Motorola will re-enter the Chinese market with a new smartphone, the Moto X Pro

We’re not going to see new hardware sprout up from Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola anytime soon, but at least Motorola can piggyback on Lenovo’s status overseas to get its business booming.

Motorola is going back to the Chinese market in style with the Moto X Pro, a 6-inch smartphone with a Quad HD display, 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805, front-facing stereo speakers, a 13-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 3,220 mAh battery pack. It’s basically the Nexus 6, though it will run pure Android without Google’s location services given that Google many of Google's services are banned in China.

The countdown for the official page for Motorola in China, which will fully launch next month. 

The Moto X Pro, along with the Moto X, Moto G, and China’s own Moto Maker, will officially launch early next month. 

The story behind the story: Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola isn’t just about devices. Lenovo will use Motorola to kickstart its smartphone entry into the U.S., while Motorola will use Lenovo’s influence overseas to tap into markets it hasn’t been successful in penetrating just yet.

Launching three tiers of devices in the Chinese market will be a whopper of a move for Motorola, too, as the size of the Chinese market will likely do wonders for Motorola’s global marketshare.
