Late last month, Motorola announced new models to its mid-range and flagship smartphone lines with the introduction of the third generation Moto G and third generation Moto X. However, the company also announced a third model, the Moto X Play, which sported a honkin’ 3630 mAh battery. The only problem is that the Moto X Play wasn’t destined for U.S. customers, leaving Motorola fans that crave long-lasting battery life the cold shoulder — or so we thought. Just as the global Moto X Style is known to the U.S. market as the Moto X Pure, the Moto X Play will arrive stateside under a new name: the DROID... Read more...
Keep those smartphone cameras ready because you never know what you'll encounter when out and about. Lucky for us, smartphones are fairly ubiquitous these days, making it possible for two different people to take snapshots of what appear to be Motorola's second generation Moto 360 smartwatch out in the wild. One of the photos was taken by a Reddit user (ThatGuyWhoRuinedIt) near a convenience store in Chicago, the city where Motorola's U.S. headquarters exists. Unfortunately he was late for a meeting when he spotted the wearable, so he didn't have time to approach the person and ask questions about... Read more...
It looks as though we may be inching even closer to a reveal date for Motorola’s second generation Moto 360 smartwatch. The first generation model took the Android Wear market by storm with its eye-catching round display and quickly went on to become a best-seller. Motorola is looking for another hit, but does it have the right recipe for success this time around? Motorola at least looks to be taking an approach championed by Apple with Apple Watch: two different sizes. Apple quickly identified that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t always work when it comes to smartwatches, and that men and... Read more...
Will they or won’t they continue on with the 'flat tire' display? That’s been the big question surrounding Motorola’s next generation Moto 360 smartwatch. Today, we finally learn the answer to the question, and unfortunately, it looks as though Motorola still hasn’t clear to incorporate a completely circular display like LG, Huawei and now Samsung into a smartwatch. In an incredibly short video posted to Motorola’s official Twitter account (the tweet has since been taken down), we see a fleeting glimpse of the next generation Moto 360. As you can clearly see, there is still a cutout at the bottom... Read more...
The PC market has been limping along for years and the lackluster sales have taken a toll on Lenovo, which announced today that it is planning to lay off as many as 3,200 employees. The company simultaneously announced plans to restructure its Mobile Business Group (MBG), which includes Motorola, in an effort to improve its smartphone development. Lenovo Chairman and CEO Yuanqing Yang announced the job cuts today in an email to employees. The cuts are meant to help Lenovo reach its goal of 30 percent market share in the PC market. (Lenovo estimates that is has about 20.6 percent of the market now.)... Read more...
Smartphones weren’t the only topic of discussion at Motorola’s mobile event this morning; the consumer electronics company also unveiled two new wireless headphones at affordable price points. First up is the Moto Pulse, which are lightweight on-ear Bluetooth 4.1 headphones that provide up to 18 hours of runtime per charge (the headphones are charged via a microUSB port). The headphones have 40mm speaker drivers, a 60-foot range of operation (Motorola says this is twice the range of competing products), feature a built-in mic (for hands-free calls) and is compatible with a wide range of Android...

OK, so Motorola didn’t launch a second generation Moto 360 smartwatch today as we expected, but what the company did unveil is still likely to amaze you. The Lenovo-owned company today launched three new Android smartphones and as you’ll see, they strike a fine balance between performance, features, and affordability. First up is the range-topping Moto X Style, which inherits the torch that was proudly carried by its similarly-styled predecessors. Front in center, of course, is a large 5.7-inch QHD (2560x1440) TFT LCD display (that’s right, there’s no AMOLED this time around), which is covered... Read more...
It almost seems impossible nowadays for a company to keep a product under wraps until it's officially meant to be unveiled, and one recent example is with Motorola's third-gen Moto G. While we learned last week about its expected specs, the company itself leaked even more information, all revolving around customization. As a recap, the third-gen Moto G will sport a 1080p display, a Snapdragon 610 SoC, and a sweet boost to 2GB of RAM. While 8GB will be the default storage option, users will be able to expand it up to 128GB with the use of a microSD card. On its own website, Motorola has revealed... Read more...

Motorola has something big planned for July 28th. It’s expected that the company, now under the wing of Lenovo, will launch a third generation Moto X, the third generation Moto G, and the second generation Moto 360 smartwatch. Unfortunately for Motorola, at least one of its upcoming stars, the Moto G, has been leaking a bit over the past few weeks. The Moto G sprung another leak today as Swiss retailer Digitec claims to have secured renders and specifications for for Motorola’s next mid-range smartphone. For starters, the renders lineup up perfect with what we seen in previous leaks, and shows... Read more...

While it’s not quite the smoking deal from early last month (a deal which in hindsight was a price mistake), Best Buy is currently trimming $100 from all models of the Motorola Moto 360. The attractive Moto 360 is by far the best-selling Android Wear smartwatch on the market and recently received an update that adds Wi-Fi capabilities, among other things. The $100 discount means that the stainless steel/leather band, stainless steel/stainless steel band, and gold/gold band Moto 360 smartwatches can be had for $149.99, $199.99, and $229.99, respectively. We should also note that Amazon has also... Read more...
Owners of the first-gen Moto X who've been salivating for a taste of the super sweet Android 'Lollipop' have no doubt been a frustrated in recent months given the lack of concrete updates. This is made worse by the fact that the OS has been hitting many other devices. Even the lowly Moto G was treated to Lollipop a couple of months ago, or even as far back as November if we're talking unlocked devices. Well, a new Google+ post made by Motorola's David Schuster gives Moto X owners some new hope: Lollipop could land in a couple of weeks. Pardon the pun, but Schuster doesn't sugar coat what's been...

An already smoking hot deal just got even better (and will probably have people who bought a Motorola Moto 360 within the past three or four days bang their heads against the wall). On Friday, we brought you the news that both Amazon and Best Buy have slashed the price of the Moto 360 from $249.99 to an unbelievable $179.99. However, Best Buy is concurrently running another promotion that gives you $100 off a Motorola 360 if you purchase ANY Android smartphone. What makes this deal even more remarkable is that this second promotion is even applicable to prepaid Android smartphones. So you can purchase... Read more...
