Motorola has officially launched the Moto E6 as the latest Moto E series smartphone. It is an entry-level smartphone and successor to the Moto E5. It also happens to be the only offering for the year as compared to three variants Motorola launched last year. But if we talk about the changes, it does not exactly appear to be a worthy successor, especially when you will consider the pricing and compare it with the competition.
The Moto E6 sports a 5.5-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) Max Vision IPS LCD display with 18:9 aspect ratio. There are bigger bezels and no notch like the predecessor but in terms of the size, it happens to be smaller. Under the hood, it is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and coupled with 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB of internal storage with microSD card support up to 256GB.
In the camera department, you will find a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and LED flash. The rear camera also features a manual mode, Auto HDR, RAW photo support, and Google Lens integration. It has a 5-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture, screen flash, beauty mode, and Auto HDR.
The whole package is powered by a 3,000mAh battery which is 1,000mAh smaller than the one available with the Moto E5. Motorola is still claiming it to be good enough for lasting one day. It will be running stock Android 9 Pie out of the box. The Moto E6 has been priced at $149.99 with sales starting this summer. There are two color variants Blue and Black.
