Motorola Moto G6 at a glance

When does the Moto G6 come out? Available from June 2018
What’s new about the Moto G6? Snapdragon 450, dual cameras, 18:9 display
How much does the Moto G6 cost? $399 outright

Motorola's taken its Moto G recipe and honed it for the Moto G6 with pleasing results.

Motorola has focused in the past few years on providing solid budget handsets. The Moto G series is its long-standing (and most widely available in Australia) take on an affordable phone.

The Motorola Moto G6 doesn't break new ground or bring new concepts to the budget/mid-range space, but it's a sound handset for the money.
