Moto Z2 Force lands in China as the $1,507 Moto Z 2018 Kingsman VIP Special Edition

Huawei is usually the one to play naming games in the mobile world, but today Motorola’s proved it can dabble in that realm too. See, Lenovo’s subsidiary has launched a new smartphone in China – the Moto Z 2018. It even comes with a limited edition variation, called Moto Z 2018 Kingsman VIP Special Edition.

Yet despite the name this is nothing but a Moto Z2 Force with a gold M logo on the back and a bunch of accessories thrown in for the special edition. The specs are exactly the same, the look is exactly the same, you get the idea – for all intents and purposes, this is a Z2 Force, just going by another name for whatever reason.

The Moto Z 2018 Kingsman VIP Special Edition is truly special in that it’s priced at CNY 9,999 which means a whopping $1,507 or 1,282. For that huge amount of cash you receive the same phone, but it will arrive in a box that’s shaped like a briefcase (to go with the movie tie-in, get it?).

The special package also contains a VIP card, a TurboPower battery mod, a wireless charging mod, a USB Type-C to 3.5mm adapter, a leather flip case, a 45th anniversary notepad, a pair of USB Type-C Hi-Fi headphones, and (surprise!) a warranty card. The special edition smartphone is only going to be offered in black. At the moment there’s no information on whether a non-special Moto Z 2018 will be released in China, and if so how much it will end up retailing for.
