Moto and Verizon have taken the wraps off their latest round of Droid handsets, bringing two new models to market on the U.S.'s biggest network. Both Droids bring top-level internals to the table, but there are a few significant differences to note. The regular Moto Z Droid Edition packs a 13-megapixel OIS camera and a 2,600mAh battery, while the Moto Z Force Droid Edition (gasp) ups the camera to 21 megapixels and the battery to an ample 3,500mAh. And as the name suggests, Force owners will also benefit from Moto's ShatterShield technology to protect from drops and scrapes.
Full specs can be found below.
