Moto Z2 Force announced

What makes the Moto Z2 Force so interesting is a 5.5-inch Quad HD POLED display with ShatterShield, which is a layer of shatter resistant coating on top. It makes the display more prone to scratches but it is highly unlikely you ever damage the display by dropping your phone. The Z2 is ridiculously thin and built from reinforced 7000 series aluminum for added rigidity.

On the back of the phone is a new dual camera system witout optical image stabilisation, consisting of two 12 megapixel f2.0 cameras. One captures full color and the other is monochrome. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset brings signal processing to the table that will combine both sensors for color photos with a shallow depth of field. You can also shoot monochrome images with the second sensor only.

The Z2 Force is a flagship smartphone, given its chipset and cameras, and comes with gigabit LTE, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11ac with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.2 with 5.0 support coming with Android O update. It has water repellant nano coating, a USB-C port for data and audio, but no headphone jack. Battery capacity is 2730mAh and thus 10% less than the Z2 Play. It should charge reasonably fast with its 15 W charger. The battery capacity and wireless charging can be upgraded via Moto Mods.

Pricing and availability hasn't been announced for Europe. While the US version comes with 4 GB of RAM, the EU version is rumored to have 6 GB. Internal storage of 64 GB can be expanded via MicroSD.
