Motorola Hints at a Huge Launch in Pakistan

Motorola is planning an official entry into Pakistan, we have checked with sources. While the final lineup of smartphones to be launched locally is not yet finalized, we expect a current generation flagship device to be among the debut devices.

While we are unsure about the timeline, it is being said that Motorola has huge plans for Pakistani market during or around February.

Right now, Motorola has no presence in Pakistan in any form whether it’s through re-sellers or distribution channels so this is going to mark as Motorola’s official re-entry into Pakistan.

Despite becoming a niche among the masses, the brand still has more recognition than smaller players in the market. While they were famous for their RAZR slide phones, which were a status symbol in Pakistan back in the days, Motorola has now been relegated to used marketplaces.

It’s been a wild few years for Motorola. Back in 2011, Google bought the company for $12.5 billion. Failing to integrate it into its vision, it sold off the mobile division to Lenovo in 2014 for $2.91 billion while retaining the patent portfolio.

Despite some stumbles along the way and Lenovo admitting it underestimated the size of the task at hand at Motorola, it now has a clear vision of what it wants to do and Pakistan is in the roadmap.

They are not as popular as they once were but Motorola phones have often disrupted the market and are quite consistently well reviewed. Their mid range smartphones in particular are lauded for class leading camera performance. Moto Z, the current flagship by the company, uses innovative ‘mods’ which can be used as add-ons to boost camera performance, sound and battery life.

With the company planning to launch in Pakistan, the competition is heating up more than ever. You can check out the local site set up by Motorola

  • Yoh also reported Xiaomi’s official entry in Pakistan within 3 weeks. Still there is No sign of Xiaomi. Same will happen to Motorola.

  • موٹرولا اپنی آخری خواہش بھی پوری کر لے دل میں حسرت ہی نا رہ جائے ایچ ٹی سی کی طرح

      • Kyuin bhai tumhain kia uncle ney goud main bitha k token khilwaye hain bachpan main jo ab unhain aram ka mashwara de rahay ho?

  • I am using “Motorola Droid RAZR HD XT926 (32 GB)”. It is Excellent. I am waiting for more products from Motorola.

  • few problems
    people here only know Motorola by droid names, those droids are Verizon models ( specifically made to order for Verizon {pronounced just like horizon and not very zone)

    all the problems people face with droids, they will think it’s Motorola problems.
    droids versions are mostly never made to retail models though it’s changed in recent models, hope they don’t stop on just G4 line.

  • They are far better phones better than samsung and qmobile. If their kits can be sold in market for such high prices then no doubt they can easily capture market here. Just saw their recent flagship MotoZ in market which is sold around 30k here in Karachi and believe me that phone is totally amazing.

    • Exactly ^^ You are talking about moto z force I think. That is a beast phone actually. But lets see what will be the price of new one.

      • moto z is with not for sale hard printed on it.
        didn’t see z force though.
        some g4 plus are available too with pretty nice prices.

        • Yep that is printed but it’s on the front protector only I think. Nah my friend bought moto z force from techno city. It’s a very good phone in 30K price range.

          • nope it’s hard printed, meaning on body. 10 days back i didnt find any z force, only moto droid z. ( just in case z force is the thick one ? with better camera like turbo 2)

    • Can you guide about kits, what’s the deal with them? Why are they sold at so cheap prices despite being new and functioning phones?

      • They are test units which are only for testing purposes. Sometimes the “Not for Sale” tag hard coded on its body, but somehow they end up in Pakistan and are sold at cheap prices.

  • lol… funny how any post about phones are only received with ‘where is xiaomi’ in comment section???

  • Motorola phones used to be notorious for bad battery life. My first cell phone was a Motorola way back in 2001. Its battery life was awful. However, they have improved over the years. Many people in my family use Moto X and are very satisfied. A mint condition (used) piece can be bought from Sadar, Karachi for Rs. 8000 (16gb disk space and 2 gigs Ram). Excellent phone.
