After MWC no-show Motorola pledges new phones in April — Moto G6, anyone?

Motorola has announced its first phones of 2018 will be introduced next month.

In a blog post explaining recent changes to its leadership, the Lenovo-owned firm said it was planning to share products next month.

In announcing 20-year Moto veteran Sergio Buniac as new president, Moto wrote: “We realize we’ve had a great deal of transformation over the past years, and we’re grateful for our fans’ support and commitment.

“We’re excited for what 2018 (and beyond!) is going to bring us and look forward to sharing our first products of the year with you next month!”

The blog comes shortly after the Moto G6 reportedly leaked via a premature Amazon UK listing. It’s entirely possible next-month’s event will feature the arrival of the popular mid-range handset.

The best Moto G yet?

The listing said the phone will have a 5.7-inch full HD+ screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio, backing up previous reports. It also promises 4GB RAM, 64GB of storage and 12/5-megapixel cameras.

The phone is likely to be joined by a larger G6 Plus model, but that may arrive at a later date.

We had expected the Moto G6 to arrive at MWC 2018 last month, but the company pulled a no-show.

The Amazon listing, which priced the device at £239, has since disappeared from the site.
