On June 9, Lenovo Will Show Off the New Moto Products and First Project Tango Phone


The new Moto and DROID phones we shared with you this morning will likely be unveiled on June 9 at Lenovo Tech World. On Friday, we received an invite to the 1-day conference from Lenovo and it does indeed say to expect new products from both Lenovo and Moto, along with the launch of the first Project Tango smartphone. 

Details are scarce, but the invite (and the Tech World site) both state that we will get to “watch Moto transform mobile in a snap.” That could be something camera-related, but it more than likely is in reference to modularity and those pins on the back of the phones we saw from earlier. Remember, Project Tango (which Lenovo is also going to show off), is a modular phone concept that uses pin connectors to secure modules to a board. With Lenovo working closely on Project Tango, it only makes sense that they take what they have learned there and apply it to the Moto line.

It’s tough to say what kinds of modules you could attach to the back of the lower portion of a phone, but it could be things like a better external speaker, battery pack, or camera grip, similar to what we saw with the LG G5.

Other teasers for the conference mention new products that will “make your life better…connect your world…let you do more…help you realize your dreams.” Those are lofty, fluffy descriptors, so I wouldn’t put too much into them. I think the focus here is on Project Tango finally becoming a reality and new Moto phones stealing some of that modular mojo.
