Moto X4 (XT1789) to come with Snapdragon 660, reveals Geekbench

As reported earlier, unlike last year, this year Moto Z2 Force won't be a Verizon exclusive, instead will be available through all carriers in the USA this time.

Motorola has unveiled its new flagship smartphone - the Moto Z2 Force Edition - that boasts of a shatterproof display. The newly announced Moto Z2 Force is the successor to last year's Moto Z Force, but this time around, there are a few key changes. Unfortunately, there's no headphone jack, a page taken from Apple's book and the earlier Moto Z smartphone. The device is introduced in Super Black, Fine Gold, and Lunar Grey colour options, which will be available for the major carriers in the US. No more separation between a "normal" Moto Z and an "indestructible" Moto Z Force, it's now just this one phone. The toughened smartphone sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display which won't easily crack or break when dropped. It also runs on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system. This is to make the phone a ridiculous 6mm thick, but at this size the handset is actually a little uncomfortable to hold.

The Moto Z2 Force is built using 7000 series aluminium, and thanks to its 6.1-mm design also does not get 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port also does the job of 3.5mm jack and adapter for the same is provided. 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. You'll be living the #donglelife when it comes to wired audio, wherever you buy the Moto Z2 Force - which isn't great, but at least the experience is consistent throughout the world. The Moto Z2 Force Edition was unveiled at the launch event held in NY. Plus, the phone can be enhanced further with Moto Mods.

The Moto Z2 Force is priced at $799 (roughly Rs 51,500) in the United States and will go on sale from August 10. The new Mod basically adds a 360-degree-camera to your phone which can shoot 150 degree "ultrawide-angle' photos and can record content in 4K". The back panel features pogo pin connectors for the Moto Mods. It will roll out in Mexico, Brazil, various European countries, the Middle East, and Africa later this summer. The device is available starting from 25 July with 24-month finance agreements on both devices.
