The 5.5-inch Motorola Vertex handset that has been recently spotted on Zauba could soon launch as a more affordable member of the Moto Z lineup.

Motorola's Moto Z lineup arrived last month on the market with 5.5-inch displays, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors and - most important part of it all - support for modules known as Moto Mods. This way, the new Motorola handsets become direct competitors for the LG G5 with its modular design.

Recent rumors claimed that a cheaper Moto Z with less memory and storage space, as well as a slower processor, is also in the making. This new handset would also use a 5.5-inch display, but with a reduced resolution. Now, the Motorola Vertex has just been spotted on Zauba. The device, known as Motorola Vertex, has also shown up at Geekbench. Some of its alleged features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 2 GB RAM/16 GB storage or 3 GB RAM/32 GB storage.

The Motorola Vertex handset is also known as XT1635 and is expected to hit the market (at least some of them, since it would not be the first time for the same Motorola device to be available under different names) as Moto Z Play. All these should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being, but we will get back to the upcoming Moto Z Play as soon as we find out anything new.

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.
