Motorola will re-enter the Chinese market with new, mysterious products
In the last couple of years, Motorola didn’t release any new handsets in China, basically abandoning the smartphone market there. But now, after China’s Lenovo bought Motorola Mobility from Google, Moto is seemingly getting ready to make a comeback.

Motorola’s official Chinese website is informing us that new products are going to be announced in the near future. There’s no word on exactly what Motorola will introduce in China, but it’s said that two mysterious handsets - XT1079 and XT1085 - might be included. These are expected to feature LTE connectivity, but little else is known about them.

Not long ago, we heard that Motorola would soon unveil a successor to the ultra-affordable Moto E, so perhaps this will be announced in China, too. Of course, Motorola might return to China only with already-announced handsets, like the second generation Moto X and Moto G. Or perhaps with the Moto 360 smartwatch? We’ll probably find out soon what all this is about, so stick around if you’re curious about Motorola’s Chinese comeback.
