This year Motorola added a bunch of new phones to its lineup. In addition to the Moto E, Moto G, and Moto Z series, we saw the launch of the Moto C series and the return of the Moto X. Motorola also refreshed the G series six months after it launched. However, one phone the didn’t get a release this year is the Play variant of the Moto G series.

The first iteration of the Moto G Play was released last year as part of the 4th generation Moto G series. It packed less powerful specs than the Moto G4, such as a smaller display and battery.

According to Evan Blass, the 6th generation Moto G will see the return of the Play Variant. The Moto E series will also get a Play variant for the first time. So that is two extra phones for next year’s lineup. The lineup for both series according to Evan is as follows:

  1. Moto G6 Play
  2. Moto G6
  3. Moto G6 Plus
  4. Moto E5 Play
  5. Moto E5
  6. Moto E5 Plus

The announcement has gotten mixed reviews. While some are excited about it, others say the lineup is already saturated with phones that differ only slightly. There is also the case of some phones not getting support after their release.
