When it comes to affordability, Motorola has always forced the users to compromise on specifications and Moto E6 is no exception. When going for a budget Android device, be prepared to sacrifice build quality, high-end specs, and even looks for something functional and cheap. But as per the new renders coming out by Mobielkopen, a German website, Motorola is expected to add a slick visual update on its E6 line. It might come as E6 Play.
The standard E6 variant came out for $149 as a budget Android device this summer on the cheaper side, followed by Moto G7 Play. Unlike E5, Moto E6 was the only model, which came out until adding E6 Plus the way back in the month of September. However, E6 Plus was launched only in South American and European markets.
According to these renders, the E6 range might be finally getting its Play version soon. The renders highlighted in Android Central flaunt what the display would be like with an 18:9 aspect ratio, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack and traditional Micro USB charging port, which would make it stand out from E6 Plus.
It is also revealed by Android Central that lack of dual-lens camera in E6 Plus and placement of camera further show that it is much likely the Play variant.
Irrespective of that, the device seems like it punches far ahead of its weight in terms of design. Of course, it would have a quite nice teal and glossy backs in black. You can get it quite worse for a budget phone.
Key Specifications and Features
Moto E6 Play will have a standard dual Nano-SIM slot. It will run Android 9 Pie powered by MediaTek MT6739 quad-core chipset paired with just 2GB RAM. It will have a 5.5” HD+ Max Vision display with 720x1440p resolution, 295ppi of pixel density and 18:9 aspect ratio.
When it comes to the camera, the E6 Play comes with a 13MP single camera at the back with f/2.2 aperture. It will have a 5MP sensor for selfies with f/2.2 aperture. The device comes with 32GB of storage which can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card.
When it comes to connectivity, the device will feature-
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- 4G LTE, GPS/A-GPS
- Bluetooth 4.2
- FM Radio
- 3.5mm headphone jack
- And a micro USB port.
Some of the onboard sensors are ambient light, accelerometer, fingerprint scanner, and proximity sensor. In the end, the device weighs 140g.
Moto E6 Play will come with a 3000mAh Li-ion battery. It can provide ample power backup and it should last the whole day on day-to-day usage.
Since Moto E6 Play is a budget smartphone, don’t expect too much. It is a decent buy for those who have nothing to do with high-end games and heavy usage. The battery is powerful enough to keep the device alive all day long and the processor is just decent.
But the display is quite good for the price. The internal space and RAM are quite lower than the same in other devices in its price range.
