This is not all, another report by the publication adds that the company has announced that it will can the unannounced Moto X5 in addition to scaling back its Moto Mod program to focus on the most popular mods which sell well in the market.

Their expected last day of work is April 6, 2018. The statement confirmed that the brand would continue putting efforts in the modular smartphone space with the Moto Z series.
