The Moto Z and Moto Z Play are on their way, but so far most of the focus has been on the Droid variants of these devices. That “Droid” branding is Verizon exclusive, but just a couple of weeks after their launch on Verizon, unlocked variants of these devices will be on the way.

These impressive modular devices started out as Verizon exclusives, with the the Moto Play variant going for $17 per month, landing you at $408 over the course of two years. The Moto Z is $26 per month, and you’ll end up paying $624 over the same time period. However, starting September 15, unlocked versions will be open for pre-order, meaning non-Verizon subscribers can get into the Moto Z action.

The unlocked versions are slightly pricier at $449.99 for the Moto Z Play and $699.99 for the Moto Z, and they will ship in October. Since they are GSM unlocked, they won’t work on Verizon, but they will work on networks like AT&T and T-Mobile.

What are your thoughts regarding these unlocked versions of the Moto Z and the Moto Z Play? Will you be scooping one of them up come October? Let us know in the comments below!
