Recent leak points to what could be the new Motorola Moto Z2 Force. Oh, and the 3.5mm headset jack is back.

Both "Motorola Moto Z Force" and "LG G6" have remarkable similarities, checking each device side by side in terms of specs, features and others. This must not have gone down so well with consumers as the company has now done a complete turn-around and added it back in, according to. The leakster, along with Android Authority, has published a set of alleged Moto Z2 Force CAD renders.

This Moto Z2 Force resembles the Moto Z2 that leaked out last week, packing a dual rear camera setup, connector pins for Moto Mods, a front-facing camera flash, and a pill-shaped fingerprint reader. Expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the Moto Z2 Force allegedly sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and largely resembles the Z Force from 2016. What's more, Sprint is also said to receive at least one high-end Moto-branded phone in 2017. The smartphone will be sold across the U.S. by a number of other wireless carriers such as T-Mobile.

Motorola recently launched its updated G-series smartphones, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Apparently, the Moto X (2017) is also in the works alongside a new low-end Moto C smartphone. So if you're a human who frequently drops things and would prefer dealing with scratches instead of a cracked screen, the as-yet-unannounced Moto Z2 Force might be worth a look.

The Moto Z2 Force will see the reappearance of the 3.5 mm headphone port.

Design wise, this new model has a 5.5-inch display and comes with a Z series' signature.

The rendered graphic also includes a dual-camera, while the original Z Force only included one. Both Moto C models will be sold in gold, red, black and silver color options and both will run Android Nougat out of the box. It will be thinner than its predecessor at 6mm (8.5mm with the camera bump).
