Lenovo Group launches mobile phone
Lenovo Group Ltd launched its flagship Moto Z series modular handset in Beijing, to compete with Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in the premium-end market.
The modular smartphone, which is only 5.2 mm thick, has high-powered magnets on its rear with which users can fasten additional equipment, including a Hasselblad camera, an extra battery, speaker, projector and phone shell.
“Moto Z undoubtedly will lead the industry change and redefine the smartphone product,which is also the most representative device after Lenovo acquired Motorola Mobility,” said Yang Yuanqing, Lenovo chairman and CEO.
Yang added the smartphone products now lack innovative abilities, and they look and operate just the same as they have for many years.
“The concept and design of the modular smartphone involves more functions and applications and expands the development space for smartphones.”
