Lenovo Tech World 2016: Moto Z and Moto Z Force debut with Moto Mods

As most of you already know that Motorola is now under Lenovo, so it’s not surprising to see Moto devices at Lenovo Tech World 2016.

The Moto Z is the latest flagship, which features a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display covered by a Gorilla Glass. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4 GB RAM and 32/64 GB expandable storage.

The Moto Z packs a 13 MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, OIS, laser auto-focus and dual-LED flash. Selfie wise, you’ll get a 5 MP wide-angle lens with f/2.2 aperture and flash.

One interesting thing about the device is the lack of 3.5 mm audio jack. However, the USB Type-C to audio jack adapter will come in the box. Not to forget that the device is only 5.2 mm thick!

The Moto Z runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and boasts a 2,600 mAh battery with TurboPower charger included for faster charging speed.

Moto Z Force_1

The Moto Z Force is the enhanced version of the regular Moto Z. It has the same 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, but the display is protected by ShatterShield — guaranteed not to crack or shatter.

The device is thicker compared to the regular Moto Z, measuring at 6.99 mm thick. Thicker body means bigger battery, the Moto Z Force boasts a 3,500 mAh battery with TurboPower charger included for faster charging speed as well.

The rest of the specs are pretty similar to the regular Moto Z besides a higher resolution 21 MP rear camera — Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB RAM, 32/64 GB expandable storage, 5 MP front camera, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and no 3.5 mm audio jack.

Additionally, the company also introduced the Moto Mods, which is a series of back covers that comes with different functionalities. The Moto Mods is something like what ASUS did to the ZenPad series, you can just attach covers like add-on battery, projector, boombox, or just simply a back cover with different textures and feels.

High-powered magnets connect Moto Mods to your phone so you can easily snap them together as your needs change. Plus, Lenovo also introduced Moto Mods Developer Program, which allows you to develop the next generation of Moto Mods. Pretty cool, huh?
