Lenovo has officially announced that Motorola handsets – including the Moto Z and Moto E3 Power – will arrive in South Africa before the end of the year.
If you hanker for the days of the slim Motorola RAZR, we’ve got some good news for you; Lenovo Africa has officially announced that the brand behind the modular Moto Z will return to South Africa before the end of the year.
Motorola will reportedly introduce two new handsets to the South African market this November; including the flagship Moto Z as well as the mid-range Moto E3 Power. Read: Motorola to bring “˜shatterproof‘ technology to 2016 flagships
Lenovo Africa revealed on its official Facebook page that Moto handsets will make an imminent return to the South African market, which followed a teaser image posted on the 14th of October.
Motorola was last present in South Africa in 2012, whereafter the firm exited the country following its acquisition by Google, after which it was then sold to Lenovo.
Under Lenovo, the Moto brand has once again risen to prevalence; while Google employed the marque to produce its Nexus handsets of yore, Lenovo has seen fit to release the flagship Moto Z and Moto Z Force this year; both of which come with clip-on accessories dubbed Moto Mods.
As with the LG G5’s Friends, Moto Mods offer modular, additional functionality that can be attached to the phone by clipping on a replaceable back panel – the LG G5 instead made use of a slide-out battery tray. Read: Motorola unveils its new flagships, the modular Moto Z and Moto Z Force
