Lenovo has hosted a press conference in San Francisco today, the Lenovo Tech World 2016. During the keynote, Lenovo introduced three new ‘PHAB2’ devices, including the ‘Tango’ PHAB2 Pro phablet. Now, as you all know, Motorola is owned by Lenovo, so they had plenty to say as well. Motorola has introduced the Moto Z and Moto Z Force devices during the keynote, and we’re here to take a closer look at the Moto Z specifications, read on.
The Motorola Moto Z is made out of metal, to be more precise, it is made out of aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel.

The device is fueled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor, the most powerful mobile SoC out there at the moment, next to Samsung’s Exynos 8890. The 13-megapixel OIS camera (f/1.8 aperture, Laser Autofocus, Zero Shutter Lag, CCT Flash, 1.12um pixel size) is placed on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper (f/2.2 aperture, 1.4um pixel size) features a wide-angle lens, and is flanked by an LED flash. Moto Z’s body is water-repellant, it ships with a water-repellant coating, which means that rain and splashes won’t do it any harm whatsoever.
