Lenovo just unveiled its new Moto lineup and there’s a lot to love. The company is launching two Moto Z smartphones on Verizon along with a handful of Moto Mod accessories that snap on magnetically to add extra features.

This summer, you’ll be able to pick up the Moto Z Droid Edition and Moto Z Force Droid Edition, which are exclusive to Verizon. Both devices offer flagship hardware with a few key differences. The main thing to know is that the regular Moto Z Droid Edition offers a super-thin design, while the Moto Z Force Droid model beefs up the specs and adds an extra-long battery life.

First, here’s what the two Droids have in common. Both phones feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 32GB of expandable storage, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a fingerprint sensor and a water-repellent nano-coating that protects against spills. They’re both available in a black and gray design, while the Moto Z Droid Edition comes in white and gold as well.

The Moto Z Droid Edition is also the thinnest flagship phone on the market—according to Verizon. It offers a 2600mAh battery with TurboPower charging (8 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes) and a 13-megapixel rear camera. The Moto Z Force Droid Edition ups that to a 3500mAh battery (15 hours of battery life in 15 minutes of charging) and a 21-megapixel rear camera.

If that’s not enough, you can improve your new Droid even more with Moto Mods, which snap on easily thanks to a clever modular design. At launch, Lenovo is offering a JBL SoundBoost Speaker with a 10-hour battery, a Moto Insta-Share Projector with a built-in kickstand, and battery packs with unique designs by Kate Spade and Tumi. We’ll see more Moto Mods launch in the future, and the company even plans to offer a development kit for smaller firms looking to support the new phones.

Lenovo didn’t say exactly when the new phones will be available or how much they’ll cost, but we should know pretty soon. Pre-orders are set kick-off next month before an official release on Verizon this summer.
