All three of these smartphones were immediately available for purchase in Brazil, and then went on sale in Mexico in the following week. Well now, weeks after the announcement of these smartphones, Motorola is teasing the launch of the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play in India.

Motorola India has shared a video on Twitter that teases the launch of the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play in India. The Moto G6 and G6 Play both have a similar design and sport a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. However, the display on the former has a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels whereas the latter has a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels.

Moreover, the Moto G6 also comes with a dual camera setup at the back (12 MP + 5 MP), whereas, the Moto G6 Play boasts only a single 12 MP snapper on its back. Having said that, the Moto G6 Play packs a huge 4000 mAh battery underneath whereas the Moto G6 has a smaller 3000 mAh battery.

Having said that, there’s no word on if and when Motorola will launch the Moto G6 Plus in India. Besides, there’s also no word yet about the launch date of the Moto G6 and G6 Play in the country. However, Motorola’s “Notify Me” registration pages for G6 and G6 Play have gone live, hence, we can expect these smartphones to debut in India by late May or early June.
