Lenovo plans to release more Moto Mods for the Motorola Moto Z in 2017 and one of them will apparently bring blazing-fast 5G connectivity. Right now, Google Tango is a great idea trapped inside mediocre hardware. Many rumors said regarding the upcoming Moto Z on 2017, but what are the things we can really expect?

What To Expect On The Upcoming Moto Z 2017?

According to many reports, Moto Z are to be out in the mid-2017. As Techradar reported, the original Moto Z has a 5.5-inch 1440 x 2560 display, and there’s every chance the Moto Z (2017)’s screen will be exactly the same size and resolution. Any smaller could be seen as a downgrade, while larger would perhaps make it a bit too much of a phablet for the company’s main flagship (though that didn’t stop the Moto X Style having a 5.7-inch screen).

Still, according to TR, the upcoming Moto Z will have a metal shell, and that will be one of the key design of the gadget. This gave it an eye-catching look, and meant it was slim enough that MotoMods could be added without leaving you with an overly chunky phone, but it also meant the 3.5mm headphone jack had to be removed, and that’s a decision that wasn’t so popular.

The Moto Z has a 13MP rear camera, but early rumors suggest that could be changing for the Moto Z (2017), as leaker @Ricciolo1 has tweeted that the Moto Z (2017) will have a lower megapixel count, but larger pixels and quality lenses, allowing for enhanced low light images.

The Google Tango

As reported by the Android Central, Google Tango is a great idea trapped inside mediocre hardware. It is a technology platform developed and authored by Google that uses computer vision to enable mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, to detect their position relative to the world around them without using GPS or other external signals.

This allows application developers to create user experiences that include indoor navigation, 3D mapping, physical space measurement, environmental recognition, augmented reality, and windows into a virtual world. Computer scientist Johnny Lee said, "We're developing the hardware and software technologies to help everything and everyone understand precisely where they are, anywhere."

Android Central news said: Motorola, Lenovo's mobile-focused subsidiary, plans to change that in 2017 with a Google Tango Moto Mod, according to company president Aymar de Lencquesaing, speaking to a group of reporters at a meeting in Chicago. "We're likely to to have a Tango module to basically enable the Z to have Tango functionality," noting that "augmented reality on a phone is a technology that's likely to stick." There is tons of potential there, he continued. "We'll follow, or lead, the market in this area."
