Moto Z and Moto Z Force announced at Lenovo Tech World 2016
As promised, Lenovo’s Tech World 2016 in San Francisco marked the launch of much anticipated Moto Z and Moto Z Force phones. Slated as the slimmest and lightest flagship out there, the phone has sleek design aesthetics and comes with the refreshing MotoMod snap-on back panels to enhance various hardware features. Moto Z is just 5.2mm thick and that means a lower battery power of 2600 mAh. While Moto Z Force measuring 155.90 x 75.80 x 7.00 mm has a respectable 3500 mAh battery pack. Both these phones are going to be available globally from September this year, loaded with Android Marshmallow OS, and in all probability upgradable to the next Android OS.
Coming onto the specifications of Moto Z and the slightly better Moto Z Force, both the devices will lure buyers beyond doubt. Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC powered Moto Z has 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display (resolution 2560 x 1440). 4GB of RAM ensures graphics intensive and multi-tasking capabilities that will come to the Android N operating system. The water-resistant phone will come in 32GB or 64GB storage options with an expandable microSD card up to 2TB. There is a 13MP rear camera with optical image stabilization and 5MP front camera with wide-angle lens.
Moto Z Force comes with 5.5-inch Quad HD display which is shatter proof. It has a slightly better 21 MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera.
These phones won’t have any 3.5mm headphone jack
Both the phones come with fingerprint sensor and surprisingly no 3.5mm headphone jack which is replaced by UCB Type-C connector. However, Motorola are mindful enough to include a 3.5mm to USB-C headphone port adapter.
There is no pricing available of both these devices, but that is going to be announced soon. We’ll keep you updated then.
Lenovo also announced the first device with Google Project Tango technology.
