Motorola’s Moto Z2 Pressure is now suitable with the 5G Moto Mod, that means you possibly can add 5G compatibility to the two-year-old cellphone on Verizon’s 5G community. In a weblog publish, Motorola mentioned the performance will probably be accessible from this week. Beforehand, the 5G Moto Mod was solely suitable with the Moto Z3 and Z4.
In addition to including 5G performance to a 3rd machine, Motorola says that it’s additionally placing out a software program replace that may enable its telephones to share energy intelligently with the 5G Moto Mod. If the ability stage of both the Mod or the cellphone drops beneath a sure stage, then the opposite machine will give it some energy (relying on whether or not it has sufficient to share, after all). Motorola additionally says this replace will enhance obtain speeds on Verizon’s 5G community. The replace will probably be accessible for each the Z2 Pressure and Z3, and can come pre-installed on Z4’s bought from Verizon.
Verizon’s 5G community is presently accessible in a complete of 9 US cities, and the service plans to roll it out to greater than 30 cities by the top of the yr.
Verizon doesn’t appear to have any plans to promote new Z2 Pressure telephones, and given we weren’t too impressed with it when it launched again in 2017 we wouldn’t advise you to choose one up now. Nonetheless, in case you’re presently utilizing one of many telephones, reside in an present protection space, and need to check out 5G with out shopping for an entire new handset, then you definitely now have the choice. We’ll admit that this makes for a fairly particular Venn diagram of customers, however you possibly can’t fault Motorola for making an attempt.
