Motorola is making a comeback in the Nepali market!

Motorola Smartphones Price in Nepal [Updated]

This year, we have seen a couple of smartphone brands making a return to the Nepali smartphone industry. The list includes Tecno, Gionee, and Poco. And now, there is news of another brand joining the list. For those unaware, Motorola will soon be available in the Nepali market. In this post, we will be taking a look at all the smartphones that Motorola could launch in Nepal, along with their specs, expected price, and availability.

Motorola: Brand Overview

Motorola has a very long history in the telecommunication industry. The company started as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation in 1928 and was renamed Motorola when it started to work on car radios. Talking about its achievement, Motorola was the first mobile company to make a handheld phone. Interestingly, it was through a Motorola transceiver that Neil Armstrong spoke the words “one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”.

However, Motorola Mobility, the smartphone manufacturer that we know today, came into existence when the original Motorola Inc. split into two separate entities in 2011. Google acquired Motorola Mobility in 2012 and it was under Google’s ownership that the company witnessed its much-needed success in the smartphone market, especially in South Asia. It was largely due to the popular G-series which were sturdy, affordable, and came with stock Android experience. However, Google sold the company to Lenovo in 2014 and since then, Motorola has been a shadow of the company that it used to be.

Motorola in Nepal

Motorola entered the Nepali market in 2017 with budget-friendly C-series and E-series of smartphones. But because of the tough price points of smartphones from other Chinese vendors, Motorola failed to make an impact at the time in Nepal. And now, the company is making a comeback. Motorola has chosen Call Mobility as its official distributor. Call Mobility is also the official distributor of Huawei smartphones in Nepal. The news of an experienced player like Call Mobility bringing back the Motorola brand in Nepal has got us really excited.

For now, we expect the affordable E and G-series to make up the core business of Motorola in Nepal. That being said, we might also see a handful of One series devices as well. Below is the list of Motorola smartphones that will officially come to Nepal. All these phones will be exclusively launched on the 12th of Dec from Daraz.
