New Moto Z Force Has A Shatterproof Screen
Motorola is now back with its second shatter-proof smartphone, the Moto Z Force. The phone is an exclusive to Verizon, and unlike its new sibling, the Moto Z, it is not slated to be made available outside of the US or on another carrier. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but the Moto Z Force is expected to be released sometime mid-summer.
The Moto Z Force isn’t the world’s thinnest phone, but it is a still-reasonable 155.9 x 75.8 x 6.99mm and 163g. It just feels thick after handling the Moto X, that does happen to be the world’s thinnest phone. The Force is sleek and stylish with a sturdy metal and straight back design. The large camera lens, however, does stick out quite a bit. It has a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a 2,560×1440-pixel resolution (535 ppi).
Moto Z Force feature a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC, with four custom Kryo CPU cores running up to the 2.15GHz and an Adreno 530 GPU, paired with 4 gigabyte of LPDDR4 RAM—the same formula most current generation flagship phones are using. It offer two storage options based on UFS 2.0 NAND, 32 gigabyte and 64 gigabyte, and support storage expansion with a microSD card.
The Force is essentially a souped-up version of the Z, a new flagship smartphone announced by Lenovo at its Tech World event. It shares the same Quad HD display, speedy processor and also promise of snap-on magnetic accessories, but it adds an improved 21-megapixel rear camera, a larger battery along with faster charging and of course that shatterproof screen. The Force also supports those cool Moto Mods, which connect to the back of the phone to add extra functionality and customization.
