Moto Z12 Spotted

Motorola's upcoming ZINE Z12 media phone has been spotted in its first full photo just days ahead of its likely launch, says Czech site iDNES.cz. Already partly uncovered in December, the slider phone is now known to be wider than the Z8 and Z10 it replaces but also sports a very different control scheme: the familiar physical controls appear to have been replaced with touch-sensitive buttons.

While no additional information has been released with the snapshot, the Z12 should use a variant on Symbian's UIQ interface and has been previously rumored to come with a 5-megapixel camera (up from 3.2 in the Z10), GPS navigation, and both HSDPA-based 3G as well as Wi-Fi for networking. The screen has also likely been enlarged to as much as 2.8 inches across. Following yesterday's teaser video, the new Motorola phone is most likely to appear at next week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and ship towards the middle of this year.
