Motorola move back to the Chinese market with Moto X, Moto G and a de-Nexusized Nexus 6

Motorola – now owned by Lenovo – is heading back to the Chinese market with some rebranded devices. We are talking about the Moto G LTE, Moto X and a slightly different Nexus 6 renamed Moto X Pro. The Moto X is the first to go live in February and, it appears that, among the changes the Chinese market will be getting is less of the Moto Maker customization system. The device will be available in more than one style, and potential customers can vote for them on the Motorola website starting tomorrow at 10 AM Beijing time.     The second-gen Moto G LTE will go on sale in late February, after the Spring Festival, which coincides with the Chinese New Year. The third device that goes on the Chinese market is a de-Nexusized Nexus 6 because it has the same constitution as the current Google flagship. It has a 6” QHD screen with a powerful Snapdragon 805, 3 GB of RAM and a 3220 mAh battery. The only differences will be a more Android-esque OS and the lack of branding. The devices will be on sale in China after the Chinese New Year. Source: Motorola

Google Play Store stops selling Nexus 5 Red and White versions – Black is still available

If you want a cheap and sturdy handset and you hope for the best Android experience, you have to get your own Nexus 5 while you still can, because Google just stopped sales of its Nexus 5 red and white flavors. All you can get now is the black version, and even that has a closing expiration date. You can no longer get the two more colorful Nexus versions on Play Store, and even stores are low on stock and you will not be able to get new ones once these run out.       Do not fret, as you can still get the more somber black Nexus 5 version (but you’ll need to hurry, Google announced last month that they would stop producing the 5 series altogether) in 16 or 32 GB version. You will be paying $350 or $399, depending on the version you get, but it’s still a good price for a stable, clean and updated device, considering you will be getting Android Lollipop too, unlike many other devices from other lines.   On another note, if you wanted a brand new Nexus 6, you will still have to wait as the device is all out of stock at the moment.

Sony Xperia Z3V arrives on the US market exclusively on Verizon

Sony Xperia Z3V is finally announced for Verizon and it appears it’s the same Z3 with a Verizon twist. The flagship is not fresh news for the world, but for the US market it’s close to a new entry as, usually, Sony does not give attention to the American continent when it comes to sales.     It appears though that the Xperia Z3V gets the same hardware specs as the specs found in the international variant. You will get the following: 5.2” 1080p LCD display with TRILUMINOUS technology 2.5 GHz quad-core processor 32 GB internal storage plus microSD card 20.7 MP camera with 4K video features 3200 mAh battery with built-in Wireless Charging support IP65 and IP68 durability Android KitKat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oevRDwKJbKE   It appears that Sony Xperia Z3V’s battery holds on for 3 days based on tests and it also has that helpful Qi wireless charging. The handset goes on sale October 23rd at the price of $199.99 with a new contract, but can be purchased based on Edge payment plans as well. Source: Verizon   [wdsm_ad id=”1484″ class=” ” ]
