Moto Z2 Force Will Bring Back the Traditional 3.5mm Audio Jack

While many might believe that Apple was the first smartphone manufacturer to get rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack, this is completely false. The first tech company that decided to make this major design innovation is Motorola. Moto Z and Z Force were the two smartphones who paved the way for the likes of Apple and HTC. However, it looks like Moto Z2 Force is going to bring back the traditional 3.5mm audio jack.

Leaked Moto Z2 Force Renders

Android Authority and OnLeaks have recently uploaded a couple of render pictures of Moto Z2 Force. We cannot know for sure if these renders are official, but they do seem like the real thing. The most important feature that we can notice in the aforementioned pictures is that Moto Z2 Force is going to bring back the headphone jack. This is actually a good marketing move from Motorola since smartphone fans are not yet ready to give up on their classic headphones that connect through the auxiliary port.

Verizon Exclusive

All of Moto Z2 Force’s predecessors have been Verizon exclusives, but now it looks like this might not be the case. The known and reliable leakster Evan Blass has announced that one of his sources is claiming that every major US carrier is going to offer payment plans for Moto Z2 Force, including AT&T and Sprint. However, rumor has it that Verizon will receive a special DROID edition of the smartphone which will feature a different design but the same specs.


From the looks of it smartphone will ship with a 5.5 inch display and a modular back panel. Moto Z2 Force will be quite thin measuring in at 0.24 inch in comparison with its predecessor that measured at 0.28 inch. Z2 Force has also taken some design cues from the modular Moto G5.


The smartphone is expected to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 835 CPU which will make it fit right in the premium category. However this was to be expected since all of Motorola’s Z devices have been quite powerful when it came to processors. In addition, the processor will more than likely be paired with at least 4GB RAM.
