Lenovo has confirmed that the Moto Z will make its way to India by October. Moto Mods accessories will also be available at launch, according to Lenovo's SVP Aymar de Lencquesaing. Without going into a lot of detail, the executive mentioned that the accessories will be priced in the $50-$200 range.
In an interview with Gadgets 360, Lencquesaing said:
It [Moto Z and Moto Mods] will come to India in September or October time frame and this is a product for which we think there is scope in the Indian market.
If we talk about our geographical business, leaving China, we are balanced. We have strong smartphone foothold in Brazil, Latin America, EMEA, Middle East, and Africa. We are now extending our smartphone business to Western Europe. Apart from India, we are doing extremely well in Indonesia. In Brazil, we are the number two [smartphones] brand and believe that we can replicate that in India.
Revenue from India crossed $1 billion last year, with Lenovo manufacturing over 6 million handsets under the "Make in India" initiative. To continue momentum, Lenovo is looking to the offline market:
We will now also enter the offline market and want to continue our momentum. If we enter the offline market, it will be to be present with comprehensive part of our product portfolio and over time one will see most of our products available offline as you see them online.
