Late last week, we saw a few renders make their rounds which showed off the supposed Moto Z2. These renders showed that Motorola and Lenovo would be keeping the same design as the original Moto Z, with a few changes, including a redesigned home button and dual-camera setup.
The Moto Z Force was released last year alongside the Moto Z and offered a more rugged option for those looking to jump on board with modularity. Now, the folks over at Android Authority have obtained a series of renders from @OnLeaks showcasing the Moto Z2 Force.
The changes here are subtle, as it seems that Motorola is definitely committed to the modular movement, while all others are moving away. However, there is one feature that is making a comeback which should leave many potential owners extremely happy – the return of the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Additionally, the renders confirm a slight design when looking at the edges of the Z2 Force. There is a thin band that goes all the way around the device, which will be used by Sprint to bring “Cat. 16 download speeds to the Moto Z2 Force”. This is a huge revelation as it confirms that the Moto Z lineup won’t be confined to just Verizon, and at least the Z2 Force will include the Snapdragon 835 SoC.
Although specs were not leaked regarding the Z2 Force, we now know the dimensions of the device. Surprisingly, the Z2 Force will be slightly thinner than its predecessor while being a bit larger overall. The Z2 Force will measure in at 156.32 x 76.36 x 5.99 mm compared to the Z Force’s measurements of 155.9 x 75.9 x 7 mm.

In addition to this series of renders of the Z2 Force, @evleaks decided to get in on the fun and give us a look at the logo for the device. Blass also seemingly confirmed that the device won’t be a Verizon exclusive, instead pointing to the fact that T-Mobile will carry it.
