Motorola Launched Moto Z and Moto Z Force with Moto Mods
Motorola launched Moto Z and the Moto Z Force at an event in San Francisco. The two phones are the new beginning for Motorola, which is now a Lenovo-owned company. These are high-end phones and they replace the Moto X phones in the Moto line-up.
These are also somewhat unique. The Moto Z has an incredibly thin design. It is among the thinnest and most powerful phones ever released. Both Moto Z and the Moto Z Force have all-metal body. Let’s take a better look at hardware and top features of the two phones.
These two Phones has a new system for accessory add-ons called Moto Mods. The Mods attach to the back of the phone via magnets and provide a new look, improved audio, a projector, or other extra features.
The Moto Mods are modular accessories for the Moto Z smartphones. Attach an accessory to the 16-pin port on the back of the phone and the Z becomes something new. Currently three Moto Mods – JBL speaker, a projector, a battery pack – are available.
A projector called InstaShare makes the phone huge but adds a big battery and kickstand while turning your phone into a wall-sized screen. Another, built with JBL, adds a big speaker.
Processor: The Moto-Z and the Moto-Z Force uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor which has the top speed of 2.2 GHz. Actually, this is a quad-core processor which has two high-performance cores running at 2.15GHz. The other two cores run at 1.6GHz.
RAM: Both phones come with 4GB low-power DDR4 RAM. The low-power bit helps save the battery.

Screen: Both the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force have 5.5-inch screen. The resolution is 1440p. However, the screen is one difference between these two devices. The screen of the Moto Z Force is shatterproof.
Rear camera: This is another difference between the two phones. The Motorola Z has a 13-megapixel camera with F1.8 lens. The Motorola Z Force has a 21-megapixel camera. Both phones have optical image stabilisation and both support features like phase-detect auto focus. Optical image stabilization and laser autofocus help you take beautiful, true-to-life pictures in any light. The high-resolution 21 MP camera captures moments in crystal clear detail. Just as you remember.
Front camera: Both have 5-megapixel with F2.2 lens.With a front-facing 5 MP camera and extra front flash, you’ll always look your best—even in low light. Plus, it includes a wide-angle lens, which is great for fitting friends in the picture.
Weight: The Moto Z weighs 136 grams while the Moto Z Force weighs 163 grams. Also, the Moto Z has a 5.2-mm body while the Moto Z Force has a 7mm shell.
Software: Both Moto Z phones run pure Android with 6.0 Marshmallow.
