After a small break of sorts, leakster @OnLeaks is back with a new leak. The leakster, along with Android Authority, has published a set of alleged Moto Z2 Force CAD renders. In usual fashion, there is a 360-degree video as well, giving us a clear look at the handset’s design from all angles.
The renders make it quite clear that the Moto Z2 Force will not be very different from its predecessor in the design department. We see the similar camera bump as well as the pogo pin connectors for MotoMods at the back. However, quite a few significant differences are also clearly visible here. Perhaps the most shocking of all is the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Moto Z family launched last year were Motorola’s first flagship handsets to not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, it looks like the analog port is going to make a comeback with this year’s Moto Z lineup.
Keeping up with the times, Motorola Moto Z2 Force will be equipped with a dual-camera setup at the back. A lot of new smartphones launched this year feature a dual-camera setup, so it is no surprise to see Motorola jump on the dual-camera bandwagon as well. Other notable highlights include a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, more rounded edges, dual-LED flash for selfies, and repositioned antenna bands. Apparently, the Moto Z2 Force will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 octa-core SoC and support Cat.16 download speeds of up to 1Gbps. According to the leak, the Moto Z2 Force will in fact support those download speeds on the Sprint network. Quite obviously, this means the Moto Z2 Force will not be a Verizon-exclusive like its predecessor. In addition to Sprint, leakster Evan Blass has “confirmed” that the Moto Z2 Force will be sold by T-Mobile as well.
The Moto Z2 Force is rumored to feature the same 5.5-inch sized display as the Moto Z Force, but will be slightly bigger in terms of physical dimensions. While the Moto Z Force measures 155.9 x 75.8mm, the Moto Z2 Force will measure 156.32 x 76.36mm. However, it will boast a thinner 5.99mm profile when compared to last year’s model. Unfortunately, the slimmer profile suggests Motorola might downgrade the battery capacity by some margin.
