Lenovo brand Moto on Tuesday launched its flagship smartphone, the Moto Z2 Force (aka Moto Z2 Force Edition). Like the previous ‘Force’ smartphone in the Moto Z series, the Moto Z2 Force sports a ShatterShield display, guaranteed not to crack or shatter, as well as a svelte profile of just 6.1mm. The smartphone as expected also bears dual rear cameras, and carries forward the Moto Z series’ support for Moto Mod accessories. Other highlights of the smartphone include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, up to 6GB of RAM, and Gigabit LTE connectivity. Alongside the Moto Z2 Force, the company also revealed pricing and availability for the recently unveiled Moto 360 Camera Moto Mod.
The Moto Z2 Force is built out of 7000 series aluminium, and its 6.1-mm thick unibody design also forgoes the 3.5mm headphone jack to use a USB Type-C port instead – a 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter is included in the box. The super-slim profile also restricted the company to a relatively undersized 2730mAh battery, and a water-repellent nano-coating has been added. The back panel features pogo pin connectors for the Moto Mods.
The company has also included compatibility for Google’s Daydream VR platform. The Moto Z2 Force bears a fingerprint scanner on the Home Button, which also features the new one-button navigation features we first saw introduced in the Moto G5 series. It will be available in two RAM variants – 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage and 6GB RAM/ 128GB inbuilt storage – while some regions will receive a dual-SIM model.
Moto Z2 Force price
The smartphone will go on sale across various carriers in the US from August 10, with pre-orders now open.

It will be available in Fine Gold, Lunar Grey (for T-Mobile only), and Super Black colour variants. The smartphone will go on sale across various carriers in the US from August 10, with pre-orders now open. The smartphone will go on sale in Mexico, Brazil, Europe, Middle East, and Africa from later this summer, the company says.
