Motorola has launched a number of fine smartphones over the last couple of years, the Moto X and Moto G spring to mind, as does the budget oriented Moto E. However, the company has not released a device in China for some time, ignoring one of the biggest and most important markets with its Moto smartphones. However, Motorola is now ready to re-enter the Chinese market and will be bringing some "exciting devices".

The company's decision to come back to China probably has a lot to do with Lenovo, the new owners of the Motorola Mobility business. The Chinese based electronics giant purchased Motorola from Google earlier in the year and the deal was closed last month.

Motorola has now confirmed it will return to the Chinese market, with the company's official website in the country. There is no official word on when the company will release a device, but it did say two mysterious smartphones would be launched at some point, the XT1079 and the XT1085. Not much is known about these devices other than they are not an existing Moto product and they will have LTE.

We do know that a new version of Motorola's Moto E budget device is imminent, and that has been widely tipped to have LTE connectivity. Perhaps a Chinese variant of that upcoming device is being prepared, or will the company surprise us with an entirely new smartphone?
