Moto G6 and G6 Play drop to $160 ($90 off), $150 ($50 off) at a few retailers

If you're in need of a cheap phone, the Moto G line is almost always a great option. The venerable series has practically redefined what it means to have a good budget phone here in the US, so when we see discounts off the already low prices, we pay attention. Right now, both the Moto G6 and G6 Play have dropped to $159.99 and $149.99, respectively, at several retailers.

Motorola is readying a phone with four rear cameras according to these CAD renders

What do you do when your reputation is declining and you need a shiny new product to give you a boost? Add more cameras, of course. Motorola appears to be plowing ahead with Moto Mods despite them not being a very good idea in the first place and the G-series' best days might be behind it. There's also little to suggest that a new RAZR device with a folding screen will be any good, but maybe a new quad cam phone is will be the answer to the Lenovo-owned company's problems.

Google likely to enable Call Screen on Android One phones by Motorola and Nokia

Google has been taking the fight against call spam pretty seriously these days. Things started back in 2016 with a (literal) big red warning sign and have progressed to formal verification of callers. Also joining the act last year was Call Screen, a Pixel exclusive answering system that removes any reason to directly interact with the spammers. While it was a safe bet that Call Screen would eventually transition outside of Google's own handsets, we now have a good reason to expect that to happen, and it will begin with some Motorola and Nokia phones.

With the Moto G7, Lenovo finally killed the G-series magic

Motorola started the trend of cheap phones that aren't junk with the original Moto G back in 2013. That was the first time you could buy a phone for a couple hundred bucks that would get you through a day without making you want to hurl it through the nearest window. The success of that phone led other OEMs to target lower prices, and the battle rages to this day. However, Motorola has moved the Moto G a bit more up-market. Each successive generation has been a little more expensive, but some premium smartphone features are still missing.

Details about how Motorola's foldable RAZR phone will work leaked

Several rumors are suggesting Motorola is considering releasing a foldable device soon, including a hint from the company's VP of Global Product, Dan Dery. After all, it's only fair to expect Lenovo's subsidiary to try to rival Samsung and Huawei in this promising market. According to the grapevine, the manufacturer is looking at reviving the iconic RAZR brand with a flip phone that features an internal bendable display and a smaller outer screen. Details on how the latter will interact with Android have leaked, and the least we can say is that it looks quite limited.
