[Deal Alert] LG G6+ down to $400 on Amazon ($100 off)

The LG G6 might not be the latest and greatest anymore, but the upgraded G6+ on Amazon is a reasonably good deal right now. Amazon just shaved $100 off the price of this device, leaving it at a mere $399.99. There's not a ton of competition in that price range, so the G6+ might be a good purchase.

[Deal Alert] Verizon has the Moto G6 for $5/month for 24 months with a new line ($120 off)

Motorola's G-series phones generally provide a pretty great bang for your buck.

[Deal Alert] LG G6+ down to $500 ($300 off) at Amazon and B&H

LG is adding 'ThinQ' branding to the year-old G6 because why the hell not

LG's mobile business has been doing some questionable things lately. It all began to go downhill when it released a V30 with slightly better specs as the "V30S ThinQ" for a whopping $929.99 (which it has since lowered by $200). It then updated the existing V30 with "ThinQ" branding as well. The company now seems to be doing the same thing with the G6 for some reason, despite the phone being over a year old.

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.

LG allegedly rebranding its G-series of phones, won't be calling next flagship 'LG G7'

LG's been using the Gx naming scheme for a couple of years now, starting with the Optimus G in 2012 and continuing with the G2 in 2013, the G3 in 2014, and so on. The latest G-series phone, the G6, was launched in early 2017, meaning that it's due for a refresh. But according to a company official, LG won't be using that branding for the G6's successor, instead opting for something new.
