Motorola emerged once again as a strong competitor in the global mobile market with the launch of the Moto X and Moto G last year. Soon after both smartphones were launched, rumors started circulating that the company was also working on a 6.3-inch tablet. Apparently it would be called the Motorola Xplay. Rumors about the phablet have surfaced once again, with the latest claiming that Motorola is going to launch it in the third quarter of this year.

Motorola, which Lenovo has acquired for $2.91 billion from Google, hasn’t officially commented on its future plans. These days its busy showing off its new smartwatch, the Moto 360. Q3 launch timeframe for the phablet seems possible, it would be around the same time that a Moto X successor would be expected by the market.

However, the tipster who has made these claims on Weibo, doesn’t say anything about the phablet’s specifications. Doesn’t even confirm if the Motorola Xplay moniker is correct. Apparently Motorola created the 6.3-inch phablet while it was still a Google-owned company, and it seems like Lenovo isn’t scrapping its 2014 plans just yet.

Information about pricing and availability has not been offered. Motorola hasn’t commented on the rumors, so until there’s official word, its best to take this with a grain of salt.
