While announcing a change in its leadership last week, Lenovo-owned Motorola had confirmed the launch of its first 2018-series phones in April. Now, it has officially announced the date.
Motorola Brazil has commenced sending out invites for a product unveiling event on April 19 in Sao Paulo. Though there is no word on the name of the device, it is most likely to be the Moto G6 series, reported Android Pit.
For several years, Motorola has been launching Moto G series first ahead of the release Moto E and Z (& X series before that) models later in the year.
The specification, images and even the prices of the G6 series had been leaked extensively on the Internet and the leaks were seen as a strong sign of an impending launch.
