Motorola Moto Z DROID users will get unlimited Google Photos storage for two years

So now we know what this year's Motorola Droid models will look like at Verizon this year. There will be a high-end model that will be the flagship for the line, the Motorola Moto Z Force Droid Edition. And there is the Motorola Moto Z Droid Edition. In some regards, you could consider the former to be this year's version of the Droid Turbo with a shatterproof screen and a 3500mAh battery that provides up to 40-hours of  battery life. 

The Motorola Moto Z Droid Edition might not have exactly the same specs found on the Moto Z Force Droid Edition, but it will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset, carry 4GB of RAM, and work with the Moto Mods accessories. The 5.5-inch AMOLED screen might not be shatterproof, but it does have a 1440 x 2560 resolution, and is protected by Gorilla Glass. Obviously, this handset is nothing to sneeze at.

And lost amid the excitement of yesterday's presentation (wasn't that Jobs' star Ashton Kutcher proving that he really does work for Lenovo?) was the news that Moto Z Droid Edition users will receive two-years of unlimited cloud based storage in original quality via Google Photos. Last month, it was rumored that Nexus users would be given unlimited Google Photo storage at original quality for photos and videos (4K videos included). This would be offered as a way to boost sales of Nexus phones and tablets.

Unlike the deal rumored to be offered to Nexus users, Moto Z Droid Edition users do have a two-year limit. Those two-years will go by so quickly that those who take Google up on the free, unlimited storage offer shouldn't wait too long to consider their exit strategy for when their two-years is up.
