Moto Z (2017): Render image confirms modularity and sleek design

The slim Moto Z will soon get a successor. A leaked rendering image underlines the rumor that Lenovo plans to install an iris scanner.

In addition, as expected, the manufacturer also adheres to the modularity of Moto Z2 and Moto Z (2017).
For the authenticity of the picture, the home button of the shown smartphone, which has a similar design as the recently launched Moto G5, speaks.

The square basic shape, which still caught the attention of the Moto Z, is obviously history in 2017 and replaced by a Samsung-like look. It can be assumed that the rounded Home button will also accommodate the mandatory fingerprint sensor.

Because on the back, this is obviously not housed, instead, there are on the other hand the still striking camera module as well as the connectors for the Moto Mods. As expected, Lenovo will probably hold on to the modularity introduced by the 2016 flagship, unlike LG.

It remains to be seen whether this will be accompanied by new modules. At least the Moto Z2 – or Moto Z (2017) – with a connected module is not quite as corpulent as the predecessor. The rendering image makes an even narrower case.

Moto Z2: Where is the iris scanner?

In January, a sketch made the round, which claimed to show first plans of the Moto Z2. This revealed a supposed iris scanner, which should be placed above the display. From this, each track is missing in the current rendering image. You can see the only front camera and LED flash.

It is possible that the implementation of an iris scanner has not yet been finalized, which is why the early prototypes still have to do without. Lenovo still has a few months. The new Moto Z is expected to appear in the summer.
