Although Lenovo is making all its efforts to deliver a high-end Moto smartphone that will compete with Galaxy S8 or iPhone 7, it doesn’t mean that the company forgot about more-budget conscious customers. To be honest, there are few mid-range phones which debut is just a matter of time. Yesterday, the Moto Z2 Force, E4 Plus, Moto C and C Plus have leaked out unveiling its whole beauty on a series of render images and a 360 degree videos.
Moto Z2 Force, E4 Plus and C and C Plus new pics and videos unveil design details.
Let’s begin with with the Moto Z2 Force. The phone apparently is a combination of the last year’s Moto Z and this year’s Moto G5, at least in terms of external design. However, there is one little thing that evokes fervent discussion among tech geeks, namely the reappearance of the 3.5 mm headphone jack, which was removed from the Moto Z model in 2016. It’s surely a good news for all those of us who resigned from the purchase of the last year’s model due to the lack of the port.
Considered ugly by some the ‘caps’ visible at the top and bottom parts of the last year’s Moto Z have been replaced by a thin band that goes around the device. This solution is supposed to deliver better radio signal access four antennas hidden inside the handset. Sprint will surely try to use these antennas to bring Cat.16 download speeds to the phone. This in turn allow us to assume that, unlike its predecessor, the Moto Z2 Force won’t be a Verizon exclusive offering, which is a good thing.
Furthermore, the Moto Z2 Force is rumored to run the Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 and feature a dual camera setup with a dual-LED flash on the front. Measuring 156.32 x 76.36 mm the phone will house a 5.5-inch screen panel and support a redesigned fingerprint scanner for advanced data security. Although the handset is slight bigger than its predecessor, its 5.99 mm profile is visibly slimmer than the 7 mm one found in the 2016 release.
Switching to the low- to mid-end handsets: Moto E4, Moto E4 Plus, Moto C and Moto C Plus, the CAD render pics and a 360-degree video disperse all doubts regarding the devices. The E4 Plus will provide users with a generous 5,000 mAh battery, quite slim profile, front fingerprint scanner and a 5.2-inch display sporting 2.5G curved glass and user-replaceable black plates. Meanwhile, the more entry level Moto C and C Plus will be extremely pocket-friendly devices with their pricing ranging round $100. But this really low pricing comes at the cost of extremely archaic specs.
As for availability and pricing details, we still wait for Lenovo’s official confirmation. At this point we can’t even tell when exactly the rumored devices will make its debut.
