MOTOGATE! New Motorola phones are leaked (Moto G6, Moto Z3 Play, Moto X5)

MOTOGATE! New Motorola phones are leaked (Moto G6, Moto Z3 Play, Moto X5)

It all started with him leak Moto E5 yesterday but that would only be the start. Today we have Read almost ALL Motorola products we will see this year!. That's right, a fairly large leak, considering that many of these phones won't see sunlight until many months later.

Let's start with the one that is definitely the most interesting, the Moto Z3 / Moto Z3 Play

Moto Z3 Play / Moto Z3

Although the initial intentions were good, it seems that Motorola shot itself a little in the foot by announcing backwards compatibility of its Moto Mods for three generations. This means that, for three years, the design of your phone could not vary much – to say the least. The Moto Z2 Play that we reviewed months ago is practically identical to the original; The only advantages we saw were that it launched with twice the capacity and one more gigabyte of RAM. But other than this? The reduction in battery made many see it as a lower version than the original Moto Z Play. And in 2017, the design of the Moto Z2 Play already felt somewhat dated

Apparently Motorola has an Ace up its sleeve: while it cannot modify the rear or dimensions to maintain compatibility with its Moto Mods, it can make improvements to the front. The new Moto Z3 Play will bring a larger screen in a borderless configuration! That's right, Moto is taking advantage of all the front space, which was wasted with edges in the Moto Z / Z2 Play, and is giving us a bigger screen (6 versus 5.5), with an 18: 9 format.

Additionally, the Moto Z3 – the most powerful version of the Moto Z line, which could bring the new Snapdragon 845 – could bring a slightly curved screen, as you can see in this image (which, apparently, is with a Moto Mod that allow to have 5G connections?)

Motorola appears to have put the fingerprint sensor on the Home button, which it appears will continue to use as an interaction mode on its phones. That Home button also allows us to navigate Android with gestures.

Moto G6 / G6 Plus / G6 Play

The most popular line of Motorola, is still the Moto G, thanks to the fact that they give us excellent phones at a very comfortable price. And it seems that this year we will be seeing important improvements to the alignment.

What we can see is a higher screen, no doubt following the trend of 18: 9 screens on smartphones. The Moto G6 will bring a 5.7 screen, while the G6 Plus will bring a 5.93 screen, both Full HD. The Moto G6 Play would have a 5.7, but only HD (720p).

Regarding internal characteristics, the Moto G6 will have a Snapdragon 450 processor(the one in the G5S was a Snapdragon 430) and 3/32 or 4/64 GBs of RAM and storage, respectively. The Moto G6 Plus will bring the Snapdragon 630 (The G5 Plus had 625) and it will be offered in three configurations: 3/32, 4/65 and 6/64 GBs of RAM and storage. For a mid-range, 6 GBs of RAM seems a bit excessive, so perhaps it is a phone reserved for markets with apps that usually require more RAM (Asia)

Apparently both the G6 and G6 Plus will bring both two rear cameras to implement the background blur that we only saw on the G5S Plus in ekl 2017. Therefore, we will have a 12 megapixel camera as the main one, and a secondary 5 megapixel camera that only exists to capture more depth information and to blur the background.

Moto X5

A phone that may not reach South America (because the X4 never did), is the Moto X5. Like the Z3, we have a revamped design, on a phone with a borderless front.

One of the advantages of the Moto X4, and that we may see replicated in the Moto X5, is the waterproofness of the equipment, something that is not usually seen on Motorola phones. In addition, this phone will incorporate dual cameras on the front, in addition to the rear.

Something that we can see at the top is that the Moto X5 could have a notch or edge where the cameras are, covering part of the notification bar.

Undoubtedly interesting phones, especially since we are finally seeing significant changes in the Moto Z3 Play, after a Moto Z2 Play that introduced few improvements. However, it gives me a bit of a shame, because Droid Life – source of the leaks – has already ruined the surprises for Motorola for the whole year. And we are just in January! ?
