The Moto Z2 Force Has A Shatterproof Screen, Double Cameras and Flagship Specs

Moto Z Force was well known for its shatter proof display and stable performance that came with moto mod support to add modular parts to phone in a second. Yesterday. Lenovo launched the successor, Moto Z2 Force. The phone keeps some features from the last one, adds some new ones and carries the flagship prices just like Samsungs and Apples of the world.

The phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC paired with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB Storage. Z2 Force will run on Android 7.1 and the company promised that an update to Android O will be launched in future. The phone keeps last year’s 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED Display which is shatterproof, meaning it can easily take a beating without needing to be covered in a case. The phone looks almost similar to Z2 Force aside from its thickness.

The Z2 Force is a lot thinner than its predecessor and that is because Moto has decided to ditch the headphone jack. Yup, if you need a shatterproof phone and you want a Motorola one, get ready to join the #donglelife. Not only that, Moto Z2 Force has only 27,30 mAh battery compared to last year’s 3500 mAh. Personally, I think it’s sad to see a company like Moto designing for form over function because original Moto Z Force lasted for a long time on with its big battery.

In the optics department, the phone has two 12 megapixel cameras on the back one of them is the typical f/2.0 sensor while the other one is monochrome one although none of them have any optical stablization. Moto Z2 Force is certainly one of the expensive phones, the unlocked phone will be $720 in the US and it will be available on almost all carriers on market.

Moto G5S Plus will look a lot like the regular G5S with only differences in color and camera sensors. Plus is to come in full gold and gray, as well as white face/silver back and white face/gold back versions. The G5S Plus will sport a dual camera setup on the back as well, making this the first Moto device to do so along with including 1080p video recording and a dual-LED flash.

Both the G5S and G5S Plus will have a full-metal design, almost similar to the G5 and G5 Plus. giving a feel of high-end build quality. The front of G5S will have a 5.2-inch Full HD while G5S Plus will have a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display. G5S Plus will come with a 64-bit Octa-core processor possibly including Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 660 or 630 platforms in these new phones. We expect G5S and G5S Plus to have variants in 32 & 64 GB storage and  2 or 4 GB RAM, alongside with expandable memories using microSD cards. The company will probably pack a battery with a capacity of 2,800 mAh to 3,000 mAh which will be noticeably lower than recently launched Moto C.

When will these devices will be released, or how much they’ll cost are still not revealed. Being higher end models, we expect them to cost a bit more than the standard G5 and G5 Plus, going for £169/€199 and $229. Lenovo didn’t launch the Moto G5 in the United States, but only the G5 Plus. So there’s no guarantee that these devices will even come to the U.S. However, with those two high-end smartphones in market Lenovo jumps one step ahead to secure its coming pieces in this flagship.

The Upcoming Moto G5 Just Leaked, Here Are Specs and Photos

Now Lenovo owned mobile phone makes Motorola has been known for its G series. The mid-tier smartphones are knowns for the value for money and their clean and almost bloat-free software. The next phone in the series – the Lenovo Moto G5 – just leaked on a second-hand product selling site OLX.

The listing has been taken down since, but 9To5Google has reported about the device specs and some images of the upcoming Lenovo phone.

As the leak suggests, the Moto G5 will run on Snapdragon 625 processor and 4 GB RAM. To complement the RAM and processor, the phone will come with 32 GB of onboard storage and an expansion slot to insert microSD cards.

Just like last year, The G5 will have a 5.5″ 1080p display and an almost same capacity 3080mAh battery. Surprisingly, Lenovo is not jumping on board with USB-C ports this time as the phone comes with Micro USB port and a standard 3.5mm audio jack.

Apart from the above specs, the phone will have a 13 Megapixel rear autofocus camera and a 5 MP front camera for selfies. Regarding design, the phone borrows some elements from the company’s flagship Moto Z line with a circular flat tire camera bump and almost flat back except there is no fingerprint sensor on the back and it has a curve on the sides.

While Moto Z phones have been known for their modular features, it looks like none of the modularity features will be coming to the G5 as the phone has no pins on the back of the phone to connect with mods even through the camera bump is very similar to the Moto Z.

The device seller has marked March 2017 as the availability date so maybe the phones are coming sooner than we expected.

Lenovo’s Cool New Yoga Book Will Come with Chrome OS too

In case you missed it, Lenovo Yoga Book is a new typing, drawing and writing computer by the company. The laptop-tablet hybrid does not have any physical keyboard. Instead, the Yoga book comes with a virtual keyboard on a touch panel that you can even turn off to use the surface with a stylus to draw on the screen.

Initially, the Yoga Book was released in 2 variants, one with Windows 10 and another running Google Android. Now company’s Android and Chrome chief has confirmed to Laptop Magzine that the laptop will come with a Chrome OS version next year.

Yoga Book is unique because it is light weight, futuristic and practical at the same time. Just like other Yoga series laptops, you can flip the screen 360 degrees to use it as a tablet with its touch screen.

Now that Google has brought Android App Store to Chrome OS, it makes sense for OEMs to offer Chrome OS for devices sporting touch screens.

2016-12-18_20h50_19

The Chrome OS will need some modifications to work with the surface. It is almost sure that Lenovo will keep most of Yoga Book’s pen-based features untouched.

There is no word yet if users will be able to install Chrome OS on their Yoga Book if they got one with Android or Windows 10, but I assume that it won’t happen.
