With China’s Lenovo having bought Motorola from Google last year, it should come as no big surprise that Lenovo yesterday announced that “Motorola is returning to China” with three devices. The new Moto X, new Moto X Pro and new Moto G with 4G LTE will all go on sale in early 2015.
Motorola has a long history in China and we are pleased that smartphone fans there continue to be passionate about our brand and products. Chinese consumers have long been at the leading edge of smartphone use, blazing trails in mobile messaging, media and more. Motorola’s pure Android based devices will give them new choices in how they connect to the world.
The Moto X will launch first and will be available in early February. It will initially be available “in several different designs” but Motorola will launch its Moto Maker design tool after Spring Festival to offer full customization options to buyers.
The Moto X Pro (pictured below) will launch after Spring Festival. Based on details available so far, it appears to be a rebranded version of the Google Nexus 6. It will sport a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 6-inch WQHD (2560×1440) display, 13MP rear camera with OIS and a 3220 mAh battery.
Motorola is also bringing its new Moto G with 4G LTE to China. Spotted recently in Brazil, the new Moto G builds on its predecessor by adding LTE connectivity. It also adds dual-SIM capabilities.
Pricing details were not announced but you can register on the Motorola.com.cn site to get updates.
