The super-thin Moto Z is due for a refresh this year and the alleged renders match up closely with previous leaks of the flagship smartphone.

The first Moto Z smartphone launched late last year as a flagship model from the Chinese manufacturer. Now that we're nearing its first birthday, rumors have been cropping up about a potential second generation model launching before the end of 2017. Such a model would have to compete directly against the Galaxy S8 and next generation iPhone as Moto smartphones outside of the Z series are otherwise entry-level or mainstream.

Twitter account "SlashLeaks" recently posted a low quality "Moto Z2" render showing off the phone from all sides. Though the image can't yet be confirmed, the design looks awfully familiar to an unknown Moto Z smartphone inadvertently unveiled in a Moto Mod advertisement.

Additionally, the design of the leaked renders corresponds well to changes made in the Moto G5. The fingerprint sensor and Lenovo logo, for example, appear very much alike. It's possible that the render could be a Moto Z2 Force intended for the North American market with the dual rear cameras being a major standout update from the original. Other core specifications have not been revealed.

The rumored Moto Z2 will very likely be almost identical to the original Moto Z according to Lenovo themselves. The manufacturer stated during the unveiling of the Moto Z that any direct successor should be compatible with existing Moto Z Mod accessories, so core design features will carry forward with few deviations.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
