Moto Z in Jordan
Lenovo unveiled their new Moto Z in Amman, Jordan. Learn about the device’s specifications and ceremony details in this article.
The Chinese Corporation Lenovo, unveiled their new smartphone Moto Z in the Jordanian Capital Amman. The event was held in the Four Season Hotels to prepare for the launching of Moto Z in Jordanian markets. The event included many Jordanian reporters, known social figures, and technological experts.
We must point that the Chinese Corporation Lenovo took a decision in 2016 as to stop branding their name on their phones and instead placing the American Motorola’s logo Moto. That is because Lenovo bought Motorola back in 2014 and has been trying to combine both trademarks into one.

The main pieces in which a user can change are: the camera, thus allowing the user to capture professional photographs, the speaker which allows the user to listen to high volume music, battery improving device, and turning the phone into a projector.
