Motorola as a company has seen a lot of change in recent years. It went from being an independent company to being owned by Google and then Lenovo, and in the process released spectacular smartphones such as the Moto X, Moto G, and Nexus 6. Now that the transition period is nearing an end with Lenovo having engulfed the mobile OEM, it’s time for the Motorola smartphone sales figures to start stabilizing as well, and they definitely have in the fourth quarter of 2014.
According to the earnings report released by parent company Lenovo, Motorola sold about 10 million smartphones during the period of the quarter. It doesn’t state which smartphones specifically – though it’s logical to think that the Moto G would likely be one of the bigger sellers – garnered the most sales, but this is an impressive quarter indeed. It’s even more impressive when you consider this is more than 100% growth when compared to the same quarter in 2013.
With expansion into China with new phones such as the Moto X Pro, Motorola is poised to expand its sales even further over the course of the next few months and years. It’s good to see the company on the right track, though, and it’s definitely welcome that it seems Motorola and Lenovo are getting along well.
