Motorola planning to release super low-budget smartphones

San Francisco, CA, United States (4E) – If you think Motorola’s Moto G is affordable, you can expect the company to come out with even cheaper smartphones in the future.

“We’re going to look at that and just delivering on that value promise is super important. I mean why can’t these devices be $50? There’s no reason that can’t happen so we’re going to push that,” Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside said in an interview with TrustedReviews.

The Moto G currently costs $179 and boasts a 4.5-inch screen, 8GB storage, 1.2 quad-core processor, and 5-megapixel camera.

If Motorola was to release a super budget smartphone, it would target emerging markets. When it comes to budget smartphones, Motorola won’t be alone in that category. Nokia offers a line of budget smartphones called Asha. Samsung has affordable Galaxy smartphones.

Woodside also talked about the company’s premium smartphones and the high level of customization and options it brings. Motorola also has plans to innovate high-end smartphones.

“On the more premium side we’re pushing more customisation. Today you have colours and beginning of materials but you don’t have screen size and you don’t have functionality and we’re going to bring all that in in the next year or so,” Woodside added.
