The Moto Z is just 5.2mm thin and sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display. The ultra-light, Moto Z is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor. The Moto Z specs also include a massive 4GB of RAM. The smartphone will come with 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage capacity. The internal memory can be expanded up to 2TB via dedicated microSD card slot.

The smartphone will come packed with the fastest TurboPower charging capability which helps the device to stay alive for 30 hours, claims Motorola. “You’ll get up to 8 hours of power in just 15 minutes with TurboPower when you finally need a boost,” added Motorola in a blog post.

In the camera department, there will be a 13-megapixel main camera sensor with OIS (optical image stabilization) and laser autofocus. The front-facing selfie camera is equipped with a 5MP sensor.

Starting in September, the Lenovo Moto Z will be available worldwide along with the latest Moto Mods. The unlocked variant of the smartphone can be purchased from moto.com and at various retailers from this fall. With the help of Moto Mods, users will be able to customize their Moto Z.

Moreover, featuring the next generation of Moto ShatterShield technology, Moto Z Force is equipped with similar specs and features as Moto Z. What makes the difference is the remarkable battery capacity. The Moto Z Force is said to boast up to 40 hours of battery life. The TurboPower will help juice up the device “up to 15 hours of battery life with just a 15-minute charge.”

The Moto Z Force specs also include a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera sensor with OIS, Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and laser autofocus.

The DROID Editions of both Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be available in the U.S. and will be exclusive to Verizon. Online retailer Best Buy will also offer the Moto Z DROID family handsets.
