Motorola has unveiled the much-awaited Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones. The new models were launched at the Lenovo Tech World 2016 in San Francisco.

"With the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, we are rethinking smartphones completely differently," said Lenovo CEO and chairman, Yang Yuanqing.

The Motorola Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be available across the world from September 2016.

While the prices of the smartphones were not disclosed, it has been revealed that both devices sport a fingerprint scanner on the home button and a USB Type-C port.

The phones also come with a 5.5-inch QHD Amoled display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and a choice of 32GB or 64GB of storage.

The Moto Z Force comes with a 21-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilisation, phase detection autofocus (PDAF), and laser autofocus.

Headquartered in Illinois, United States, Motorola was divided into two independent public companies, Motorola Mobility and Motorola Solutions on 4 January, 2011, after having lost US $4.3 billion from 2007 to 2009.

Motorola Solutions is generally considered to be the direct successor to Motorola, Inc. as the reorganisation was structured with Motorola Mobility being spun off. In January 2014, Lenovo announced a proposed deal to acquire Motorola Mobility to bolster its plans for the US market.
