In case you didn’t know, Lenovo took control of Motorola Mobility back in 2014. What this means is that the Chinese company is now at the heart of producing the current-gen Moto phones, including the latest versions of Moto G, Moto X, and Moto E.
Lenovo also owns another smartphone subsidiary known as ZUK. This week, this company unveiled a new smartphone that features one-of-a-kind specs under the hood. Dubbed the ZUK Z2 Pro, this device packs the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC and an amazing RAM of 6GB. This is massive for a smartphone, but given the ever-growing number of memory-intensive applications, the need for more RAM is becoming an inevitable thing for smartphone users.
While presenting the ZUK Z2 Pro to the world, the CEO of Lenovo Yang Yuanqing went further to say a few words regarding the next phone to come as far as Motorola is concerned. According to Yuanqing, the upcoming Motorola smartphone will be an “exciting” device. If everything goes according to plan, this device will be here on June 9. Despite revealing the release date of this “exciting” Motorola phone, the chief did not mention a thing about the name or specs of the phone to be unveiled under the Moto tag.
Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus, and Moto X3 could probably be announced
While the Lenovo chief was very careful not to spill out any secrets regarding the upcoming devices, word has been moving around claiming that the Chinese company is prepping to unveil a series of handsets. Among the rumored phones to be released this coming June include the Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus as well as a Moto X3.
The Moto G has already shown up in several leaks, with the highlight being the included fingerprint sensor on the front panel. However, given that the Moto G series has typically been a mid-range phone, it is possible that this “exciting” phone is something else, possibly the Moto X3. But wouldn’t a mid-range smartphone be exciting if it packed nifty features at a low price? It definitely would.
The last time Motorola announced a smartphone was last year and this was the Droid Turbo 2, an enhanced version of the Droid Turbo. It is about time the company came in with something exciting as the CEO calls it, otherwise it will be hard to convince people to once again believe in a brand they used to value some years back.
