Motorola promised last month that it would be returning to China soon and would be bringing with it a new smartphone. The company lived up to that promise, sort of. The American brand has announced its re-emergence in the Chinese market, but the new device is actually just a re-tooled Nexus 6.

The company has of course recently been bought by Chinese giant Lenovo, so a return to the most populous nation on the planet seemed likely. Motorola's woes pre the Google buyout meant the company had to pull out of China, but the Moto brand is making a comeback with three devices. The "new" handset is the Moto X Pro, which is for all intents and purposes just a renamed Nexus 6. It has the same 6-inch Quad HD screen, 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805, and all the other trimmings that come with Google's flagship.

The other two handsets arriving in the country will be the Moto G device, with the budget handset likely to be popular in China. Finally, Motorola's current flagship, the Moto X, will also be landing in the country in late February alongside the Moto X Pro. The Moto G will launch first at the start of next month.
