Lenovo executive tells us what to expect with the 2016 Moto lineup; fingerprint scanners are a go

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.

Nothing against lenovo hardware but their vibe ui is plain ugly and a mess. The k4 note however looks different in terms of hardware styling and they seem to have toned down their ui for more optimisation

"Motorola and Lenovo will merge their UI into one" Motorola is so special because their phones always run near stock android. My first impression on this Moto by Lenovo thing is very negative.

What? Motorola and lenovo's UI will be combined? I thought Lenovo will use stock instead? Either way, if what you're saying is true, I feel like lenovo's UI would still be ugly.. Stock, and Lenovo at the same time.. Stock only would be better..
