First up, all the Moto-branded smartphones in 2016 will sport fingerprint sensors, a feature that was absent from the brand’s devices that were launched last year. It’s worth mentioning that some of the first devices to boast fingerprint sensors were launched by Motorola, but the company didn’t embrace the functionality for all its devices.

On top of that, the company would not launch any phone this year with a display sized smaller than 5-inches. As for the design, the upcoming Moto-branded phones will receive tweaks in design to better suit consumers from both eastern and western markets. Also, Lenovo and Moto’s user interfaces will be merged into a brand new UI that will be unveiled in 2017.

Following up on the brand’s recent announcement, Xudong further added that the Moto branding will be used for high-end devices, and the company’s Vibe series will target the budget smartphone segment.
