Previously, an Android Police report made it abundantly clear that Lenovo wasn’t looking to kill the Moto X anytime soon. In an email sent out to them, Lenovo had clarified that the Moto Z was not born out of the killing of the Moto X but was a completely new device, with different experiences.
“Moto X is alive and well. In fact, Moto X Force recently launched in multiple new markets around the world. Moto X and Moto Z do share some great qualities, but they ultimately provide different experiences and make our portfolio more robust for consumers looking for the perfect smartphone to fit their needs. Tech-hungry consumers who are looking to get a brand new set of experiences from their smartphone will turn to Moto Z and Moto Mods,” said the email.
Lenovo recently launched the Moto Z and Moto Z Force at its Tech World conference in San Francisco. The phones are modular and support a wide range of customisable shells that the company calls as Moto Mods. The USP of these new Moto phones is their all-metal build and ridiculously slim physique. Also, these phones come with top-tier hardware, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 to name one. At the same time, Lenovo has ditched a regular 3.5mm audio jack on these smartphones and instead opted for a single USB Type-C solution.
