As solid as Motorola’s phones have been the past few years, they haven’t always been particularly exciting. Most opt to scratch the surface of what it means to be a high-end smartphone, though they don’t often opt set any bars.
But Lenovo could be looking to change that. Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, Yuanqing Yang — Lenovo’s CEO — revealed that the next phone in the “Moto” brand (remember, they’re dropping “Motorola”) will be a “more innovative, more attractive” device.
Of course, we get little in the way of details as to what exactly that means, but it sounds like Lenovo wants to reach for more “firsts” in the launches to come. The shatterproof displays on the DROID Turbo 2 and Moto X Force were a nice start, of course, but it’s quite nice to hear that Lenovo thinks they can go even further. The “attractive” bit is even more interesting as Motorola already makes some good looking devices, and even gives us the ability to have those devices look exactly the way we want to.
We wouldn’t blame you if you aren’t confident in Lenovo’s ability to keep the Moto brand going the way Motorola did back in the fonder days, but there’s no reason to completely write them off before they’ve even had a chance to show what they can do. We’ll gladly give them that chance.
