Verizon gets U.S. exclusive on the Motorola Moto Z Force DROID and Motorola Moto Z DROID Editions
The Droids are coming! The Droids are coming! And once again, Verizon customers will get a pair of new DROID models taken from the Motorola Moto lineup. Last year, the Motorola Moto X Force became the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 at Verizon, while the Motorola Moto X Play became the Motorola DROID MAXX 2.

This year, Verizon will be offering the Motorola Moto Z Force DROID Edition and the Motorola Moto Z DROID Edition. The Z Force DROID Edition will feature a 5.5-inch shatterproof AMOLED display carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC is under the hood with a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM is inside along with 32GB/64GB of expandable native storage. Those requiring additional memory can access the 2TB microSD slot. And a fingerprint scanner can be found under the display.

The 21MP rear camera (f/1.8 aperture) comes with OIS and phase detection auto-focus. The 5MP front-facing camera has a flash and a wide angle lens to spruce up your selfies. The 3500mAh battery provides up to 40 hours of power, and with Turbo charging, 15-minutes plugged into an outlet can provide up to 15-hours of battery life. Base color options include Black with Lunar Grey trim, Black front lens; Black with Rose Gold trim, Black front lens and Fine Gold, White front lens. Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.

The Motorola Moto Z DROID Edition features a Gorilla Glass protected 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The chipset, RAM, ROM and microSD slot are the same as found on the Moto Z Force DROID Edition. The rear camera is 13MP with an f/1.8 aperture, OIS and laser auto-focus. The front-facing 5MP snapper has a flash and a wide angle lens. At 5.19mm thin, this will be the thinnest smartphone available once it is launched. A 2600mAh battery provides up to 30-hours of usage, and the Turbo charger gives the battery 8-hours of life after just 15-minutes plugged in. A fingerprint sensor can be found under the display in front, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.

Both phones will work with the Moto Mods modular accessories, and are nano-coated for protection from spills and light rain. The new Droids will be coming to Verizon this summer.
