Moto G6 US availability: pre-orders, release date, carriers, and more

Over a month ago, Motorola took the wraps off of the Moto G6 line, including the G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play, but we haven't heard anything on the availability side since then. We'd previously expected them to become available in mid-May, but that obviously didn't happen.

Motorola introduces its latest budget lineup with launch of Moto G6, G6 Plus, G6 Play, Moto E5, E5 Plus, and E5 Play

For smartphone fans who enjoy a good spoiler, we started the year off with a pretty substantial one, when in mid-January a very convincing peek at Motorola's 2018 lineup surfaced. That included some follow-ups to the affordable Moto G5 family in the form of the Moto G6 and G6 Plus, and it wasn't long before we also got a look at some even more budget-friendly options when a leak outlined the Moto E5 Plus. It had been feeling likely that we'd be seeing at least some of this hardware make its debut this week, ahead of possible sales next month, and today we see that confirmation arrive, as Motorola launches the Moto G6, G6 Plus, G6 Play, E5, E5 Plus, and E5 Play.

New Moto G6 series could be announced April 19th in Brazil

Motorola is yet to launch a new phone in 2018, a further sign that the once thriving OEM is becoming less and less relevant in the mobile industry. While the successor to last year's poorly-received Moto X4 has apparently been scrapped, we know that new Moto G devices are on the way, likely to go on sale in mid-May. Now we have a potential date for the launch.

According to an invitation sent to Android Pit, the Lenovo-owned company is having an event on April 19th in São Paulo, Brazil. There's no information about which specific devices will be announced, and it's entirely possible that this could be a Brazil-specific event for something completely different.
