Motorola acquired by Lenovo is in plans to introduce affordable 4G smartphones in India in early 2015. This information has been confirmed by Motorola Mobility Head, Rick Osterloh to The Economic Times and he added that the manufacturer is pretty aggressive to become one of the three largest smartphone makers in the country by the end of next year.
Well, Motorola will be introducing a 4G smartphone next that is a value for money offering as the firm is aiming to explore the 4G market providing a value proposition for its consumers.
Lately, there were claims that Motorola is prepping the successor of its entry level smartphone, Moto E. Earlier this week, the device’s alleged specifications were leaked and it was tipped that the Moto E2 would support 4G connectivity, Snapdragon 400 SoC, 5 MP main camera, 1 GB of RAM and Android 5.0 Lollipop platform. Though we do not have an idea of those devices that the vendor will be launching to explore 4G, the next generation Moto E could be one of them.
According to the IDC report, Motorola is the fifth largest smartphone manufacturer in India with a market share of 5 percent. After acquisition by Lenovo, the firm is the third largest on the global scale. Notably, Motorola has been facing a tough competition from Xiaomi, but the Chinese vendor has been banned from selling its offerings in India due to patent infringement with Ericsson.
