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.
