The Moto Z2 s specifications have been leaked in the past under the name Moto Z 2017, but a render hadn t surfaced online as yet. This image of the alleged Moto Z2 has been shared by Android Authority claiming to have received from its reliable source. Looking at the image, we can see that there are some changes made in comparison to last year s Moto Z. The physical Home button on the Moto Z2 is pill shaped as opposed to the square shaped one on the Moto Z. The Moto branding has been shifted from the bottom to the top just below the earpiece.
The alleged Moto Z2 actually looks very similar to the recently leaked Moto Z2 Play. The power button and the volume rocker are also placed on the right side as seen in the Moto Z2 Play. The Moto Z2 also appears to have 2.5D curved glass on top which would be a new addition as the Moto Z came with a flat display. The latest leak, however, did not spill anything on the specifications front for the Moto Z2. However, past reports suggest that the Moto Z2 will be powered by Qualcomm s Snapdragon 835 SoC and paired with 4GB of RAM. The Moto Z2 is expected to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box and some leaks even suggested an iris scanner on the smartphone for biometric authentication.

Moreover, the new Moto Mods for the Moto Z series that Motorola announced at the MWC 2017 event were recently leaked online, hinting on an imminent launch. Joining the Moto Z2 this year would be the Moto Z2 Play and the Moto Z Force. More smartphones in the working have rumored to be the Moto X4, the Moto E4 and E4 Plus. Recent leaks have also suggested new smartphones in the Moto G lineup, speculated to be the Moto G 5S and Moto G 5S Plus. Motorola has already launched this year s Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, so new additions to this lineup seems questionable but interesting.
