[Update: Not launching outside US/Canada] The Motorola Moto Z4 launches June 13th on Verizon for $499

Update (6/13/19 @ 12:54 PM ET): The Moto Z4 is available now for purchase and we now know it won’t be for sale outside of the US and Canada.

The Moto Z4 may have already been purchased and received by one lucky customer, but it’s not officially for sale yet. That changes soon. Verizon has announced that the Moto Z4 will go on sale starting June 13th for $499.99. Customers who purchase a 5G Moto Mod will even get free 5G Ultra Wideband service thrown in.

We first started hearing about the Moto Z4 back in March when leaked renders showed up. Those renders proved to be dead-on accurate, but the specifications were way off. What was first thought to be a high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 device turned out to be a mid-range phone with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675.

As mentioned, the Moto Z4 will be available from Verizon starting on June 13th. Customers can pick up the device for $20.83 per month for 24 months on Verizon Device Payment (0% APR). Customers who switch to Verizon or add a new line can get the phone for only $10 per month for 24 months and the 5G Moto Mod for $199.99. Existing customers can save $100 if they buy the Moto Z4 on the Device Payment plan. 5G Ultra Wideband usually costs $10 per month but is included for free for those who buy the phone with the Moto Mod on Verizon’s Above Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited plans.

Are you interested in the Moto Z4 at all? There will also be an unlocked model available from Amazon eventually, as we already saw.

Update: Not launching outside US/Canada

As expected, the Moto Z4 will not be launching outside of the US and Canada. A Motorola spokesperson confirmed this to TechRadar, saying “the franchise is very strong in North America and an important part of our 5G strategy in the U.S., which we developed with Verizon in the US only.” The statement did also say they will “continue to evaluate if the Moto Z4 will be available in other markets,” but based on the Moto Z3, we wouldn’t hold our breath for that.

For those that do live in the US, you can purchase the phone today from Verizon for $10 per month of $499.
