Moto can’t lay claim to being the first in the modular smartphone game, that distinction would have to go to LG with its G5. However, I think it’s fair to say that the Moto Z and Moto Z Play with Moto Mods are at least well-executed, and paints a promising picture for the modular platform.
Revealed at its global launch at IFA 2016 just hours ago, the Moto Z is the top-of-the-line flagship smartphone from Moto. Moto Z Play, on the other hand is its lower-rung sibling, though no less impressive. The US-only Moto Z Force was mentioned, but not displayed during the launch. Note that ‘Droid’-edition Moto Z phones are exclusive to Verizon Wireless (well, not anymore, aside from the Moto Z Force).
