Announced at Lenovo Tech World in June, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force are finally up for pre-order. As Lenovo stated at their event in June, both devices are available as Droid Editions first, with the Moto Z heading to other countries and being sold unlocked later this summer. Verizon has opened up the pre-orders for both devices today, and will be launching both of these in-store on July 28th. The Moto Z Droid will cost you $26/month and the Moto Z Force Droid will cost you $30/month. Obviously, if you are someone that needs a display that can't be shattered, then you'll want to pony up and get the Moto Z Force Droid (which is only available in the US and only available at Verizon). As that Moto Z Force Droid features Motorola's Shattershield technology that was found on the Droid Turbo 2 last year.
These two devices are pretty similar. Obviously the main difference here is the thickness of the device and the fact that the display on the Moto Z Force Droid is shatter-proof. The Moto Z Force Droid also has a larger battery, and a slightly different camera here. Both devices feature 5.5-inch displays that are QHD, powered by the Snapdragon 820 processor and are paired with 4GB of RAM, and the choice of either 32GB or 64GB of storage with a micro SD card slot. Where things differ is in the camera. The Moto Z has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with the Moto Z Force featuring a 21-megapixel sensor. On the front, both feature a 5MP camera. Elsewhere, differences lay in the thickness. With the Moto Z coming in at 5.2mm thin and the Moto Z Force coming in at 7mm thin. The Moto Z has a small 2,600mAh battery, while the Moto Z Force has a 3,500mAh battery inside.
On top of the availability of both the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, Verizon is also selling a slew of Moto Mods at launch. These are modules that can extend the functionality of the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. Some of the popular Moto Mods that are available include a JBL speaker that can clip to the back of the device, there's also a Pico Projector and a battery case. With many more coming from developers who are exploring the developer kit for Moto Mods. You can pre-order the Moto Z and Moto Z Force from Verizon using the links below. They should ship on or before July 28th.
