In July last year, we got the Moto E5 Plus with a 5,000mAh battery & Snapdragon 430 SOC. At the IFA 2019 in Berlin, Motorola unveiled the Moto E6 Plus, the latest member of the “E” series, featuring slimmer bezels, an extra camera on the back & a MediaTek Helio P22 SOC.
MOTO E6 PLUS – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The design of the E6 Plus is pretty normal for a budget phone as the phone featuring a display with a notch on top but a huge bottom bezel. There is a glossy plastic back panel & the fingerprint scanner is also placed on the back. There is a micro-USB port on the bottom alongside the speaker grill & the headphone jack is there on top.
So yes, the design is definitely not the highlight of the phone, except for the gradient colors.
The Moto E6 Plus features a 6.1-inch HD+ IPS panel with 19.5:9 aspect ratio & 1560 x 720 pixels resolution. The SOC powering the device is the octa-core 2.0GHz MediaTek Helio P22 & there is 2/4GB RAM along with 32/64GB storage. 3GB RAM for the base variant would’ve been better, but for some reasons, Motorola decided to go with 2GB RAM. There is a microSD card slot as well so you can add a microSD card up to 512GB.
There is a dual-camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 13MP f/2.0 shooter with 1.12-micron pixel-size & a secondary 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture. While the Moto E5 Plus had a front flash, the E6 Plus doesn’t have one since there is a tiny notch. Some camera features include Panorama, Bokeh, Face Beauty, FHD video recording, etc.
The battery gets a big hit as it is now a 3,000mAh unit compared to the massive 5,000mAh unit on the last year’s Moto E5 Plus. The battery is removable, so that’s nice. The phone comes with a 5W charger in the box. Android 9 Pie runs out of the box.
MOTO E6 PLUS – PRICING & AVAILABILITY
The Moto E6 Plus comes in four colors – Caribbean Blue, Rich Cranberry, Polished Graphite & Bright Cherry. The price is €139 for the European market for the base variant, which translates to around $154. It will be available in Latin America beginning September 5th, and later in September in Europe. It will also roll out across the Asia Pacific in the coming months.
