If you recall, last month, there were reports that Motorola is planning to ditch its Moto X lineup in favor of a new ‘Moto Z’ branding. While the company did unveil a couple of Z series phones this week (Moto Z shown below), it has now confirmed that Moto X phones aren’t dead.
Here is the full statement from Motorola:
Moto X is alive and well. In fact, Moto X Force recently launched in multiple new markets around the world. Moto X and Moto Z do share some great qualities, but they ultimately provide different experiences and make our portfolio more robust for consumers looking for the perfect smartphone to fit their needs. Tech-hungry consumers who are looking to get a brand new set of experiences from their smartphone will turn to Moto Z and Moto Mods.
What’s worth noting here is that while the statement does make it clear that the company will continue selling existing Moto X phones, it doesn’t explicitly say whether or not we’ll see new phones in the line-up.
