Verizon's Motorola Moto Z Force Droid Edition to be unveiled on July 14th
The Motorola Moto Z Force Droid Edition will be unveiled during an event scheduled for July 14th. Although the phone was already introduced during Lenovo Tech World, not all of the pertinent information related to the Droid Edition of the handset was revealed. Information like pricing and availability should be announced at the event.

The Moto Z Droid Edition will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood containing a quad-core 2.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. Those seeking additional memory can access the 2TB capacity microSD slot.

The 21MP rear-facing camera comes with OIS and an aperture of f/1.8. The 5MP selfie snapper has its own front-facing flash, and a 3500mAh battery keeps the lights on. The phone supports the Moto Mods accessories including the Insta-Share Projector ($299), JBL SoundBoost: ($79.99)
TUMI Power Pack ($89), TUMI Wireless Charging Power Pack ($99) and the Kate Spade shell ($79). The Motorola Moto Z Force Droid Edition will feature a fingerprint scanner and will be treated with a nanocoating to protect the phone from spills and light rain.

This is the second consecutive year that Verizon and Motorola are re-branding a Motorola Moto handset and placing it at the top of the DROID exo-system. Last year, the Motorola Moto X Force became the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 in the U.S.

Gah! So torn between the Force and the new Nexus (both pending more specific details). The Force seems amazing but it's soo large! If the Nexus is the same size or larger, I'm definitely team Force. But as of now, I'm so conflicted. (Really excited to get away from my Moto X 2014 (terrible max&min brightness)).

Well, complaining about phone sizes is like running straight against a brick wall. This will be the norm for here on, at least for flagships. Dislike big phones too, but hey, what can we do?

I just wish the dumb 'Moto' text was gone, that would be a solid amount of mm shaved off of the device (and the FP scanner on the back). But what can you do, like you said! Guess I'll have to see how it fits in my hand. Also, anyone else having trouble logging in and commenting? I have to open an incognito window in order to log in. (Problem is on both my computers).

Unlikely seeing as how they're probably using the space underneath it. Still, if they made the phone 2 mm thicker they could have done a boat load more and saved on height.

That chin is comically so big their priority are wrong, thin but looks not proportional. If you think about it top seller phone are usually has symetrical design because it looks nicer.

The only explanation for the huge bottom bezel is that the magnet bar and fps both occupy that much space, so to fully "take advantage" of all space vertically, they add a moto branding.

Just release them already ffs.. I mean 2 launches for one phone? Before the release date itself? How dumb can they be.? Goodluck with the unlocked version in september, When they'll be up against sharks like the IP7, GN7 and the nexus phones.. The IP7 alone will probably soak up the entire Motorola division in a week. Poor marketing to say the least. Otherwise I'm of the opinion that the MOTO Z phones are probably the best and most innovative smartphones since the original iphone, in a world of same same phones. But even then one can't have enough of common sense..

Good marketing are only work if the product are actually good. If people can sell bad product with good marketing then it's called scam.

The funny thing is these phones likely won't appeal to the masses. It's just the tech community and people like us who appreciate all this. Look at the galaxy s7, it's arguably simple and performs well in every aspect. ( good all rounder) which is what most people want. And good luck in September, by then this will be considered last gen flagship.

Hopefully the reviews, if any, prove to be positive.
