Hoping to bounce back from a lengthy period of dormancy, Motorola Mobility formally announced its re-entry into the Philippine market yesterday, which coincided with the local launch of 3 Motorola smartphones that are slated for release in the near future.

I’m referring to the Moto X (2014), Moto G (2014), and Moto E (2015), which are expected to show up in stores by the end of July. (Sorry, Nexus fans. It looks like a local release is currently out of the question for the Nexus 6.)

The Moto X (2014), Moto G (2014), and Moto E (2015), which are expected to show up in the Philippines by the end of July.

As far as specifications go, the Moto X, the most expensive of the bunch, packs a 5.2-inch AMOLED display with 1080p resolution and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor fitted with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of non-expandable storage.

The Moto G takes aim at the mid-range segment and comes with a 5-inch, 720p IPS display and a quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM, while the entry-level Moto E has a 4.5-inch IPS display and an LTE-capable, quad-core processor. All 3 devices are already running Android Lollipop.

As for pricing, the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto E can be had for P16,999, P8,499, and P6,999, respectively. But I wouldn’t be too quick to drop money on either Moto X or Moto G, as enticing as they are. According to The Verge, Motorola will in all likelihood introduce updates to the Moto X and Moto G lines on July 28, so you’re probably better off waiting if you’re interested.
