Great news for Motorola fans!
You will probably be stoked to find out that Motorola is planning on releasing a pretty impressive smartphone variety by the end of this year, so it seems like the Moto X manufacturer will have a pretty busy second half of 2014 in store for itself. The tech company plans on releasing eight devies by 2014’s Christmas, and the names featured on the upcoming Motorola invasion list are the Motorola DROID, DROID MAXX, DROID Turbo, Moto X+1, Moto G, Moto X Play, Moto S, and of course, let’s not forget that it’s Motorola’s time to shine as the manufacturer behind the new Nexus device from Google.
However, more or less good news continue to flow in the form of a report saying that the release date for each individual device is relative to that of the other smartphones on the list. As complicated as it may sound, it really isn’t. Bottom line is, the fate of one or more devices scheduled to be released by the end of the year strongly depends on how the others will perform. To give you an example, Motorola might drop the DROID Turbo if the Moto X+1 will end up being a success. On the same note, between the Moto X Play and the Moto S, only one will make it to the market, depending on which screen size users will most prefer. The Motorola Nexus will feature a 5.9 inch display no matter what the fate of the other models will be.
Continuing with reports of the Motorola mania that awaits users in the months to come, it seems like Motorola will no longer make its DROID line of smartphones and exclusivity for Verzion. In previous smartphone lineups, Verzion got exclusive sale of Motorola’s DROID devices. Reports suggest that the company is planning on releasing the DROID line for AT&T as well, but with a different branding. Rumors of a Star Wars-themed promotion are also flying around, probably to hype up the upcoming Star Wars movie.
Motorola also took the time to dismiss previous rumors regarding a device supposedly called the Motorola DROID Quantum, which according to rumors, was supposed to feature a 6.3 inch display, thus crossing into the phablet market. Motorola stated that the company has no current plans for releasing any smartphone with a display bigger than 6 inch, and they don’t see that happening in the near future.
So in the end, it seems like “Motorola” is a name you will constantly hear during the last months of 2014 if you keep yourself up-to-date regarding tech news and released. Even though out of the 8 devices promised, only 6 of them might actually make it on store shelves, it’s still quite the workload for Motorola, which plans to pose as a threat for all competitors in the closing hours of the year’s smartphone market.
