The Modular Moto Z to Start Selling in India from October 4th

Moto Z Play

The pocket-friendly Moto E3 Power was recently launched by Lenovo and to follow this up, the Chinese tech giant is set to avail the Moto Z series in the giant Asian country.

The Moto Z, announced a few months ago, will finally be making its debut in India on the same day that we expect the Google Pixel phones to be launched. The Moto Z is the first ever phone to feature a modular design from the company, but it finds the LG G5 in the market already, which could make things a little tougher.

There are three models of the Moto Z namely the standard Moto Z, the Moto Z Force, and the Moto Z Play. However, the tech giant has not confirmed whether all three models will be availed in India during the said date.

As noted earlier, the Moto Z is the first modular phone by Lenovo and the fact that it is a modular phone makes it a major attraction to buyers. There is a 16-pin connector on the back of the phone which simply attracts Moto Mods to connect to it, thus adding more functionality. Some of these Moto Mods include battery packs, projector, speaker as well as camera, among many others that are yet to be unveiled. These mods are expected to be available when the phone makes its debut in the country.

On the specs aspect, you need to note that the Moto Z is a flagship phone and such, it comes with a 5.5-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. There is a Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood, which has been paired with a 4GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. You also get room to expand the storage via a microSD card. Basics such as Bluetooth, 4G LTE connectivity, USB Type-C as well as fingerprint scanner are all available.

The rear snapper of the Moto Z comprises of a 13MP snapper that carries a f/1.8 aperture, OIS as well as a dual-tone LED flash. The front part, on the other hand, has a 5MP selfie camera. There is a rather disappointing battery unit of just 2600mAh, with room for fast charging. Just to give you a heads up, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack on the Moto Z, instead, the audio has been routed via the earlier-mentioned USB Type-C port.

As for the mid-range Moto Z Play, you get the same screen size, but a lower resolution of 1080p. You also get scaled-down specs that included a Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. There is a 16MP snapper on the back with dual-tone LED flash, a 5MP selfie lens and a surprisingly larger battery of 3510mAh. You still get 4G LTE, fingerprint scanner as well as USB Type-C port, which also works as the audio port.
