Moto to Stick with X, G, and E Series Devices
Lenovo executives today said the company plans to continue making its current lineup of handsets, called the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto E. It believes firmly in targeting the high-, mid-, and low-end segments to meet the varied needs of different markets. Lenovo developed the new Moto Z phones based on the X, but the company will still carry the X series forward. Lenovo implied the next version of the X may include features found on the new Z phones.
The Moto Z3 is the first 5G-upgradable phone thanks to a forthcoming Mod from Motorola and Verizon. This mid-range device sports a 2:1 screen, metal-and-glass design, and compatibility with Motorola's ecosystem of swappable modules.
Moto's new g-series phones bring up-to-date features, upgraded specs, and clean Google software to three models ranging from $200 to $300. This year's series moves to a notched-screen design, steps up to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, and supports USB-C across the board.
The latest entry in Motorola's Moto Z series of devices is the Z3, a thin slab that's compatible with Moto Mods modular attachments. The Z3 is an improved version of the Z3 Play thanks to a better processor and camera configuration.
Motorola's third-generation Z Play brings the series up to speed with its competition. This mid-range Android phone switches to a 2:1 screen shape and offers a fingerprint reader and face unlock for security.
