[Update: Verizon too] Motorola Moto Z4 starts receiving official Android 10 update

Long before the rise of the Android One program, Motorola decided to ship a close-to-stock version of Android under the management of Google. After being acquired by Lenovo, the situation deteriorated over the years. No more blazing fast updates from Motorola anymore, along with the fact that the Moto Z lineup does not carry a...

Motorola Moto Z4 kernel source code is now available

Since Motorola was acquired by Lenovo from Google, the company has had a lot of highs and lows. The company has gotten worse in some areas they used to be good at, such as updates, but their hardware team was also switched entirely. Whereas in the Google days the Moto X was the flagship phone...

Google ARCore adds support for the Realme 3 Pro, Moto Z4, Motorola One Vision, and more

ARCore (now called "Google Play Services for AR") is an SDK that helps developers add augmented reality features to their Android apps. We've seen cool, albeit gimmicky features like Google's AR Stickers (now called "Playground" — Google loves renaming things) get built on top of ARCore, but we've also seen the SDK get used to...

The Motorola Moto Z4 will get Android Q, but not Android R

Nowadays, how well an OEM performs in the software experience front is a testament to the quality of their devices. After all, we've seen countless examples in the past of how software can make or break a smartphone. Of course, a key part of this software experience is consistent updates. One OEM that used to...

The Moto Z4 apparently supports styluses like the Microsoft Surface Pen

Stylus support in smartphones is not a common feature. The most notable devices with stylus support are obviously the Samsung Galaxy Note series, but we haven't seen it in many other handsets. Apparently, the Moto Z4 has support for stylus', but Motorola didn't make a big deal about it. Moto Z4 XDA Forums The Moto Z4 was...

Motorola Moto Z4 forums are now open

After accidentally being sold on Amazon a few days before the announcement, the Moto Z4 launched on Verizon last week. This may not be a super exciting mid-range phone, but it could be Motorola's only device in the Z line for 2019. Regardless, we've opened up the forums for the Moto Z4. Moto Z4 XDA Forums As...

No more Moto Z phones this year, claims Motorola USA’s Twitter account

The debate about how Lenovo handled Motorola after its acquisition from Google can get pretty heated. A lot of people had high hopes when they were being operated by Google and kept onto that optimism after they shifted to Lenovo's control. Since then, it seems as if the company has lost focus as they attempt...

The Motorola Moto Z4 showed up on Amazon with a Snapdragon 675 and Moto Mod support for $499

It's very common to know pretty much every detail about a smartphone before it is officially announced. Phone events these days basically exist to confirm all the leaks and rumors we've already seen. The Moto Z4 is another phone on the horizon that we've heard about already, but this latest "leak" takes the cake. Someone...

[Update: Moto Z4] A new Moto Z smartphone passes through the FCC, here are its specifications

We haven't seen a new Moto Z smartphone since the Verizon Moto Z3 was announced back in August of 2018, but there's evidence that Motorola is preparing to launch at least two new smartphones with Moto Z branding. Earlier today, press renders for what's reportedly the flagship Moto Z4 were leaked. These press renders show...

Motorola Moto Z4 renders show a headphone jack, large camera bump, and small notch

In 2018, when a score of brands jumped the bandwagon and launched smartphones with Snapdragon 845, Lenovo-owned Motorola still chose a dated notchless design and an older Snapdragon 835 chipset to power its so-called flagship, the Motorola Z3. But it should not repeat the same mistake again. Back in November last year, we spotted the...

Motorola Moto Z4 leak reveals small notch, Moto Mod support, and possibly in-display fingerprint scanner

We've known about the Moto Z4 from all the way back in November when the device was referred to as "Odin." However, there hasn't been a ton of leaks and reports about the Moto Z4 series. The Play model has leaked a couple of times, but we've yet to see the standard Moto Z4. That...
