Yesterday Google announced that they had sold Motorola to Lenovo for $2.91 billion, and now we have some details on Lenovo’s future plans for smartphones and other devices.
According to a recent report, Motorola already has designed its 2015 line up of devices, and Lenovo has decided to release these new handsets and other devices in 2015.
As yet there are no details on any specific hardware for the 2015 range of devices from Motorola, although we can expect a follow up to the Moto X, possibly the Moto G, a new Android Phablet which is said to come with a 6 inch display, plus a Motorola smart watch.
The only thing that Lenovo may change with Motorola is some of the production may take place in China, alongside Motorola’s Fort Worth plant.
Lenovo has been looking to get into the US smartphone market for some time, and now with Motorola the company will be able to expand into the US and European smartphone markets.
Lenovo has a history of doing well with its acquisitions, its ThinkPad range of computers, which was purchased from IBM, has helped the company become one of the worlds largest PC makers.
If Lenovo is able to have similar success with Motorola, it could end up being of the worlds top smartphone makers like Samsung and Apple.
