• Motorola has always launched Moto G series at the start of the year and then release Moto E, Moto Z series later in the year
  • Moto G6 is expected to come in three variants-- the Moto G6 Plus, the Moto G6, and the Moto G6 Play

Motorola was rumored to unveil a new line of Moto G series in February at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, but it never materialized. Now, the company has announced a change in leadership and confirmed that there will be a new product launch in April.

Sergio Buniac, a 20-year veteran of Motorola, will take over as the company's new president and the chairman. Buniac will be replacing Aymar de Lencquesaing, who has relinquished the post to spend more time with his family.

"With over 20 years of service at Motorola, Sergio's CV combines end-to-end industry experience including a strong track record of growth in leading our Latin America business (we are now #2 in that market!), as well as stints in strategic planning and product management. Sergio is highly respected within the industry and we know he's the right choice to lead us forward as President and Chairman of Motorola," Motorola said in a statement.

The company also confirmed that it is looking forward to sharing their first products of the year with fans next month.

If previous release pattern is any indication, Moto G is always the first series of phones launched by Motorola every year. Moto E, Moto X, and Z series come in sequential months, respectively.

Moto G6 series images and spec-sheet have also surfaced on the internet quite frequently in the recent past. The series has passed several network certifications in several countries. So, fans can expect Moto G6 series in April at least in Asia and Latin American regions.
