Lenovo's Moto Z now available to buy for £499

Back in June, Lenovo launched the Moto Z, a truly modular phone featuring flagship specs and compatible with a range of accessories to let you do a lot more with your smartphone than you normally can.

Lenovo's Moto Z is now available to purchase in the UK at just £499.

Why the Moto Z is the modular phone the LG G5 couldn't be

You can purchase a Moto Z at Motorola's UK website at prices starting from £499. The pricing can vary depending on how you want your Moto Z to look like. Thanks to the MotoMaker feature on the website, you can choose between White and Fine Gold and Black and Lunar Grey colour options. The feature will also let you purchase MotoMods which are a range of accessories that will work with the phone. The pricing of available MotoMods is listed as under:

Incipio offGRID™ Power Pack: £59.99
JBL SoundBoost speaker:  £69.98
HasselBlad True Zoom camera:  £199.99
Moto Insta-share projector:  £249.98

You will also be able to choose among a range of Moto Style shells for the Moto Z which will be priced at £16 each and will be available in the coming weeks.

In terms of specifications, Lenovo's  Moto Z features a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 2,600 mAh battery, 13MP and 5MP cameras and 32GB of internal storage.

IFA 2016: Lenovo's Moto Z Play launch: All you need to know

Apart from the modular design, yet another pioneering feature of Moto Z is the absence of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Instead, you will need to use a separate Type-C connector to listen to music on the Moto Z. Recently, JBL launched a new headphone, named Reflect Aware C, which uses the Type-C port for both audio and power and gets charged by any smartphone it is connected with. Launched at the same time as the HTC 10, it will work with all premium smartphones and tablets with USB Type-C ports. You can either use JBL's Reflect Aware C or a Type-C connector which will be supplied by Lenovo along with the Moto Z.
