A "more innovative, more attractive" Moto smartphone is launching this July in the US, says Lenovo exec
Not long ago, we heard a few things about the Moto smartphones that are expected be released this year, including the fact that all should feature fingerprint scanners, and screens of at least 5 inches. We also heard that Lenovo (which bought Motorola Mobility from Google in 2014) is ditching Motorola branding from upcoming high-end smartphones, replacing it with Moto (or Moto by Lenovo). Now, we have info about a specific Moto handset that's bound to hit the US this summer.
The Wall Street Journal reports that, while talking about growth opportunities in emerging markets, Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang also revealed that the company wants to launch a “more innovative, more attractive” smartphone in the US. The handset should be available in July, and will take advantage of the fact that Moto is a famous brand among US smartphone users (unlike the Lenovo brand).
Yuanqing Yang didn't say anything else about the upcoming smartphone, so we don't really know what to expect from it (after all, innovative and attractive can mean many things).
Recently, Lenovo and Motorola released interesting smartphones, including the Droid Turbo 2 (pictured above), which is the world's first handset to feature a shatterproof display. Motorola's know-how and Lenovo's financial power is certainly a combination that can spawn innovation, so we're looking forward to seeing what future Moto smartphones will bring us.
