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

Like its predecessor, the new Motorola handset will have a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, the same display technology other leading smartphone manufacturers use, which offers more dynamic colors compared to LED screens.

On the back of the phone is a new dual camera system, consisting of two 12 megapixel f2.0 cameras.

Why this matters: After Google killed Project Ara and LG abandoned its ill-conceived G5 "Friends" concept, it seemed like the modular phone dream was all but dead. Perhaps, offering two similar models at once worked against it past year, but that's pure speculation. The pricing for the phone starts at $720. Packing the octa-core Snapdragon 835 clocked at 2.35 gHz, the device comes with 64 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM, with the ability accept up to 2 TB's in micro-sd storage. The storage is not expandable though.

A 5-megapixel selfie camera. Motorola's also throwing a full-blown launch party for the Z2 Force later today, but in the mean time we figured we'd break you off with a little preview of the two products launched today. Instead, the company has a water-repellant coating that might save it from a splash, but that's about it. And if you were hoping Moto would bring back the headphone jack with the Z Force sequel, you're out of luck.

Straight form the box the Z2 Force will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Most notably, the Z2 Force takes a pretty big cut in battery capacity this time around, now only sporting a 2,730 mAh cell. Rather, the Moto Z2 Play and Force are merely splash resistant, so you'll want to avoid dunking them in a body of liquid.

Moto Z2 Force has been one of the most sough smartphone since last month when Moto Z2 Play was launched kicked off the Z2 series.

The new handset is super thin, can connect to mobile networks at up to gigabit-per-second speeds, and is compatible with Motorola's innovative line of snap-on batteries, cameras, and other modular add-ons.

Instead of having only one major carrier stock the phone, like a year ago, Motorola said all four of the largest carriers-Verizon, AT&T (t), T-Mobile, and Sprint-will sell the phone directly in their stores.

In terms of U.S. availability, it's certainly nice to hear AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint shall join Verizon for a truly nationwide launch on August 10, preceded by July 26 pre-orders, but on the not so bright side of things, the 6GB RAM variant is exclusive to foreign territories.
