Lenovo had introduced quite a few devices this year, and their most notable announcements are probably the Moto Z and Moto Z Force handsets. These two phones were introduced by the company back in June during Lenovo’s Tech World event in San Francisco. The Moto Z and Moto Z Force are quite compelling smartphones, which offer a rather interesting design, while the phones are also compatible with Moto Mods, the company’s new accessories, some of which are quite powerful, like Hasselblad’s camera Moto Mod, an accessory we’ve reviewed recently. The Moto Z Play, unlike the two aforementioned devices, had arrived last month, and this is a mid-range smartphone, not the flagship Moto offering. The Moto Z Play is, much like the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, compatible with Moto Mod accessories.
That being said, all three of these devices have been available in specific regions for a while now, but they have not been available in Lenovo’s homeland, China. Well, the company has unveiled the Moto Z and Moto Z Play in China, while the Moto Z Force is nowhere to be found. The Moto Z costs 3,999 Yuan ($599) in the country, while you can purchase the Moto Z Play for 3,299 Yuan ($494). The two devices are already available for purchase in China through various online and offline stores. Now, in addition to the Moto Z and Moto Z Play, the company has also announced that various Moto Mods are coming to China. The JBL Speaker Mod will cost 699 Yuan ($105), while the Projector Mod will set you back 1,999 Yuan ($299). The 2,220mAh Battery Mod costs 499 Yuan ($75), while the Hasselblad Camera Mod gets a price of 2,299 Yuan ($344).
The Moto Z features a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage (only the 64GB model will be available in China it seems). The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 820 SoC, and a 2,600mAh battery is available on the inside. The phone sports a 13-megapixel OIS snapper on the back, while you’ll be able to find a 5-megapixel camera up front. The Moto Z Play also comes with a 5.5-inch panel, but unlike Moto Z’s display, this is a fullHD Super AMOLED panel. The Moto Z Play packs in 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, a 3,510mAh battery, and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on both of these phones, and they’re quite similar on the outside actually.
