Motorola just said that moto X is alive and doing well!
Motorola reached to Android Police with a statement saying they are not killing its flagship line to replace it with moto Z. Instead, there might be two high end lines, one being the Z and the other one the X. It's interesting to read this news because it was rumored that they would replace the X with the new phones announced yesterday. Seems not! Here is what Motorola has to say:
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.
As you know, Moto X has been Motorola's flagship line for three years and has won the hearts of many. That won't change. While the moto Z will be a beautiful premium phone, moto X might continue to be the challenger for Android fans. HellomotoHK also said recently that there would be a moto X Style 2, so we have to wait and see what comes later this year.
There will be a moto 360 line, a moto E, moto G, moto X and moto Z, and also a Droid line. It's been a long time since Motorola released so many phones, so it will be interesting to see what the future brings!
