It appears that Motorola has a full year ahead, that is in terms of smartphone releases -- well at least according to tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass. The famous leaker has recently got hold of an image that portrays a presentation showing Lenovo’s smartphone plans for the rest of 2017. Based on the leaked picture, it appears that the Chinese tech giant is readying to launch at least nine handsets in the next few months.
More than a decade ago, Motorola introduced for the first time a ridiculously slim flip phone called the RAZR V3. This mobile device went on to sell more than 130 million units, and essentially become an iconic symbol of the early days of cellular phones, and at the same time, propel the Motorola brand to the top of the world. But fast forwarding to a dozen years later, it is safe to say that while still a formidable mobile brand, Motorola has seen better days.
The Internet rumor mill has been working overtime recently, especially with regards to the two upcoming newest smartphone offerings from Motorola’s Moto X brand. As reported by VentureBeat, the devices are said to be modular types, basically letting mobile users interchange rear plates with different functionalities.
Back in 2014, Chinese tech giant Lenovo had completed its acquisition of Motorola, and fast forwarding to a couple of years, Motorola seems to be doing okay, or at least that is what Rick Osterloh, president of the company, is trying to convey to the world. Thus, Osterloh is reassuring everybody that they can expect more Moto E and Moto G mobile devices in the future, and also more Lenovo handsets.
In October of last year, Motorola had announced that it had no plans of providing support for Android 6.0 Marshmallow on editions of its Moto X (2014 version) that were locked to specific wireless carriers. Understandably, owners of the device were not too happy with the announcement. But now, it appears that the phone maker is easing on its previous declaration.
No, it has nothing to do with fictional militant mutants. What it is, is a new smartphone offering from Motorola that boasts a shatter proof display screen as its main feature. The Moto X Force was recently introduced by Motorola just this week. At first glance, some may say that it reminds them a lot of the new Droid Turbo 2 smartphone that Motorola just released in the United States market just a few days ago.
Those who just purchased their new Moto X Pure Edition handset and are planning to use their device on Verizon Wireless may be in for some disappointment. It appears that the biggest wireless carrier in the United States is not ready to activate Motorola’s new phablet in its vast network.
The Moto X Pure Edition smartphone is Motorola’s flagship device offering for 2015, and it is now available for pre-ordering, as promised. Interested buyers can get this handset from Motorola’s official online store, and if they purchase now, they can expect their phones to ship in the later part of September.
