Renders leaked last week offered tech enthusiasts a fuzzy look at the upcoming Moto Z2 Force. These confirmed that the upcoming smartphone will look similar to its 2016 predecessor. However, there is one thing that is worthy of note. Tech manufacturer Lenovo is bringing back the headphone jack.
The Moto Z Force from last year sported a big battery pack, a camera with a higher resolution compared to Moto Z, and a shatterproof display. It was thin enough at 7mm but was still capable of housing a 3.5mm headphone jack. This move by Lenovo, though understandable with the Moto Z, was a senseless one according to The Verge.
But the latest in the Z series line is thinner than last year's version at 5.99mm. And fortunately, Lenovo has decided to bring back the headphone jack to the Moto Z2 Force. Hopefully, Z series fans have not thrown away their headphones yet as the next in line in the Z series will support them again.
Aside from the return of the audio device port, leaks also show that the successor to the 2016 Moto Z Force will sport a dual-lens camera. It will also be powered by Snapdragon 835, the same Qualcomm chip that is inside the soon-to-launch Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.
Android Authority also points out that some aspects of the Moto Z Force will also be present in the new Lenovo phone. For instance, the Moto Z2 Force will also be able to support MotoMods, a feature that allows a user to modify their device.
Lastly, tech pundits also report that Sprint will use the antennas rumored to be inside the Moto Z2 Force for faster download speeds. This means that Lenovo's 2017 Moto Z will no longer be a Verizon exclusive and will be available from other telecommunication companies.
