Aymar de Lencquesaing who served as the president of the Lenovo-owned Motorola has left the firm. It has been officially announced that Sergio Buniac will be taking over as the new Chairman and President. The company also confirmed that its first phones will be unveiled next month.
Buniac has been working with Motorola for 22 years and he was recently appointed as the Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Latin America wing. The recent years have been quite challenging for the company. In 2012, Google had acquired Motorola’s consumer phone business and two years later it was taken over by Lenovo.
Earlier in this month, Motorola had reportedly laid off a large number of employees from its Chicago. Motorola had reportedly invested $200 million in the advertising of the Moto Z2 Force. However, a report from November last year had claimed that a dismal number of 145,000 units of the Z2 Force were sold by the top four carriers in the U.S. The Motorola handsets have received lukewarm response in China. Hence, the company has reportedly resurrected the Lenovo smartphone brand by introducing the newly announced Lenovo S5 smartphone.
The press release that confirms Buniac as the new president also reveals that the company will be launching its new products in the coming month. Recent reports have revealed plenty of information about the Moto E5, E5 Plus and E5 Play that includes and the Moto G6 Series that comprises of Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play.
The Moto E5 and G6 series have been recently certified in Indonesia. The Moto G6 has been spotted at China’s TENAA authority. whereas the Moto G6 Plus has been spotted at Taiwan’s NCC regulatory body. Since the company has confirmed it will be launching its “first products” in April, it is likely that the company may unveil the Moto E5 and Moto G6 series in the same month.
