Although most leaks and rumors that we heard so far mentioned a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 as the heart of the upcoming Moto G6 Plus handset, this mobile device features in fact the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chip, which is listed by Geekbench as a Snapdragon 660 due to a bug. Other features apparently include 4 GB RAM and a 5.93-inch display.

The new Moto G6 handsets are scheduled to arrive in less than a week, but there is still enough time for a few new rumors and leaks until the April 19 launch arrives. When it comes to the Moto G6 Plus, one of the attributes that kept surfacing so far seems to have been slightly wrong. To be more accurate, the Moto G6 Plus has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor inside, which has been listed by Geekbench as a Snapdragon 660 due to a bug.

Mobiel kopen published an article about the latest sighting of the Moto G6 Plus on Geekbench two days ago, quickly following with this update: "It is not Snapdragon 660 as mentioned earlier but Snapdragon 630. This is a bug from Geekbench in which the chipset is incorrectly listed as Snapdragon 660 while it is the 630."

Next week's launch will probably come without any big surprises since the Moto G6 handsets have been already listed by a few online retailers (sadly, without any pricing information). Leaving the processor aside, the Moto G6 Plus also features a 5.93-inch display with a 2:1 ratio and a resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 pixels, 6 GB RAM, a 3,250 mAh battery, a front-facing fingerprint reader, 64 GB of internal storage and microSD support, Android 8.0 Oreo, as well as a 3.5 mm audio jack, NFC, 4G LTE, and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. 

As mentioned above, the price is still unknown, but we should find out all about it next week. Considering the specs above, how much would you pay for a Moto G6 Plus?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
