The wait is over: Moto Z and Moto Z Force Droid editions up for pre-order!


As this year's duo of Moto flagships has finally made it to the pre-order stage under the Verizon-exclusive Droid moniker. That's right, for the first few months of the phones' existence, you won't be able to get your hands on that super-thin Moto Z unless you tie the knot with Big Red. But hey, at least we can get some good idea on the phones' prices!

Both the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid can be found on Verizon's website and Motorola's own Moto Maker. They are priced at $624 and $720 respectively, however, if you want to upgrade their storage from the normal 32 GB to 64 GB, you will only be able to do so on Motorola's website (for now) and have to shell out an extra $50 on each model. With Verizon, you can grab the Moto Z Droid for 24 monthly payments of $26, while the Moto Z Force Droid will set you back $30 each month. Shipping on pre-ordered handsets will begin on the 28th of July.

Both handsets are available in two color variants — “Black & Lunar Grey” and “White & Fine Gold”. A third version “Black & Rose Gold” is marked as “coming soon”, but we can't be sure when that is.

The Moto Mods are also present on both Verizon's and Motorola's websites. Verizon has an offer where you get a 40% discount on every second Mod you buy. However, the discount will be applied on the lower price item — for example, if you add a Power Pack ($59.99) and then an Insta-Share Projector ($299.99) to your cart, the 40% discount will be applied to the Power Pack's $60 price-tag.

You all put Frode in the title and not "Force". Just wanted to give a heads up.

It says Forde, but either way, it shows a lack of proofreading skills.

Instant buy guaranteed for me. Now expecting their OneCompute Mod, Hasselblad camera mod and any health kit mod, credit card payment mods that's on the way in the coming weeks. The ultimate phone.

But it's worth the asking price, nevertheless,

Obviously its totally worth it. Infact with these phone and the Mods, you basically need not upgrade your phone every year tbh. I bet an average joe would have a hell of a lot of fun with this phone than 90% of phones out there.

Still waiting for the Play. I need something to replace the battery inefficiency of Oxygen OS on the OP3
