A few days after a full press render of the Motorola Moto E5 Plus showed up on the internet, images of the Moto G6 Play have now begun surfacing. The Moto G6 Play has now been received by Taiwan’s certification agency NCC who have released a number of images of the phone and its box contents.
Based on what we can make of the released images, we find the design to be almost identical to what we saw on the Moto E5 Plus. That said, music lovers can stay rest assured that the phone does sport a 3.5 mm headphone jack given that the company bundles the earphones in the box.
Some info to go along with the #motoE5plus leak yesterday.
3GB RAM, 32-64GB, 5.8" 720x1440 18:9 IPS, 5000mAH, and that "other" cam hole are focus and depth sensors.
ROW COULD have a MTK 675x variant.

The news arrives also just days after the phone was allegedly spotted on Geekbench where a number of its key specifications were revealed. The Moto G6 Play is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC, 3 GB of RAM and will run Android Oreo 8.0 out of the box. Older leaks also suggest that the phone will come with a 5.7-inch HD (720 x 1280 pixels) display and a large 4,000 mAh battery.
Considering Motorola currently sells only two phones under the Moto G series, the Moto G6 Play is expected to be a new variant which is now rumoured to debut alongside the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus.
As far as pricing is considered, the Moto G6 Play is expected to be the most affordable of the three variants.
Coming to news related to the Moto E family, it has been rumoured that this year's range will include three phones, the Moto E5, Moto E5 Play and Moto E5 Plus. Based on findings of tipster Andri Yatim, there are claims that the Moto E5 Plus will come in two variants, one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC and another with a MediaTek MT675X SoC options. The tipster also states that the entire 2018 Moto E range will come with dual rear camera setups.
