OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), July 25, 2017 – Today Motorola announced the upcoming availability of moto z2 force editionTM, the first smartphone expected to deliver gigabit-class LTE speeds while on the Sprint (NYSE: S) 4G LTE network.
The capability to achieve gigabit-class LTE speeds will be added to moto z2 through a maintenance release at a later date. Gigabit speeds are projected to be quick enough to download a high-definition digital movie in less than a minute and to download photos, videos or large files in a flash.
Preordering is available now at www.sprint.com/motoz2 and is the best way to secure moto z2 at launch. It will be available in stores, at sprint.com and 1-800-Sprint1 on Aug. 10. Sprint offers two color options – Super Black and Fine Gold. For a limited time, when you preorder moto z2, get the Insta-Share Projector Moto ModTM FREE! ($299.99 value).1
Sprint is offering moto z2 for $0 down and $33 per month with 18 Sprint Flex lease payments ($792 SRP). For a limited time, lease moto z2 and get another moto z2 lease on us!2 That’s right, get 2-for-1 with Sprint Flex Lease!
With Sprint Flex Lease, customers can lease any phone and have the option to upgrade or purchase later. Unlike other carriers, which require the customer to decide to buy up front, Sprint lets customers make the final decision later, so they don’t get stuck with their old phone. Sprint Flex allows customers to enjoy their phone before deciding what option (upgrade, continue leasing, return or own) works best for their lifestyle. Customers can still choose to buy the phone outright at point of sale.
Fastest Possible Data Speeds
The new moto z2 is Motorola’s most advanced phone ever. It has a sleek, full metal design and a screen that’s guaranteed not to crack or shatter.3 A powerful processor provides the fastest possible data speeds, so you never miss a beat. With Moto ModsTM you can add powerful stereo speakers, a 360° camera, a projector, and 100 percent more battery life – in a snap.
Moto z2 is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile platform with an integrated Snapdragon X16 LTE modem supporting gigabit-class LTE.4 Just a few months ago, Motorola and Sprint demonstrated the first U.S. deployment of gigabit-class LTE live on a commercial network.
“We are excited to bring Motorola’s flagship smartphone, moto z2, into the Sprint product portfolio,” said Ryan Sullivan, vice president of Product Development, Sprint. “This device is extra special for us because it will enable the gigabit-class LTE speeds we look forward to bringing to our customers soon. With these speeds, our customers will be able to download movies and share large files faster than ever.”
In addition, moto z2 is Sprint’s latest HPUE-enabled (High Performance User Equipment) smartphone. HPUE makes the Sprint network experience even better with increased coverage, more capacity and faster speeds on capable devices. HPUE-enabled smartphones are designed to give customers a better overall experience with streaming videos, mobile gaming and other online apps and services. HPUE can extend Sprint’s 2.5GHz coverage by up to 30 percent to nearly match its midband 1.9GHz spectrum performance, including indoors where the majority of wireless traffic is generated.
