Nairobi, 28 February 2017 – Lenovo, through its Subsidiary, Motorola Mobility, has announced the availability of Moto Z smartphone along with the new innovation Moto Mods in Kenya.

According to Lenovo, Moto Z is the world’s thinnest premium smartphone at just 5.2mm with a 5.5” Quad HD AMOLED display.

The smartphone is equipped with a powerful Qualcomm SnapdragonTM 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32 GB or 64 GB of storage inside. Those looking for even more storage for pictures, videos and apps can add a microSD card up to 2 TB.

Moto Z has a high-resolution 13MP camera with optical image stabilization and laser autofocus, which help users take beautiful, true-to-life pictures in any light and condition. The front-facing 5MP camera includes a wide-angle lens.

Danish Oyugi, Country Manager for Lenovo Kenya says the company is proud to bring back the Moto brand into Kenya along with the revolutionary Moto Mods.

“Nowadays, consumers expect the best features in one device, and at Lenovo we are constantly working to provide consumers with a smartphone that meets their desires. Whether users are into photography, music, videos or fashion, we have teamed up with experts in each industry to provide our customers with a device that meets all expectations,’’ says Oyugi.

The Moto Mods Family includes the JBL SoundBoost speakers so users can take the party with them, the Insta-Share Projector to enable content share, power packs from Incipio for consumers to not out of battery, and the Hasselblad True Zoom, that will enable aspiring photographers to capture precious moments on the go.

With the Hasselblad Mod, Moto has added advanced imaging capabilities to the phone in a snap. Featuring 10x Optical Zoom and a Xenon flash, the focus is to get the shot – lighting and distance will never stand in the way of capturing your image.

Customers can expect even more control and flexibility with the ability to shoot in RAW format, in addition to the physical shutter and zoom controls, guaranteeing a great handling experience.

With True Zoom, users will also get free access to Hasselblad’s Phocus software for streamlined editing control and the highest quality output.
