    Unwilling to give up on either its own brand when it comes to mobile devices, or Moto-labeled products that are way easier to market in the Western world, Lenovo likes to keep itself busy, recently unveiling the P2, A Plus, K6 trio, Moto E3 and E3 Power, Z, Z Force and Z Play, as well as the G4, G4 Plus and G4 Play. Up next, a Moto M with model number XT1662 is also expected, initially speculated to be dubbed Moto X (2016), and now reportedly heading exclusively for China. Bizarrely enough, this might be manufactured domestically by Lenovo, as opposed to the Chicago-based Motorola Mobility ...

    After bizarrely launching with little to no fanfare exclusively in Hong Kong last month, Lenovo’s entry-level Moto E3 Power finally gets a slightly noisier expansion to Indian shores today. As the not-so-subtle name suggests, you’re looking at a souped-up take on the original third-gen Motorola Moto E, sharing an overall design language with the Moto G4 Play as well, but swapping the latter’s Snapdragon 410 processor for a presumably slower, more frugal quad-core 1GHz MediaTek MT6735P. Some budget-conscious consumers may prefer their easily pocketable 5-inch phone that way though, ...

    When Motorola, or just Moto, how parent company Lenovo likes to call the Android OEM these days, pointed the finger at Samsung for allegedly “stealing” its “original” Always On Display feature about a month ago, the attack came off as bitter, misguided and even a little desperate. Then, while everyone was mocking the newly unveiled iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the Moto Z makers again took aim at the troubled Galaxy Note 7-producing Korean giant, accusing it of not adhering to “the highest standards in quality and testing” of batteries. Relatively fair point, though it still felt low to ...

    Now even though Lenovo claims that the first ever selfie was taken with a Hasselblad camera on the moon, that's debatable. What isn't a topic of questioning is the quality of the brand, its legacy in the photography industry, and how it has decided to reached mobile. Instead of launching a smartphone camera, or partnering with an OEM to add technology to an existing phone, Hasselblad has decided to parter with Moto and produce a new MotoMod that can do far more. Disclaimer, our own pro-fotographer/senior editor Adam Lein has already reviewed this device, and this video is to just serve ...

    Hello Moto. Today we're taking our first look at the first, proper, joint flagship phone venture between Lenovo and Motorola. These two companies are both known for creating "flexible" gadgets. Motorola's MotoMaker is easily the most complete platform available for allowing consumers to personalize and customize their phones. Lenovo has a solid reputation for building modular business accessories and multi-mode PC's. He have high expectations for what these two manufacturers should be able to accomplish when working together. We recently received a very well stocked reviewers kit with both ...

    We're eagerly anticipating the next generation of Moto phones, and we'll have more information to share soon, but before we get the full scoop on Moto Z and the MotoMod backplates, the editorial team here at Pocketnow has weighed in. This is an important release for Lenovo, especially in light of the Moto division under-performing, so here's our wishlist for a successful Moto phone launch! Adam Lein - Set the standard for modular I’ve had a great interest in modular/expandable smartphones since Compaq first started the idea with the iPAQ 3600 PDA (which later became a smartphone with the ...

    Samsung might skip the naming of its next phablet, jumping to the Note 7. Pebble smashes Kickstarter goals. Should companies be allowed to use Kickstarter as a "pre-sale" platform?

    It seems that we can very nearly confirm Evan Blass's reporting on Motorola using the "Moto Z" brand in some way. The company has a trademark application filed at the US Patent and Trademark for the term dated May 17. In his VentureBeat article, Blass detailed how the Moto Z term would replace the Moto X branding on the company's flagship smartphones, including ones produced for Verizon Wireless under a line called "DROID". As Motorola is likely to get hold of the term, it may simply become a matter of "use it or lose it" come the next major smartphone launch on June 9. Source: US ...

    It's about time that we put that other foot forward. We saw Evan Blass put out what the Moto G4 Plus may look like about a month ago. Now, just a few days before we're expecting a big reveal in India from Moto, Blass decided that it's "All in the Family" on Twitter. Say hello to your little bro. https://t.co/am51AwvMGf pic.twitter.com/KivM4AM9Sq — Evan Blass (@evleaks) May 14, 2016 Apparently the "little bro" won't have the fingerprint sensor on the bottom that the Moto G4 Plus supposedly has. It goes along with an earlier blurrycam leak of the device. We also note that the sensor — ...

    Two phones. Two places. One fate. Sounds dramatic, but the Moto G4's upcoming arrival hasn't come without some decent hype — including the assertion that a Moto G4 Plus could also on the way. And while a Moto launch event in India is just days away, we're following another flurry of activity on the phones. First up is an FCC certification award to a couple of Motorola Mobility phones, one being model number XT1622, the other XT1642 and both filed under the same FCC ID. While these may be the model numbers for the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus, the certification also means that we should be ...

    We're not sure if this is the cherry on top of a new phone or something different, yet not far off. Whatever it is, Moto has sure had a fast-flowing news cycle in the past 24 hours. HellomotoHK is back at it again, flashing some Motorola confidential property in front of some corrugated metal. A real front panel of a Moto device — you'll want to see the Moto logomark just above the fingerprint sensor that's not on these renders — doesn't really provide much information, but the Google+ post tells us that the device is a "New Moto Flagship with AMOLED & ShatterShield Screen." ...

    Looks like "modular" is in fact the buzzword of the year. At least, we can see a continuation of the trend if we trust VentureBeat's Evan Blass with some more information about this year's Moto X (or Moto Xs?). This follows on from the renders we saw of the devices along with a potential DROID Turbo 3 from HellomotoHK earlier. "A person who was briefed on the plans" said that both phones will have 5.5-inch AMOLED screens, be metallic and get sold under the Moto X brand. The pair will also have exchangeable backplates to add different functions to the device.   Thing is, the unit ...

    "Moto by Lenovo" just rolls off the tongue, right? After Motorola Mobility COO Rick Osterloh said that the Motorola device branding would give way to Moto by Lenovo, the media (us included) went into a frenzy — as if the word "Motorola" was to soon vanish from our vocabularies. The lead engineer on the first cellular telephone at Motorola, Martin Cooper, stated to Pocketnow that: It is a sad historical event when the company that created so much modern technology, including the cell phone, will no longer have a consumer presence. The reaction machine had overblown the move like an ...

    Buying a new smartphone isn't at all cheap, and depending on the device you purchased, fixing a shattered display can be extremely expensive. Aftermarket solutions don't always work as intended, and getting a factory display replacement doesn't always mean just replacing the shattered glass. Motorola made a solid point on the Droid Turbo 2 announcement for how long the company spent trying to find a solution for this, and today the company explains why. By now you've probably noticed that at least one of your friends is using a device with a shattered display. Most display repairs cost the ...

    Last week Pocketnow's Jaime Rivera wrote about why Verizon should kill the Droid name. Verizon did something for Android that Google and other OEMs were having a hard time doing: marketing the brand. The entire platform was up against Apple's killer product: the iPhone. HTC, Samsung, Motorola, and others were building smartphones powered by Android, but named different things. Each manufacturer had their own brand, sub-brand, model, and sub-model strung together to try and describe their product. As one might expect, it got confusing. Then Verizon did something brilliant: they stole the ...
