Codrut Nistor,

Modular phones are surely one of the big things to hit the market by the end of the year, and the LG G5 flagship will soon have to face some serious competition from the Lenovo Moto Z. While LG calls the modules for its flagship "friends," the Moto Z simply has "Moto Mods" but both are the same thing - modules that extend the capabilities of the handset they are attached to.

The highlights of the new Moto Z include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage and microSD support for up to 2 TB of additional space. The "razor thin" handset has a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, a 13 MP main camera with OIS and laser autofocus, as well as a 5 MP camera for selfies. Its maker promises up to 30 hours of autonomy on a single charge, as well as Turbo Charging.

The Moto Z handsets that will hit the US exclusively via Verizon Wireless this summer are the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid. Unlocked versions and global availability are expected in September. We will get back to them once we find out anything about the launch date and prices, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
