According to leaked marketing materials, the model sold in the U.S. will have more modest specs than the versions sold elsewhere, one example being the inclusion of only 4GB of RAM versus the 6GB everyone else will get. The battery, too, will shed considerable capacity according to the materials.

The dual camera craze has hit the mid-range. Thanks to chip makers supporting this mobile photography trend, smartphone makers are finally able to put two cameras on the back.

AnTuTu shows 3 Moto Z models with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

It’s almost like the flood gates have been opened, although what came out is but a slow but steady river.

Actually, three of those. According to AnTuTu’s database, ol’ Moto has three models lined up bearing the latest processor. Including a rather mysterious “Moto Z 2017”.

Next Moto Mods batch includes 360-degree camera, DirectTV DTV

In 2016, two big smartphone makers took a stab at the modular phone idea. Only one of them, however, seems to have really believed in it. Met with lukewarm reception, LG went back to the basics, albeit with less bezels. Lenovo-owned Motorola, however, soldiered on And while its first set of Moto Mods were on the tame and traditional side, the upcoming concepts shown off at a press event in Ghana seems to at least show a bit of teeth.

Moto E4 Review: Verizon’s best cheap phone

Moto E4 Review: Verizon’s best cheap phone

This week the Motorola-made Moto E4 for Verizon is on our review desk, and things are looking up. This device is one of the lowest-cost Motorola smartphones ever made, made to take the place of the Moto G as king of the budget smartphones. Where the Moto G was one of the most inspiring low-cost high-quality phones made in the past half-decade, the Moto E4 is the less-hyped but better-suited tiny monster that's now the best value smartphone available through Verizon - and soon other carriers, too.

Five cheap smartphones with a fingerprint sensor (mid-2017)

Five cheap smartphones with a fingerprint sensor (mid-2017)

Modern smartphones look a bit different than ones from just a few years ago: there's the double rear cameras, of course, but more pervasive is the fingerprint sensor. A fingerprint sensor built into a phone offers a highly convenient form of security, but is also becoming an important component in making mobile payments. While a fingerprint sensor is included on all the big flagship handsets, those tend to cost $600 or more. Can you get fingerprint sensor on a (much) cheaper phone? Yes, yes you can.

This Moto Z2 Play Moto Mod seemed absurd at first, now it’s my favorite

This Moto Z2 Play Moto Mod seemed absurd at first, now it’s my favorite

The JBL SoundBoost 2 Moto Mod makes the Moto Z2 Play downright thick. I'd laid hands on a few Moto Mods before and I'd even used the Moto Z for a while when it was first revealed. But until now, I'd not been convinced that Motorola's implementation of a modular smartphone accessory system was worth the effort. With the release of the second wave of Moto Mods with the Moto Z2 and the Moto Z2 Play, I've seen the light. And it comes from the speaker masters at JBL.
