Motorola has already charted plans for up to 2015: 6-inch phablet and a smartwatch rumored
Lenovo will take over Motorola from Google (after and if the deal passes regulatory approval), but that does not mean that we’ll see Lenovo-designed Motorola phones from the get-go. Quite the opposite - Lenovo is said to inherit Motorola’s pipelined devices, rumored to be a 6-inch phablet and a smartwatch. There are no further details about the future devices, but we can safely assume that the 6-inch phone would be running on Android. Moreover, Motorola has plans for its second-generation Moto X, and expectations are that Lenovo will not change those plans.

The Chinese company is likely to first have to release all the planned Motorola devices before clearing its pipeline and being able to release brand new, Lenovo-designed Motorola gadgets. It’s not clear how long Motorola’s pipeline is, but we’d bet on at least a year.

Interestingly, rumor has it that Lenovo will also not change the customization options that Motorola offers with Moto Maker. It could, however, swap the place where most of this customization happens.

We should make it clear that all of this information comes from a Chinese source with a good track record on Motorola, having accurately predicted a lot of the features of the Moto X and Moto G before they arrived to market. Nonetheless, this is still a rumor, so take it with the usual grain of salt.

Good Luck MotoNovo...... Just don't use the crappy MTK chips on your Moto devices, STAY with Qualcomm.

Lol, they're aiming for the big game and they've said it. They'll have better luck with Moto than Google because the latter had to fight with one arm tied behind their back. Hopefully they keep making inroads into ergonomics and battery life unlike other useless things like pushing for size or thinness.

I feel like that should be in CollegeHumor's list of new YOLO slang words.

Million dollar idea.... someone should create a list of idioms specifically to express skepticism. That way, every article on here wouldn't need to end with "take it with a grain of salt".

I can't handle that much sodium.

Why 2015? So many other companies have announced ~6" phablets already...
I've always wanted to see a Moto X Fab and a Moto G Fab, but... 2015 is pretty long time to wait.

"Up to 2015." Not "For 2015", Did you even read the headline?

I did
"Motorola has already charted plans for up to 2015"
Doesn't that mean something like "Motorola has charted plans for both 2014 and 2015" already ?
Well, you get a point though. The article didn't say the phablet will be announce in 2015.

YAY... Customization option for Asian countries too...

What 6" Phablet in 2015? WHY?

At that time 6" may become a size of NORMAL phones like S6... And 7.5" may be tha size of Phablets at 2015...
