Lenovo to flood the market with 60 different smartphones this year (Motorola models not included)
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.
