Motorola may ditch the DROID brand for Verizon-bound smartphones

Since Chinese giant Lenovo purchased Motorola from Google, much has changed regarding the US handset maker's portfolio and lineup of smartphones. Although Lenovo decided to keep the Moto brand on Motorola's smartphones, the Chinese company considered ditching it for its own.

Now there are rumors that another brand used by Motorola for some of its smartphones launched in the United States may be dropped by Lenovo. According to Evan Blass, the Verizon-bound Motorola smartphones launched in the future may not wear the DROID brand any longer.

Any speculations on the matter would be kind of pointless since this is just a rumor at the moment, so we'll just have to see what happens when the next Motorola smartphone makes its debut at Verizon in the coming months.

If Lenovo decides to ditch the DROID brand, in the end, it will be interesting to see whether or not it will be replaced with another one.
