Moto Z2 "officially" confirmed to have dual cameras

Most companies try to keep their upcoming products under wraps but some things sometimes slip through the cracks. And sometimes, the companies themselves let those slip, intentionally or otherwise. We're still not sure which of the two is the case here, but Motorola has definitely spilled the biggest bean about its upcoming flagship. In an invite for what could only be the Moto Z2 or Moto Z2 Force, it not just hints but practically confirms that it will, indeed, have two cameras on its back.

The dual camera rumor had been going on for quite a while but Motorola, like Samsung, has been pretty conservative in that aspect. Besides, it was trying to sell a Moto Mods system that would, in theory, give a smartphone dual cameras long after it left the factory. And while the mid-range Moto Z2 Play didn't have one as some might have hoped, at least the high-end model will.

It sent out invites for a 27th June event with the tagline "Moto is back", a comeback it has been promising since last year. But more important than that claim is the smartphone that the woman with a rather mischievous, knowing smile is holding. In plain view is the camera, which seems to show two sensors. The design of the camera does match leaked renders that have been going around the net.

That dual camera is actually the only immediately visible change we expect to see on the Moto Z2 and Z2 Force. After all, it has to stay compatible with existing and future Moto Mods, so the overall design and dimensions will most likely remain the same. Inside, however, we do expect the latest specs, like a 5.5-inch 2560x1440 screen and 4 GB RAM. However, there are murmurs that there is a chance it would run on a Snapdragon 821 instead of an 835, which would be suicide for Moto.

The Moto Z2's rather unassuming and, in this case, unchanged appearance belies the potential it possesses, realized through Moto Mods. Motorola and Lenovo, whose name is thankfully absent in the branding, are banking on this modular appeal to keep its smartphones in the game. So far, however, the jury still seems to be out on that one.
