The Moto Z2 Force is the most powerful modular Android phone ever

Last year's Moto Z Force was available only on Verizon, but Motorola says it will sell versions of the Z2 Force for all the major carriers in the USA starting August 10.

The Z2 Force Edition, as expected comes with a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED display protected with the company's proprietary ShatterShield technology with a four-year shatterproof guarantee.

The Moto 360 Camera allows for 360 imaging and video in 4K as well as wide angle imaging up to 150 degrees. That gives the phone, which also will be sold at Best Buy (bby) and on Motorola's web site, considerably wider distribution than last year's model and will expose many more potential buyers to the unique modular add-on features.

Last year's exclusive deal with Verizon worked, but broader distribution will be essential, according to Avi Greengart, research director for consumer platforms and devices at GlobalData.

The only let down on the Moto Z2 Force seems to be the lowered battery power from its predecessor. In terms of price, the phone will cost us anywhere between Rs.38,000-40,000. The smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which also powers phones like - Samsung Galaxy S8, Xiaomi Mi 6, HTC U11, and the OnePlus 5. All phones feature a SD card for expandable storage however. Both sensors are of the 12MP nature with f/2.0 apertures, and you'll also find both phase detection and laser autofocus systems for better-stabilized shots. It doesn't come with an IP67 or 68 rating either, though it does feature a "water-repellant nano-coating". You'll still need a pair of Bluetooth buds or a USB-C dongle to listen to music.

The German minister added that such developments made it "extremely difficult" to proceed with German investment in Turkey . Erdogan's spokesman Ibrahim Kalin suggested Gabriel's remarks were meant to win votes at national elections in two months.


The only truly new addition to the Moto Z formula is the dual camera, and it's doing well so far. Most notably, the Z2 Force takes a pretty big cut in battery capacity this time around, now only sporting a 2,730 mAh cell.

First of all, the phone keeps the same modular approach as the Moto Z2 Play and last year's flagships, which means you can clip on extra modules to boost audio performance, add camera capabilities, extend battery life, or turn your smartphone into a projector.

Motorola's newest Moto Mod isn't another battery - thank goodness - nor a speaker.

In line with the rumours about the phone, the Moto Z2 Force will debut on all the major carriers in the USA including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
