And the story continues…. first it was rumors about layoffs at Motorola’s Chicago offices, then came the company’s rebuttal (although not outright), and now a new report that says Motorola has shelved its plans to launch the successor to the Moto X4 due to the layoffs.
Yes, the report says the Moto X5 – which has leaked at least a couple of times until now – has been canceled, and the company will now shift its complete focus to E, G, and Z series of phones.
So this means it’s the end of road for the Moto X line-up, at least for the time being. In addition, the report also notes Motorola is also giving up on certain type of Mods, focusing only on those that can turn a profit.
