Motorola's new Moto Mod might be a Daydream viewer in disguise

Motorola lays off up to half of Chicago engineering team, says Moto Z line will 'continue'

According to multiple reports such as 9to5Google's, Moto has laid off up to a half of its engineering staff in Chicago, leading to the shuttering of the sequel to last year's Moto X4, the Moto X5. There have been reports about the dire situation facing Lenovo as both its smartphone division, which includes Motorola, and its computer business are struggling to make profits over the past few years.

In a cost cutting exercise Motorola are also looking to scale back their involvement in the development of third party Moto Mods.

Ranveer Singh and his fashionable outfits : No one does it like him!
Ranveer Singh was spotted wearing a white t-shirt, and green skirt along with round yellow cap and white shoes. When she was asked about returning to India, the actress replied saying that she would be back next week.

In late 2017, Lenovo announced a worldwide resource action that would occur over the next several quarters, and impacting less than two percent of its global workforce. The company has confirmed the layoffs in its Chicago office, but announced the Moto Z series of modular phones is emerging unscathed.

As a final note, did Motorola need to turn the headset into a Moto Mod? The report says this means products such as gamepad and health tracker mods will get the cut. Their expected last day of work is April 6, 2018. With the Moto X5 now shelved, we will have to wait and see what the company plans to do to fill this price bracket. This week's employment reductions are a continuation of that process. This comes nearly a day after prolific leaker Evan Blass posted images about Motorola's unreleased "Virtual Viewer" mod which will be more like a Daydream headset then a mode. Today, Lenovo told Engadget that the reports are inaccurate in the fact that the layoffs did not impact half of Motorola's workforce in Chicago, but much less. They are the Livermorium Slider Keyboard, the Lenovo Vital Moto Mod, and the Moto Folio Case, though only the case is available for purchase at the moment.
