As you all know by now, Motorola was acquired by Lenovo a while back. That made a lot of Chinese consumers happy, because Lenovo is a Chinese smartphone OEM and it’s logical they’d want to offer Motorola products in China. During CES, Motorola chairman announced that Motorola will return to the Chinese market and that they’ll hold the conference this month. He also announced that Motorola will launch the Moto X (2014), Moto G (Dual-SIM 4G version) and the Moto X Pro, which is actually the Nexus 6, but it’s called differently.
Motorola has announced via their official Weibo (Chinese social network) account that the conference will be held at the Beijing National Convention Center on January 26. Motorola actually posted a countdown timer on their official China website, for those of you interested. So, January 26 is the date, it will be interesting to see how well will Motorola devices well in China. I’m sure that there are consumers in China that are interested in Motorola products, but Motorola-branded smartphones are relatively unknown to regular consumers I believe.
You won’t be seeing any noticeable changes in the specs department as far as these three handsets are concerned. Their cellular bands will be adapted to the Chinese market, but other than that we’re looking at the same specs sheet these devices rock everywhere else. The Moto G (2014) will feature a 5-inch 720p display along with 1GB of RAM and 8 of expandable internal storage and will be powered by Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor. Motorola Moto X (2014) will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM and 16 / 32GB of non-expandable internal storage. This handset is powered by the Snapdragon 801 quad-core chip and it ships with a 13-megapixel camera. The Moto X Pro (aka Nexus 6), features a 5.96-inch QuadHD AMOLED display along with 3GB of RAM and 32 / 64GB of non-expandable in-built storage. This beast is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor and it ships with a 13-megapixel OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) camera and a dual-LED flash one the back.
Chinese consumers will have a plenty of Motorola-branded handsets to choose from soon, are you interested in any of these handsets? Do you own any of them?
