Android 7.0 Nougat Now Available On Moto Z

2 February 2017Moto Z (Amazon / Lazada) owners can expect the latest and sweetest update in the form of Android 7.0 Nougat; while Moto Z Play owners can expect the update notification later this month. These updates are part of Moto’s strategy of bringing the best new software and features to customers, and solidifies Lenovo’s commitment to the Moto brand and the Moto Mods-enabled Moto Z Family.

 

You Can Now Upgrade Your Moto Z to Android 7.0 Nougat

With the Android 7.0 Nougat update, Moto Z family (Amazon / Lazada) users will be able to make their devices more personal, more convenient and more customisable. Read on for a quick summary of what the Nougat update will offer.

Multi-Window View

Moto Z and Z Play (Amazon / Lazada) users will now enjoy the ultimate multitasking experience. With just a tap to the overview button, Nougat brings the ability to display two apps on the Moto Z and Z Play’s 5.5-inch Full HD screen at the same time. Now you can watch a movie while reading movie trivia on your browser, or keep an eye on where your car-sharing ride is, while texting your friends letting them know you’re on the way.

*Not all apps support multi-window view. The developer of the app needs to enable multi-window view.

Bundled Notifications and Direct Reply

Stay up to date with everything that’s going on with just a glance. Notifications are now grouped together when coming from the same app. This gives the user a more streamlined and visually pleasing experience when pulling down the notifications bar. On top of that, say goodbye to having to leave an app, just to reply to a text message. With Direct Reply, you can respond to messages within the notifications bar, letting you get back to what you were doing, without having to ever leave the app.

Enhanced Doze Mode

When you are not using your Moto Z or Z Play (Amazon / Lazada), Doze Mode will automatically kick in saving battery so that you’ll have enough to last later in the day. Doze Mode will now also work when you’re on the go, so don’t worry if your device is in your pocket or handbag – it’s still working to save battery.

Data Saver

[adrotate banner=”4″]

Battery is not the only thing the Nougat update will save. With Data Saver turned on, the apps running in the background will not be able to use mobile data. Saving data that is unnecessarily being spent means more data for your photo uploads to social media, and much more music and video streaming.

Custom Quick Settings

Added customisability means putting what you want, where you want them. With Nougat, you can rearrange the quick settings however you like. This allows you to change your desired setting quickly and conveniently with just a few taps.

Daydream Virtual Reality

Daydream by Google takes you on incredible adventures in virtual reality with your Moto Z (Amazon / Lazada). Moto Z is the perfect device for virtual reality, with its high resolution Quad HD display, high-powered processor and precise sensors. Nougat brings Daydream compatibility to the Moto Z (Amazon / Lazada). Daydream, Google’s VR platform, allows users to immerse themselves into all the experiences you love and aspire to do.

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.
