Everything you wanted to know about Motorola returning to Russia

    We waited so long, but now we can finally write it: Motorola returned to Russia, cheers! And now is the time to answer all those many questions that you probably would like to ask us with one long list. Under the cut, we tried to clarify the most important details, but if suddenly something was left out, then we are waiting for you in the comments.



    Will Motorola smartphones really begin to be sold in Russia in February, as promised a couple of posts earlier?


    We made a little mistake with the forecast. In Russia, Moto smartphones will begin to be sold exactly March 1.

    Is Moto the new official brand name?


    Exactly. And even a little more - now this is a separate product line of Lenovo smartphones. As a result, we have two such lines: Lenovo Vibe and Lenovo Moto.

    Wait a minute! So what should I look for in stores if I want a Motorola smartphone?


    March 1, just look for Moto smartphones, but those new products that will be presented at the MWC-2016 in Barcelona and then get to Russia will already have the full name: Lenovo Moto.

    And where to look?


    In the salons "Megaphone", "Messenger" and "Euroset". In the future, the list of partners will certainly expand.

    And what about the online store shop.lenovo.ru ? Planning to sell Moto smartphones there?


    We plan, but it will happen a bit later.

    What kind of Moto devices can I buy in Russia on March 1?


    At the start of sales, we will have four devices.

    Moto G is a mid-range smartphone with the possibility of customization through the use of interchangeable back covers. In stores, Moto G will be sold in black and white, but two color panels are included. In both cases, they are different. Plus there is IPX7 protection. We are talking about the half-hour stay of the gadget under water at a depth of 1 meter.

    An exciting question: what will the prices be?


    The cost of Moto G will be 16 990 rubles, Moto X Play - 29 990 rubles, Moto X Style - 39 990 rubles, and the flagship Moto X Force will cost 49 990 rubles.

    Will Moto G, Moto X Force and Moto Style get updates to Android 6.0?


    We can say with confidence that this will definitely happen. At least simply because active work on updates is already underway, but we are at a loss to give exact dates.

    Will the Moto Maker online service work in Russia, allowing users to order a customized smartphone?


    In the form in which Moto Maker exists abroad, it will not be implemented with us. However, we plan to offer some of the options for customization presented in it in Russia. Not from March 1, but in the very near future.

    Will the Moto 360 also go on sale on March 1?


    No, they will come a bit later. When everything is finally clarified with the deadlines, we will definitely announce the start date of sales in advance.

    I plan to buy a Moto smartphone in March, but worry about the warranty. Have you already established work on the part of service support?


    Of course, we did it a very long time ago. At the service of all buyers of Moto smartphones from official deliveries, the entire Lenovo service network.

    That's probably all for now. But we are sure that there are still questions - do not hesitate to ask them in the comments. Thank you so much for your attention!
