Motorola’s smartphone lineup hasn’t evolved too much over the past few years, but recent releases have finally adopted the taller aspect ratios that have become popular. Now, it seems an upcoming Motorola device will also be adopting a notch.
The best gifts for Android users
The notch here uses the “waterdrop” design that has been popping up recently. Unlike many other notches, this design simply houses the front-facing camera and subtly cuts out of the display rather than cutting deeper and taking up more of the usable screen real estate.
Oddly, the software’s “about” page lists this device as a Moto G6 Plus and a Moto G4. Most likely this is just a placeholder of some sort, as the Moto G6 Plus has already been on the market for quite some time. The leak also says that the fingerprint sensor is being relocated to the back inside of the Motorola logo.
