play could be powered by the Snapdragon 430 SoC, whereas the Moto G6 Plus is speculated to be equipped with a Snapdragon 425 SoC. If this is the case, the new smartphones will not be much of an upgrade over their predecessors, the Moto G5 and G5s, which were also powered by the same chipset.
