Motorola Says Moto X Series Isn't Dead; Moto Z Play Gets Leaked
  • Moto X series is 'alive and well', said Motorola.
  • Moto Z Play is expected to be announced soon.
  • New Pro Camera, Adventure Moto Mods were also tipped.

Motorola announced the Moto Z and Moto Z Force in its new Z series, at the Lenovo Tech World last week with much fanfare. This was widely expected to be the death of the X series, and the rise of the Z. However, Motorola has now announced that it has not killed the Moto X line-up, and the series is 'alive and well'.

The company told Android Police that the Z series will offer a completely different experience, with its Moto Mods accompaniments. "Moto X is alive and well. In fact, Moto X Force recently launched in multiple new markets around the world. Moto X and Moto Z do share some great qualities, but they ultimately provide different experiences and make our portfolio more robust for consumers looking for the perfect smartphone to fit their needs. Tech-hungry consumers who are looking to get a brand new set of experiences from their smartphone will turn to Moto Z and Moto Mods," the company stated.

Furthermore, there is a separate leak that gives more clarity on the Moto Z Play. The variant was heavily rumoured for an unveil at the Lenovo Tech World, but instead we saw the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. However, helloMotoHK has leaked images online, hinting that the Moto Z Play is incoming in the future. The tipster also revealed that there are two new Moto Mods in the making, namely - Pro Camera Mod, and Adventure Mod.


The images reveal that the Pro Camera Mod will come with a new camera lens supporting 10x optical zoom, f/3.4-5.6 aperture, and a xenon flash. The Adventure Mod will turn the Moto Z into a waterproof smartphone. Previous rumours suggest that the Moto Z Play is expected to sport a 5.5-inch full-HD display, a Snapdragon 625 SoC, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 16GB and 32GB storage variants, 3500mAh battery, and 7mm thickness.
