Around a month ago, Lenovo-owned Motorola announced its Moto G6 series smartphones that include the Moto G6, Moto G6 Play and the Moto G6 Plus. Well now, the company has announced another smartphone dubbed Moto 1s, which is nothing but a re-branded Moto G6.
As the Moto 1s is a re-branded Moto G6, it’s needless to say that it has a design and hardware that’s exactly the same as that of the Moto G6. It has the same 3D glass back, and has the same 5.7-inch IPS display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution.
Below the display is a home button that houses fingerprint scanner, and above it is a 16 MP camera (instead of 8 MP on Moto G6) for selfies and video calls. At the back, you get a dual camera setup which is a combination of one 12 MP and one 5 MP camera, and below it is the Motorola bat-wing logo.
Under the hood, the Moto 1s comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 chip running the show which is paired with 4 GB RAM. The smartphone has 64 GB of internal storage, and, you can expand the storage up to 128 GB via microSD card if you want.
Like the Moto G6, the Moto 1s also ships with a 3000 mAh battery that draws power from a USB Type-C port, however, the only major difference between the Moto G6 and the Moto 1s is that the former runs stock version of Android 8.0 Oreo whereas the latter runs ZUI 3.5 which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
