there’s not much that we don’t now know about the moto e4, assuming the rumors all prove accurate, but until today one thing that was still up in the air was the launch date.now, we might know that too, as leaker roland quandt posted on twitter that it “supposedly ships” on july 17.that would make sense, given that the moto e3 launched in july 2016, though the moto z2 is rumored to land on june 8 and it seems a bit odd to launch the new phones a month apart – either leaving a bigger gap or launching them at the same time would surely make more sense, so we wouldn’t totally rule out a june launch for the moto e4 (or a july launch for the moto z2).specs and prices tooalongside the date, quandt also posted a detailed specs list, there’s not really anything here that hasn’t bee...

we’ve already seen supposed pictures of the moto z2 play and moto z2 force, but now it’s time for another member of the family. android authority has obtained the image above, believed to depict the moto z2, from a reliable source familiar with lenovo’s plans.this device was hinted at back in early april by leaker evan blass, but clear images of the unit have been hard to come by — while others have been ostensibly debunked.from the front, the handset appears to share much in common with the alleged moto z2 play seen below (via techno buffalo), with the same sensor positions, fingerprint scanner location and side buttons. though the differences between the moto z and moto z play from last year are far more distinct, it seems lenovo has a number of upcoming devices that share ...

alongside the standard moto z2 and lower-end moto z2 play, we’re expecting a moto z2 force to launch later this year, and we’ve just had one of our closest looks yet.shown off below in a render obtained by android authority, the image shows a phone with a dual-lens camera at the top and a moto mods connector at the bottom, along with what appears to be a slightly different colored band around the edge of the phone, likely to help improve signal.around the front meanwhile there’s a sizeable bezel below the screen, complete with a home button and what's likely a fingerprint scanner.it's a matchthere’s nothing here that we haven’t seen before in previously leaked images, but this latest render completely lines up with them, so it may well be accurate.and elsewhere we have heard more...

motorola canada has officially confirmed that it will be launching its “next bold phone” on june 1. unfortunately, not much else was revealed. moto/lenovo has certainly been working hard on a handful of smartphone releases including an alleged return of the moto x series.whether the phone to be announced will be the moto x or moto z2 remains to be known. the date of june 1 lines up with another leak that claims the same day for a brazilian launch of the z2 play. so at this point, we could very well expect to see the z2 play, and maybe the z2 force as well.we’ve already seen some other rumors like leaked presentation slides, renders or live photos. stay tuned for more moto coverage!source | via...

there has been something of an internal struggle since lenovo first acquired motorola mobility back in 2014. motorola obviously has a storied history in the mobile space, having played a huge role in inventing the cell phone as well as in popularizing the device category with product lines like startac and razr. when it was acquired by lenovo, however, moto’s new parent company seemed unsure of exactly how to position motorola in the market, and its branding and messaging have been confusing ever since.in 2017, lenovo seems to have finally realized that there is still tremendous value in the motorola brand. the company’s new advertising campaigns bring back the famous motorola slogan, “hello moto.” what’s more, the motorola name will rise again after lenovo tried to bury it over ...
