After getting done with launching budget and mid-range for this year, Motorola has finally launched its flagship of 2017. The Moto Z2 Force Edition comes loaded with the best hardware the company has on offer plus a brand new mod.
Let’s look at the phone first. First off, there’s a slight change in the naming convention. Motorola has added the ‘Edition’ to the name of the phone, so there’s a chance that there will be regular, non-force edition of the phone. The Moto Z2 Force Edition (FE) is the first phone by the company to have dual cameras. The dual camera setup is similar to the one used by Huawei on its phones where one is monochrome sensor while the other one is color. Both have the 12MP resolution. Its camera can also shoot UltraHD videos.
The Moto Z2 Force Edition is made up of strongest of the materials which make its display shatter and crack proof. It is also wrapped in 7000 series aluminum.
The Moto Z2 Force Edition has Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM to keep things running smoothly. There’s 64GB storage onboard and option to extend further with microSD card. The phone has a 2K HD AMOLED display. Its 2,730 mAh battery is probably the only thing which doesn’t go along with its status of the flagship.
The Moto Z2 Force Edition is slated to go on sale on August 10 and you can pre-order one today. It will come carrier unlocked, but will work with all major US carriers and cost $720.
Bonus: Moto 360 Camera mod
The new camera mod that works with not just Moto Z2 Force Edition but any compatible Motorola phone. The mod turns your phone into a 360 degree camera. The Moto 360 Camera mod can capture videos in 4K UltraHD resolution and record 3D audio. It also lets you take stills in 155 degrees wide angle. The Moto 360 Camera mod will be available from August 10 along with Moto Z2 Force Edition for $300.
