New Moto360 coming in December for $350, but it won't be made by Motorola

New Moto360 coming in December for $350, but it won't be made by Motorola

Of all the things we expected to come out of Lenovo's Motorola this year — mediocre modular phones, a flank of mid-rangers, and a foldable to behold — we did not think a new Wear OS smartwatch would be one. That said, we do have a 3rd-gen Moto360 (no space, as styled) to wait for, but it doesn't look to have been manufactured by Motorola.

Moto G8 Plus and One Macro hands-on: Versatile cameras and long battery life

Moto G8 Plus and One Macro hands-on: Versatile cameras and long battery life

Lenovo-owned Motorola has just unveiled three new phones and expanded the availability of the Motorola One Macro it launched earlier this month. The Moto G8 Plus and Moto G8 Play are the first of a new generation of mid-range G series phones, while the E6 Play is another entry into the ultra-budget segment. The two Play models are only launching in select Latin American countries, to begin with, but I’ve been able to spend some time with the other two phones.

Leaked Moto E6 Play press images reveal chunky bezels and micro-USB charging

Leaked Moto E6 Play press images reveal chunky bezels and micro-USB charging

Along with a multitude of other devices, Lenovo introduced the Moto E6 Plus during IFA in Berlin this year. Since Moto series usually consist of at least three devices each generation, it comes as no surprise that the company is also planning to release a Moto E6 Play. Press images have leaked today courtesy of Dutch tech publication Mobielkopen, and they reveal almost everything about the phone.

[Update: More retailers] The Lenovo Smart Clock is already $60 ($20 off) from Walmart

[Update: More retailers] The Lenovo Smart Clock is already $60 ($20 off) from Walmart

The Lenovo Smart Clock is more or less a Google Home Mini with a screen and some added alarm functionality. It's a decent little device, but the initial price of $80 was somewhat ridiculous especially when you could buy a Google Nest Hub for even less. Just a month after its release, the Smart Clock has now dropped to $59.99.

Google extends support lifespan for seven Lenovo Chromebooks to 2025

Google extends support lifespan for seven Lenovo Chromebooks to 2025

Google Chromebooks, just like smartphones, need access to OS updates to stay secure and up-to-date on the latest features. But also just like phones, they only get updates for so long — something we've made sure to warn you about when shopping for a Chromebook, lest you get stuck with a model whose support lifespan is about to run out. Now one group of devices is getting an unexpected reprieve, as Google extends updates for certain Lenovo Chromebooks through June of 2025.

The Motorola One Action gives the Moto G a run for its money

The Motorola One Action gives the Moto G a run for its money

Motorola once held a practically unchallenged position at the top of the budget smartphone food chain, but increasingly capable competition from the likes of Nokia and a host of Chinese brands has changed the landscape in recent years. The now Lenovo-owned company has also lost its value proposition edge, with the Moto G7 not able to justify its $300 price tag and the recently announced Moto E6 arriving with a perplexing $50 price hike. At the same time, the brand’s high-end lineup is also in disarray — the Moto Z4 continues the focus on irrelevant Mods rather than genuinely compelling hardware.

The Moto E6 Plus has dual cameras and a 6.1-inch screen at €140

The Moto E6 Plus has dual cameras and a 6.1-inch screen at €140

Motorola doesn't cater to the high-end market as much as it used to. Today it focuses on affordable smartphones instead, providing a huge range of wallet-friendly options. In addition to presenting the Motorola One Zoom during IFA 2019, the company also announced its latest E-series product, the Moto E6 Plus. Just like the E5 Plus before it, it's a minor upgrade over the regular E6 and is certainly the more powerful and premium-looking of the two, if you don't mind a notched display.

Lenovo launches a compact 7" Smart Display with Google Assistant

Lenovo launches a compact 7" Smart Display with Google Assistant

Lenovo was one of the first companies to cooperate with Google on an Assistant Smart Display. It launched the unoriginally-named but much-loved Lenovo Smart Display in both 8" and 10" variants last year and essentially won the product category over its competitors. Both the JBL Link View and LG ThinQ View failed to impress us as much as it did, and even Google's Home Nest Hub wasn't a proper replacement due to its lack of a camera for video calls.

Now Lenovo is building on that success with a smaller 7" Smart Display, which seems like a perfect competitor to the Nest Hub because yes, it does have a camera.
