When Motorola backed out of the Indian market in November 2012, no one thought that it would be able to make such a strong comeback. As per the latest reports from ABI Research, Motorola has managed to ship around 8.6 million smartphones in Q2 2014. This is a phenomenal growth even when compared to its sales in Q1 2014. Even though Moto X was like a breath of fresh air in the market with extreme customisable options, value for money smartphones like Moto G and Moto E are said to be the real reasons for this two fold growth in sales. Motorola managed to sell over a million Moto G smartphones in India through its exclusive sales partner; Flipkart. It managed to become a hit due to its build quality, well-rounded hardware specifications and a promise of faster Android updates.

Further, Motorola is expected to launch the successor to Moto G and Moto X; Moto G2 and Moto X+1 respectively. Also, Motorola is said to be working closely with Google to release their first Nexus smartphone, a phablet with 5.9-inch screen which is codenamed as ‘Shamu’. Recently, Motorola dropped the price of Moto G to compete with Asus Zenfone 5.

Computer science engineer turned technology blogger. Following consumer electronics industry closely from 2006, he can now predict pretty much where the market is heading. He has a dream to own Android, Windows Phone and iOS smartphones all at the same time.
