Motorola is mostly a mid-range player in the smartphone market for some time now. There’s the Moto X series, the Moto C series, and the popular Moto G series from the old smartphone maker that serves to confuse buyers when it comes to making a purchase decision. And hence, according to a new report, the Lenovo-owned brand will be simplifying stuff by expanding the Moto G series.
According to BGR India, Ken Wong, President of Lenovo Asia Pacific, stated that Motorola intends to simplify its product portfolio. Adding fan to flames further, noted tipster Evan Blass also tweeted that Motorola will be introducing four new Moto G series devices next year – Moto Play, Plus, Power and the standard variant. The earlier three are already present right now so Motorola is adding one more – Power. Furthermore, the tipster also says that the Moto C, Moto M, and Moto X lines could be axed this year.
The Moto G series started as just a single model in 2013. However, it split into three other handsets – Turbo, Play, and Plus – with the Moto G3. Blass’ tweet suggests that the new Power model could either be a replaced Moto C and the Moto M is probably just a new series so it doesn’t need a new model. This is just our belief though and we’re yet to see this official talk materialize into concrete action.
