Moto X Pro Announced for China with 6-Inch 2K Display

Motorola announced plans to bring its smartphone lineup to China on Monday, including the Moto X, Moto G and an unexpected new device called the Moto X Pro. As far as we can tell this Pro variant is the same Nexus 6 spinoff we heard about back in Feb., though it looks like this device could be a Chinese exclusive—at least for now.

The Moto X Pro packs the same 6-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 13-megapixel rear camera and 3220mAh battery found on the Nexus 6. However, we’re guessing this device won’t have access to Google services like the Play Store and Gmail, which are blocked in China. The device is set to launch after the Chinese New Year on Feb. 19, so hopefully we’ll know more then.

Meanwhile, the regular Moto X is set to hit China early next month, and Motorola is giving local fans the chance to vote on which colors and materials will be available first for the device. The Moto G is also set to launch in the country later next month with 4G LTE support and dual-SIM card slots.

We’ve reached out to Motorola for more information on the Moto X Pro, and we’ll let you know as soon as we get a response.
