Motorola considering a $50 smartphone: Report

New Motorola LogoLooks like Motorola isn’t done with its mass market plans and wants to the smartphone pricing further down with a future smartphone. The company is reportedly trying to break the price barrier and offer a smartphone at just $50.

Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside revealed these plans in an interview with Trusted Reviews. He said that they need smartphones even cheaper than Moto G to reach more consumers.

“In much of the world $179 is a lot of money so there’s a big market at a price point of less than $179. We’re going to look at that and just delivering on that value promise is super important. I mean why can’t these devices be $50? There’s no reason that can’t happen so we’re going to push that,” Woodside told Trusted Reviews.

He did not state the specifics about the phone but with smartphone components getting cheaper every day and even Google lowering the hardware requirements with KitKat release, we could be closer to a $50 smartphone.
