The news that Motorola’s parent company Lenovo would kill off the Moto E and G, and other Motorola phones had many people upset and shocked. However, Motorola has said they only plan on thinning out the Motorola line-up.
Motorola specifically said that the previous rumours were misunderstood and that the Moto G and Moto E will be fine as they are the companies most sold smartphones.
“Although we are simplifying the combined Motorola and [Lenovo] portfolio, we have no plans to retire Moto G, our most successful smartphone, or Moto E,”
Thinking about it, it actually wouldn’t of made much sense for Motorola to kill off their most successful products. However, the reality is Motorola’s Moto line and Lenovo’s Vibe line will both be combining to streamline things, resulting in fewer phones overall.
However, Lenovo plan on using the Moto line to be more specifically geared towards North America, while the Vibe line targets China, India, and other developing countries. Their plan is to be able to have phones in all of these regions, but still make less phones.
