New, "exciting" Motorola phone could be announced on June 9

Reportedly, Yang Yuanqing confirmed that an "exciting" Motorola device will be unveiled on June 9. Unfortunately, the Lenovo exec didn't elaborate on the subject.
Recently, we heard about several Moto handsets that could be announced soon, including the Moto X3, Moto G4, and Moto G4 Plus. The Moto G4 showed up in various leaked images, and it seems that it has a fingerprint scanner on the front. However, we don't know if "exciting" is a word that could describe a new Moto G, since this will, most likely, be a mid-range handset at best. So we're thinking that Yang Yuanqing was talking about a new Moto X. Then again, a mid-range phone may be exciting if it offers lots of attractive features at a very low price.
It's been almost 6 months since Motorola last announced a new smartphone (the Droid Turbo 2), so the company certainly had time to work on new (and hopefully great) devices. We'll be here to let you know when we have more details about this.

Moto lost my interest with the "updates" over the last year.

Moto had a fighting chance when it was with Google. It felt like the best of Google was going to be brought to fruition from Moto but now they lost my interest with their piss-poor slow updates.

Slow updates? Aren't they like second place behind google themselves for firmware updates on android versions? And for the exciting phone...I don't feel it'll be THAT compelling. Hope im wrong.

Moto X Pure was the last great Motorola. The Motorola phones directly from Motorola had fast updates. I feel sorry for people who buy carrier branded phones. Something about owning a Lenovo phone is not compelling.

Piece of crap? Motorola X Pure was brilliant and it was released back in september 2015. Lenovo owned Motorola since 2014.

kinda like how people saw VW as bad brands.. they didnt know that it have various luxury brand under it (Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Porsche).. just imagine if they release "Porsche 911 by volkswagen", it sounds wrong, lol they think moto is crap just because they didnt like lenovo.. maybe they'll change their mind if lenovo totally remove their name from moto brand, or if they know that motorola have their own team inside their own building, designing their own phone, while lenovo just help on mass production

How do you guys feel about Lenovo changing the screen to 5.5" for the G, and 5.0" for the E?
