moto-z-headA report from last week revealed that Motorola could be doing away with the Moto X lineup. Instead they are expected to introduce a new lineup of phones that falls under the Moto Z family. A rather interesting twist considering that Sony moved from Z to X for their flagships, and Motorola is doing the opposite.

That being said, for those wondering how true the rumors are, wonder no more because a recent sighting at the USTO has revealed that the company has filed for a trademark for the Moto Z name. Of course given that the previous rumor came from Evan Blass whose rumor reporting has been very on point, we guess this doesn’t really come as a surprise.

Of course right now it’s anyone’s guess as to what kind of phones we might expect under the new Moto Z lineup. Just the other day, the company introduced the Moto G4 and the G4 Plus for its mid-ranged handsets. Both phones packed pretty decent specs for how much they cost, so it will be interesting to see if Motorola will be able to one up themselves with the Moto Z which is supposed to represent their top of the line handsets.

Recent hints have suggested that maybe the Motorola RAZR could be returning in some way, but in any case we will find out come 9th of June which is when the new Motorola handsets will be announced.
