Mark your calendars for August 2nd; that's when Motorola is set to announce its newest product. We're not quite sure what Motorola has in store, but the company wants you to say "hello" to a "whole new way to connect, stream, download, video chat, and more." When we think of Motorola, we primarily think of Android-based smartphones, but could this be something entirely different? Perhaps it’s a streaming settop box that has a camera accessory for chatting? Perhaps it’s an AI assistant cut from the same cloth as the Alexa-powered Amazon Echo Show? Or maybe, it's simply Motorola's latest... Read more...
Amazon is adding two new devices to its Prime Exclusive Phones lineup, and both come from Motorola (a subsidiary of Lenovo). The Moto Z3 Play and Moto G6 Play will both be available starting June 29th unlocked out of the box. The Moto G6 Play is the more affordable entry, priced at just $189.99. In return, you get a 5.7-inch 1440x720 display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. You can always expand your storage, however, thanks to a microSD slot which supports up to 128GB cards. A 13MP camera is found on the back of the... Read more...
Motorola knows a thing or two about long battery life in smartphones, especially when leveraging its mods, and specifically its Battery Moto Mod. Well, that is again the case with the introduction of the Moto Z3 Play. Motorola's newest Z device takes aim at the mid-range of the mobile market mixed with premium features and mod support, including a battery mod that extends battery life up to 40 hours. Customizing your smartphone to match your own wants and needs is more accessible thanks to Moto Z3 Play + Moto Mod bundles. Whether you’re looking for more power—up to 40 hours of combined...

The image you see here is alleged to be a new Motorola smartphone that will run the streamlined Android One operating system. The device is called the Motorola One Power and is expected to land with the stylized moniker "motoralone Power". One glance at the smartphone and you can see that Motorola is following Apple's iPhone X and other Android device makers down the screen display notch road. For now, this is the only way to get the speaker, sensors, and cameras into the front of the device dominated by a screen. Despite the notch at the top, there is still a largish  bezel...

What looks to be an official press render of the unreleased Moto Z3 Play has emerged, and with it comes confirmation a few details. For one, we can see a dual camera arrangement on the back of the handset. That has become a common feature on newer smartphones, and is notable in this instance because it's a departure from the design of the current generation Moto Z2 Play, which sports a single rear-mounted camera. Image Source: AndroidHeadlines While the specs have not been confirmed, rumor has it the dual cameras consist of a 12-megapixel shooter paired with an 8-megapixel sensor. One of the benefits...

While we've seen plenty of action at the flagship level when it comes to the 2018 class of smartphones, we haven't seen much activity in the entry-level and mid-range sectors. Thankfully, Motorola hasn't forgotten about consumers that don't want to spend $700+ on a new smartphone. With that in mind, Motorola has unleashed a number of new smartphones in the Moto G6 and Moto E5 product families. On the Moto G6 side of things, we have the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play. The Moto G6 comes with a 5.7-inch Full HD display (2160x1080) and an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor. You'll... Read more...
Motorola has been banging out add-ons called "Moto Mods" for its Moto Z phones, such as an enhanced smart speaker with Amazon Alexa integration, a pico projector, and a 360-degree camera. For its next trick, Motorola appears to be launching a virtual reality headset that is akin to Samsung's Gear VR and Google's Daydream View, but most likely built for Daydream VR in Android and marketed as a Moto Mod. The infamous inside man Evan Blass (otherwise known as @evleaks on Twitter) posted a couple of press renders of the upcoming VR headset and retail packaging. There are no details to go along with...

We haven't heard much recently from Motorola with respect to new smartphones, but that will likely change over the next few months. A massive leak has sprung in the HMS Motorola, and with it comes some details on the Moto Z3, Moto X5 and Moto G6 product families. Kicking things off is the Moto Z3 series. The Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play are said to features 6-inch FHD+ displays (18:9 aspect ratio) that include subtle curves along the sides (a la the Galaxy S8). There will also be a third Moto Z3 variant that will arrive at a later date with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 in tow -- perhaps this will be the... Read more...
Motorola announced a few months ago that it was planning to roll out the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, Android 8.0 Oreo, to several of its handsets. Making good on that promise, some Moto Z2 Force owners on T-Mobile have received the over-the-air update, joining their Moto Z2 Force brethren on Verizon, who recently began receiving the tasty upgrade. A user on the XDA Developers forum uploaded a handful of screenshots showing the update. It is labeled as build number OCX27 and clocks in at nearly a 1GB (937.5MB, to be precise), so keep that in mind if you are on a data restriction... Read more...
If you've been following the tech world over the past two weeks, Apple hasn't had this much negative attention aimed at its products since the MacBook Pro battery life fiasco stirred by Consumer Reports, or perhaps the iPhone 4 "Antennagate". Apple's decision to throttle older iPhones with degraded batteries -- while not informing customers of the practice -- has invited swift backlash. Not surprisingly, some of Apple's competitors are latching on to its misery, while at the same time reassuring current -- and potentially, future -- customers that they would never use such secretive tactics. The... Read more...
Back in the day, the way most people took photos was with a Polaroid instant camera of the sort that shot pictures out the front for you to watch develop before your eyes. That good old shake and wait just a minute Polaroid almost instant gratification is making a bit of a comeback with some retro photography fans, but today most people take pictures with their smartphones. Today, however, Motorola has unveiled a new Moto Mod for the Moto Z family of smartphones that is called the Polaroid Insta-Share Printer, that could offer the best of both worlds. Motorola writes, "Simply snap the... Read more...
Motorola has made modular smartphones "hip" thanks to its Moto Z family. The original Moto Z, along with its Moto Z2 Force successor, supports Motorola's Moto Mods systems, which allows you to attach various accessories to the back of your smartphone ranging from speakers to cameras to battery extenders. Today Motorola has announced a new addition: the Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa. Rather than integrating Amazon Alexa directly into the smartphone hardware and the Android operating system, the Moto Smart Speaker is its own self-contained device. Think of it as a miniature Amazon Echo that... Read more...
The cat was first let out of the bag earlier this month that Motorola would bring the Moto X4 to the United States as the country's first Android One device. Today, Google confirmed that news and announced that the Moto X4 will be available via its Project Fi wireless service. What makes this Android One Moto X4 different is the fact that it runs the Android One operating system, which Google says offers a "pure Android experience". You won't find any extra Motorola software installed on the device, nor will you find any bloatware Although the Android One Moto X4 will come from the factory with... Read more...
It has been about a month since Google released Android 8.0 Oreo and now the wait is on for Android device owners to receive the update. Unfortunately for Moto G4 owners, there is a cloud of uncertainty that hangs over their handset. This is despite Motorola's previous promise that the Moto G4 would see an upgrade to Oreo. Motorola made the promise when launching the Moto G4. At the time, Motorola advertised that "Moto Pure phones like the Moto G4 Plus will get upgraded to Android operating system versions N and O." At the very least, Motorola should be committed to rolling out an Android 8.0 Oreo... Read more...
