  New rumor says Motorola Moto E4 Plus will cost 160 The Motorola Moto E4 Plus has been the subject of a handful of leaks and rumors until now, with the latest one revealing the handset’s design through press renders. Now, a new rumor, related to pricing information for the handset, has surfaced. The rumor, which comes in the form of tweet from a relatively unknown tipster, says the Moto E4 Plus (unlocked) will cost 160 (around $205).

Moto Z Play units in Germany has been delayed till next month

  A few days ago, Motorola Germany announced in a tweet that the Nougat update for the company’s Moto Z family of devices is now available in the country. So it was reasonable to assume that the update has started hitting all three phones in the series, including the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z Play. However, turns out that’s not the case, as the Moto Z Play hasn’t started receiving the update. This is despite the company promising a few weeks back that the device will be updated to Nougat towards January end. Motorola Germany has now revealed that…

Moto phones sold in China may soon run ZUK’s custom software

Lenovo runs three smartphone brands semi-independently – its own Vibe line, the Moto phones and the ZUK brand.

The Moto Z flagship and Moto Z Play mid-ranger specifically, currently being used by 25 beta testers. It seems that (for now

Moto M live images is doing the rounds

The upcoming Moto M is one of Motorola’s most-leaked smartphones in recent memory. It’s unclear if this has anything to do with the fact that it will combine a full metal build with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner (the latter being a first for a Moto device), or with the fact that it’s expected to launch in China first. Either way, we’ve seen a lot of leaked renders and live images depicting the Moto M. Earlier today, it was found in the

Moto Z backs to add X-like class with leather, wood and more

Lenovo is doing a major rebrand of Motorola – from dropping the “Motorola” name itself (in favor of “Lenovo Moto”) to dropping the Moto X as a flagship. The new Moto Z will feature a modular design, which among other things will be used to easily customize the back. Several backs were photographed – from “ballistic nylon” (like the Moto X Force) through leather and a couple of wood options. Motorola’s

Now is about that time. Everyone is over with MWC. Samsung, LG, and HTC duke it out in the beginning of the year, then Motonovo- wait, what should we call it now? Lets call it Moto for now. We are still far away from Motos usual launch timeframe of around late-Summer to early-Fall. The picture of a leaked photo submitted to HelloMotoHK shows just enough of what we might want to know about such a device. This device was spotted on

All Moto devices in 2016 will have fingerprint scanners, Lenovo exec says

Despite basically pioneering the concept of a smartphone with a built-in fingerprint scanner with the Atrix 4G back in 2011, Motorola hasn’t been quick to jump back on this train last year, when such sensors have been featured in pretty much every high-end Android device. That will change in 2016, however. Chen Xudong, SVP of Lenovo and president for Lenovo China and Asia Pacific, has revealed that all Moto-branded handsets launching

Moto X Play: Boringly Good

The Moto X name has been associated with Motorola’s flagship smartphones ever since the original X was launched over two years ago. The Moto X was a good phone that was let down by its poor camera and battery life, though its successor fixed the battery problem to a large extent. 2015 represents a dilution of the Moto X brand, first with the launch of the ‘super flagship’ Moto Turbo, and more recently, the

Moto G 3rd Gen: Experience Trumps Specifications

The smartphone industry has a specifications problem and the tech press must share a large part of the blame. We are living in a world that’s obsessed with octa-core processors, 13-megapixel cameras, and gigabytes of RAM, but we don’t spend enough time talking about the thing that really matters – how it feels to use a phone on an everyday basis. In a bizzaro alternate reality where the iPhone 6 launch happened
