Moto Z Play, Pro Camera and Adventure Mods still coming

Moto Z Play, Pro Camera and Adventure Mods still coming

Lenovo and Motorola may have unveiled a ton of new devices last week, but there were still a few things missing from the roster. At least as far as expectations set by leaks are concerned. According to a new leak, however, it isn't the end just yet. A Moto Z Play, presumably the more affordable version of the Moto Z, is still en route, probably not far behind. Even more than that, two other Moto Mods, the Pro Camera and the Adventure mods, will also soon be making their way to the market.

Moto Z first impressions and hands-on

Today we've gotten our hands on the Moto Z Droid Edition and the Moto Z Droid Force Edition of Motorola's newest smartphone platform. The Moto Z family of devices works with what they call Moto Mods. These "Mods" are accessories that attach to the Moto Z smartphone and work in tandem with said smartphones in a variety of ways. Today we're having a look at the Verizon-centric smartphones from this lineup, both with DROID in their name.

Moto Z has no headphone jack

Moto Z has no headphone jack

Today Motorola and Lenovo revealed the Moto Z phone, a device without a headphone jack. That's not the primary feature on the smartphone, of course, but for those that use their smartphone's headphone jack every single day of the year, it's a difficult feature to miss. The Moto Z and the Moto Z Droid (as it'll be called with Verizon) will both have the ability to work with Moto Mods - accessories that plug-and-play with the smartphone line.

Moto Z Droid “Moto Mods” pre-order, details, and official specs

Today Motorola jumps in on the modular smartphone business with their own take: Moto Z Droid with Moto Mods.

Moto Mods will work with this generation Moto Z devices and "are designed to work with future generation Moto Z phones" as well. Weird!

Tomorrow is Motorola’s big day, here’s where to watch it

Tomorrow is Motorola’s big day, here’s where to watch it

June 9 will be an auspicious day for two companies. Well, a company and a half. It is the start of Lenovo's Tech World conference and, naturally, Motorola will be there, too. While Lenovo itself will have a few mobile devices to show off, Motorola has its own thing as well. Tomorrow, we'll finally get to see if the Moto Z, or maybe just the Moto X4, can really bring Motorola back to the top the way the RAZR did nearly a decade ago.

Moto Z Style Mods leaked as swappable back covers

Moto Z Style Mods leaked as swappable back covers

In just a few days, we will finally see for ourselves what Lenovo and Motorola have been cooking up behind closed doors. Well, somewhat closed, because such doors have never really prevented otherwise confidential materials from leaking out. Like these "Style Mods" for example, which is just a rather fancy term to describe what are most likely hot swap back covers for the Moto Z, which is also a just a fancy new name for the amalgamation of Lenovo's and Motorola's high-end flagship lines.

Lenovo reveals Motorola integration failed expectations

Lenovo reveals Motorola integration failed expectations

Perhaps Motorola's "curse" continues. While many of Motorola's mobile devices, like the iconic RAZR or the Moto X, were well received, the company somewhat failed to become profitable. At least not long enough to stay put. Barely a few years after Google acquired it, Motorola was sold off again, this time to PC giant Lenovo. Now in its full-year fiscal report ending March 2016, the first fiscal year since it acquired Motorola, Lenovo candidly revealed that its integration of the mobile company fell below expectations, resulting in some losses though the general mobile business did grow as a whole.

Moto does an LG: Moto Z, or X, to also get modular

Moto does an LG: Moto Z, or X, to also get modular

Modular smartphones seem to be a hot thing again. LG may be the first OEM to more or less make that dream a reality, but the biggest fires were fanned by Google's ATAP, which was then part of Motorola, which was then under Google. That seems to be coming full circle, as Motorola, now under Lenovo, is leaked to reveal a modular smartphone next month, perhaps even more modular than the LG G5. That is the latest rumor surrounding the Moto Z which is scheduled to debut on June 9.

Motorola RAZR takes center stage in June 9th event teaser

Motorola RAZR takes center stage in June 9th event teaser

Motorola, and Lenovo, seems to be playing the Throwback Thursday card in teasing its upcoming event where it is expected to reveal a rebranded flagship line. Motorola unequivocally calls to mind the success and ubiquity of its RAZR flip phone, especially among the youngsters of the previous generation (a.k.a. today's professionals). Of course, the video's real motives are open to interpretation and speculation, but suffice it to say, Motorola is trying to drum up hype and expectation that would be equivalent to the prestige that the RAZR enjoyed back then.

DxOMark puts Moto G Plus at #9 in photography lineup

DxOMark puts Moto G Plus at #9 in photography lineup

In previous years, the only time you really get to hear about a smartphone's camera performance was in a review, sponsored or otherwise, days or weeks after the device goes to market. But with mobile photography taking on a more central role in smartphones today, you just can't get those reviews soon enough. That is why some OEMs like Lenovo have taken to DxOMark to provide that much needed "professional" verdict right on Day 1. And luckily for Lenovo and Motorola, the Moto G (or G4) Plus took away a rather glowing review that put it within the top 10 smartphones in DxOMark's list.

Moto G4 vs Plus vs Play release date and specs impressions

Moto G4 vs Plus vs Play release date and specs impressions

This morning we're having a peek at the full collection of new Motorola smartphones, each of which have a new role to play in the mid-range dominance game. The Moto G4 and its slightly more beefy sibling, the Moto G4 Plus, both work with 5.5-inch displays with 1080p resolution. The least of this new collection of phones is the Moto G4 Play, a device with a 5-inch display with 720p resolution. What could Motorola be thinking with such displays? They're thinking they're about to make a lot of money, that's what.
