When Moto and Lenovo unveil the Moto Z later this week at Tech World in San Francisco, one of the major focuses is going to be on the modularity of the phone. We think we have a pretty good idea as to how that will all work (with magic pins!) and what some of the modules (called Moto Mods) will be, but what does all of that mean for Moto Maker and leathers and woods and customizations to the phone’s appearance? It probably means more Moto Mods as plates with all of those options for quick customizability. (more…)
A current steal-of-a-dual-deal is running through Motorola’s online shop that can land you a Moto X Pure Edition (our review) with 64GB storage and a white or orange Moto 360 Sport (our review) for $399. In case you haven’t memorized the typical combined prices of those two devices yet, at $399, you are looking at a discount of $350. Another way to put it, is this deal hands you a Moto 360 Sport for free and may even slash another $50 off for good measure. (more…)
In just under two weeks, Lenovo is going to unveil the next Moto phone, a phone we are fully expecting to be called the Moto Z at this point. Previous reports have suggested that it will attempt the modular thing with back plates, called MotoMods, that may be much more user-friendly and flexible in terms of potential than what LG tried with the G5. We may also see that same Moto Z phone as a DROID Edition, though there is no certainty that it will show up an Lenovo Tech World on June 9.
This morning (well, last night to be exact), we are getting a fresh look at the Moto Z in DROID Edition form, along with a first look at three of the MotoMod modules. (more…)
Last week, just as Google I/O was kicking off, a report surfaced suggesting that Motorola was moving on from the Moto X line of phones and instead introducing a new Moto Z line. Only adding to that idea, Motorola appears to have filed for a trademark on the day that report arrived for the name “MOTO Z.” (more…)
Moto and Lenovo are expected to show off new Moto phones on June 9 at Lenovo Tech World, one of which is rumored to be insanely thin at just 5.2mm thick. In the lead up to that event, Moto’s Twitter account has started throwing it back to previous phones of theirs that were not only very thin, but iconic. (more…)
According to a report out of Venturebeat, the Moto X line may have been unceremoniously retired by Lenovo in favor of a new Moto line dubbed Moto Z. This news comes on the heels of Lenovo announcing new Moto G phones that may show up later this summer in the US and just before Lenovo shows off new Moto products at its Tech World conference in early June.
Today’s report claims that unpublished marketing materials have revealed the new branding, which also might shift the DROID line at Verizon into Moto Z branding. Let’s talk about what we are being told today. (more…)
We have seen a ton of opinions flying around today regarding the leaks on upcoming devices from Motorola. If you somehow missed it, this morning, we got potential specs for a couple of new devices from Moto, as well as multiple digital renders of the phones. Turns out, the renders match that of a prototype device we saw in December and completely shrugged off, thinking it was just a really bad Photoshop job. I mean, really, it looks like a Moto 360 (1st Gen) glued onto the backside of the phone. It’s pretty funny how things turn out. (more…)
According to details sent to VentureBeat from sources, we should expect two phones from Lenovo and Motorola in the near future (the two seen in this post), two phones that will also be some of the first in the industry to tackle modularity. Currently dubbed (and these better be codenames because they are awful names) Vertex and Vector Thin, but should be sold under the Moto or Moto X brand, each phone will be able to expand capabilities through a suite of modules called “Amps.” Each phone should have solid internals as well, along with almost unbelievable thinness.
