Motorola (owned by Lenovo) earlier this week launched Moto G4, Moto G4 Play and Moto G4 Plus budget smartphones. Additionally reports revealed new details of Moto's 2016 flagship devices.

According to Venture Beat, Motorola is replacing the Moto X series with a brand new Moto Z family. The first two members of the Moto Z family will be the 5.5-inch Moto Z Style codenamed Vector Thin and Moto Z Play, codenamed Vertex. They will succeed the Moto X Style and Moto X Play from last year.

They will have fingerprint scanners on the front and modular back plates, that can be swapped with modules allegedly called MotoMods and includes stereo speakers, battery pack, camera grip w/ flash and optical zoom, rugged cover with wide-angle lens and a pico projector.
