Motorola Moto Z2 Force leaks out alongside the Moto E4 and Moto C series

Motorola Moto Z2 Force leaks out alongside the Moto E4 and Moto C series
Wondering what Motorola Mobility has been up to after releasing the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus? Well, the company is getting ready to unveil several new smartphones, including a couple of high-end models: Moto Z2 and Moto Z2 Force.

Earlier this month, we saw a Moto Z2 logo, and now we can take a look at what is, allegedly, a Moto Z2 Force press image.

Revealed by @OnLeaks and Slashleaks, the Moto Z2 Force resembles the Moto Z Force from last year, but there are - of course - a few notable differences. Unlike the original Z Force, the Z2 Force features a dual rear camera, and has a fingerprint scanner (on the front) that looks better integrated with the overall design. We can also spot a Lenovo logo on the right side of the handset. Other than that, the new device unsurprisingly supports Moto Mods, and seems to be pretty thin.

While we don't have word on the specs of the Moto Z2 series, it's probably safe to assume that the Z2 Force will pack an unbreakable ShatterShield display and a generous battery (just like its predecessor), while the regular Moto Z2 should feature a normal display, and a smaller battery.

Alongside the Moto Z2 and Z2 Force, Motorola will also launch a Moto E4 series, and a Moto C series. From the info gathered until now, it seems that all the Moto E4 and Moto C phones will sport 5-inch displays, though features will vary depending on model (for example, there should be Moto E4 Plus and Moto C Plus variants with better specs and larger batteries).

The Moto E4 series will obviously replace the 2016 Moto E3, but the Moto C family is brand new - and, as reported yesterday, it should include the cheapest Moto smartphones to date.

Motorola will likely not announce all these new handsets at the same time. In particular, the Moto Z2 family might be officially unveiled around June - one year after the Moto Z series from 2016. Whatever happens, we'll be here to keep you in the know!

I admire Moto's decision to stick with the same footprint as the Moto Z for the Z2. It's the only way moto mods could be a good investment

" Moto's decision " is a misnomer. It is lenovo's decision . I have started disliking Motorola for releasing so many handsets in a year. They have made a mess . Similar to lenovo. Why do not they concentrate on 3 models only. 1 for budget, mid range and premium segment each.

The Z series is managed by whatever is left of Motorola, unlike the rest of the phones which are lenovo's phones with Moto branding. I bet the Moto C is going to be a phone as terrible as Moto M

On a second tought, this wont be thesame on the regular moto z cause i reckon this was how it was last year where the regular moto z was far sleaker than the z force. These were the phones of the year in 2016 imo..

some people here are complaining about Motorola 24/7. To many handsets a year, bezels, to thick, to thin, heavy, light, this, that. Motorola must make phone for 6 billion taste. Be like apple and make one phone for all times.
