Moto Z Play first look

Modularity has become a topic of interest lately, with LG giving us the G5 and its snap-on accessories and Google just stopping short of announcing its modular smartphone project is dead.

Good execution is perhaps the ultimate asset, and among modular handsets on the market today, we think the Lenovo-made Moto Z series is a shining example.


The entry point to the Z series and its promising ecosystem of add-ons is the $449 Moto Z Play. As the price suggests, it is a midrange Android phone backed by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The rest of the specs aren’t too shabby either: 16-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 lens; reversible Type-C connector; and 3,510mAh battery.

Of course, the real highlight here is the variety of accessories that snap on the back of the Play and other Z devices and consist of a choice between cases, a battery back, a JBL stereo speaker, a Hasselblad zoom camera, and a handheld projector, which is great for movie night at home.

The Moto Z Play is already being sold to customers in the US, the UK, and Latin America. The Indian market will get it sometime in October.

This is our first look at the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

Way back when we first started making videos on this channel, the Dell XPS line is one whose evolution we’ve been tracking — a favorite because of its slim design and near borderless display. We’ve seen many tweaks over the years, including a two-in-one variant that offered more flexibility.


The problem is it didn’t always feel like it offered more. Well here at Computex, Dell might just have fixed this problem.

Three years in the making, Lenovo’s upcoming ThinkPad X1 computer is the world’s first with a flexible display. The device is still nameless, but the company believes “it will replace the laptop.”

Recently we were given some hands-on time with the prototype and suffice to say, our techie bones were tickled pink.
