These Motorola Moto G6 and E5 variants will be sold in the US
Last week, Motorola Mobility announced no less than six new smartphones running Android 8 Oreo: Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, Moto G6 Play, Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, and Moto E5 Play. While some of these handsets are already available in markets like Brazil and Mexico, folks in the US can't buy them yet.
Motorola said that its new phones would be released in the US "in the coming months". However, not all models will be sold stateside. For example, US customers won't be able to purchase the most powerful among them - the Moto G6 Plus. So what is Motorola bringing stateside after all?
