Moto X Force gets official as an unlocked version of the Droid Turbo 2 without annoying Verizon logos
The first generation Moto X had only one member. This year, however, Motorola decided to add a few more models to the series. Three months ago the company announced the Moto X Style and Moto X Play and it appeared that it was not quite done with launching phones just yet, since early last month a certain Moto X Force popped up in a number of rumors. Today the phone went official as an unlocked version of the Droid Turbo 2 and without annoying Verizon logos.
Moto X Force is an unlocked GSM variant of the Verizon CDMA based Droid Turbo 2
Save for the logos and Verizon-specific apps, the Moto X Force is exactly the same as the Droid Turbo 2. It means that the phone has virtually indestructible screen made with as many as five layers using a technology called ShatterShield. The screen measures 5.4 inches diagonally and offers QHD (2560×1440) resolution. Powering the phone is the familiar octa-core 2GHz Snapdragon 810 processor with and Adreno 430 to deal with graphics and 3GB of RAM to take care of flawless multitasking. Like the Droid Turbo 2, the Moto X Force will be available in two storage options – 32GB and 64GB, both expandable up to 2TB via microSD slot.
The latest addition to the Moto X series is also equipped with a massive 21-megapixel main camera with a f/2.0 aperture, phase-detect autofocus, dual-LED flash and 4K video capture. For selfie purposes users will get a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture, wide-angle lens and flash for great quality photos taken in low-light conditions.
The Moto X Force also boasts a huge 3,760 mAh battery which is expected to last up to 48 hours on a single charge. Moreover, the battery supports Qi and Powermat wireless charging as well as TurboPower which can charge the phone with up to 13 hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging. The device will be launched with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box but is expected to receive 6.0 Marshmallow update at some point in the future.
The Moto X Force will go on sale in the UK in mid-November starting at £499 (or $763) for 32GB version and £534 (that is $817) for 64GB model. Users also will be able to grab the device through Carphone Warehouse, for £29.99 ($46) upfront and £32.00 ($49) per month on a two-year contract from Vodafone.
