It’s June 27, and yet another Motorola smartphone launch is scheduled to happen later today. Two weeks back, we reported that Motorola sent out media invites for an event on June 27, where the Lenovo-owned company is expected to launch the Moto Z2 and Z2 Force. The Moto Z2 and Z2 Force will be Motorola’s flagship phones for 2017 and are supposed to have the top-notch hardware.
Motorola has already unveiled the affordable Moto Z2 Play and the budget Moto E4 and E4 Plus smartphones this month, and the company is looking to close the month on a high note by launching the Moto Z2. Both the Moto Z2 and Z2 Force specifications have already leaked online, thanks to various benchmark reports.
The Moto Z2 will succeed the last year’s Moto Z. From the Moto Z2 Play, we got to see that there won’t be many changes in the design aspect when compared to the first generation Moto Z phones. Also, the Moto Z2 will pack a smaller battery because it’s expected to have the same thickness of 5.2mm as the Moto Z. Motorola is looking for a thinner smartphone because of the support for the Moto Mods at the back, which make the smartphone look a bit thicker when attached.
The Moto Z2 Force will have a 5.5-inch shatterproof display like the Moto Z Force and will be limited to the US itself. The Z2 Force packs a bigger battery and supports Moto Mods.
Both the phones will be powered by the Qualcomm’s high-end Snapdragon 835 chip, clubbed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The storage is expandable up to 128GB with a microSD card.
All these features are expected, but the highlight of both the phones is that they come with dual cameras at the back. It is highly expected that there will be two 13MP sensors at the back. There will be an 8MP front-facing camera as well with dual-tone LED flash.
Along with the two phones, Motorola may unveil new Moto Mods as well. It will be a matter of time from now for the phones to go official. We will post an article along with complete availability and pricing details once Motorola announces the smartphones.
