At an event in New York City today, Lenovo took to the stage to announce the Moto Z2 Force, saying that it wants to relaunch Motorola as a major smartphone brand and that it will "challenge everyone, including competitors, because we see the industry as stagnant".
The front panel of the Moto Z2 Force features a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display with a fingerprint scanner embedded into the Home button, below. Motorola points out that you'll also be able to edit 360-degree pictures and videos directly on the devices.
Motorola stands alone. Last year LG and Google both killed their respective modular phones. The design of the Z2 Force is very similar to last year's handset, and it looks almost identical to renders that were leaked a few days ago.
Motorola's second generation Z Force arrived in the middle of 2017 with quite a powerful spec sheet. It won't come cheap, though - pricing varies by carrier, but the phone will cost about $750 either way.
It's worth noting that the Z2 Force packs Galaxy S8-grade specs, featuring Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage that can be expanded up to a whopping 2TB with a microSD card. The storage is not expandable though.
Talking about the camera department, the device comes with a pair of 12MP sensors on the back with rapid phase detection auto focus and laser focus up to 5 meters. Lenovo Moto Z2 Play only has Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 and a dust proof characteristic, making the Moto Z2 Force an upgraded version of it. Instead, the company has a water-repellant coating that might save it from a splash, but that's about it.
Straight form the box the Z2 Force will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Check out detailed specifications and features of Moto Z2 Force smartphone below.
The only thing about this thinner, lighter Moto Z2 is a smaller 2,730-mAh battery; a far cry from Z Force's 3,500-mAh battery.
The Moto 360 name is back, but not in the way you think.
Instead of having only one major carrier stock the phone, like a year ago, Motorola said all four of the largest carriers-Verizon, AT&T (t), T-Mobile, and Sprint-will sell the phone directly in their stores. The device will be available August 10 on all major USA carrier a well as Best Buy and other retailers with a price starting at $30 per month. For a limited time, buyers will get a free Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod, a $299 value, via mail.
