Moto Z, Moto Z Play and Moto M to officially launch in Pakistan

Having been through grey channels for more than a couple of years, Motorola Android smartphones with “Hello Moto” tag line never made it to Pakistan officially. But now it’s going to happen soon with the initial launch of most recent Moto Z flagship smartphones.

Update: Moto Z has been officially launched in Pakistan

Lenovo Pakistan has its plans to launch three of the Motorola smartphones in the country by February 2017, reports More News. The report suggests that for now the Pakistan market will see the most recent Moto Z, Moto Z Play and Moto M if the sources close to More news are to be believed.

After acquiring Motorola Mobility back in 2014, a few months ago, Lenovo finally announced Moto as a brand name for its future smartphones and now I guess the “small” brand name helped a little bit entering the brand officially in Pakistan.

Estimated Prices

The prices of these smartphones have not been revealed however according to global prices, the estimated prices are as follows. Moto Z may cost PKR. ~75,000/-, Moto Z Play for PKR. ~45,000/- and Moto M would sell for PKR ~ 30,000/-
