Motorola in association with American network carrier Verizon, are hosting an event next week in the New York city to officially reveal the price and release details of the company's flagship Moto Z series phones.
Motorola owned by Lenovo originally unveiled the Moto Z and Moto Z Force in June. During the launch the company had announced to release the devices in the summer, and for a limited period , they would remain exclusive to Verizon under Droid series and later hit stores with support for other network carriers under generic Moto Z series moniker.
As promised, Verizon and Motorola are now ready to launch Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid on July 14, CNET reported.
For the uninitiated, Moto Z and Z Force series phones share most of the features, but differ in three key aspects. The former comes with Gorilla Glass 4 display shield, 13MP primary and a smaller 2,600mAh battery, whereas the latter boasts Motorola's proprietary ShatterShield display protection, 21MP snapper on the back and a bigger 3,500mAh cell.
Rest of the features such as display size (& resolution), mobile OS, RAM, storage and front camera remain same.[full specification details below]
