Motorola recently announced the two major flagship smartphones in the rebranded “Moto Z” lineup, namely, the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force. Both the phones are powerful handsets but the real highlight of these devices is the modular design which allows you to add a number of functional modules at the back of the phone, like a projector module, camera module, and even a battery module. Unfortunately, at the time of the announcement of both these devices, Motorola failed to give out specific prices for its products. However, thanks to Chinese media, we might now have some clue about both the device’s pricing, at least in China.
According to reports, Lenovo’s Mobile Business Group President, Chen Xudong is said to have said that Moto Z will enter the Chinese market in September this year at a price of less than 3000 Yuan ($455). We also have specific price figures for both the devices. The Moto Z is said to start at 2998 Yuan ($455) while the Moto Z Force, with much better specs is said to retail at 5299 Yuan ($804). Remember that these pricings are not official yet, so we will have to wait for an announcement from the company to confirm it.
Coming to the specs, the Moto Z comes with Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor with 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage options. This can be further expanded via MicroSD. The phone features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 2K resolution. At the back, the phone comes with a 13MP shooter with f/1.8 aperture, OIS, dual tone flash and Laser Focus. Up front, there’s a 5MP shooter with selfie flash. The phone is super thin measuring just 5.2mm in thickness. Inside this thin body, you get a 2600mAh battery with Motorola’s TurboPower fast charging tech.
Coming to the Moto Z Force, it comes with SD820 and same RAM + storage options as the Moto Z. The screen is also 5.5-inch with 2K but it features Motorola’s ShatterShield technology. The camera at the back is upgraded to 21MP with OIS and Laser Focus. Inside, you get a 3500mAh battery with TurboPower fast charge that charges up to 50% in 15 minutes.
Both the phones ditch the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. So, you need to use USB Type-C connected headphones. Also, they have a special 16 pin connector at the back which is used to add MotoMods to the devices.
