From new Moto devices to Project Tango, Lenovo will have a full lineup of announcements this Thursday at Tech World 2016. Now, a new render has surfaced highlighting the thinness of the Moto Z, while a Bluetooth certification points to low-end devices also set to carry the Moto name.

The device in the leaked render is presumably the Moto Z Style. Pegged at just 5.2 mm, the Style is Lenovo’s higher-end device with a quad HD 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 820 chip, and 3/4GB of RAM. However, the device will be somewhat thicker when used in conjunction with a MotoMod to either add functionality or customize the device.

Per imports and alleged Bluetooth certifications, it’s also now increasingly likely that we’ll all see an updated Mote E launched at the event. Possible specs include a 5-inch 720p display, quad-core MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. There’s also purportedly a 7MP rear facing camera and a 4.7MP front facer.

Although not likely to be Google- or Android-related, Lenovo also announced a partnership today with chipmaker Movidius for VR and AR products. With the first consumer Project Tango device also set to launch, Lenovo’s partnership with the chipmaker further signals the company’s commitment to virtual and augmented reality devices. Interestingly, this is not related to the Project Tango device created with Google, but rather a standalone VR device.

With a full day of festivities set for Thursday, we’ll get a glimpse of Lenovo’s full lineup of new products. Stay tuned to 9to5Google for full coverage as our own Stephen Hall will be on the ground in San Francisco later this week.
