Motorola Defy rugged phone made by Bullitt

Motorola Defy rugged phone made by  Bullitt

Motorola's smartphone range is admittedly diverse, seemingly aimed at so many markets that it defies definition. One class of phones, represented by the DROID and Force models, is designed specifically to weather the forces of nature and human fallibility. The latest incarnation of that rugged spirit is the unusually-named Motorola Defy, perhaps one of the first fruits of Motorola's new partnership with the Bullitt Group, the same people behind CAT's and Land Rover's equally rugged phones.

Moto G Stylus 5G is coming to the US next week

Moto G Stylus 5G is coming to the US next week

Motorola has been flooding the market with affordable Moto G and Moto E phones but not all of them make it to all markets, especially the US. Earlier this year, Motorola expanded its lineup with the latest version of its stylus-toting Moto G Stylus which generated some confusion because of earlier leaks. It turns out that the company did have a slightly better version of that phone in the works and it's coming out as the Moto G Stylus 5G, exclusively for the US this time.

Moto G Stylus 2021 5G might be coming to the US

When rumors about Motorola's smartphone lineup for early 2021 started this year, there was a slight bit of confusion regarding its stylus-toting model. The Moto G Stylus that was first leaked and which looked more interesting never came to pass and was later rumored to launch under a different name. It turns out that there may have been some truth to this and the very same Moto G Stylus 2021 will be coming exclusively to the US with 5G capabilities.

Motorola OTA wireless charging might be available soon

Motorola OTA wireless charging might be available soon

Wireless charging may be saving us from tripping over cables but they don't exactly keep our phones untethered completely. It's not really easy to use our phones while on their wireless charging docks and you often need to position the devices precisely on top of the hidden charging coils. The ideal wireless charging solution is, of course, one that is completely invisible and intangible, and Motorola's partnership with OTA power company GuRu could bring that to reality soon.

Moto G50 lands on mid-tier range with 5G in tow

Moto G50 lands on mid-tier range with 5G in tow

Motorola just announced the Moto G100 and, just like it boasted recently, it brought Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8-series to a phone series that's better known for mid-range specs and prices. The Moto G100 definitely still fits the price range but it might still be a bit too high for some Moto G fans. Fortunately, Motorola did have other new phones to reveal and the Moto G50 even comes with some pretty tempting specs to boot.

Moto G100 gives affordable Android the Snapdragon 870 5G and a slick new dock

Moto G100 gives affordable Android the Snapdragon 870 5G and a slick new dock

Motorola's G Series is best known for its affordable price tags, but the new Moto G100 still somehow manages to introduce a Snapdragon 8xx-Series chipset to the budget-minded line. That's courtesy of the recently-announced Snapdragon 870 5G, Qualcomm's more affordable counterpoint to the flagship Snapdragon 888, which in this case helps keep the G100 down to around $580.

Verizon Motorola Edge+ update brings Android 11 to a bigger screen

An update to the Motorola Edge+ with Verizon added a collection of features along with Android 11.

Motorola Wear OS smartwatch could run on Snapdragon Wear 4100

Motorola Wear OS smartwatch could run on Snapdragon Wear 4100

There was quite a buzz recently about Motorola launching three new smartwatches this year after being absent in that market for so long. Granted, it is more likely to be made by a different manufacturer that simply licensed the Moto trademark but, for buyers, the distinction is unlikely to make a difference. That, however, might not actually be the end of the story as there might be a possibility that Motorola (or licensee eBuyNow) may have a fourth one in the works with a rather tempting spec.

Moto G, Moto Watch, Moto One smartwatches coming this year

Moto G, Moto Watch, Moto One smartwatches coming this year

Although it almost sounds like something from the distant past, Motorola has actually been an important part of the mobile industry's history that goes beyond just smartphones. Despite its much-ridiculed "flat tire" design, the Moto 360 was the first smartwatch to dare to have a circular body instead of the easier square chassis. Like other smartphone makers, Motorola stepped back from making wearables but it seems it is now coming back with not one but three smartwatches this year.

Google Fi adds more mid-range Motorola phones to its team

Google Fi adds more mid-range Motorola phones to its team

Google would have probably preferred if its users went all-in on its Internet services, mobile network, and phones but it knows it doesn't always get all three. Even those subscribed to its Google Fi service might not be big fans of Google's own Pixel handsets. To be a decent carrier, Google Fi has to offer a few more phones from other brands and it is now expanding its Motorola offering with three new mid-range handsets for every need and budget.

Moto G30 and Moto G10 announced as new mid-range options

Moto G30 and Moto G10 announced as new mid-range options

Motorola is probably the new Nokia, although HMD Global is definitely catching up to the number of nearly indistinguishable handsets it launches in the market. Under the Moto G brand, Motorola has been putting out phone after phone after phone, promising premium features at accessible prices. Motorola is announcing in Europe not one but two such phones, including a Moto G10 that, unfortunately, pales in comparison to what was previously leaked as the more premium "no".

Motorola teams up with CAT phone maker Bullitt for a rugged lineup

Motorola teams up with CAT phone maker Bullitt for a rugged lineup

At this point, Motorola's strategy in the smartphone market seems to be best described as "throw everything at a wall and see which sticks." Its phones are all over the place, from an expensive foldable to a handful of mid-range phones to budget-friendly entry-level handsets. As if that weren't enough, Motorola has entered into a partnership that will create yet another line of Motorola phones that might not actually bear Motorola's DNA inside.
