Moto Z Likely to Come With A Super Slim Body, New Renders Reveal 16 pin Connector

Lenovo owned Motorola is expected to announce the brand new Moto Z smartphone series tomorrow. For some reason, this year’s Moto flagship range has been renamed from Moto X to Moto Z and we can expect a couple of devices to debut tomorrow. While we have been hearing about the phone for the past few weeks, now, new renders of the Moto Z have just been leaked online, revealing the phone’s back design with the 16 pin connector.

First of all, a leaked teaser reveals that the Moto Z will be thin. You can clearly see that the camera sensor will be protruding from the body. Also, there are three buttons on the right, one should be the power button and the other two should be the volume up and down keys.

Apart from this, we also have a render, which shows off the back of the new Moto Z in three colors, namely black, silver and gold. This image reveals the huge size of the camera module at the back. Further, down below, on the back panel we also see the much talked about 16 pin connector for attaching modules. Just below that should be the speaker opening.

According to the latest rumors, the 16 pin connector will be used to connect MotoMods, for adding new features to the device. While this isn’t completely a modular design, it still would be quite impressive if we could swap out different modules on the back of the phone for different functions like Hi-Fi or Video controls, similar to LG G5’s design. Hopefully, we will get to hear more about it tomorrow at the launch event.

As for the specs, like last year, this time, Motorola is expected to release two variants of the Moto Z, namely Moto Z Play and Moto Z Style. The Z Play will be the less powerful variant and should come with Snapdragon 625 octa-core chip, 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB / 3GB of RAM, 16GB / 32GB storage options, 7mm body, 16MP rear camera and 3500mAh battery.

Coming to the Moto Z Style, it should come with a 5.5-inch 2K display, with Snapdragon 820 chip, 3GB / 4GB RAM options, 32GB internal storage, 13MP rear camera with OIS, 2600mAh battery and a super thin 5.2mm body.

We also should see Motorola’s Project Tango device soon, which could be called as the Lenovo PHAB2 Pro. You can read more about that from here.
