Lenovo came to IFA with a sole purpose of mesmerizing the audience with their exciting new devices. And they succeeded in doing that, with some more than interesting laptop models and one intriguing smartphone. Here are the highlights from their press conference, hosted yesterday.
Moto Z Play
Although Lenovo already revealed two stars of this years’ Motorola lineup, Moto Z, and Moto Z Force, both models being incredibly powerful devices, along with ultra-thin body and a modular system consisting of accessories called Moto Mods, there is one member of the family left on the side.
But now, at IFA, Motorola revealed the third member of its Moto Z family, Moto Z Play. Moto Z Play kept the same gorgeous Moto Z design, along with the 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2 gigs of RAM, Snapdragon 625 chipset, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, a huge 3510 mAh battery, and a 3.5mm headphone jack! No Snapdragon 820, huge amounts of RAM and a 1440p display, because Moto Z Play will sport a price of $400, much lower than Moto Z’s $700 price tag. Moto Z Play will sell in the US under the mane “Moto Z Play Droid,” will launch next month and will (initially) be a Verizon exclusive.
