Moto Z2 Force Smartphone With ShatterShield Display & Dual Rear Cameras Launched

by Karthik Iyer 3

Motorola was said to launch the new Moto Z2 Force smartphone for a long time, however, the company has now made it official at an event yesterday. Everything about this smartphone was already known to us including most of the specifications, however, we did get a couple of interesting announcements along with the device like the new Moto Mod, etc. The smartphone will soon be available in the U.S. and will work all the major carriers. Interested users can pre-order it starting tomorrow or wait for it to come out on August 10th. As far as the pricing is concerned, Motorola is quoting $720 as a base price, however, it will certainly vary by carriers.

Talking about the new Moto Z2 Force, it is a successor to the current generation of the smartphone and it again comes with the same shatterproof display on the front. Speaking of the display it is a 5.5-inch Quad HD POLED display with ShatterShield. The smartphone should fair really well with this type of display and even the body is reinforced with 7000 series aluminum. Internally, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC and it is coupled with 4GB RAM. There is also a 6GB RAM variant which will be sold in international markets.

The smartphone also has 64GB of internal storage which can further be expanded as well via a microSD card. Coming to the optics, things get interesting. It packs dual rear cameras and both the sensors are 12-megapixel sensors. However, out of the two, one is a color sensor, whereas the other one is a monochrome sensor. One of the major disappointment is, however, with the battery. The Moto Z2 Force only packs a 2,730mAh battery which is substantially smaller than the last year’s variant. Motorola claims that it should be good enough to be used for a day.

As mentioned earlier, the smartphone will be available to pre-order in the U.S. starting tomorrow and it will be available from August 10th. As of now, there is no info regarding the pricing with each of the major U.S. carriers and hence it is something that remains to be seen. Also, there is no info regarding the availability of this smartphone in India and hence we suggest you stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info on this.

  • Sounds interesting, but only 2730mAh battery makes it doubtful!

    Is this a strategy to sell the Moto Mods?

    Seriously Only 2730mAh Battery Its $720.
    Why Not Get 128 GB Its 6 GB Ram Variount.

    shatter proof screen, amoled 2K display, powerful SD835 processor and for the first time on any moto device, a dual camera setup, but very small battery for that slim design…
