Lenovo launched a couple of new mid-range Motorola smartphones at IFA 2019 in Berlin on Thursday. While the Motorola One Zoom is the more premium of the two with a rear-facing quad-cam module that includes 3x optical zoom, the Moto E6 Plus is a significantly less evocative device in terms of its features and hardware specs.
