The Moto Z2 is the flagship offering from Motorola for 2017. Successor to the Moto Z, the Z2 has been making the rounds online for quite a while. Reports say that it might be unveiled on the 30th of June along with the Moto X4. The Z2 has popped up on GFXBench, again, giving us a look at the hardware it’ll sport.
Gizchina News of the week
The GFXBench listing reveals the major specs of the Moto Z2. It features a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Under the hood lies probably lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clocked at 2.4GHz, standard to many flagships. The 835 is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage.
On the back lies a single 12MP sensor capable of 4K video and a 5MP sensor on the front for selfies and video calling. Although many manufacturers are opting for a dual camera setup, it is surprising to see only a single camera setup on the Moto Z2. If we are to speculate, the reason behind this might be the incompatibility that will arise with the Hasselblad True Zoom Moto mod if the Z2 were to sport a dual camera setup. The Moto Z2 will be compatible with all the Moto mods like it’s predecessor.
The Z2 will run Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box with Moto’s minimalistic changes on top. Currently, the phone is expected to see the light of day on the 30th of June, so stay tuned for updates!
Z2 Force has dual cameras and full mod compatibility Z2 doesn’t because it’s the baseline model. Z2 Force will have higher specs. Doesn’t have anything to do with silly Hasselblad mod camera compatibility.
All leaked press renders since April show the Z2 Force with dual cameras. Z2, Z2 Force and Z2 Play (mid tier) are three completely separate phones, all with mod compatibility. Don’t confuse them.
