Motorola Sells 10M Handsets During Last Quarter, a Company Record

Setting a company record, Motorola sold over 10 million handsets last quarter, equalling a 118% increase year-over-year, according to Lenovo’s latest earnings report. While it would be nice to give credit to the company’s flagship, the Moto X here in the US, that would likely be naive.

Moto’s mid-range game has been boosted thanks to the Moto G and Moto E, both of which appear to be doing very well among budget-minded buyers and overseas in Asia and in South America. In a earnings report, Lenovo only sees Motorola going up, as the company is now set to re-enter the Chinese smartphone market, headlined by the Moto X Pro.¬†

Lenovo feels that Motorola’s brand power in the US is what will help separate¬†itself from other Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi and Huawei. Not only does Lenovo intend to maintain Motorola’s role as a global smartphone player, but also plans to heavily emulate Xiaomi’s Internet distribution model, according to Reuters.

2015 should be a big year for Motorola.
