Motorola has already sent out media invites for a smartphone launch on June 27, and the teaser revealed that the device would be the Moto Z2 with a dual camera setup at the back. The Moto Z2 will be the company’s first flagship phone for 2017 and will feature the flagship Snapdragon 835 chipset under-the-hood.
With the launch date closing in, the anticipation among the customers about the device is building. That said, the Moto Z2 was earlier spotted on various benchmark sites, and today, it is spotted on AnTuTu benchmark, which is used to test the overall performance of the phone.
According to the AnTuTu listing, the Moto Z will sport a QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The screen size will be 5.5-inch because the Moto Z2 will support the first generation Moto Mods. As seen with earlier leaks, the Moto Z2 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, paired with Adreno 540 GPU.
There will be 4GB of RAM on the phone, supported by 64GB of internal storage. Currently, there’s no info whether the storage is expandable or not. Furthermore, the listing says that the Moto Z will have a 12MP sensor at the back. This might be the same camera setup seen on the recently released affordable Moto Z2 Play. But Motorola will add few more tweaks such as Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) support. The Moto Z2 will have a 5MP front-facing support with support for LED flash as well.
At the time of testing, the Moto Z2 was running Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The highlight of the Moto Z2 will be the support for Moto Mods at the back. As per previous rumours, the Moto Z2 will be a slimmer phone, same as its predecessor, but the thickness is not yet revealed. Also, the AnTuTu listing did not reveal the dual camera setup implementation.
Along with the Moto Z2, there will be the Moto Z2 Force with a bigger battery and Shatterproof display. It’s still unknown whether Motorola will unveil the Z2 Force along with the Moto Z2 on June 27. The rumoured pricing of Moto Z2 in India is Rs. 38,999.
