Earlier this month, Lenovo announced a new series under the Moto brand, which is known owned by Lenovo. The company unveiled two new Moto smartphones - the Moto Z and Moto Z Force - at Tech World event in San Francisco. Seems like, it is now prepping to add another model in the Moto Z series.
An unannounced Moto Z smartphone variant has been listed on benchmarking site GeekBench, suggesting that the company has more devices under the Moto Z umbrella. Although Lenovo was expected to announce another smartphone called the Moto X Play, we are not sure if this mystery smartphone is the rumored Play version.
The sighting of the new Moto phone carrying a model number XT1635-01 on GeekBench reveals its specifications as well. Here are the specs that the announced smartphone is expected to feature:
A Qualcomm chipset with 3GB RAM on board:
As per the listing, the upcoming Moto Z smartphone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 (msm8953) processor clocked at 2.02GHz. It is paired with 3GB of RAM.

As far as the software is concerned, the mystery smartphone was spotted running on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS.
Z Mods to come along!
One of the key highlights of the Moto Z smartphones is mods, which can be snapped on the back of the phone for adding new functionality. We expect that the unannounced Moto Z smartphone would also come with mods.
A 1080p display:
Though the listing doesn't mention the screen size of this yet to be launched Moto Z smartphone, if it turns out to be none other than the alleged Moto Z Play, then it may also feature a 5.5-inch display of FHD quality giving 1080p resolution.
A camera centric smartphone for photography lovers!
In the camera department, again, if we consider this mystery smartphone to be the Moto Z Play, then expect a 16MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera on-board.
A big battery phone!
Previous rumors also suggested the Moto Z Play would be powered by a 3,000mAh battery! Though, we can't confirm it until it gets launched.
Possible launch soon!
While the Moto Z with mods will launch in India by October, we expect to get to know more about this rumored device in nearing weeks. We might get more details closer to September, when the Moto Z smartphone will go on sale in some countries.
