Motorola is currently on its third-generation of Moto Z smartphones and the 2018 flagship is the new Moto Z3. The Moto Z3 still supports the growing family of Moto Mod accessories, and early next year it will be available with the 5G Moto Mod, making it one of the first smartphones on the market with 5G capabilities.  Whereas Motorola's previous generation Moto Z2 Force was priced at $720 unlocked, direct from Motorola when it launched last year, the Moto Z3 debuts at a much more palatable $480 as a Verizon Wireless exclusive. You can also pay for the device using... Read more...
Notched displays are sort of like Jason Vorhees, in that they keep on coming whether you want them to are not. There's no hiding from The Notch (cue the scary music). Even the budget smartphone market does not provide sanctuary from notched displays, as Motorola's new One and One Power phones make crystal clear. The Motorola One and One Power are a pair of Android One handsets. Android One, as you might recall, started off as an initiative focused on bringing lower cost smartphones to emerging markets "Our goal is to reach the next 5 billion people in the world," Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in...

When it comes to the shameless copying of competing smartphones, we don't often think of Motorola. However, the company's latest P30 smartphone is such a blatant copy of the iPhone X that we wonder what exactly was going on in Motorola's design studio.  From the front, the P30 shares much with the iPhone X including its wide and similarly-shaped display notch and trim bezels around the sides. The only place where the P30 really differs is at the bottom, where it has a larger bottom bezel to make way for the internal display connector. Out back, things are also eerily similar, with the same... Read more...
Google recently dished up a serving of Android 9 Pie to Pixel devices ahead of the mobile OS's anticipated August 20 release date. That means we will start to see third-party phones upgraded to the latest Android build. If you are wondering which devices will see an update, we can answer that question as it pertains to Motorola. The device maker confirmed in a blog post that Android 9 Pie is coming at least eight of its handsets. They include the Moto Z3, Moto Z3 Play, Moto Z2 Force Edition, Moto Z2 Play, Moto X4, Moto G6 Plus, Moto G6, and Moto G6 Play. There are all relatively newer handsets,... Read more...
Back in late June, we were alerted to a new product announcement on tap for August 2nd from Motorola. Luckily for us, we're here live in Chicago at Motorola HQ today to see what the company has in store for consumers, and it's quite interesting. The company launched the all-new Moto Z3, which serves as the follow-up to last year's Moto Z2. It has a 6-inch Full HD+ OLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio that takes up most of the front of the device. There are still notable bezels on the bottom and top, but it at least doesn't mar your viewing experience with a notch (if you’re not into... Read more...
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...
