This was then refuted by Lenovo, after which a new report came out claiming that the Moto X line was dead. The company will also be scaling back on Moto mods, focusing on ones that "turn a profit" instead of the niche market it now caters.

An anonymous source talking with Android Police said that Motorola is canceling development of the Motorola Moto X5, which would have been the follow-up to the Moto X4 that came out previous year. 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. This likely means that production of health tracker mods and gamepad mods may discontinue.

A source close to the company confirmed to us that between a third and a half of the engineering staff in Chicago was laid off this week. The official statement also added that the move that Lenovo announced a year ago will continue to happen "over the next few quarters" impacting less than 2 percent of its workforce across the globe. Today, Lenovo told Engadget that the reports are inaccurate in the fact that the layoffs did not impact half of Motorola's workforce in Chicago, but much less. 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.
