In April Motorola launched the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play in Brazil. Now the Lenovo owned company announces that it will be launching the two smartphones in India. Motorola put a teaser in their official Twitter handle and said that the smartphones are “coming soon”. As history suggests, Motorola is quick to launch globally launched smartphones in India. The predecessor Moto G5 was launched just weeks after announcing in the MWC 2017 event in Barcelona.
The teaser came in the form of a 14-second video which calls out gaming pros, techies, movie bluffs, artist, photographers, explorers, and fashionistas from India. Motorola also created a dedicated site for customers to register themselves for notifications related to the launch. Interestingly, the company will be launching both the smartphones in China today so we can expect the India launch a few weeks away.
