Motorola China has officially launched the successor to its Moto Z series as the new Moto Z 2018 and Moto Z 2018 Kingsman Edition. The latest Motorola offerings have been launched with a steep price hike, as the specifications of the smartphones have also been revised. While the previous versions of the Moto Z series were powered by a Snapdragon 625 SOC and were essentially mid-range devices, the Kingsman Edition boasts of a price tag of a whopping 9999 Yuan (~Rs 97,600). The 'more than 100 percent' price hike can be accredited to a better display quality, dual camera setup, accompanying moto mods and accessories.

The specifications of the Moto Z 2018 reveal a similar listing as that of the Moto Z2 Force, with a same 5.5-inch display but an enhanced resolution of 2560x1440 P-OLED and a ShatterShield Shatterproof capability. The processor of the smartphone has also been upgraded to Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 SoC, coupled with a 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space with micro SD card support. With all the spec upgrades, the Moto Z 2018 is being promoted as the company’s new flagship offering in China.

In terms of optics, the Moto Z 2018 carries two 12-megapixel lenses embedded into its dual camera setup, with one being RGB and the other being a monochrome sensor. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel selfie shooter. The Moto Z 2018 will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box and just like every Motorola offering, is expected to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo OS update soon.
