They say old habits die hard, and not even new ownership has been able to tweak the terms of the long-standing, infuriating partnership between Motorola and Verizon. Yet again, we’ll see one, nay, two exciting fresh Motos launched on America’s largest wireless service provider before any other carrier or retailer around the world.
Adding insult to injury, it looks like the Lenovo-coordinated Moto Z Force will remain a Big Red exclusive for good, while the slimmer, slightly lower-end Moto Z is set to go on sale as a “Droid Edition” sometime this summer, followed by an unlocked variant in the fall.
Of course, we’ve known all this for the best part of a month, with precise release dates and official pricing details bound to come to light next Thursday. On July 14, starting at 10am ET, we’ll be joining Motorola and Verizon in New York City, as our hopes of a relatively inexpensive modular phone executed differently from the LG G5 likely get crushed to pieces.
