12 new Moto Mods per year, promises Motorola

After the LG G5‘s lackluster reception and Google scrapping Project Ara, Motorola’s Moto Z line seems to be the last hope for modular phones and Motorola is betting big on Moto Mods and the company seems committed to their vision of the modular smartphone.  In fact, Lenovo’s Moto execs told a small group of journalists this week, the company itself will commit to releasing at least 12 new Moto Mods a year.

That’s according to a report from Cnet, which says that Lenovo’s Moto Mods director John Touvannas specifically wants to release more modular accessories in 2017 than the company has this year. Continue reading “12 new Moto Mods per year, promises Motorola”

Potential Moto X 2017 leaked image and render mock up revealed

This has been an interesting year for Motorola and its fans. Instead of the Moto X 2016, the company brought forth a completely new lineup, the Moto Z family. Many thought of this situation as an ending for the Moto X and any future devices to sport the name. But now it is highly likely that a new Moto X is on the way thanks to the recently leaked Lenovo device roadmap for 2017.

This mocked up render from Tech Droider gives an idea of what a 2017 Moto X phone could look like if it were to be released. Continue reading “Potential Moto X 2017 leaked image and render mock up revealed”

Lenovo to give up its own brand name in favour of Moto for future smartphones

Lenovo bought Motorola from Google as a rather large purchase and since then there has been some confusion as to what Lenovo planned on doing with the acquisition. On one hand, Lenovo replaced almost the entire original Motorola staff, while on the other hand it let the brand Moto not only live but drive some serious innovation in the form of moto mods.

According to an unconfirmed report today, the Chinese manufacturer looks to set a definitive direction going forward. Lenovo may be about to put the branding it received as part of the deal to more use. The report claims the famous “Moto” brand will be placed on all future Lenovo headsets.

Motorola Moto Z, Moto Z Play and the Moto Mods Launched in India

Over the last few years, we have seen innovation slow down to a crawl in the mobile phone industry. Almost every phone launched feels like an incremental upgrade, offering maybe one or two features that really stand out from its competitors or even the previous generations. Modular design, a concept we first heard of from Google’s Project Ara was supposed to bring forth the next phase of smartphone evolution.

Unfortunately though, Project Ara was sacked. LG tried its hand at modular design with the G5, but the implementation had consumers shying away from the device. Or it could’ve been the fabulous sales of the S7 Edge. Lenovo’s Moto Mods is conceptually better than LG’s attempt, in that everyone will agree. And Lenovo is pushing the Moto Z lineup and the Moto mods with all its guns blazing. Skip the Sevens anyone? Continue reading “Motorola Moto Z, Moto Z Play and the Moto Mods Launched in India”

Here is the new Moto boot animation

“Hello Moto” was Motorola’s slogan for a long time, since around or before the time of the RAZR flip phone. This iconic slogan was also a default ringtone for many who owned Motorola Handsets ( Me!).

In the past, while still under Google leadership, Motorola frequently update the boot animations on phones like the original Moto X. These weren’t necessarily big feature changes or a part of a software update, but they did add some life to phones that were months old and were something to look forward to.

Lenovo Moto M likely to ship with bundled Microsoft Apps

There was a time when Microsoft was seen as the enemy of the Linux and Apple communities. Understandably, at the time, the company only wanted Windows to succeed. Nowadays, however, the operating system is sort of inconsequential. Microsoft seems happy to have its software succeed on ‘competitor’ platforms such as iOS, Android, macOS, Ubuntu and more.

If you follow Verdict, you might already know that  Microsoft and Lenovo entered into a patent cross-licensing agreement that covers Lenovo and Motorola devices running Android OS which also included an agreement that Lenovo will preload Microsoft’s productivity apps — including Microsoft Office, OneDrive and Skype — on select Lenovo devices that use the Android operating system.

Rumoured Lenovo Moto M live images and some specs leaked

It’s been a couple of weeks since we heard about the Moto M. A new ‘Lenovotorola’ device with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, and an overall design reminiscent of the Moto X with a curved backside, yet, quite generic-looking.

It appears that with Moto M, Motorola is looking to bring out a device for those looking for something more middle tier. The Moto M that was recently leaked has now had more details confirmed thanks to a leaked images by TechDroider
