Chinese smartphone brand Lenovo has just officially completed the takeover of Motorola Mobility. The company had started the acquisition of Motorola from Google last year. While the ‘A Google Company’ monicker was removed from Motorola’s logo a long time ago, the acquisition had been ongoing and the company was still under Google when it came up with phones like the Moto X (1st and 2nd Gen), Moto G and others.
The announcement was made by Motorola through a blog post on its official blog. The company also issued a press release directing the media to the post. Under Google, Motorola had worked on projects like the Mobile Computing System, Project Ara and others. While Motorola continues to own the Mobile Computing System, Project Ara will go to Google.
While Motorola has been acquired by Lenovo, the headquarters of the company will remain in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart in Silicon Valley. Also, the acquisition doesn’t affect the company and both the Moto and Droid brands will continue to sell.
