Lenovo-owned Motorola’s flagship Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones which were announced months back is now up for pre-orders in the US available exclusively to US mobile carrier Verizon Wireless. The device will remain for some time exclusive to Verizon after which a network unlocked version will be rolled out.
The latest news about Moto Z and Z Force is that the devices would roll out in China by early September. As earlier reported, the version that would be unveiled in China would come pre-loaded with the One UI which is actually Lenovo’s Vibe UI 3.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This interface will be exclusive to devices shipping to China so it is no surprise that the UI doesn’t feature the Google Play Store but rather sports what appears to be a Chinese app store on the home screen.
There are also news about the price of the flagship devices with the Moto Z said to start at 2998 yuan ($448), whereas the Moto Z Force is rumored to carry a price tag of about 5288 yuan ($790).
