Unlocked Moto Z Price Higher than You Hoped Michael Kwan August 8, 2016 News Are you excited about the prospect of getting snappy with Moto Mods? It looks like you’ll have to open up your wallet just a tad wider if you do. Motorola announced the Moto Z back in June at Lenovo Tech World and the totally modular Android smartphone will be heading our way next month. If you want an unlocked Moto Z straight from Lenovo, it’s going to set you back a cool $900. That’s in Canada and only if you were to order the unlocked Moto Z directly from Motorola and Lenovo. Realistically, this is no more expensive than other flagship smartphones from the other major manufacturers. Want a new iPhone unlocked? How about a Galaxy Note7? Buying either of those off contract is going to set you back about $1,000. Realistically, the only reason I find the pricing higher than I had expected is that Motorola has been going more affordable in recent years. The Moto E and Moto G lines have provided exceptional value and, up until now, the “flagship” Moto X line has been comparatively cheaper than the competition too. To be fair, the Moto X line has never pushed the spec sheet, but the Moto Z does with its 5.5-inch quad HD AMOLED display, Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, 2,600mAh battery, and 5.2mm thick profile. If you want to be among the first to get an unlocked Moto Z in Canada, then head over to the Motorola website to “register for updates.” That “register” button should turn into a “Buy now” button some time next month.
