Motorola's newest Moto Mod is a 360-degree camera

Motorola's newest Moto Mod is a 360-degree camera

New on the modding scene is a 360-degree camera that will set you back US$300 - it clips on to the top of your phone to capture the whole of the scene around you.

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. Following in the footsteps of last year's model, its durability mainly comes by way of the inclusion of a ShatterShield display. On the other hand, the Moto Z2 Force will have a slight difference on its battery. The pricing for the phone starts at $720. Like other leading smartphones available on the market, this Motorola phone is powered by a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The storage is not expandable though. Motorola has guaranteed the display and camera lens against shattering and cracking for up to four years from the original date of purchase, although is also keen to point out that the Moto Z2 Force is "not shockproof or created to withstand all damage from dropping". It doesn't come with an IP67 or 68 rating either, though it does feature a "water-repellant nano-coating".

I'm nearly completely over it at this point, but the Z2 Force doesn't have a headphone jack. You'll still need a pair of Bluetooth buds or a USB-C dongle to listen to music.

For a change, Army men thrash cops
The naka party of P/S Gund Ganderbal headed by ASI Gh Rasool No.26/T stopped the said vehicles as per the directions. Ganderbal: Six policemen were injured in a scuffle with army personnel in Jammu and Kashmir's Ganderbal district.

Another notable feature of the Moto Z2 Force Edition is its dual rear camera setup. After months of leaks and teases, Motorola has officially pulled the wraps off its flagship Moto Z2 Force. Motorola offers the TurboPower Pack, which straps a 3,490 mAh battery to the back of your Moto Z2 Force. It'll look awfully familiar if you've spent any time with the Moto Z2 Play as well, but you probably could've guessed that based on their names. The mod works with all Moto Z devices, including the new Z2 Force (but only after a software update that should be available when the 360 Camera Mod begins shipping or becomes available for purchase on 10 August).

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

In terms of United States 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.
