Motorola Smartphones to Make an Official Comeback in Pakistan

Motorola is a famed mobile phone brand in Pakistan and I am sure everyone has heard the name before. I still remember the first ever mobile phone I have seen was a Motorola phone.

Some years back Motorola phones used to sell like hot cakes in Pakistan. But then the smartphone revolution came and Motorola got pushed out of the competition.

It did made a comeback when Google bought it, but still the brand is struggling to get a decent market share and its focusing more on the US and European markets.

A couple of months ago Lenovo, the Chinese smartphone maker and the current owner of Motorola announced to sell all future phones under Motorola’s brand name.

Hello Moto (Again):

Now a recent report from MoreMag, citing inside sources claims Motorola is going to make an official comeback in Pakistan’s market.

Lenovo and its partners in Pakistan, namely M&P and GreenTech along with TechSirat are readying to launch three top of the line Motorola phones in February. Some sources also suggest that Tech Sirat would be the sole distributor for Karachi region.

The devices to be launched include the acclaimed Moto Z, Moto Z Play and the more affordable Moto M smartphone.
