Rumor: Lenovo To Release Only 'Moto' Phones In The Future


Lenovo is one of the largest tech companies in Asia, and also globally, as they're selling their products all over the world. In addition to manufacturing laptops and all sorts of tech, Lenovo is also a smartphone manufacturer. As many of you probably already know, this company had acquired Motorola Mobility from Google a couple of years ago, and has been releasing Moto-branded devices ever since then (in addition to Lenovo-branded ones). The Moto Z and Moto Z Force are the flagship Moto-branded devices for this year, and Lenovo has been pushing out the 'Motorola' brand bit-by-bit for a while now.

That being said, some people though that we will continue seeing Motorola's Moto-branded devices released under the Lenovo brand, so that they will be called 'Lenovo Moto', or something of the sort. Well, it seems like a change is coming, though they might be released under different branding, at least according to a new rumor. According to the source, we won't be seeing Lenovo-branded devices any longer (including Vibe-branded phones), the Lenovo P2 which is set to be released soon will be the last Lenovo-branded smartphone to hit the market. Now, the source isn't exactly clear whether we're going to see 'Lenovo Moto' devices in the future, or simply Moto-branded ones. In any case, if this rumor is accurate, you can expect to see 'Moto' branding on every single smartphone Lenovo decides to release in the future, as the Lenovo Mobile division of the Lenovo Group won't release Lenovo-branded devices any longer.

Do keep in mind that this is just a rumor at this point, and truth be told the explanation is not all that great, so we'll have to wait for Lenovo to officially explain what is going on. We have been waiting for such a change from the company considering they've been selling their devices under two separate brands, though we're wondering whether the 'Lenovo' name will be included in the process at all, or will Moto completely take over and be the only branding out there, without the 'Lenovo' part. In any case, stay tuned, we'll report back as soon as more info surfaces, as per usual.
