Colorful Moto Z render teases this week's launch

Colorful Moto Z render teases this week's launch
Motorola's got a big announcement coming up on June 9, and all signs point to the company getting ready to launch its next Android flagship, the modular Moto Z. We've already been all over what to expect from this smartphone (or rather, smartphones), and as we're nearing the zero hour, it doesn't look like we're in for any huge surprises. But just because we've got a solid handle on what Lenovo/Motorola's likely to bring us doesn't mean we're not curious to learn more, and today the latest evidence for the Moto Z comes to us in the form of what appears to be a leaked teaser.

The image quality's not great (hence all that banding), but the render's sharp enough, and the handset it shows us sure appears to be a good fit for what we've seen already of the Moto Z: same side button layout, and that disc of a camera hump.

Existing renders have painted the picture of several color styles for the Moto Z, including the three that are being referenced here: silver, gold, and a model with a black back but a rose gold (can we just call it pink?) edge.

While users should be able to customize the Moto Z to their wishes with the help of alternate back panels (adding that extra modular functionality in the process), those three may be it when it comes to trim options, especially if the Moto Maker isn't back in full force this time around.

In any case, we'll have the full story in practically no time at all, as we look forward to Thursday's launch news.

lol, yeah man, it's time to let that one go. There's lots of good phone out there right now, or you can wait a few short weeks and get a new Nexus or Moto Z. I still use my Moto X 2013 as a remote for my chrome casts, and have it linked to my media server, but as a phone and daily driver, it's too far past its prime.

Right there with you, man. Typing this on my OG Moto X, still my daily driver. Surprisingly, still runs pretty well, but battery life is s**t (even replaced it once already). Been waiting for the new Moto line, also considering the HTC 10 (if Verizon ever gets it in black) or the Xperia X Performance (if it even comes to Verizon). Can't wait much longer...

The rest of my message cut off. I said I was going to just retire my Moto X 2013 & save $ & get the 2015 X when the price drops further.

The power button and volume buttons should not be on the same f**king side. Power on the right and volume on the left. Lets make it standard you f**ks

You uh.... need a drink or something buddy? That's a lot of hostility towards an inanimate object. Something wrong?

Yeah, no joke. If you don't like the button placement then don't buy that phone. It's the same thing as QWERTYphone raging on and on and on about removable batteries and expandable storage.

Lol I was masterbating when I typed that out. I get excited and passionate when I have the hand on the noodle.

.... well then that's perfectly understandable. I was about to tell you to get a grip, but I can see you've already gotten a .... handle on things.
