Both Lenovo and Motorola have introduced new devices during the Lenovo Tech World 2016. Lenovo has hosted this event in San Francisco yesterday, and the company has unveiled the PHAB2, PHAB2 Plus and PHAB2 Pro smartphones. The PHAB2 Pro is the highest-end PHAB2 model, and it is also a ‘Tango’ AR smartphone. Motorola, on the other hand, has announced the Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones, while the company also showcased Moto Mods for those smartphones. That being said, we’ve already talked about length about each of these devices, but as it’s usually the case, additional info always tends to surface later on.
Motorola has released the full specs for the Moto Z and Moto Z Force during yesterday’s event. The company has listed a 2,600mAh battery for the Moto Z, and a 3,500mAh battery pack for the Moto Z Force. Now, having that in mind, the fine print on Motorola’s official site reveals something rather interesting, it basically says that the Moto Z battery is expected to last up to 30 hours in the U.S., Canada and Europe, and only 24 hours in the rest of the world. Now, that’s not the only difference, Motorola also talks about the TurboPower charger, and says that in 15 minutes of charging it can provide 8 hours of power in the U.S., Canada and Europe, while it will provide 7 hours of power after 15 minutes of charging in the rest of the world. This seems really odd, and quite probably means that the rest of the world will get smaller battery packs or something of the sort, because it’s hard to expect same battery packs and different battery life, it makes no sense. Either way, we’re waiting for Motorola to clarify this, that’s for sure.
Both Moto Z devices are made out of metal, and come with water-repellent nano-coating. The two devices are fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core SoC, and ship with 4GB of RAM. The Moto Z Force does offer a considerably larger battery pack though, as already mentioned, and it also ships with a 23-megapixel snapper, while the Moto Z comes with a 13-megapixel one. The two devices will become available starting from September, and Motorola will even offer an exclusive Verizon models (Moto Z Droid Edition and Moto Z Force Droid Edition) in the U.S.
