As expected after the Lenovo acquisition, Motorola on Wednesday announced its re-entry in the Chinese market. The company will be launching its second-gen Moto X, second-gen Moto G 4G LTE and the Moto X Pro (re-branded Nexus 6) smartphones in the country. Motorola stated that these smartphones will go on sale in early-2015, without specifying pricing details.
“Motorola has a long history in China and we are pleased that smartphone fans there continue to be passionate about our brand and products. Chinese consumers have long been at the leading edge of smartphone use, blazing trails in mobile messaging, media and more. Motorola’s pure Android based devices will give them new choices in how they connect to the world,” stated Motorola Mobility in a blog post.
According to Motorola, Moto X (2nd-gen) will be the first Moto phone to go on sale in the country in early-February. The company will initially be offering select colour options of the smartphone, but after the Chinese spring festival, the full-fledged Moto Maker will be launched in the market.
Moto X Pro and Moto G (2nd-Gen) 4G LTE will arrive around the same time (after the Chinese spring festival) in the country.
