“The Philippines is a very important market for Moto, and we remain committed towards bringing the Moto experience to more Filipinos through our two new Moto Concept Stores.

As part of its goal to become the definitive #3 player in the global smartphone market, Lenovo is building scale and efficiency by expanding its Moto line across emerging markets, including the Philippines. Currently the fastest growing smartphone market in ASEAN, the Philippines has seen a total of 3.5 million smartphone shipments in the first quarter of this year, based on International Data Corporations (IDC)’s June 2016 report.
Both Moto Concept Stores carry the newly-launched Moto smartphone lineup: its flagship line composed of Moto Z, Moto Z Play and the Moto Mods; its mid-range family, which consists of Moto G4 Plus, Moto G4 Play and Moto G Turbo; and the entry-level Moto E3 Power.
