Motorola might be working on a new tablet


06 May, 2017

According to Android Police, which spoke to unnamed source, Motorola is making a new Android tablet. We do know, per the leak, that it runs Android and that the Android version features a new tool of sorts called 'Productivity Mode.' The screenshot above purports to show this mode, which features a navigation bar in which app icons are located.

The Moto Z line was a big success to Motorola, who is poised to maintain the line with upcoming Moto Z2 Play. It's been long we have seen a decent tablet and that is mainly because of how tablet market has been deteriorating with time. Not much is known about this tablet right now but it's claimed, as you can see in the screenshot posted above, that the tablet is going to bring a "productivity mode". 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. It's said to come with a unique feature (though one that it may actually be borrowing from certain Lenovo slates): Productivity Mode.

It's been a while since we saw a tablet from Motorola - the last was Motorola Xoom which launched some years back. However, it was later spotted by 9To5Google that the feature, or some of its behavior, may have been pulled from Lenovo's Yoga Book laptop-tablet hybrid that was released past year. What's also nice is that the navigation bar seems to include a dedicated app drawer button - next to the navigation keys. The Productivity Mode also moves all of the Android navigation buttons to one side of the screen, for easier thumb access. Also, there are chances that one or more variants might come with cellular connectivity. As far as the display is concerned, Motorola Android tablet is rumored to deliver breathtaking visual experience.
