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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
