Moto Z and Moto Z Force are cutting edge smartphones featuring an all metal design, great low light camera performance, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor and Moto TurboPower charging. Moto Z is the world's thinnest premium smartphone and Moto Z Force brings the added benefits of Moto Shattershield – guaranteeing the display will not to crack or shatter.

Combined with our all new Moto Mods, you can transform your Moto Z into exactly what you need it to be in a snap, whether it’s an instant party maker with the JBL(R) SoundBoost or a 70-inch movie projector with the Moto Insta-Share Projector. There’s also the Power Pack, which instantly adds 22 hours of life to your phone – and it comes in fashionable designs from partners like kate spade new york and TUMI.

High-powered magnets connect Moto Mods to your phone so you can easily snap them together as your needs change. Plus, with the Moto Mods Developer Program, you can develop the next generation of Moto Mods. The Lenovo Capital Fund will be setting aside seed funding to spur innovation on the Moto Mods platform. It has set aside $1,000,000 for the individual or company that creates the best Moto Mods prototype by March 31, 2017.

World’s first tango-enabled AR smartphone

Lenovo revealed the first consumer smartphone powered by Tango technology, a set of sensors and software from Google that senses and maps its surroundings to make a host of cutting-edge smartphone augmented reality (AR) experiences possible.

This flagship device represents our combined efforts to promote mass acceptance for Tango, a technology that promises to become as prevalent as GPS. PHAB2 Pro transforms how we interact with our surroundings by enabling mobile devices to detect their position relative to the world around them, unlocking AR experiences via customized apps.

PHAB2 Pro uses three core technologies – motion tracking, depth perception and area learning – to sense its surroundings, enabling experiences ranging from AR gaming to virtual object placement. For example, with Tango technology PHAB2 Pro can begin to change the way people think about mapping indoor spaces to create new experiences like future AR museum tours via the GuidiGO app.

“The power of connectivity is transforming the PC from personal computing to CC – connected computing,” said Yang, CEO, Lenovo. “We’re helping lead this transformation by combining our expertise in hardware innovation with the critical backend cloud platform to help devices listen, see, sense and understand the world. Launching groundbreaking products like the PHAB2 Pro with Google’s Tango technology and Moto’s new Z Series smartphones with Mods in the heart of Silicon Valley shows we’re committed to this strategic technology direction.”

“The data center is set to become the foundation of an interconnected world. The explosion of data created from billions of devices and endpoints requires next-generation IT to deliver on its promise. Companies usually don’t set out to build IT infrastructure to reach their business objectives but, increasingly, they are looking to an automated, software-powered infrastructure to help them simplify their operations and deliver true business agility,” said Sindhu. – TradeArabia News Service
