Here is good news for tech lovers that Lenovo, the owners of Motorola brand, are all set to launch their flagship Motorola Moto Z in Pakistan. The exciting part of this news lies in the availability of famous Moto Mods along with Moto Z. The new gadget offers a water repellent and premium metallic design and doesn’t back away on the specs either.

Features

Moto Z comes with a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display at QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. On the inside it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage. The storage is expandable via a microSD card of up to 256GB in size.

The primary camera employs a 13 MP sensor with laser/phase-detection Autofocus, OIS and a dual tone LED flash. The front camera uses a 5 MP sensor with a wide angle lens and an LED flash.

The Moto Mods

What makes this phone special are the Moto Mods, adding a touch of modularity to an otherwise sleek looking phone. The Moto Mods attach to the back of the phone using the contacts at the bottom. They come in different flavors like a battery mod or a camera mod to enhance those features.

Battery

Battery might be subpar for a phone of this caliber with a measly 2,600 mAH unit. The large screen size and resolution (2560 x 1440) make the battery life even worse. Moto Z however does support Turbo fast charging technology to make up for it somewhat. And you can always use the Battery mod to nearly double the battery life without adding much to the phone’s waistline.

Availability

Lenovo announced previously that it was going to launch its flagship Moto Z series in Pakistan soon. For now only Moto Z has been confirmed for launch around February 17th. The other two models, Moto Z Play and Moto M have not been announced yet.

Price

Moto Z will cost Rs. 75,000 with the Moto Mods pricing announced at a later date.
