When and Where to Buy: Motorola Moto Z2 Force

Moto Z2 Force All Set to Launch | Here's the Features, Price and Details of the Same

Unlike the first gen model that has a glass back that doubles as a fingerprint magnet, the Moto Z2 Force ditches it for brushed metal. You do however get more storage with the Force Edition; 64GB compared with just 32GB on the Play. Here's what the new handset is packing, and why you might buy it instead of rivals from Apple, Samsung, or Google. Moto promises the Z2 Force will still deliver all-day battery life, but with such a significant reduction, most people will want to carry around a TurboPower Pack mod for peace of mind. With the powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 Mobile Platform, the phone also features unbeatable performance, instant responsiveness, and the fastest possible data speeds**** with Gigabit LTE, allowing you to download large files and apps in no time, or stream music and videos - even in Ultra HD.

The Moto 2 Force has a 5.5-inch 2K POLED display with Shattershield protection. Both feature microSD support for memory card expansion, however. The global variant of the Moto Z2 Force will ship with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which is a welcome change from Motorola. Most notably, the Z2 Force takes a pretty big cut in battery capacity this time around, now only sporting a 2,730 mAh cell. The phone doesn't have a headphone jack-just a USB-C port-but as that was also the case with the original Moto Z, it isn't a surprise.

There is laser autofocus, zero shutter lag and depth detection. A new selective focus setting adds a blur effect to the background or foreground of images for a more artsy look and a selective color option lets you change part of your photo to black and white, while keeping the main subject in full color.

The front camera is a 5MP f/2.2 sensor with its own flash and pro mode.

Motorola's 360 Camera Moto Mod is a snap-on back topped with a camera that captures 4K 360-degree videos, 36 audio via four mics, and 150-degree FOV stills. The mods, which range from fancy cameras to fatter batteries, simple connect to the magnet, creating a chunky new device.

For years, Moto fans have been trapped with one choice - Verizon, which is like no choice at all. The device will be available August 10 on all major US carrier a well as Best Buy and other retailers with a price starting at $30 per month.

United Kingdom pricing and availability is to be confirmed but will be available in various European countries, the Middle East and Africa later this summer.
