Motorola was an American telecommunication equipment corporation when it was founded in 1928. They were the first to launch a flip phone in 1990. Motorola had a huge impact on the analog phone market, but they slowed down when it came to the digital. But they recovered quickly and joined the competition by introducing the Motorola Razr V3 in 2004.
Motorola Razr V3 was a very thin and elegant flip feature phone, and it is still the most sold flip phone in the world (130 million units in four years). But after that, from 2007-2009, they lost $4.3 billion in business. So, their business was divided into two different public companies, Motorola Solutions, and Motorola Mobility. Motorola Mobility went on to manufacture smartphones with Google's Android operating system. At the end of 2009, they launched their first Android phone Motorola Droid (also known as Motorola Droid 1). They made the right decision to choose Android as Droid was a huge success for them. Even the company was awarded many prizes by well-recognized institutions. So after that success, they revealed Droid 2, Droid X, Droid Bionic and so on. All of these Droid models were relatively successful in the early days. The complete business of Motorola Mobility was sold to Google in 2012. Later in 2014, the Chinese multinational tech giant Lenovo acquired Motorola and now it is called Motorola - a Lenovo Company. Since then, Motorola kept launching successful smartphones around the globe and Lenovo together with Motorola is among the top smartphone companies in the world regarding sales.
The price of Motorola phones in Bangladesh is a little higher than the international price because of raised import tax and courier fees. But this is the case for all imported smartphones from outside the country. Their models are available to consumers with a low-mid to a high budget range. Because of the popularity of few other Chinese brands such as Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi, both Motorola and Lenovo are not generating a significant amount of sales in Bangladesh. Among these two brands, Leveno is a more popular name of recent times in Bangladesh.
