Lenovo to out a Motorola flagship in the summer, with 'many in-house camera tricks'
Lenovo's chief exec sat down for an interview recently, and confirmed that Motorola's first phone concocted after the buyout will be released as soon as this summer. “We have many new models in development with the Moto brands,” he mentioned, “so you may see in summer us launching some very exciting products, including phones and watches.”
Apparently, the Moto X (2015), or whatever it gets called, will have "many in-house camera tricks," which will be a far cry from the camera quality of the Moto X (2014). Judging from the supplied picture, we can expect enhanced auto scene detection abilities, and superior low-light performance, all coming in the summer months of Q3.
Well, what will that phone be, and will it still carry the Moto brand? Famed leakster Ricciolo came to the rescue with a helpful hint. Building on its enigmatic claim that the new Moto flagship will be "smarter than smartphones," Ricciolo now tips that Lenovo will apparently pay a very special attention to the camera abilities of this thing. This has already been somewhat confirmed by Motorola's marketing chief before, so where there's smoke, there might be fire, too.
Given that Lenovo started putting some extra focus on the camera in its phones recently, including a specialized shooter in its portfolio - the 16 MP Vibe Shot - we can reasonably expect that the company would try and replicate some of the photographic experience to the new Moto flagship, too. Here's to hoping. As for the branding, the little "X" next to the Motorola logo might be a hint that Lenovo will make changes to its structure - after all, the CEO mentioned in the above interview that in some regions where Motorola has great recognition its phones will be released under the Moto logo, while in places like China or India, Lenovo will use dual branding.
