Moto Maker now available in China

Almost a year after Motorola launched the Moto Maker in Germany, the company has finally made available the web customization service in China. This is the second country outside of the United States to allow consumers to personalize their own Moto X online . This means more people, probably millions of them Chinese, can have smartphones that are unique, attractive, and one-of-a-kind from Motorola.

Chinese mobile market reportedly slowing down as per new IDC report

For the first time in six years, the supposedly emerging mobile market in China is showing signs of slowing down as the year over year figures show it has contracted 4% in the first quarter of 2015,, according to a the Mobile Phone Tracker report from the IDC. Of course it isn't time yet to panic, especially for those who have invested in this market, but it just goes to show that they are nearing saturation point, and so the focus has to somehow change.

Qualcomm to help market Chinese smartphones globally

Because of the changes in the relationship of Samsung and Qualcomm, the latter is determined to make it bigger in the industry by helping to market other smartphones especially those made in China. As you all know, Samsung has ditched the overheating Snapdragon 810 by the chip maker and didn't use it on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The South Korean tech giant used its own Exynos chip instead and the result was a super fast performance and a big loss for Qualcomm.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 spotted at TENAA

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A was quietly launched in Russia last month and soon, another 9.7-inch version was announced in Germany which will be available this coming May. The German Galaxy Tab A will be out in two variants: WiFi and LTE. True enough, the Chinese version of the Tab A was also spotted in two forms. Tablet was recently approved by TENAA, the Chinese FCC, which means the device will be out in the Chinese market very soon. However, China isn't getting a 9.7-incher but rather the 8-inch version according to the certification sighted.

HTC One M9+ pairs a 2K display with a MediaTek chip

HTC has indeed finally revealed the One M9+, the symbol, not the word, and so far all of the leaks and tips have been pretty much spot on, leaving nothing to the imagination. Perhaps except for one rather surprising item. The One M9+ would have almost trumped the One M9 in almost all aspects save one. The processor. Perhaps to keep costs down after plugging in higher end components, HTC has chosen to go with MediaTek here instead of the Qualcomm that runs the One M9 flagship.

Motorola out to stake claim in China’s mobile market with Moto X

China continues to be a market that all OEMs aim to conquer, being the most populous nation in the world and a rising middle class that is eager to spend on gadgets and mobile devices. Motorola, which was purchased by Chinese OEM Lenovo from Google, announced that their flagship Moto X will be available for pre-order in China starting last week, and already there are one million people who signed up to get their hands on the smartphone.

Meizu unveils Meilan m1, new m1 Note variant, LifeKit platform

Meizu made quite a splash yesterday when it unveiled not one but three new products. Well, two and a half to be precise, as one is just a different variant. That variant is the new Meilan m1 Note for China Telecom, this time bearing a Snapdragon 615 instead of a MediaTek. Completely new, however, is its smaller sibling, the Meilan m1, with a 5-inch screen instead of the larger 5.5. And last but not the least, Meizu is expanding into your homes with a new LifeKit platform for smart appliances.

Motorola comes back to China

We already know that Motorola has officially returned to China. The company brings new smartphones and wearable choices to the emerging market. All these are happening because Lenovo's purchase of Motorola has been finally completed three months ago. This also means consumers in China have more choices now when it comes to smartphones (not that there aren't enough choices available...). Motorola is bringing the following models to China: Moto Hint (wearable), Moto G, Moto X Pro, and the Moto X.

Xiaomi Mi Note puts high-end flagships on notice

Xiaomi is starting 2015 with a bang. Trying once again to disrupt the smartphone market, the Chinese OEM has unveiled the Mi Note and its even higher end Mi Note Pro sibling, sporting a combination some of the best hardware and features you're likely to see in recent and upcoming flagships. And of course, in the usual Xiaomi way, these sell lower than your usual flagship from your usual giant OEMs, though the rising numbers do seem to point to a general and rather worrying trend in smartphone prices.

Motorola returns to China with new Moto handsets
