Lenovo launched the much awaited Moto Z Series in India on Oct. 4th, the same day when Google announced their first ever Pixel phones. While the Pixel phones went on pre-order on Flipkart since 13th October and are said to be shipped from 24th October, the new Moto devices will go directly on sale in India starting today midnight. Moto Z, Moto Z Play and four functional Moto Mods (sold separately) will be available for order on Flipkart and Amazon.
Moto Z, the said flagship of the year from Moto sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset. Even though the chipset already exists in quite a few other flagships, Moto is sort of late to launch their flagship this year. However, it will be very interesting to see the slimmest Android phone from Moto at just 5.2mm thickness. Moto is also known to provide near stock Android experience without bloatware and add some software functions that improve the experience. Also, to mention the design is heavily refreshed and now sports glass on the back with metal sides making it look and feel premium.
