Motorola's newest patent is a foldable smartphone that turns into a tablet

Motorola, or better say Lenovo, doesn’t want to be left behind in the race for the first foldable smartphone, hence the new patent the company filed recently. Although the patent that shows a smartphone that unfolds into a tablet was filed back in September 2016, it was approved in March 2018.

Designing a truly foldable smartphone is definitely a tremendous task, not to mention that developing one that’s ready for mass market is even harder, so Motorola working on a device that can switch from a smartphone to a tablet factor seems close to impossible.

Deal: Save $220 on Motorola's Moto Z2 Force

Several days ago, Motorola Mobility announced its first phones of 2018. However, since all the new handsets are part of the Moto G and Moto E series, there’s no high-end model among them. In consequence, Motorola’s best and most advanced smartphone to date remains last year’s Moto Z2 Force.  
Normally costing $720 in the US, the Motorola Moto Z2 Force is currently offered for $500, so you can save $220 on it. The phone is compatible with most relevant US carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular. This deal is available until …

Specs for Motorola's next budget champ, the E5 Plus, leak in benchmark

Leave it to the pioneers from Motorola to offer great affordable handsets that can be hooked up to any carrier out of the box. The sub-$150 Moto E4, for instance, can be brought to Verizon as a BYOD gear, or any other carrier thereof, and work out of the box, all the while it offers you daily smartphone-ing with a good chance that it will be enough to cover most of your needs. 
Of course, there are compromises, namely the camera, but Motorola is seemingly prepping to address them by… unveiling the next-gen E5 Plus, which already leaked …

Motorola's new Moto G6 lineup is one step closer to launch

Motorola has a bunch of new smartphones in the pipeline, but we have yet to learn when exactly the US company plans to introduce them. There are at least three new Moto G6 handsets that Motorola may unveil soon, along with two new Moto E phones.

Obviously, this isn’t something surprising since Motorola’s entire lineup for the first half of the year has already leaked. However, we’ve just learned that the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play have just received their certifications in Asia.

Two countries have already approved the new Moto G6 series – Thailand and Indonesia, which …

Motorola's Moto E5 appears in 3D renders, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor confirmed

Most of Motorola’s 2018 lineup has already been leaked earlier this month, so there are little surprises still waiting for fans of the US brand. However, the Moto E5 was a bit under the radar when it comes to pictures and details about specs.

Probably the cheapest Motorola smartphone to be launched this year, the Moto E5 is expected to feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, something that companies usually save for their mid- and high-tier products.

Several 3D renders and a video made after the Moto E5’s CAD files confirm the positioning of the fingerprint sensor on the back …

Motorola fans rejoice, as your favorite brand has quite a few surprises in store for you. Well, not anymore since they all ended up on the internet, but that no reason not to be excited, right?

There was no doubt that the G5 lineup will be followed by the G6, although some wondered if another G Play smartphone would be part of the new lineup once again. Well, apparently the answer is affirmative, at least according to some official (or not) images that have just leaked online. In fact, this is just a confirmation of what Evan Blass pointed out back in October.

So, …
