June: What's New and What's in the Works



While roughly 15% of you are out catching Pokemon this month, our team is heads-down working towards a July 28th launch date for our new phones, network, and plans. We’re excited to ring in this new era for Republic with you all!

We’re also thrilled to have recently announced the inclusion of two new devices that will be included in the launch - the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus. That’ll be an outstanding total of nine new devices offered on the 28th! We also dropped $50 from our initial prices for the impressive Samsung Galaxy S6 and Moto X Pure phones. I’ve personally been test driving the Moto X Pure and it’s a great phone…loving the improved picture quality and slow motion video capture.

We’re also racking up impressive reviews from industry heavyweights who are weighing in our ability to marry tech with quality and savings for all of you.

Finally, we’re getting oh-so-close to delivering Android Lollipop to the Moto E (1st Gen.) phone. Our latest update is here and we thank all these users for their patience.
