Moto Mods & Style Shells

The key feature of the Moto Z line-up is its expandability using modules called Moto Mods. They are magnetically attached to the Moto Z and Moto Z Play, adding additional functions to the phones without looking too out of place.

There are only 4 modules to choose from at the moment, but, rest assured – more Moto Mods will be added soon. Lenovo Malaysia also mentioned that these Moto Mods will be compatible with any future Moto Z line-up.

Also available are Style Shell back covers that lets you transform your phone to fit your style, though, they can only be used when no Moto Mods are attached.

The Moto Z Smartphone

The Moto Z is the flagship device within the two new phones. It is razor thin, just 5.2mm. So thin, they had to remove the 3.5mm stereo output as a result! (Not to worry, A USB Type-C to 3.5mm stereo adapter is included!)

The Moto Z has a 5.5″ Quad HD AMOLED display. The powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, along with 4 GB of RAM, allows the Moto Z to perform without a hitch! There’s 64 GB of internal flash storage. The Moto Z is also dual SIM, dual standby capabable.

The Moto Z smartphone features a 13 MP main camera with f/1.8 lens, optical image stabilisation (OIS), as well as laser autofocus. A 5 MP camera equipped with 85° wide-angle lens takes centre stage on the front of the Moto Z. It also comes with LED flash, just in case you need to take selfies in the dark. Charging comes in the form of a proprietary system, called TurboPower, which enables the Moto Z to get up to 7 hours of power in 15 minutes of charging!

 

The Moto Z Play Smartphone

The Moto Z Play might seem like the cheaper alternative to the flagship, but don’t let that fool you! While it is slightly thicker at 6.99mm, it packs a 3510 mAh battery, to provide Moto’s longest lasting smartphone ever!

The Moto Z Play also has a 5.5″ display, but is a Full HD Super AMOLED panel instead. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, along with 3 GB of RAM, still manages to provide a smooth user experience. Internal flash storage had been reduced to 32 GB. The Moto Z Play is also a dual SIM, dual standby smartphone.

The Moto Z Play smartphone has a 16 MP main camera with f/2.0 lens. While it drops optical image stabilisation (OIS), it adds phase detection autofocus (PDAF) to go along with its laser autofocus to give it zero shutter lag. On the front, is has the same 5 MP front camera setup with the flagship Moto Z. The Moto Z Play also comes with TurboPower charger. A 15 minutes charge is enough for up to 8 hours of use.

There are some similarities between both the Moto Z and Moto Z Play. Both shares the ability of expanding storage via a dedicated microSD card slot (up to 2 TB). The Moto Z and Moto Z Play also shares the usage of a USB Type-C connector. Also standard is the water repellent nano-coating, while it is no means waterproof, it’s helpful against accidental splashes.

Pricing & Availability

The Moto Z and Moto Z Play are priced at RM2,699 and RM1,799 respectively. They are available on Lazada and 11street, and in retail stores.

Kick-starting the event was Lenovo’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Yang Yuanqing, who shared a future that’s shaped by 5 developing themes that will change the way people interact with technology. Lenovo went on to demonstrate just such a future with the launch of several breakthrough products and concepts.

Keynotes and Announcements


In Lenovo Chairman and CEO Yang Yuanqing’s keynote, he addressed five developing themes that will continue to change the way people use technology by connecting:

  1. 1. People to devices through natural interfaces – like using voice interaction, iris scanning, or writing with a pen on real paper, to communicate with your device.
  2. Devices to each other so that they can seamlessly work together on the same cloud service platform, to create a holistic experience, such as connecting household appliances together to intelligently manage the right home environment.
  3. Devices to the network, to ensure customers can always be seamlessly connected anywhere, anytime, at either the lowest fees or the highest speed – at your choice. In fact, this is what Lenovo’s MVNO business wants to achieve.
  4. Your device to your personal data, so you can not only easily retrieve your data, but the devices will also know your preferences to serve you better.
  5. Devices with apps and services to create one-stop experience for all your needs.
