Motorola Moto Z2 Force Edition launched with shatterproof display

The Moto Z2 Force Edition comes as a premium device offering by Motorola and is priced at $720 ( ~ Rs 46,000).

The Moto Z2 Force Edition has officially gotten launched at an event alongside a brand new Moto 360 Camera Mod.

Just as anticipated, Motorola unveiled the Moto Z2 Force on Tuesday, giving all the juicy details on the highlights, including the price and release. Unfortunately, there's no headphone jack, a page taken from Apple's book and the earlier Moto Z smartphone. The smartphone will be available in three colour variants - Lunar Grey, Fine Gold and Super Black starting from August 10. The unit that can be slapped on to the back of the Z2 Force Edition is also capable of shooting 360 video in 4K with 3D sound.

While both models rely on a 5.5-inch AMOLED display, the Moto Z2 Play's offers only 1920 x 1080 resolution.

Motorola's gen-next "Force" device retains all that made it special previous year, and brings forward many improvements to the hardware.

Proving the rumors true, it does come with a dual rear camera set up with two 12 MP sensors coupled with f/2.0 aperture.

The reduction in battery size is probably going to make a lot of Moto fans unhappy, but luckily battery life can be supplemented with the help of the Moto Mods (although you have to pay extra for them). The release date in India has not been specified and it is likely that the phone may not launch in India at all as the company stayed away from the Force variant a year ago. All other Moto Mods will become available soon to Verizon customers, the operator said. There will be an expensive variant of the phone also available with 6GB RAM and 128GB of Internal Storage capacity.

Currently, the device is available in USA and will go on sale on August 10.

Moto announced the phone at a NY press event, and confirmed that it will be coming to the United Kingdom in due course. The Moto Z2 Force will go on sale in Mexico, Brazil, Europe, Middle East, and Africa from "later this summer", the company says. It also features a 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and front flash. The smartphone comes with dual rear cameras and also has the Moto Z series Moto Mods as support.

In the single-core test, the alleged Moto X4 got 824 points while in the multi-core testing the device has acquired 3886 points.
