More than a year after Google acquired Motorola Mobility, they have updated the logo to reflect this change. Released today by Motorola itself, the company has made their lettering a bit more thinner and softer than the classic bold and italic “MOTOROLA” that has been used for decades,with the only capital character being the G for their parent company. This logo is joined by a ring of colors around the big M.
The logo first appeared on the site of Techweek, a technology conference Motorola is co-sponsoring in Chicago later this week.
While this new Motorola logo won’t really have an effect on the mobile hardware that it produces, it is a big part of the company’s transition to a Google subsidiary.
This updated logo (and its purple iteration) precedes the device we’ve head about direct from Motorola before, that being the all-American-made Motorola XT1056. Otherwise known (per Motorola) as the MOTO X, this device appears to be coming with a 4.7-inch 720p display, a 1.7GHz dual or quad-core processor from Qualcomm, and 2GB of RAM alongside 16GB of internal storage.
