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.

2016 Moto G surfaces in leak, front home button included

2016 Moto G surfaces in leak, front home button included

Good news: the odd Motorola smartphone leaked a while back might not be a Moto X at all but a next gen Moto G instead. Bad news: that means it will have a physical home button. At least that's the implication of this latest batch of leaked photos that show what is allegedly the Moto G4 in all its prototype glory. While details on actual specs remain unknown, the leak does hint at what is practically the first Moto smartphone under Lenovo's full ownership of the former Google subsidiary.

Moto X Pure smartphones get graffiti treatment from artist Futura

Motorola has collaborated with an artist to make 30 custom painted smartphones. The artists is one Leonard McGurr, perhaps better known as the graffiti artist Futura. 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.

Alleged new Moto X leaked with front fingerprint button

Alleged new Moto X leaked with front fingerprint button

Remember Motorola? Yes the company that made the popular RAZR flip phone, got bought by Google, and then got sold off to Lenovo. Considering that sale, the company has been relatively low-key lately, after launching the Moto X Style and friends last year. Of course, we've seen Lenovo design engineer Ashton Kutcher advertising the smartphone just recently. And perhaps Lenovo will need to advertise the next Moto X to death if it will indeed resemble the newest leak that is already earning scathing remarks over the Internet.

Motorola CEO exits Lenovo

Motorola CEO exits Lenovo

Lenovo is reorganizing its innards a bit, and with the mix-up goes Motorola CEO Rick Osterloh. This change has Osterloh out as President and CEO barely 2-years after it was announced that he would be taking the president role ahead of Lenovo's acquisition of Motorola. Back then, former Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside had left the company to become the COO of Dropbox - where he remains today. This news comes about a month after Lenovo announced they'd be de-emphasizing the Motorola brand.

Lenovo now has Ashton Kutcher promoting Moto phones

Lenovo now has Ashton Kutcher promoting Moto phones

"The mobile phone is stuck." If you were told that those words were uttered by Ashton Kutcher, you'd probably start hearing it in the same tone as actor's "Dude, where's my car?" phrase. But Mr. Kutcher's tone on the Motorola blog where he uttered (wrote, actually) those words was serious, very serious. He deplores how innovation in smartphones have basically stagnated, likening it to TV technology where focus has simply been on bigger screens and lower prices. His solution? Why to get a Lenovo Moto smartphone, of course!

New Lenovo Moto smartphone coming in July

New Lenovo Moto smartphone coming in July

while most eyes are already on the flood of smartphones, including those from the likes of Samsung and LG, coming at MWC 2016 next month, the world's largest PC maker has come out to say that it too has a new smartphone coming soon. But "soon" here actually means way down in July. Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang revealed that a "more innovative, more attractive" Moto smartphone for the US will be revealed in a few months, which would make it the first Moto smartphone without the Motorola name and with Lenovo's brand instead.

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 clarifies its rebranding scheme

Motorola clarifies its rebranding scheme

We've said it before and this time, Motorola itself is setting the record straight. Motorola Mobility, the formal name of the subsidiary that Lenovo purchased from Google, isn't going anywhere. It will remain as Motorola Mobility inside Lenovo and will, in fact, be given more control over the Chinese OEM's smartphone direction. What is going away, though apparently not completely, is the "Motorola" name, but only as it is used in official marketing materials, preferring to use the more hip "Moto" brand. In everything else, it's still Motorola. At least for now.

Moto 360 Sport now available in the US

Moto 360 Sport now available in the US

When Motorola revealed its new smartwatch for 2015, it had not just one but two models to show. While The Moto 360 2 is the nominal flagship of the two, the Moto 360 Sport does bring its own level of uniqueness, with some features that the 360 2 doesn't have. And after months of patiently waiting, that rugged and sporty smartwatch is now available for purchase, from Motorola directly among other places. And it will only set you back $299.99, which is quite on par for an Android Wear smartwatch these days.

Motorola is dead! Long live Moto! And Vibe

Motorola is dead! Long live Moto! And Vibe

Before you start hyperventilating and breaking down, no, Lenovo isn't killing Motorola, the company. It is, however, practically putting an end to an iconic name that has spanned decades. The Chinese manufacturer will be retiring the "Motorola" brand in favor of the shorter "Moto" to slap on its high end smartphones. That said, the Motorola name itself will live on but only in corporate talk and documents. Nothing consumers will regularly see. At the end of the day, all of Lenovo's smartphones will soon be under one, single, unified brand: Lenovo.
