At the CES 2016, Lenovo has officially declared the end of Motorola as a brand name in the smartphone business. Although the news may make some of us feel a tinge of sadness as the name "Motorola" itself is iconic as well as nostalgic for many of us, the decision wasn't exactly a surprise. Lenovo bought the company from Google back in 2014 with the hopes of gaining a firm foothold in the mobile phone industry by using Motorola's popularity.


Lenovo further stated that the Motorola team will still be making phones, but the branding will change to Lenovo instead. However, the famous "M" logo is not going away. We think that this decision of keeping the logo even after doing away with the brand name was made so as to win over the loyal fan base that Motorola has been supported by, over the years.


Back in 2005, Motorola was the biggest name in the phone business and everyone wanted a Moto Razr V3. The company lost ground since, as Samsung and Apple muscled in with Android and iOS respectively. After falling from a great height, the ownership of the company changed hands multiple times and finally at Lenovo, it seems that the struggling brand name is coming to an end.

 



Motorola is getting ready for Cyber Monday and like the other players in the tech world, showing the details of deals on the website is quite useful. Currently there are three deals listed on the website and hopefully we can expect to see additional deals in the coming Monday.


To start off, the price of Moto X (2nd Gen) 64GB has been slashed by 25% to bring down the final cost to $299 from $399. You can avail this deal from within the Moto Maker, where it lets you customize the device to your preference. Hence, the price might go up depending on the level of customizations.


Motorola will also give the Moto 360 (1st Gen) at 50% discount, bringing its price down from $299 to $149. Please take a note that this model is the 1st Gen, and at Amazon, you can purchase this device with variety of models to choose from starting at about $140.


We'll say, this deal is not so enticing and definitely doesn't stand out in Cyber Monday history. Finally, those looking to own a Moto G (2nd Gen) can get one for just $99, brought down from $179.99. That's more than 40% discount on the price listed for the phone. Then again, this is the 2nd Gen model, not the 3rd Gen which can bought from Amazon for $170.

Motorola announced today that will be releasing Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for Moto X Style in India. The new update will have feature improvements of the latest OS like doze mode, app standby, expandable storage, do not disturb, now on tap, direct share and more.


This update is tweaked for Moto users. For example - as Marshmallow has the Do not disturb setting and data backup, Motorola has took away the Moto Assist and Moto Migrate features from the phone. They're also getting rid of the Google Chrome extension from Motorola Connect. Motorola says that as people have moved beyond SMS and to other OTT messaging apps, they see no requirement to continue with the app and this will free up some space in the device.


As per Motorola, users should make sure that the battery is at least 50 percent charged and the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network while installing the update. It is expected that there will also be some changes to the Moto Enhancement features with the Android M update as well.


As the update is getting shipped in phases, don't panic in case you haven't got the notification till now. The Moto X Pure Edition should also start receiving the update within the next few weeks.

The new renders show two slightly different size variants of the next-gent Moto 360. As previously reported, the larger model could be called Moto 360L (or Moto 360 2 L), while the smaller one might be dubbed Moto 360S (or Moto 360 S). It's said that the former has a 375 mAh battery, while the latter comes with a 270 mAh one. Both may offer displays with resolutions of 360 x 360 pixels. For now, we don't know anything else about the two new smartwatches.

Moto 360 2nd generation

 

Motorola is definitely working on a successor to its last year's Moto 360 rounded smartwatch. The new wearable may even be offered in two different sizes, just like what Apple did. Today a few images have been leaked showing the new model in the wild, on people's wrists actually.

 

Although it bears quite a resemblance to its predecessor, including that 'flat tire' for the screen, this is the next generation Moto 360 and you can tell because of the position of its button. On the original this was placed at the 3 o'clock mark, while this time around Motorola's moved it to 2 o'clock for whatever reason.

These shots allegedly come from around Chicago, an area in which Motorola has its US headquarters. So these may be company employees testing the device.

As before, it looks like Motorola will bet big on customization. These pictures show two different versions of the 360, an all-black one with leather strap, and another with a Rose Gold casing and Cognac band.
