Moto's latest is set to arrive on August 10 in the United States and will hit global markets, including the United Kingdom and Australia later in 2017.
Lenovo Moto Z2 Force entrance is getting so much attention nowadays. Those phones were all solid; however, consumers didn't quite know how to differentiate them.
As phones go, the Moto Z2 is exceptionally thin at just 6mm. 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. The current design language the company implements focuses on aluminum bodies.
We've been talking about the Moto Z2 Force from Motorola since April of this year when rumored renders created from CAD dimensions were leaked to the public.
Andy Rubin helpfully pointed that out when he debuted the Essential phone in late May, along with its own $199 360-degree camera.
Rounding out the Moto Z2 Force is 64GB of built-in storage that's expandable via a microSD card, Android 7.1 Nougat, and USB Type-C.
Motorola also announced a new Moto Mod today in the Moto 360 Camera, which can capture 360-degree 4K video as well as 150-degree wide angle photos when it launches on August 10th. With an aperture of f/2.0, the sensors appear to be pretty capable, though we'll have to take it out for a test run to see for ourselves. With full carrier support, a top-of-the-line processor, and an established library of mods, the Moto Z Force might just be the phone to bring modular to the masses.
No, the real concern here is still battery life: the Z2 Force has one of the smallest batteries of any device running a Snapdragon 835.
The announcement comes shortly after the Moto Z2 Play was released along with a trio of new Moto Mods that connect to the back of the phone and add extra capabilities, such as wireless charging. The only plausible explanation behind this is to get you to buy the Moto Mod battery pack according to Evan Blass. The Z2 Force, at the moment, has launched in the USA, while the other countries launch is unknown for now. You can take images with the depth of field effect or modify the "image background or foreground to black and white, while keeping the main subject in color mode". Both are made of aluminium, although the Z2 Force's build is tougher than the Play, as you'd expect given that name. There's no headphone jack, however, aping the position of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
