New Delhi: The name Motorola will be wiped off phones in 2016.

As per cnet.com, Lenovo, which bought Motorola Mobility from Google in 2014, is unifying its two phone businesses under the Lenovo name.

It's going to use Motorola's Moto brand for high-end products and its homegrown Vibe brand for budget devices.

Though the iconic M "batwing" logo will remain, consumers will stop seeing the Motorola name on Moto products. Instead, they'll be branded Moto by Lenovo.

"We'll slowly phase out Motorola and focus on Moto," Osterloh said in an exclusive interview Thursday at the CES conference in Las Vegas.
