Google has very recently revealed that the Android One powered edition of Motorola’s newest smartphone, the Moto X4, is now made available for preordering from the official website of its Project Fi wireless service. For those not familiar with Android One, it is essentially a super basic version of the world’s most widely used mobile operating system, which means it does not come with the usual bloatware added not only by phone makers but also by mobile operators.
Just this week, Venture Beat has acquired a copy of a promotional material for Motorola’s upcoming new smartphone, the Moto G5S Plus. Based on the information found on the material, it appears that the device comes with new upgrades not found in the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus, both of which debuted more than four months ago.
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. Today, the Motorola brand is now owned by Lenovo, a phone maker from China.
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. And then also just this week, HellomotoHK also unleashed images of new Moto X devices that seem to reveal a device with a metal body plus laser auto focusing capabilities.
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. Indeed, the mobile manufacturer is now giving away codes that allow users to unlock the bootloader and then install ROMS such as CyanogenMod.
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. Well, except for the absence of a Verizon Wireless logo and a Droid marking, they may be right about the new Moto X Force handset.
