Now that Lenovo officially owns Motorola, the American company can once again set up shop in China and it plans to do so with the Moto X Pro smartphone. The handset is basically a rebranded version of the Nexus 6 and it comes with the OEM’s own software enhancements onboard.
Additionally, the company will be bringing the Moto X and even the LTE version of the Moto G which is yet to be officially revealed. The Motorola Moto X Pro is quite an apt name for the rebranded Nexus 6 mainly because the phone is essentially a larger version of the current flagship with beefier hardware, of course.
Design-wise, the handset still looks the same, but the Google and Nexus logos have been removed. You get the same pure Android experience with Lollipop out of the box and all of the goodies present on the Motorola-made Nexus 6.
Here’s an overview of the Motorola Moto X Pro’s specs:
– Android 5.0 Lollipop
– 6-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display
– 2.7GHz quad core Snapdragon 805 SOC
– 3GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB storage options
– 13MP OIS rear camera, 2MP front snapper
– 3220mAh battery
Coming to the LTE Moto G, this handset will most likely offer a slightly better processor, the Snapdragon 410 based on previous leak, with 4G connectivity and dual SIM support. The company is yet to disclose technical information on the device. As for the Moto X flagship, be sure to check out our review for an in-dept look at the handset.
The Motorola Moto X Pro and Moto G 2014 LTE will be available in China after Spring Festival, while the Moto X flagship will go on sale from next month. Pricing and exact availability details are still under wraps. Also, we’re yet to see whether the Moto Maxx smartphone will be released in the country as well.
