Moto Z

Motorola’s latest flagship smartphone, the Moto Z, will be the first third-party Android device to support Google’s Daydream, the company announced today.

Motorola will begin rolling out Android Nougat to Verizon-branded Moto Z Force and Moto Z smartphones “this week.” The update will also make both devices compatible with Google’s recently released Daydream View headset.

On its support website, Motorola says Nougat will come to other Moto Z regional variants soon.

“These are the first smartphones from another manufacturer to be recognized by Google as Daydream-ready devices – a distinction given to phones that have been certified for the Daydream platform and are built for VR with high-resolution displays, ultra-smooth graphics and high-fidelity sensors for precise head tracking,” says the company on its blog.
