These Motorola Moto G6 and E5 variants will be sold in the US

Last week, Motorola Mobility announced no less than six new smartphones running Android 8 Oreo: Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, Moto G6 Play, Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, and Moto E5 Play. While some of these handsets are already available in markets like Brazil and Mexico, folks in the US can’t buy them yet. 
Motorola said that its new phones would be released in the US “in the coming months”. However, not all models will be sold stateside. For example, US customers won’t be able to purchase the most powerful among them – the Moto G6 Plus. So what is Motorola bringing stateside …


Motorola confirms 70 million lifetime Moto G sales, sets 30 million goal for Moto G6

Motorola has set itself a goal of shipping 30 million Moto G6 units. It’s fair to say that the Moto G series has certainly been one of the Chicago-based company’s success stories, with the five previous generations selling a combined 70 million units worldwide. With the launch of the latest lineup, however, Motorola is banking on high sales in order to boost the Moto G series’ lifetime numbers to over 100 million units.

At the company’s current pace of sales, the present total works out at an average of 14 million Moto G units per year. But considering the gradual rise in popularity of …

Moto Z3 Play with dual-camera setup & glass build appears in render

Motorola’s upcoming Moto Z3 Play has just appeared in a new render. The Chicago-based brand is currently expected to reveal its upcoming upper-midrange device towards the beginning of summer and now, following a number of case leaks, an official press render has apparently appeared, revealing the device’s design entirely.

Continuing with the company’s recent trend, the Moto Z3 Play sports a 6-inch, 18:9 display which minimizes bezels at both the top and bottom. Because of this, the fingerprint scanner has been removed from the front of the device and, in its spot, the company has placed …

Deal: Save $220 on Motorola's Moto Z2 Force

Several days ago, Motorola Mobility announced its first phones of 2018. However, since all the new handsets are part of the Moto G and Moto E series, there’s no high-end model among them. In consequence, Motorola’s best and most advanced smartphone to date remains last year’s Moto Z2 Force.  
Normally costing $720 in the US, the Motorola Moto Z2 Force is currently offered for $500, so you can save $220 on it. The phone is compatible with most relevant US carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular. This deal is available until …

Motorola Moto G6 & G6 Play hands-on

The Moto G line has been a longtime strong competitor in mid-range landscape, so it’s no surprise that another year brings yet another successor into the equation. This time around, though, we’re getting a one-two punch as both the Moto G6 and G6 Play are being introduced simultaneously packing trendy features – while complemented with affordable prices.

The affordable champions are back: meet the Moto E5 Plus, E5, and E5 Play

The Motorola Moto G series are usually often mentioned in conversations about no-nonsense midrangers that balance affordability with performance well. However, it’s not the cheapest line Moto has in store. That would be the Moto E family — the most basic Motorola phones that still have a distinct Moto flavor to them, plus a special feature or two to set them apart.

The new members of the Moto E line are the Moto E5 Plus, Moto E5 and Moto E5 Play. Of the three, the Moto E5 Plus is the highest end proposition, followed by the E5 and E5 Play, the latter being the cheapest one.

As for the rest of the world, well, Motorola is only saying that the phones will “roll out over the coming months in various countries in Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America.”

Bummer, but at least one of the devices, the most affordable Motorola Moto E5 Play, will be exclusive for North America, …

The Moto E5 line might not receive any major Android updates

Motorola isn’t promising any major OS upgrades for its newly-announced Moto E5 series. The company launched the new line of devices yesterday alongside a trio of Moto G6 smartphones. Despite guaranteeing at least one major update for the latter series, though, it appears the company couldn’t make the same promise when it came to its budget line.

In recent history, the company has been historically slow pushing out software updates to its devices, despite the fact that all run a near-stock experience of Android. At yesterday’s launch, however, the company did give a glimmer of hope by announcing …
