Lenovo to flood the market with 60 different smartphones this year (Motorola models not included)
Lenovo finished 2013 as the world’s fifth largest smartphone maker (behind Samsung, Apple, Huawei and LG), and the company obviously doesn’t intend to exit top 5 this year. That’s why, according to Chinese media, throughout 2014 Lenovo wants to launch a total of 60 different smartphone models, half of them being LTE-capable. Of course, we’re now in the second half of the year, and Lenovo already introduced various new smartphones, like the high-end K920 (which sports a Quad HD display), or the affordable A805e (which is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor).

Lenovo hopes to sell a total of 80 million smartphone units this year, almost doubling the numbers from 2013, when it managed to commercialize 45 million units. About 60 million of those 80 million are expected to be sold in China, Lenovo’s home country.

The smartphones that Lenovo will sell until the end of the year do not include Motorola handsets - not just because Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility is still waiting for some regulatory approvals before being completed, but also because the two companies will operate separately anyway. The Motorola brand will allow Lenovo to have an important presence in the US market.

Cool it. Sony, Samsung and Lenovo are in good competition that offer Android user choices.

Lenovo seem to have the resources to take on Samsung.

Let the fight begins!!

Well, it works spectacularly well with Samsung. And tbh it's not a bad strategy at all. Send smartphone in to every possible category.

im sure lenovo will continue to flood the market with smartphone in the future but definitely not the motorola brand phones, because that is their best line of phones in my opinion . they would not just risk the reputation they made recently for updating their moto phones
im not sure if u understand me but im sure you guys got the point im trying to make ;)

They need to incorporate a better UI with these new phones.. old UI is hideous and slow!

A 4.7-5" phone would be great.
