The Moto G, Moto X, and the Moto X Pro will lead the way for Motorola’s re-entry into China.
Fresh off its acquisition by Lenovo, Motorola has announced that it is making a return to the Chinese market this year. The company will be launching two existing devices, the 2014 editions of the Moto G and the Moto X, and one new device, the Moto X Pro, in the country. The Moto G will sport LTE connectivity, a feature the global version does not currently support, and the Moto X will be offered in a variety of styles, with consumers getting the option to choose which styles will be available once the device goes on sale.
As for the Moto X Pro, it is basically a non-Nexus version of the Nexus 6. Its specs include a 6-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, and a 3,220mAh battery. The phone will no doubt run Motorola’s own version of Android, which emulates stock Android but adds a few useful features on top.
The Moto X will go up for sale in early February for an undisclosed price, while the Moto G and Moto X Pro will be available after Chinese New Year (February 19). The Moto X Pro is expected to be exclusive to China, though the 4G-enabled Moto G will be making its way to other markets sometime later this year, if previous leaks are to be believed.
