Moto Z Tipped to Get Hasselblad Camera Mod Soon

Moto Z Tipped to Get Hasselblad Camera Mod Soon

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Leak suggests module will carry a Hasselblad branding
  • Camera module expected to be launched next week at IFA
  • Camera module tipped to have a 10X optical zoom

When Moto Z was about to be launched, there was an excitement around the smartphone less because of the actual hardware specifications on it and more because of the swappable mods that could enhance the utility of the device manifolds. As the various mods were introduced, the anticipated camera module was found missing. If we go by the latest leaks, it seems like the module might finally be coming to Moto Z- that too in partnership with one of the most legendary professional camera makers in the world, Hasselblad.

Leaked images posted by fan site Moto G3 suggest that the much awaited camera module will not only come with a Hasselblad branding, but will also feature a powerful 10X optical zoom lens that will ensure that your images look sharp despite zooming in from a long range.

Even though there is no information regarding the sensor on the camera mod, because of its small size, the Hasselblad’s signature medium format sensor probably won’t make it to the Moto Mod. The images include promotional material, which point to a Xenon flash, Raw format option, and automatic backup feature. A live photo shows f/3.5-f/6.5 aperture range, and a 4.5-45mm focal range.

According to the report, the module can be expected to be launched at IFA event in Germany, which starts September 2. Despite no leak regarding the price of the camera module, the Hasselblad branding suggests that the addition might not come in cheap.

x

Based on the focal length, the report speculates the use of a 1/1.7 to 1/2-inch sensor like in some of the premium compact cameras, giving a field of view close to a 21mm to 24mm lens on a full-frame camera. As with every other leak, we will have to wait till the actual announcement by the company for an official confirmation.

The Redmi Notice 3 excels in the performance and display branch.
The Zuk Z1 trumps the others with a higher digicam and battery existence.
You’ll in most cases emerge as with the Moto as the others may be long past in a flash.

Design
Design is some thing it is very subjective and differs wildly but after using all 3 smartphones we’d have togo together with the Moto G4 Plus. It is the lightest and the slimmest the various 3 and plenty simpler to grip because of the rubber back. Motorola hasn’t compromised on the construct even though as it Alsohas a metal frame for pressure. the opposite two Additionally look precise and have metal builds butthey are not the maximum ergonomic when as compared to the Moto.

Winner – Moto G4 Plus

display
The excellent of the display is one of the vital elements as it‘s your simplest approach of interacting with your smartphone. All three telephones have 5.5-inch complete-HD presentations with scratch protection, which manage to provide sharp visuals. But, Xiaomi’s Daylight display hardware characteristic nudges itbeyond the opposite . The brightness ranges aren’t super at the Z1 although it does function a polarising coating to atone for that. The Moto G4 Plus is available in a close 2d despite having a everydayTFT display rather than IPS.

Software program
All 3 telephones excel within the Software branch with each Xiaomi and the Lenovo Zuk bringing specificversions of Android, so Selecting one relies upon on the form of consumer you’re.

Xiaomi’s MIUI 7 Also gives lots of customisation, although in all likelihood not as full-size as Cyanogen. But, it does have one very usefulfunction which the others lack and that’s the capability to lock apps in your fingerprint, so handiestyou’ve got get right of entry to to them.

All three phones have 3GB RAM (despite the fact that you can get the 2GB versions of the Redmi Word three and G4 Plus for a chunk much less) andenormous onboard storage. Remember the fact that the Z1 compensates for the dearth of a microSD card slot with 64GB of storage. The Redmi Word 3 has a hybrid SIM slot however the legitimate expandablegarage aid is just 32GB. The Moto G However has a dedicated slot with an legit score of 128GB.

All 3 phones will easily cope with traumatic apps and video games, although we did word the Motoreceives warm as an alternative speedy while as compared to the alternative . Considering the overall performance of the interface, apps, fingerprint senor and connectivity functions, the Redmi Note 3 is theclean winner, accompanied carefully via the Zuk Z1.

Winner – Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

Battery lifestyles
All 3 telephones have full-size batteries so one can remaining you above a day of normal use. However, the Zuk Z1 outlasts the other with the aid of extra than an hour in our video loop check. Do maintain in thethoughts that despite the fact that the Z1 doesn’t aid fast charging, it does ship with a high abilitycharger for charging it fast. It’s simply that it may not charge as fast as the Redmi Word 3 or the Moto G4 Plus while beginning from 0.

Focusing speeds are brief and we managed to gettrue information in landscapes and macros. Plus, this is the first cellphone on this charge variety with optical image stabilisation (OIS). Low-light overall performance is commendable too, that is some thingthe Moto G4 Plus and Redmi Note three struggle with. The digital camera app is also the satisfactorysome of the 3 as it‘s easy to use for beginners and gives finer controls for extra expert users.

Motorola Moto X3 With Fingerprint Scanner Purportedly Spotted in the Wild

Motorola Moto X3 With Fingerprint Scanner Purportedly Spotted in the Wild

Lenovo’s upcoming Moto X-series smartphone, believed to launch as Moto X3, is claimed to have been spotted in a new image.

The new leaked image is said to have been taken when the unannounced handset was being used by a commuter. Originally shared by hellomotoHK, the leaked image may have “possibly” given us first glimpse of the next-generation Moto X smartphone.

The new leaked image shows the front panel of an alleged Moto X3 featuring a fingerprint scanner right below the display. Currently, it’s not clear whether the fingerprint scanner is a standalone sensor or if it is integrated into the home button, just like Samsung’s Galaxy handsets.

Further, the leaked Moto handset is seen featuring the iconic Motorola logo “M” on top of the screen and is also rumoured to sport a USB Type-C port. The new leaked image of the alleged Moto X3 also gives us a rough idea about the size of the handset, pegging it as a larger phone than previous Moto X smartphones.

motorola_moto_x3_hellomotohk.jpgThe leaked image ties-up with an earlier report that said Motorola may finally add a fingerprint scannerto its fourth generation Moto X smartphone which will debut in 2016. A Lenovo executive had earlier this year confirmed that all Motorola smartphones launching in 2016 would feature a fingerprint scanner.

Considering Motorola or Lenovo has not mentioned anything about the upcoming device, the legitimacy of the leaked remains questionable and readers are requested to take it with a pinch of salt.

A recent Zauba, import and export tracking site, listing had tipped that the anticipated Motorola Moto X3 smartphone was shipped to India. The listing further suggested that the Moto X3 may feature a 5-inch display and support single-SIM.

Moto X Force: The unbreakable Force

Moto X Force: The unbreakable Force

Motorola’s newest instalment in the premium segment, the Moto X Force, boasts of a screen so strong that it just won’t shatter no matter how much you drop it. A challenge, I gladly accepted.

At first glance, the Force seemed very chunky but to my surprise it was pretty lightweight. Motorola has not given beauty a preference as the phone looks quite ordinary. It has a 5.4-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560p, which provides for sharp and vibrant colours. The display is akin to other premium smartphones.

Under the hood, it houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor along with 3GB of RAM which is sufficient. Playing games on the Force was a breeze. Surprisingly, it didn’t heat up much even when used at a stretch. It comes with a 3,760-mAh battery and it lasted me a good two days on heavy usage. The device runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop but an upgrade to Marshmallow is likely in the foreseeable future.

The Force comes with a Moto app that registers gestures such as a twist to launch the camera. The camera app, however, is slow to load which is quite frustrating. It has a 21-megapixel (MP) primary camera which delivers good-quality images but only in conditions with good lighting. If you try to click a picture in low light, the resultant output is disappointing. The 5MP secondary camera is good enough for selfies.

The star of the show is the Force’s screen. It has two touchscreen layers beneath the scratch-resistant layer. I was a bit apprehensive while undertaking drop tests. I feared the worst when I dropped it the first time. Upon seeing no screen damage, I tried dropping it a couple of more times. I dropped it on a gravel path, flung it on the bed and also dropped the charger (albeit accidentally) on the screen. But I was delighted to find that the phone was intact. In fact, most of my drop tests were accidental, especially when the phone slipped through my fingers onto a granite slab. But the Force didn’t relent.

At Rs 49,999, the Moto X Force delivers more than enough. Most people are very careful with their premium phones – one of my colleagues wraps her iPhone 6 in a soft pillow-like case. With the Force, one has the option to roughhouse the phone as much as they like.
