Did Lenovo “forget” to announce something during its Tech World-opening keynote yesterday? It sure looks like it, with the high-end Moto Z and Z Force phones bound to be joined soon by a mid-range Moto Z Play.

Codenamed Vertex, this is pictured today in press-friendly quality alongside its “Vector maxx” and “Vector thin” cousins, with Weibo tipsters previously hinting at a spec sheet containing Snapdragon 625 power, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 16MP rear camera, and 3,600 mAh battery.

Moto Pro Camera Mod

But perhaps the more exciting news is the Moto Mod family should grow from four to six members before long. In addition to the JBL speaker, Insta-Share projector, Incipio offGrid Power Pack, and Style Shell accessories, a Pro Camera Mod and Adventure Mod will magnetically attach to the back of the Z, Z Force and, hopefully, Z Play.

Moto Adventure Mod

The Pro Camera “amp” is expected to magically give your versatile handheld 10x optical zoom capabilities, improved auto-focus and other neat imaging tricks, while the Adventure we’re hearing about and seeing for the first time appears to turn Z phones into “waterproof guaranteed” beasts. All in all, Lenovo thought of everything, but decided to keep a few cards close to the chest for now.

Later, he realized this was pretty much his only marketable skill, so he first created a personal blog (in Romanian) and then discovered his true calling, which is writing about all things tech (in English).
