Moto X Pure Edition unboxing and hands-on

This morning the Moto X Pure Edition arrived on our doorstep fully customized and ready to be the next big competitor for the top-tier smartphone crown. This device, like many Motorola devices, is able to be ordered online with custom colors and materials - because of this, we thought it uniquely important to do an unboxing video for you to see. Most smartphones look the same as one another right out of the box - Motorola's Moto X Pure Edition comes uniquely built for the maker.

Moto 360 leaked to have Sport variant, coming November [UPDATE]

It seems that nowadays the trend is to have different variants for a smartwatch. Apple did it and just now Samsung did it. Now it seems that Motorola is joining the train when it unveils the next Moto 360 smartwatch. At least, according to this latest leak. Aside from the 2nd Moto 360 we've seen so far, which is also leaked to arrive September, there will also be a Sports model with more vibrant color options and what seems to be a more rugged rubber strap.

The new Moto 360 may be smaller and cheaper

The new Moto 360 may be smaller and cheaper

Up close and personal with the next Moto 360, it would appear that things are getting a bit smaller this time around. Strange for the smartphone world where devices are always getting bigger, but perfectly reasonable for the Wild West of the wearables market. Here it seems as though the next Moto 360 keeps the "flat tire" display, changes the position of the power button, and added bit of hardware to the top and bottom for easier switching of bands.

Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Just a little over two months since Chen Xudong took over the helm of Lenovo's mobile business, he is making perhaps the biggest announcement to the biggest change in the subsidiary. In the still undisclosed future, Lenovo Mobile will be fully integrated into Motorola and then will cease to exist as a separate and distinct entity. Thia practically makes Motorola THE Lenovo smartphone company, except perhaps for the existence of ZUK. This is in line with Lenovo's plan to let Motorola handle more and more of its mobile operations.

DROID MAXX 2 details leaked in photos

This morning the DROID MAXX 2, also known as the Moto X Play internationally, has appeared in a few leaked photos. This device is also known as the Motorola XT1565, the code for the base of the device that'll be released with different names in different regions. This DROID MAXX 2 for Verizon Wireless will be the only Moto X Play we'll see here in the United States, while the Moto X Style will be released separately, and with more than one carrier.

Moto X Play as DROID Maxx 2, Moto X Style as DROID Turbo 2

Moto X Play as DROID Maxx 2, Moto X Style as DROID Turbo 2

"A rose by any other name" or so the quote goes. It seems that when Motorola says a device is exclusive to one country or isn't coming to another country, it shouldn't be taken too literally. Or in this case, nominally. While the Moto X Play was noted to be unavailable in the US, it might actually just go by another name, the DROID Maxx 2. The Moto X Style, on the other hand, which will be the unlocked Moto X Pure Edition in the US, will take on the DROID Turbo 2 name under Verizon.
