Lenovo executive tells us what to expect with the 2016 Moto lineup; fingerprint scanners are a go
A Lenovo executive has passed along some interesting information about the 2016 Moto lineup. The devices, as we discovered last week, will be known as Moto by Lenovo, and Senior VP Chen Xudong says that the handsets will all come with an embedded fingerprint sensor. The use of the word "embedded" could mean that the phones will employ Qualcomm's ultrasonic scanners which do not require buttons or sensors, and can be embedded in the screen.

Each of the 2016 Moto handsets will feature a 5-inch screen or larger, and will offer special designs to complement the needs of consumers in the East and the West. Lastly, Motorola and Lenovo will merge their UI into one for use on 2017 models.

Lenovo will use the Moto name on its high-end models, while the entry level and budget phones will use the Vibe brand. Overall, there should be about 15 handsets released by Lenovo this year with each brand getting roughly a 50-50 split (which obviously is impossible with an odd number).

Nearly two years ago, Lenovo purchased Motorola from Google for $2.91 billion
