Lenovo intends to merge Lenovo and Motorola’s UI into one, to be unveiled by 2017.

This will anger many in the west as one of the best features in Motorola devices of recent years, is the implementation of a near stock Android experience. Well we say near, its pretty much stock Android with the exception of a Moto app. Lenovo’s Android UI does away with an app draw, a feature that isn’t particularly popular but again, it will be a combination of the UI so we could be seeing something better than both respective UIs.

Recently Lenovo announced they will cease the use of the Motorola brand, but will continue to use the name Moto. Products with the Moto name includes many popular handsets like the Moto X Force and Moto G series. Name isn’t the only thing Lenovo will be changing, in an interview with Tech Sina, senior vice president of Lenovo Chen Xudong confirmed some facts about Moto devices being released this year:

  • All Moto device will have a screen size of 5-inches minimum
  • Fingerprint sensors will be a staple feature
  • Moto devices will see a change in design to suit eastern and western consumers

If you want a stock Android Motorola device 2016 is the year to do it.
