Motorola has officially unveiled the Moto X Force, renamed Motorola Droid Turbo 2, in regions outside United States. Renaming of this device is not the oddest part about this launch, because this launch has become the trending #ShortestPressAnnouncementEver. Motorola Droid Turbo 2, announced earlier this week, was defiantly a worthy successor to its name. There’s a lot about this phone, that intrigues the inner geek in me, and the most note worthy feature is “Shatterproof Display”.
Motorola is bringing Moto X Force to international markets. And instead of the usual press release, it’s announcing it with a one-minute video starring Motorola President Rick Osterloh, dropping the iPhone 6S, the Galaxy S6, and the Moto X Force.
Though this “Shatterproof Display” is capable of ruling sales itself, the Moto X Force packs some beefy specs inside it. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core SoC clocked at 2GHz and paired with 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM. As mentioned above, it comes in 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage options, with both variants bearing a microSD card slot (up to 2TB). There’s a 3760mAh battery onboard, which in addition to a claimed battery life of 2-days, also supports Quick Charging. The teased “Shatterproof Display” measures 5.4 inch diagonally has 1440×2560 pixels, giving it a QHD resolution. On the photography front, the handset comes with a 21-megapixel rear-camera with an f/2.0 aperture and dual-LED flash and Phase Detect Auto-focus, apart from a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter with flash and an f/2.0 aperture.
Announced with Moto Maker in United Sates, has no such commitments for its international launch. Though the announcement video was interesting, it tells us nothing about the release date, price and availability. Priced at $624 (32GB variant) and $720 (64GB variant), Moto X Force (Motorola Droid Turbo 2 in United States) is expected to be the first one getting the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
