According to a report by BGR, the teaser is such that it goes on to confirm some of the significant features of the upcoming smartphone. The teaser does not necessarily mention which smartphone it is talking about as such. However, by renders and rumours, it is safe to say that both the smartphones, i.e., Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus will go on to sport dual rear camera setups on the back panel. There’s a short video of the teaser doing the rounds of the internet, which goes on to show off the Black colour variant of the upcoming smartphone. The device can be seen flaunting a metal frame along with glass back and curved edges. The same kind of specifications appears on the Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphone as well. The video further goes on to offer a glimpse of the dual rear camera setup with a dual tone LED flash. According to a report by Android Headlines, the smartphone seems to be packing a front-facing fingerprint scanning system that is located right below the display.

The video further showcases a volume rocker that can be found located right next to the textured button. It is interesting to note that the textured dial looks a lot like the Alert Slider of the kind that recently appeared on OnePlus smartphones. The smartphone goes on to pack a thin and long speaker grill right above the display. The longer speaker grill could double up as a stereo speaker for one and all. However, the teaser does not provide any hint at the specifications of the smartphone. “One little look. But don’t tell anyone!
