Less than two years after acquiring it for $12.5 billion, Google decided to sell Motorola for less than $3 billion, but while keeping most patents. Fortunately, its buyer Lenovo does not seem to plan any major changes in the company's roadmap and the upcoming product launches should continue as expected, at least in the near future.

First, there seems to be information that suggests a new Moto X is ready for deployment, but its release date is unknown at this time. Lenovo could change the location of its production and customization, probably adding one of its Chinese facilities to Motorola's own Forth Worh plant. Considering the launch frequency of competing handsets, it would be a good move for Lenovo to launch the Moto X sequel later this year and not in 2015, but this remains to be seen.

According to older rumors, a phablet dubbed "Motorola Xplay" could be released later this year. The only information about its characteristics mentioned a very large screen and nothing more. Now it looks like a 6-inch phablet appears in Motorola's 2015 line-up together with a smartwatch, but there are no details about any of them.

Since Lenovo did not announce its own smartwatch yet, the release of such a wearable bearing the Motorola label seems like an interesting choice. As soon as official information on the matter becomes available we will get back to the topic.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
