Lenovo now owns Motorola, we all know that, but how this will affect the Moto series, we don’t. Wether the changes are for the batter or for the worse, we will find out by the end of the summer, as the Chinese company plans to launch Moto Z as its next flagship handset, one that will come with a plethora of backs, each with different texture: from metal to leather, to plasticky and even wooden back covers, or so a few photographs depicting such back covers suggests.
The rumour has it that Moto Z will feature 5.5-inch AMOLED Quad HD display, it will arrive equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 16MP rear-camera, a 3,000 mAh or above in capacity battery and will run stock Android, probably Marshmallow v6.0.1. Hopefully no bloatware will come pre-installed from Lenovo. Since a leaked confirmed that the recently introduced Moto G4 Plus will get an upgrade to Android O build, next year, we can safely assume that as a flagship device, Moto Z, will also receive an update to yet to be announced version of Android.
Aside from the not so unusual specs, the Moto Z is expected to sport some sort of modular system (or not) called Moto Mods, that will allow one to easily switch from one back cover to another. Some of these covers will offer better camera experience, extra battery and so on, sort of like LG’s G5 and its LG Friends.
