Motorola has recently introduced three new smartphones for the Chinese market, and by doing that, basically re-entered the Chinese market. It was obvious this way going to happen ever since Lenovo acquired Motorola Mobility from Google. Motorola has introduced the 2nd-gen Moto G and Moto X handset, along with the Moto X Pro phablet, which is essentially the Nexus 6, but it’s named differently in China. That being said, the Moto X is already on sale in China, and the Moto G and Moto X Pro will follow soon.
