Moto X (Play) 2016 sighted on GFXBench, MediaTek inside

Lenovo insisted that news of the Moto X's death are highly exaggerated. Motorola's former flagship still caters to a specific market, whatever that may be, and a 4th gen model is still in the works. As if giving credence to that assertion, a new Motorola smartphone was spotted at GFXBench's website. Based on the model number and less than premium specs, it could be the 2016 Moto X Play. Or perhaps the only Moto X for the year. Curiously enough, the smartphone is noted to be running on a MediaTek processor.

Moto X, G, and E are not yet dead, so says Lenovo

Moto X, G, and E are not yet dead, so says Lenovo

As they say, reports of the Moto X's death are highly exaggerated. That is, if you ask Lenovo about it. The Chinese OEM, who is now steward of Motorola's brand and devices, has made it clear that, at least for now, the Moto X isn't getting retired. And neither will the Moto G or even the Moto E. Of course, that's only "for now" and companies have been known to change their minds. Thus, the future of at least the Moto X is still left hanging in the balance.

Tomorrow is Motorola’s big day, here’s where to watch it

Tomorrow is Motorola’s big day, here’s where to watch it

June 9 will be an auspicious day for two companies. Well, a company and a half. It is the start of Lenovo's Tech World conference and, naturally, Motorola will be there, too. While Lenovo itself will have a few mobile devices to show off, Motorola has its own thing as well. Tomorrow, we'll finally get to see if the Moto Z, or maybe just the Moto X4, can really bring Motorola back to the top the way the RAZR did nearly a decade ago.

Moto does an LG: Moto Z, or X, to also get modular

Moto does an LG: Moto Z, or X, to also get modular

Modular smartphones seem to be a hot thing again. LG may be the first OEM to more or less make that dream a reality, but the biggest fires were fanned by Google's ATAP, which was then part of Motorola, which was then under Google. That seems to be coming full circle, as Motorola, now under Lenovo, is leaked to reveal a modular smartphone next month, perhaps even more modular than the LG G5. That is the latest rumor surrounding the Moto Z which is scheduled to debut on June 9.

Motorola RAZR takes center stage in June 9th event teaser

Motorola RAZR takes center stage in June 9th event teaser

Motorola, and Lenovo, seems to be playing the Throwback Thursday card in teasing its upcoming event where it is expected to reveal a rebranded flagship line. Motorola unequivocally calls to mind the success and ubiquity of its RAZR flip phone, especially among the youngsters of the previous generation (a.k.a. today's professionals). Of course, the video's real motives are open to interpretation and speculation, but suffice it to say, Motorola is trying to drum up hype and expectation that would be equivalent to the prestige that the RAZR enjoyed back then.

Moto Z tipped to replace Moto X as new flagship phone

The company’s two tipped handsets are said to go by the codenames Vertex and Vector Thin; per a new leak, the Vector Thin will supposedly launch as the “Moto Z Style,” while the Vertex will launch as the “Moto Z Play."

Moto X4, DROID version photos leaked with odd design choices

Moto X4, DROID version photos leaked with odd design choices

It's been a while since Motorola has put out a smartphone that was the center of the market's attention. It seems, however, that the fourth gen Moto X will generate a lot of noise, and not all of them will be good. If you thought the physical home button slash fingerprint sensor on the front of the 4th gen Moto G was bad enough, take a gander at what is supposed to be the Moto X4's newest design. That includes a large, bulky camera sensor smack in the middle of the smartphone's back.

Motorola’s gone completely tone-deaf with teasers for Moto G 2016

Motorola’s gone completely tone-deaf with teasers for Moto G 2016

This week Motorola India made a series of Tweets teasing their next big handset - but in the process, they seem to have tapped in to the wrong sort of market. Tweeting each of the following images with a "#missing" tag, Motorola seems to have inadvertently lead users to a collection of actual missing people, making the appearance of each of their fake Missing People images look like they're attempting to cash in on tragedy.

Alleged 2016 Moto X sighted with Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM

Alleged 2016 Moto X sighted with Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM

After a brief but sensational stint as a Google subsidiary, Motorola's profile in the smartphone market has somewhat declined in status, overshadowed by the bigger players in the industry. While Moto's smartphones remain competitive and even desirable for those who prefer a near vanilla Android experience, those just haven't received the same accolades and hype as the first Moto X and Moto G. The expected new Moto X might turn heads again, but not all in good ways. It will, at least, have some of the latest specs, if this Geekbench sighting is the real deal.

For this collaboration, Motorola provided Futura with 30 Moto X Pure smartphones and the artist used the phones as his canvas for a work of art. The smartphones were laid out on canvas or paper and then spray painted with multiple colors.

Motorola will unlock your Moto X, but only on Verizon’s network

Motorola will unlock your Moto X, but only on Verizon’s network

If you purchased a Moto X back in 2014, you've probably been pretty upset at the fact that you won't be getting the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. A little while back, Motorola announced that they wouldn't be pushing the update to carrier-locked versions of the popular phone. But now the company does have some good news, in that department.

Motorola Marshmallow updates list released: Moto X, Moto G, DROID

Motorola's Android upgrade schedule for the Moto X, Moto G, DROID Turbo, and more have been revealed with Marshmallow in mind. The software that'll be coming to a number of Motorola-made smartphones will be Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and with it features like Android Pay, Now on Tap, Doze Mode, and Direct Share.
