Its 5.5-inch diagonal and 1080 x 1920 resolution remain static from year-to-year, most likely because Motorola needed to ensure that all of the MotoMods maintain compatibility with the newer Z-series devices.

According to Android Police, Lenovo Moto is working on a tablet device that is supposed to run on Android.

"Productivity Mode" allows users to quickly "Switch between apps by tapping the app icon in the navigation bar". Now, since Motorola hasn't come up with a tablet in a very long time, this piece of information arouses curiosity.

Android Police also states that "you can close an app by long-pressing on an icon in the navbar and dragging it up", suggesting that the "tabbed apps" will be kept in memory until closed.

Where tablets have been a drought area for Motorola, smartphones have been something where it has continued to see growth. This will be the company's first tablet in years. Since then, no tablet has been introduced by Motorola or Lenovo.

Lenovo is now Motorola's parent company, and it's not so surprising that the companies would be sharing the same type of software for two different devices. The screenshot also shows a dedicated App Drawer button on the navigation bar. It is also probably that there will be multiple variants of the tablet and at least one of them will offer cellular connectivity.
