Chinese-owned Motorola will put the Moto X and Moto G on sale in China soon

New, 6 comments

Now that Lenovo's purchase of Motorola is in the books, the company will be bringing Motorola's newest smartphones back to the massively growing Chinese market. According to a blog post posted by Motorola, the 2014 Moto X, Moto G, and a "Moto X Pro" (which essentially sounds like the Nexus 6) will all be available in China in the coming months. The Moto X will be ready for sales in early February, but at first only a select number of customized versions will be available. Users can visit Motorola's site to vote on them — but later in the year, the full suite of customization from the Moto Maker site should be available. The Moto G and Moto X Pro will come later in the spring, around the same time as the full lineup of Moto X options. It's a little surprising that the super-cheap but still good Moto E isn't available, but it seems that Motorola wants to focus on strictly having LTE-capable phones for the China market.
