Motorola isn’t even trying to sell the Moto G6 Plus in India

Today we have a new addition to the over-branched Moto G-series in the form of the Moto G6 Plus. The phone arrives a few months after the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play were launched in India. The G6 Plus is a midrange phone meant to be an upgrade in pretty much all terms from the phones mentioned above.

The Moto G6 Plus sports a tall 18:9 5.9-inch Full HD+ display and is encased in an aluminum-and-glass design. Fortunately or not, the display doesn’t have a notch like most other phones released in 2018. Also, the display is only protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The phone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 630 SoC and is coupled with 6GB of RAM. In terms of storage, you get a single variant with 64GB of internal storage with an option to further expand it up to 256GB via a microSD card slot.

The phone is equipped with a dual-camera setup at the back which comprises of a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. These cameras feature dual-pixel autofocus technology for quicker focus lock and Google Lens integration for object and landmark recognition. The front camera is a 16-megapixel sensor that supports authentication via face unlock. The Moto G6 Plus also features a fingerprint scanner below the display.

The phone packs a 3200mAh battery that supports TurboPower charging technology. For the same, a 15W charger also has been included in the box.

The Moto G6 Plus is priced at INR 22,990 (US$ 310) and will be available on Amazon India & Paytm Mall, or at Moto Hubs and other offline retail partners. It is only available in the Indigo Black Colour.

Offers:

Users buying the phone on Paytm Mall will be eligible for a cashback of INR 3,000. Jio users will also get a cashback of INR 4,450 on recharges of INR 198 and INR 299.

EOTO’s Take:

I really have no idea what the Moto execs had in mind when they decided to price the G6 Plus at a hefty price of INR 22,990. With that price tag, it literally is more expensive than the POCO F1 which has a Snapdragon 845 at its heart compared to the meager 630 that the G6 Plus uses. The phone is grossly over-priced on paper for what it offers and clearly indicates how Moto has forgotten why the Moto G series was established in the first place.
