    Motorola officially announced they are bringing the Moto X, the Moto G and the Moto X Pro to China. While the first two phones aren't a surprise, that last one is relatively unknown. It turns out the Moto X Pro is basically just the Nexus 6 rebadged for the Chinese market.

    The internal specs are identical right down to the 6-inch QHD display, 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3,220mAh battery, 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) & more. Obviously, the other icing on the cake would be the this "version" of the Nexus 6 would also include great Moto X software, like Moto Display, Voice, Assist, and Actions.

    That sounds pretty appealing doesn't it? Too bad it isn't coming to the US. Here's the full press release in the thread below.
