Last years Moto Z was only available in the US via its exclusive carrier deal with Verizon, so while you were able to get the thinner Moto Z from the unlocked markets, you were not able to get the shatter-resistant Moto Z Force with a larger battery from anywhere besides Verizon. Things this year will be different with the Moto Z2 Force.
As per phone leaker Evan Blass, @evleaks, The Moto Z2 Force will be available from at least one other carrier in the US. Blass tweeted a full press render of the Moto Z2 Force in a black color, complete with every angle of the phone and the AT&T branding just above the MotoMod interface area.

Weve still not heard anything about the Moto Z2 Force from Motorola, in fact, weve still got no word on another possible announcement date. There were a couple of rumored dates towards the ends of last month, but June is now over. Last years Moto Z was announced in the early summer, but global availability didnt come until later in the summer.
We should expect the Moto Z2 Force to be announced sometime this summer. We hope its sooner than later.
