Lenovo unveiled the Moto Z line of smartphones in June, revealing a line of phones with 5.5 inch displays, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processors, and support for a series of modules called MotoMods that you can snap onto the back of the phone to add features like high-quality speakers or cameras, extended batteries, and more.
But it looks like there may also be a cheaper model on the way.
Details leaked ahead of the official Moto Z launch suggested there’d be a model with a less powerful processor, less RAM and storage, and a lower resolution display. Now it looks like model is on its way… to India, at least.
Code-named “Vertex,” the phone is expected to feature a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, a 3,500 mAh battery, and either 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage or 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
The phone, which also seems to have the model number XT1635, showed up recently at the Geekbench website, and the benchmark listing confirms the processor and some other specs.
Now the phone has also been listed at the Indian import website Zauba, which confirms that the phone has a 5.5 inch touchscreen display.
That suggests that the phone, which may be branded as the “Moto Z Play” in some markets could be available for purchase in India soon. It’s not clear if Lenovo-owned Motorola has any plans to offer the phones in other markets.
