If you have one of Lenovo/Motorola’s Moto Z or Moto Z Force flagships in your possession, you’ll be happy to know that the Android 7.0 Nougat update will soon be on its way to your smartphone. Motorola announced that the over-the-air update will commence this week for customers.

Besides bringing all of the OS improvements and features that you'd expect with Nougat, Motorola also announced that both the Moto Z and Moto Z Force are Daydream-ready. There are very few Daydream-ready smartphones on the market today, with the most high-profile offerings being Google's Pixel and Pixel XL.

"Daydream offers an unprecedented opportunity to dive into a kaleidoscope of experiences," writes Motorola. "With Daydream, you can explore new worlds, attend a sporting event or concert, enjoy your own personal cinema and so much more."

Of course, to take advantage of Daydream VR, you will need to purchase Google's Daydream View headset, which will set you back $79.

For those that haven't been keeping score, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force both feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 5.5-inch QHD display, 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB internal storage and a microSD slot. You’ll find an impressive 13MP rear cameras along with a 5MP front-facing unit. The Moto Z includes a 2600 mAh internal battery, while the Moto Z Force steps it up a bit with a 3500 mAh battery (and is a bit thicker in the process).

And of course, both the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force support Moto Mods, which allow you to add functionality to the phones using magnetically-attached rear backplates. These includes the JBL SoundBoost Mod, a 2200 mAh Power Pack Mod, and the Hasselblad 4116 True Zoom Mod.
