Rumors about Motorola being ready to replace the Moto X line-up of smartphones with the Moto Z, which may be available in two variants just like the Moto X, maybe true after all.
Motorola has just set to launch date of June 9 for the unveiling of the two devices. Since going under the arm of Lenovo, Motorola have been in the news of late with the launch of phones like the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus. The arrival of the Moto Z could complete the segment where the bulk of the market share race is going on.
The Moto Z is set to be vastly different depending on the model chosen. The Moto Z Style will place preference to the looks of the device more than ever before. The design of the Moto Z Style will be radically different to the current generation Moto X Style. The Moto Z Style will sacrifice aspects like longer battery life in the search for an extremely thin device. In doing so, Motorola may have hit a jackpot going by the rumors. The Moto Z Style is expected to be around just 6 mm in thickness.
The Moto Z Play, however, is likely to be more popular amongst the majority of buyers since it provides everything required from today’s smartphone in a better manner. This means that the 5.5 inch display with QHD resolution can be enjoyed in its full glory for much longer. The phone sacrifices a bit of the looks in the search for more practicality. While one has to go after the charger within a day on the Moto Z Style, the Moto Z Play may be easily lasting a day or more depending on the usage pattern.
The Moto Z Style is also expected to come with similar specifications in the display. However, a major difference could come about in terms of the processor. The Moto Z Style is rumored to use the snapdragon 820 processor whereas the Moto Z Play will use the snapdragon 625 processor. This difference will cause a substantial change in the benchmark tests.
The sacrifice made in terms of processors may help the Moto Z Play to come with a 16-megapixel rear camera whereas the Moto Z Style is rumored to have only a 13-megapixel camera in the rear. As a launch date approaches, one can expect leaked pictures to arrive.
