As confirmed by Lenovo, the company is all set to launch Moto Z smartphone along with the Moto Mods in India by October. The Moto Z, which is undoubtedly Motorola’s most exiting smartphone in recent years, features a 5.5-inch Q-HD (Quad-HD) AMOLED display that comes packed to the gills with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB RAM, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera with OIS and 4K recording, a 5 mega-pixel front shooter and a 2,600 mAh battery with Turbo Charging support.
The distinguishing feature of the Moto Z that makes the phone so exciting are the ‘Moto Mods’, the snap-on accessories that can be attached to the smartphone in order to increase its functionality. This is the second ‘modular’ phone after the recently launched ‘LG G5’, however, the Moto Z implementation is far more effective than that seen in the G5 in which the removal of a battery is necessary every time one wants to add an accessory.
These Moto Mods will also be available in India around the same times as that of the Moto Z launch. Three Moto Mods have been announced as of now – A mod by JBL to add powerful speakers, a mini projector by Pico and one by Motorola itself which extends the device’s battery life.
Aymar de Lencquesaing, the head of Lenovo’s global mobile business, confirmed that Moto Mods will be sold in India, with prices ranging from $50 to $200. Considering that $200 can buy you a solid smartphone in India, Lenovo has its work cut out.
Aymar also added, “We intend to continue to invest and grow our market share in India. We started early and started with online only. We now have nine percent market share and will now come offline as well”.
Finally, Lenovo confirmed that Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the first Tango phone, will be offered in India, without providing any details on its price or availability.
