Motorola has just announced in a blog post that it is making a return to China. Following the company’s acquisition by Lenovo, Motorola Mobility says that it is returning to China with three of its newest devices. Motorola calls China “one of the world’s fastest-growing smartphone markets,” and promises to release the Moto X, Moto X Pro, and Moto G with LTE in early 2015.
The Moto X will be available in China in early February in a few different designs, the company says. At some point after the Spring Festival in China, however, Motorola will allow users to design their own Moto X via Moto Maker, much like users in other countries can do now.
The Moto X Pro, which is essentially the Nexus 6 without the Nexus branding, will also be available in China after the Spring Festival. The Moto X Pro features a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and a 3220 mAh battery. There’s also a 14MP shooter on the back and front-facing stereo speakers.
Finally, the Moto G will launch in China by the end of February, as well. Motorola is also launching the colorful Motorola Shells in the country to allow users to make their Moto G more personal. The Moto G features 4G LTE connectivity, a 5-inch display, quad-core processor, and dual-SIM capabilities.
Motorola says that it is “eager” to build a direct relationship with Chinese customers by giving them the choice between these three smartphones. The Moto X will be available in early February, while the Moto X Pro and Moto G will arrive towards the end of February at the earliest.
Moto G: Choose a phone that keeps up with you. (Available after Spring Festival) Moto G was designed with you in mind, focusing on what you’ve said you value most. The curved design fits comfortably in your hand and nicely in your pocket, with colorful Motorola Shells included so you can switch to match your style. Surf the Internet quickly and multitask with ease as Moto G offers 4G LTE and quad-core processing speed, incredible call quality, dual-SIM capability, a brilliant 5” HD display and stereo sound.
We’re eager to build a direct relationship with Chinese consumers and empower them by bringing the mobile Internet to millions of people. With the new Moto X, new Moto X Pro and new Moto G with 4G LTE, the people of China will have the power to choose.
