Now that its acquisition by Lenovo is complete, Motorola announced its return to China with three of the company’s latest smartphones: the Moto X, Moto X Pro, and Moto G with 4G LTE.
The most interesting of the three is the Moto X Pro, which seems like a repackaged Nexus 6, with its 5.9-inch Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440 pixel), and 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor. Everything you found on the Nexus 6, including the dual front-facing speakers and 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, is seemingly found on the Moto X Pro, which isn’t the Droid-branded smartphone we thought it could be. It will be available after China’s Spring Festival, which goes from February 19 through 25.
Other than the Moto X Pro, China will receive the Moto X and Moto G with 4G LTE, both of which are the 2014 variants. The Moto X features a 5.2-inch 1,920 x 1,080 pixel AMOLED display, 2GB of RAM, and a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor. The Moto G with 4G LTE, meanwhile, is the budget model of the three with a 5-inch 1,280 x 720 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor.
The Moto X will hit China in early February, while the Moto G with 4G LTE will be available sometime after Spring Festival. For those who opt for the Moto X, Motorola will give you a chance to vote on which colors and materials will be featured first, with custom-designed Moto Xs through Moto Maker available after Spring Festival.
