It looks like Motorola will be launching in Pakistan earlier than we had thought. Lenovo Pakistan has official teamed up with Daraz.pk to bring the Motorola Moto Z and a variety of mods to the Pakistani market for the very first time.
Pre-booking for the devices has started on Daraz.pk, but an exact date of delivery and release is yet to be disclosed by Lenovo. The last time we checked, the announcement to launch the Moto Z was welcomed on Lenovo Pakistan’s Facebook page as over 55,000 people had liked the new development. It is about time that another strong competitor officially makes a presence in the country after Samsung, Qmobile and Huawei continue to dominate.
Motorola Moto Z Specifications
The Motorola smartphone is an impressive one for sure. For a price of PKR 74,999, it better be! Let’s take a look at some of the specifications of the phone here:
- 5 inch screen with a 1440 X 2560 pixels resolution giving you 535 ppi pixel density
- AMOLED Capacitive Touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 4
- Android 7.0 (Nougat) on a 1.8 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820
- 4 GB RAM and 32GB Internal Storage (64GB Variant not available on Daraz.pk yet)
- Dual-LED Flash 13 MP Back Camera with OIS and a 5 MP Front Camera
- 2600 mAh non-removable battery and a MicroSD card slot.
Well the specifications are quite impressive, we think that it could have been a monster performer with eight processors, instead of the current quad-core. At a staggering price of approximately PKR 75,000, it would have been exciting to see a 64 GB variant as well. This was a major selling point of the Lenovo ZUK Z1 which has a very similar specification sheet.
There is something very similar about the iPhone 7 and the Motorola Moto Z. What is that you ask? Well, as surprising as it may sound, the Moto Z does not have a headphone jack either! It may be a deal breaker for some people, but fortunately a 3.5 mm headphone jack to USB Type-C dongle similar to the iPhone’s is available in the box. So this means that instead of the regular old microUSB, USB Type-C is the way to go here.
What About the MODS?
We have yet to test the mods out. There has been a lot of praise around them, but Google abandoned the project a little too quickly for it to mature out. Lenovo is continuing the legacy now that it has the rights to Motorola, but let’s see when this mobile phone is out in the Pakistan market to see how it performs.
With the Daraz.pk deal, you will be getting a choice to choose between three different types.
Here they are:
So depending on whichever one you end up choosing, you can either boost the phone’s sound, turn the Moto Z into a professional camera or into a cinema with the insta-share projector. If it were up to use, the projector sounds kind of cool but since we, at TechBizWeb are music junkies, the sound boost would be terrific.
Motorola in Pakistan is going to be great. We just hope that Lenovo really does invest in the brand and continues to provide updates on time. That’s all what people are looking for, otherwise there are plenty of other brands out there and it doesn’t take long to change minds nowadays.
There is still a huge market to win-over with quality service and if Lenovo Pakistan plays its cards right, Samsung and Huawei could have a run for their money.
