When Lenovo announced the Moto Z and Z Force back in June, they also said the devices would become Verizon exclusives over the summer as ‘DROID’ editions. This ultimately came true, however those of you wanting your own Moto Z on another network or simply unlocked were left out in the cold. Of course, it was always known these devices wouldn’t stay Verizon exclusives forever, but there was no telling when the handsets would make their way to other carriers or other locations of resell. However, it’s now been discovered that over on Amazon, the Moto Z and recently announced Z Play are currently available for preorder and will begin shipping and become for sale starting October 2nd.
As you can see in the screenshots above, the Moto Z will be going on sale for $699 with 64GB of storage. It’s unclear how much the 32GB model of the handset will cost or if it’ll ever make it to the market, however if that information is obtained we’ll update this article.
Similarly, the Moto Z Play will be going on sale October 20th (18 days after the standard Z) and include 32GB of storage and run for a slightly-less-expensive $449. Again, it’s unclear if a second storage configuration will ever become available, however we’ll keep you posted.
Also found on Amazon is the Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod which goes for $299 alongside the Lenovo Insta-Share Projector for the same price. Regarding the former, this Mod will be available the same day as the Moto Z, while the latter will begin shipping in 3-4 weeks. In my opinion, both these Mods are pretty overpriced, but that’s up to you to decide.
Both the Moto Z and Z Play will be available in Lunar Grey from Amazon, while the Z Force still seems to be unavailable at this point. We’ll let you know when word about this upgraded version of the 2016 flagship becomes available unlocked.
