Motorola Moto Z with Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Quad-Core CPU, 4GB RAM, and 32GB of Storage

Following the appearances of Lenovo's new line of Phab smartphones, Motorola surprisingly brought out their very own Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 powered phones, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. These new 5.5-inch handsets will be joining the standard version of Sony Xperia X, Samsung Galaxy S7 Active Edition, and the 5.7-inch Asus ZenFone 3 Deluxe for the same 64-bit chip.

Moto Z is the standard and flag bearer of Motorola. According to reports, there will be two variants for this base handset, it is expected to come in either 32GB or 64GB model (in terms of storage capacity). There might be a few changes in CPU as well to memory sizes base on its availability in the global market.

Furthermore, aside from the above mentioned brands with the same line of quad-core chip, Moto Z will also compete to ZTE Axon 7 and other elegant Chinese brands. And this will be the most exciting part of the upcoming wide-range of competition.

To know more about the other specs of Moto Z, see the following table below:

For now, there is no words for any available prices of this model. But because of its underlying specs, as I compare Moto Z with other brands of the same CPU, price tags will probably start at about $280 and up. That will vary according to buyer's selected configuration in memory size and storage capacity.

And it is also expected to bump with another 5.5-inch Asus ZenFone 3 (standard model) as well to Umi Touch and OnePlus 2 brands. I never heard of anything unique about the Moto Z except for its rugged version and elegant case from reviews. Its 2600mAh built-in battery is lower compared to other Android smartphones with more than 3000mAh or 4000mAh capacity.

As a prospect buyer, you may choose to own a power bank for additional cost along with Moto Z to have a long-lasting battery performance.
