Motorola Moto Z Now Official, Packs High-End Specs And Has No Headphone Jack

Motorola's latest flagship smartphone is finally official, after months of rumours. Although it was expected to launch under a different name, the Moto Z is now announced and looks really good. It is expected to go on sale sometime this summer, probably in September.

The handset features a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, which isn't a shatter-proof. There is a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of expandable storage, a 13 MP rear camera with laser autofocus, OIS and dual-tone LED flash, and a 5 MP selfie shooter with a wide-angle lens.

Its chassis is made out of aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel and is only 5.2 mm thin, making it one of the thinnest flagship smartphone out there. Being that thin, the company only managed to squeeze a 2,600 mAh battery. What is interesting is that there's no 3.5mm headphone jack, only USB Type-C port. Luckily, the company included adapter so users can still use a 3.5mm headphone with it.

One of the biggest advantage over the competition is the support for MotoMods accessories. More about them in the following article.
