The Moto Z is Motorola’s latest and greatest flagship currently available, and it packs a nifty spec sheet in order to give it the best chance possible against competitors. Unfortunately, the device has only been available through Verizon since its launch, but as of today it is up for pre-order from either Amazon or best buy.
The 5.5 incher will set you back a hefty $699.99 from either site, and will come unlocked for use on any GSM networks. As a side note, the model starts at 64GB for the base model, as opposed to the previous 32GB.
The Moto Z Play is also now up for pre-order, but at a more reasonable $449.99, again from both online retailers.
The Moto Z will start shipping on the 2nd October for Amazon, and on the 3rd October from Best Buy and Motorola. The Moto Z Play will be out a little later, seeing the first orders shipping on the 20th October.
Ordering the Moto Z from Motorola’s site will bag you a free Charcoal Ash Wood shell to customize your device. If you buy it through Amazon instead, you’ll get $200 off the Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod, effectively bringing the price of the mod down to $50.
If you prefer to get the Moto Z Play, you will receive the Incipio offGRID Moto Mod with your order for free from Best Buy. This mod is selling for $79.99 from Amazon.
Although it’s a good thing that we’re seeing unlocked models available now, it may be a little late considering that there are countless other options out there that were available long before this unlocked variant of the Moto Z.
