Lenovoo Announces Moto Z and Moto Z Force With Swappable Modular Backs

Lenovo’s Keynote at Tech World was used as an opportunity by the hardware manufacturer to announce two new Android powered smartphones produced by its sister company, Motorola. The company it seems is on a roll as it just launched the world’s first Tango powered smartphone and has now finally decided to take advantage of Motorola’s acquisition by launching the new Z series.

This new series of Moto smartphones will comprise Moto Z and the Moto Z Force, both of which share similar visual features. We are going to give you a comprehensive update about everything we know about the two new phones. Only 5.2 mm thick, Moto Z is the first in the lineup. It comes with a quad-core Snapdragon 820 processor which is accompanied by 4GB of RAM.

The phone has the new USB-C type port and comes in both 32 and 64 GB internal storage which can be increased by a micro SD card. It is powered by a 2600mAh battery and has 5.5 inch Quad HD display which has a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. The Moto Z comes with a 13 MP back camera which has an LED flash.

The second phone in the lineup, namely Moto Z force is thicker measuring 7.2mm.The Moto Z Force shares the same internal setup as Moto Z, mentioned above. Both the phones run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The difference in the phones however is in the display department. The Moto Z Force has ShatterSheild protection which comes with the guarantee that the screen shall not shatter or crack under any circumstances.

The increased thickness of the Moto Z force has let Lenovo inculcate a 21 megapixel camera sensor which has optical image stabilization and laser autofocus. The battery size has also been increased to 3500 mAh. The specs for both the models look appreciable for the 2016 flagship but whether they make it or break it depends on their modular capabilities.

The phones have been built in such a way they are in sync with Moto mods, which are snap in modules which bring added functionality to the device according to the needs and wishes of the user. For example the user of the phone may wish to have a snap in module which has a built in speaker and battery or a pico projector built in. Another piquing feature of the phones is that they do not come with the traditional 3.5 mm headphone jack.

So consumers will either have to use USB Type-C headphones or Bluetooth enabled headphones. Both the phones will be selling under the brand name of Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid at Verizon in the United States this summer. The unlocked versions will be available by fall.
