Motorola fans are eagerly waiting for the Motorola 2016 phones to be revealed. Fortunately, it seems that their dreams will soon come true. Lenovo (which acquired Motorola from Google in 2014) has announced that they will be holding their strategic technology #LenovoTechWorld on June 9 in San Francisco, adding that they’ll be announcing a “new mobile technology designed by Motorola”. Many tech experts say that this technology refers to the newest Motorola phones.
Lenovo hasn’t revealed any details about their latest Moto by Lenovo phones, but there are rumors floating around about these models. Some of these rumors come from leaked images, which give us an idea of what these devices would look like and how they’d function.
One of these images, which is leaked by Google Plus user HellloMotoHK, shows two models that have placed side by side. One unit has a white body while the other has a black body, but they look so similar to each other that they seem to be of the same variant. However, as known leakster Evan Blass writes in VentureBeat, these are two different models: the white unit is known as Vertex while the other is called Vector Thin.
Even though they look alike, each model reportedly has different specs. The Vector Thin, which is thought to be the higher-end model, will have a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 3GB or 4GB RAM, and 32GB storage capacity. It will also have a Quad HD resolution screen and a 13MP camera sensor with optical image stabilization. It’s said to be only 5.2mm thin (hence its name), although its thinness comes with a price since it will have a relatively small 2600mAh battery.
The Vertex, meanwhile, will reportedly be a lower-spec model, although it will still have impressive features. It’s said to have a Snapdragon 625 processor, a 2GB or 3GB RAM, and either 16GB or 32GB storage, with a Full HD screen and a 16MP camera sensor. The Vertex is thicker than its higher-end sibling at 7mm, although it makes up for this by having a bigger 3500mAh battery.
Despite these differences, the two models are expected to both have 5.5-inch AMOLED screens. Both of them will also reportedly have connection pins in the back that allow users to easily snap on modules to the units. These modules range from simple colored backplates to more complicated (and useful) ones like battery packs and stereo speakers. If these modules turn out to be real, they’ll definitely make the Vertex and the Vector Thin a force to be reckoned with and an instant favorite among tech enthusiasts.
