Did you think Samsung was worried about Motorola's potential before they made the deal with Google.

The Moto X and G received a lot of praise except for the fact that it was only available in the US(Moto Maker) and an expensive price. But then again both of Samsung's flagship phones(S4 and Note 3) are also very expensive off-contract. Did they anticipate Google aiding the Moto X's price drop as an indication that Motorola might become a threat to their Galaxy line with their next phone of this year before they got sold to Lenovo?
