Motorola has gone through some major changes during these past couple of years, and every gadget enthusiast out there hoped for the best. Back in 2012, Google acquired Motorola for $12.5 billion, and as we know, there has been a really long period of time when we’ve waited for a glimpse at what new handsets Motorola might launch next. Eventually, everything went back on track and the company continued with its plans to release the newest Droids and the intriguing Moto X.
Nonetheless, the alliance with Google recently came to an end, when the search engine giant sold Motorola to Lenovo for $2.91 billion. I know what you might be wondering: until Motorola and Lenovo get their bearings, will Moto struggle to launch new devices, while the competition leaps ahead? Well, apparently that shouldn’t be the case and fans of the brand might be in luck.
Motorola’s 2015 Line-up and the Moto X Sequel Already Designed
During our digging for new information concerning Motorola’s future, we’ve found information suggesting that the Motorola line-up for 2015 is already designed. More so, the same goes for the new Moto X – Lenovo will not change anything, except maybe for the location where the customization will take place (probably in one of Lenovo’s China based factories, in addition to Motorola’s Forth Worth plant). Unfortunately, the source hasn’t specified whether the Moto X sequel will be launched this year, or the next one. Either way, the 2015 line-up allegedly consists in various devices, including a 6-inch phablet (the rumored Xplay ?) and a smartwatch.
In the end, we’re fairly certain that Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola will not change much – at least not at first. Nothing has been scrapped, and Moto will continue to push its “already pipe-lined devices” just as it did when Google took the wheel.
We should also point out that this particular source has a pretty flawless track record, and has delivered solid information for both the Moto X and the Moto G long before these handsets have seen the light of day. Until we find out more, stay tuned and feel free to share your thoughts on the matter.
