And finally Motorola unveiled the world’s thinnest premium smartphone during Tech World 2016 back in June, together with the powerful Moto Z Force. The two smartphones were later made available through Verizon as Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid.
And now, it seems that Motorola has decided to make the unlocked version of Moto Z available to customers by launching pre-orders on its US website. Earlier this week, the unlocked Moto Z smartphones were made available on Amazon.
The listing on Motorola’s website suggests that the Moto Z will start shipping around September 30 to customers who have pre-ordered it. The Moto Z is listed with a price of $699 on Motorola’s website, while the price of Moto Mods varies between $20 and $300.
The unlocked Moto Z will work on multiple US networks, including AT&T, T-Mobile and GSM networks. The smartphone comes with a USB Type-C port and measures 153.3 x 75.3 x 5.2 mm. The unlocked Moto Z boasts the same specs as the Moto Z Droid sold at Verizon, but it lacks all the bloatware that carriers usually install on devices sold through their networks.
Moto Z comes with 4GB of RAM and a 23MP rear camera
The Moto Z is equipped with a 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution which reaches around 535 pixels-per-inch. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 820 CPU and comes with 4GB of RAM. It also runs the Adreno 530 graphics processing unit and has 32GB of internal storage and a microSD port that allows users to add up to 256GB of memory.
In addition, the smartphone features a 23MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization. It also has laser autofocus and dual-tone LED flash. Front camera capacity is 5MP with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash.
Moto Z comes with a 2,600mAh battery which Motorola says it can provide 30 hours of battery life. The unlocked version of Moto Z Force should be available for pre-order soon.
