Moto G6 and Moto E5 series officially launched - Specs, Features, Price

Moto G6

All four of Moto's new phones sport some form of quick charging, though Motorola's fastest 15W TurboPower system has been reserved for the E5 Plus and G6. Overall it makes a divine upgrade for the Moto Z Play users. The G6 will retail for around $249. But they're arriving at an opportune time for Motorola.

And just in case you're wondering, the Moto G6 does come with a headphone jack. Motorola does add some handy software experiences though. They will be available alongside the Moto G6 line starting this spring. The Max Vision screen also provides "expansive views", but naturally, with lower HD+ resolution. That battery makes the E5 Plus feel a little bit chunky, although it's still only 0.37-inch thick. At that price, no one should expect the ultra-narrow bezels and curved displays we're seeing in the high-end flagship devices. Instead, we played around with the things at an event in New York City, where it's now 40 degrees in mid-April. Besides featuring a fingerprint sensor at the front, the Moto G6 also has 32GB inbuilt storage.

Moto Voice introduces always-on voice commands and Moto Key manages passwords for apps, websites and Windows via the fingerprint scanner.

While this is enough to run the stock Android 8.0 Oreo interface, it's not going to set any benchmark or speed records.

Cinema Ban Lifts as 'Black Panther' Is Screened for Saudi Audience
Movies screened in Saudi theaters will be subject to approval by government censors, as is the case in other Arab countries. Many Saudis have rejoiced at the end of the cinema ban, sharing praise and pictures of Prince Mohammed on social media.

What's the downside? That screen is not very sharp, and also not very bright. We're nearly certain the Moto E5 won't be coming to the U.S. as it has both the Plus and the Moto E5 Play, but we've asked Motorola for confirmation and will update this piece when we know. But it's a nice lower-end phone for folks who will want to spend under $100 at their carrier and don't need a big phablet. This version will be available in dark blue, black and silver. The Moto E5 Play offers much of the same hardware as the base E5 (Snapdragon 425/427, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage), but comes with a pocket-friendly 5.2” screen.

Finally it's worth noting that, while the Moto G6 isn't officially water resistant, it has been treated with a P2i nano-coating. The phone runs Android 8.0 Oreo. Both of the phones have Gorilla Glass backs, but there's no wireless charging. I wasn't able to test this during my time with the phone, so wait for the full review to find out how well the Moto G6 fares when it comes to photography. The three phones come with 15 W Turbo Charger, to top up the batteries quickly. It is powered by 1.8GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 450 14nm processor with with Adreno 506 GPU. The smaller the transistors, the more efficient processors tend to be, and that means longer battery life.

The phone has dual camera setup with 12 megapixels and 5 megapixels sensors along with LED flash. You can create bokeh effects that you can alter before or after snapping the picture, and you can do a "selective black-and-white" that only maintains color in one part of the image. Its aperture is also different due to utilising a brighter f/1.7 aperture and dual-pixel autofocus.

The phone has 13 megapixels rear camera with LED flash and 8 megapixels front camera with LED flash. Luckily, Moto G6 has a 5.7-inch, 2160×1080 (FHD+) LCD display with the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio. You get a big HD display, dual cameras, decent performance and all-day battery life.
