Ahead of IFA later this month, Lenovo has just released a new teaser video for its upcoming product announcements. This new teaser looks back at some of the previous tech Lenovo has released at IFA such as its Yoga Windows laptops, tablets, and even give us another look at those crazy flexible phones and tablets from Tech World earlier this year.
We went hands-on with the Moto Z and Moto Z Force earlier this year at Lenovo’s event in San Francisco, California. But now, as the phones are about to hit store shelves (or at least Verizon’s shelves), we’ve finally received our review units. While our full review(s) won’t drop until next week, we wanted to give you all an opportunity to ask about the phones — ask us anything!
The Moto Z2 Play just arrived at my doorstep, and it came with a couple of new Moto Mods. The original Z Play was celebrated for its excellent battery life and good performance for the price. A lot of people are worried about the smaller battery in the new model, but I’m hopeful that better software optimization will still offer similar performance.
While Lenovo’s new Moto Z is grabbing attention for a lot of reasons, the main selling point for this new device is its design supporting modular backplates. With a few strong magnets and some pins, a special module called a ‘Moto Mod‘ can instantly expand the capabilities of the phone. At Tech World last week, the company showed off several mods that would be available at launch. It didn’t, however, reveal pricing. Thankfully, Verizon has.
The Moto Z is unique because it features the ability to attach different ‘Mods’ to the back of the phone to give it extra functionality. Moto has now put out two one-minute long ads showing off the JBL Soundboost and the Insta-Share Projector, both of which makes sharing media with others a snap.
In this week’s top stories: We give you new Galaxy Note 7 details ahead of an official launch, go hands-on w/ Moto Z , Moto Z Force, & Moto Mods, and we get a look at early Android Nougat builds running on the Nexus 6P and Huawei P9. more…
Motorola Lenovo is just a few short days away from announcing their next Android flagship, the Moto Z (or Moto X 2016 as it’s also known). We’re all excited to see what will be unveiled, but through a series of leaks we know quite a lot about the new phone. We know that it’ll have a metal design, but one of the biggest downsides to that is that users won’t be able to customize the look of the phone. However thanks to a new set of leaks, it looks like we’ll be able to retain that after all, sort of.
If you’re a recent Motorola customer, and in particular a happy one, chances are that today’s news will make you even happier. If you snagged one of the firm’s latest devices in their new Z line, you’ll be satisfied to hear that commitment to the Moto Mods program has been bolstered fully…
Lenovo today officially unveiled the new Moto Z2 Force. As the successor to last year’s Z Force, the device has an identical footprint and is compatible with both old and new Moto Mods. Alongside the Z2 Force, Lenovo also showed off two new Mods: a gaming controller and a 360-degree camera.
Are Moto Mods enough to convince you to purchase the Moto Z2 Force?
Moto Mods are the headlining feature for the Moto Z family, and with today’s launch of the Moto Z2 Play, Motorola is launching four brand new Moto Mods, all debuting later this summer. As you might expect, they all work with the Moto Z2 Play as well as previous Moto Z devices.
