Lenovo to install ZUK's ZUI on future Moto smartphones, but only in China

The Moto brand is well-known around the world, but sales of smartphones have been disappointed in some markets like China. Although Lenovo, the owner of the company, allowed Motorola to keep using its brand on smartphones, the decision did not influence in any way sales in the Mainland.

Because of that, Lenovo desperately wants to boost sales of Moto smartphones in China and believes that switching to a different UI will increase the popularity of its products.

Apparently, the information has been recently confirmed by Lenovo's VP Alex Chen Yu, who said that in order for his company to better compete with domestic companies, which are using customized UIs like MIUI, EMUI, and Flyme.

Lenovo thinks that replacing the stock Android UI that usually comes pre-installed on the Moto smartphones with ZUK's customized ZUI will help boost the appeal of its devices among customers in China.

The only thing that remains to be determined is whether or not Lenovo will put ZUK's ZUI on flagship smartphones as well, or the move is aimed and entry-level and mid-range handsets launched in China.

IKR, i hate all these Chinese skins as well. Used EMUI and MiUI and both suck. I hope Lenovo doesn't shoot Moto on the foot by adding ZUI on international models...

If it was, Moto will be DOA.
