Lenovo-owned Motorola has finally launched its much anticipated Moto Z2 Force flagship smartphone. The company has revealed that the handset gets a price tag of $720 in the US and will be available on all major wireless carriers in the country on contract. While the carrier unlocked version of the handset will cost you $800.
The handset gets subtle design changes that make it look more refined than last year’s model. In terms of specs, the Moto Z2 Force features a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Also, the display features the company’s proprietary ShatterShiled protective layer which protects the screen from cracking or shattering.
Under the hood, the smartphone gets powered by Qualcomm’s newest Snapdragon 835 processor. The smartphone will be offered in two variants- one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage while the other gets 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. The device also comes with a dedicated microSD slot. However, in the US, the only lower specced model will be available for purchase.
Elsewhere, the Moto Z2 Force comes with a dual-lens camera setup featuring two 12MP Sony IMX386 sensors on the back. One of the lenses takes care of colors while the other one is for monochrome shots. For selfies, the handset features a 5MP front-facing shooter with dual-LED CCT flash just like its predecessor.
Not to forget, the Moto Z2 Force runs Android Nougat 7.1.1 out-of-the-box with subtle Moto MOD enhancements. There’s also a 3.5mm audio jack along with the new USB-Type C port for charging and data transfer. Last but not the least, juicing the smartphone is a 2730mAh battery.
Ther Moto Z2 Force will be available on all major wireless carriers in the US as opposed to being just a Verizon exclusive. The device is now open for pre-orders and will arrive in the US market on August 10.
