Of the pair of newly released devices, the Moto G6 is the better phone of the duo while the G6 Play comes with watered down specifications and features. The Moto G6 is all shade of sleekness and durability as there is a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 covering on both the front and the rear.

Other key specifications of the Moto G6 include a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display in 18:9 aspect ratio, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, Snapdragon 450 SoC, dual 12MP + 5MP lens on the rear, fast charging 3,000mAh battery with USB-C port, and 8MP selfie camera.

The Moto G6 also comes in a smaller version with 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage. The 3GB Moto G6 will retail for $209 while the 4GB RAM version will sell for $239.

The Moto G6 Play, on the other hand, has the same screen size as the Moto G6 — 5.7-inch display with Gorilla Glass — but of lower (HD+) display quality. An Octa-core Snapdragon 430 SoC will power the standard version while the USA version will be powered by a Snapdragon 427 SoC.

The G6 Play also comes in different storage options (2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB storage combination) and is available in only Indigo and Gold colour options. The G6 Play comes with a single 13MP shooter on the rear and an 8MP lens at the front (5MP for the USA version).

Interestingly, the Moto G6 Play –being the smaller of the duo– has the bigger battery capacity; 4,000mAh with USB-C port and fast TurboPower charging. The Moto G6 Play will retail for $179.

Both the Moto G6 and G6 Play come out of the box running the Android Oreo OS and have gone on sale in India at local Moto Hub stores and Flipkart.
