Motorola’s upcoming flagship smartphone would likely be called the Moto Z2. A tweet by credible smartphone tipster Evan Blass apparently reveals a logo of this year’s Motorola flagship, successor to last year’s Moto Z, the Moto Z2.

The Motorola Moto Z2 is expected to retain the same design elements of its predecessor. Hence, we are likely to see the connector pins on the back of the smartphone to snap onto the many Moto Mods modular accessories.
To recall, last year’s Moto Z range of smartphones including the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z Play allows a user to attach modular accessories snappily thus giving them an extra layer of functionality.
For instance, you could strap on a magnetic battery mod for even more battery life, or add JBL’s Sound Boost Mod to attach a completely new set of speakers on to the phone. You just need to attach a mod to the magnetic pins at the back of the device and enjoy a power-packed audio experience. While you may not find it necessary to use MotoMods with the Moto Z Play, but the ability to use these modules certainly gives these smartphones a lot more utility.
Thus, we also expect the upcoming Moto Z2 to launch with its range own Moto Mods. The rumor mill suggests an Alexa virtual assistant mod for the upcoming Moto Z2, along with the relaunch of RAZR as one of the modular accessories.
Moto Z2: Rumored Specs, Features, and Release Date
Motorola has already confirmed that a successor to last year’s Moto Z is all geared for launch in 2017. In terms of specs, the rumor mill suggests that the Moto Z2 will get powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor bundled with 4GB of RAM.
As far as release date goes, the Moto Z2 could also go official in a month or two, just like last year’s Moto Z and Moto Z Force that were announced sometime. Also, the company has announced its plans to make its Moto Z range of smartphones available on other US carriers as well apart from Verizon. In case you didn’t know, the Moto Z-Droid, Moto Z Force Droid, and Moto Z Play Droid are only exclusive to Verizon.
