New Motorola and Lenovo smartphones coming to South Africa

Lenovo is bringing the latest Lenovo and Motorola smartphones to South Africa before the end of 2016. This is according to Graham Braum, MD of Lenovo Africa.

Braum told MyBroadband that Lenovo has migrated from focussing on only being the leader in PC market, to focussing on the smartphone market after the acquisition of Motorola.

“Lenovo has a very strong heritage of device innovation, and now is able to offer the various markets from wearables, PCs, to high-end server architecture,” said Braum.

He said Lenovo recently revealed the Moto Mods ecosystem with their new Moto Z family of smartphones.

“There are extremely exciting times ahead for Lenovo in the smartphone category and we are looking at bringing this technology to South Africa before the end of 2016.”

While he did not detail which phones South Africa would get, World Wide Worx MD Arthur Goldstuck revealed that the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro will be launched locally.

“We are looking at the different price points to find the sweet spot. The Moto is aimed at people who are looking for a premium smartphone but want something new or different,” said Lenovo’s Oliver Ebel.
