Moto Z2 Force Rumors: The Smartphone Won't Be A Verizon Exclusive According To Prolific Industry Tipster
It seems that the Moto Z2 Force will be available for other US network carriers. Reportedly the smartphone won't be a Verizon exclusive after all.
According to prolific industry tipster Evan Blass, there is a possibility that other leading carriers might sell the device. Blass made the assertion on Twitter today, and he believes that T-Mobile can package the phone on its network plans.
Aside from the two companies, AT&T, Sprint and, US Cellular might also be allowed to sell the phone despite being omitted from the tweet. Although the veracity of this information seems to be dubious, some of Blass' previous leaks have come to fruition.
Sources that are close to the matter have indeed confirmed that the Moto Z2 Force won't be a Verizon exclusive. Previously, some reports claimed that Sprint owns the exclusive rights to sell the phone.
However, the same sources reiterated (including Evan Blass) that the new Moto Z device would be spread out to different US network carriers. Blass also shared the possible logo of the Moto Z2 Force as shown below.
