Although Lenovo and Motorola has now confirmed that the Moto X range is gone for good and is now being replaced by the new and re-imagined Moto Z line, some aspects are not being changed. Especially, the selection of devices that are available as part of the Moto Z family. Like with last year’s Moto X Pure (or Style) and the Moto Play, this year is also seeing the introduction of another Moto Z device, the Moto Z Force.
The Moto Z has already been confirmed to be the main offering of the Moto Z range this year. However, the Moto Z Force is in line with its name and looks to offer everything the Moto Z offers with some additional extras and most notably in the camera and battery departments. While the Moto Z comes touting a 13-megapixel rear camera, the Moto Z Force makes use of a 21-megapixel camera. Moving to the battery side of things and the Moto Z Force sees an increase from the Moto Z's 2,600 mAh battery up to a 3,500 mAh bttery. One which is said to offer as much as thirty hours of usage between charges. Another notable difference is that the Moto Z Force comes with a Shatter Shield coating which will look to offer a more durable and protected build. The Moto Z Force is also a little taller and wider measuring 155.9 mm in height, 75.8 mm in width and 6.99 mm in depth. While also being a little heavier weighing 163 grams. In terms of the rest of the specs, the Moto Z Force is very much the same as the Moto Z and includes a 5.5-inch QHD display, 4GB RAM, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and comes running on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow).
In terms of availability, Motorola has confirmed that the Moto Z and the Z Force will be available to buy in the U.S. during the summer and will also be available as DROID editions for those buying through Verizon. Unfortunately, as of yet prices have not been released for either the Moto Z or the Moto Z Force.
