Motorola announces the Moto Z2 Force Edition and 360 Camera Moto Mod

At an event in New York City, Motorola has officially announced the Z2 Force Edition as well as a new 360-degree camera mod, which was previously announced at a press event in Ghana.

The Z2 Force has a 5.5-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display which is also guaranteed not to crack or shatter. The device has a 7000 series aluminium unibody and has a water-repellent coating. Just below the display is the fingerprint sensor which is the same one found on the Z2 Play and the G5 from earlier this year. You’ll also be able to use all existing and future Moto Mods with the Z2 Force.

The Z2 Force is being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM. It also has the Adreno 540 GPU. The phone with come with 64GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot.

The battery is 2,730 mAh, compared to the original Z Force’s 3,500 mAh battery. Motorola says the battery will last all-day but the Z2 Force does come with TurboPower charging, which can get you up to 8 hours of battery life in as little as 15 minutes.

The device still has a USB Type-C port and no headphone jack but a 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter is included.

The device has a dual-camera setup, both are 12-megapixels but one is monochrome and other is colour. You’ll be able to take high-quality photos and even ones with the Bokeh effect. The Z2 Force’s cameras can take video up to 4K at 30 fps, 1080p at 30fps, 720p at up to 120fps. The front-facing camera is 5-megapixels.

The Z2 Force will be running Android 7.1.1 with Motorola’s apps pre-installed. The phone will be available on all major US carriers starting August 10th for around $799 USD.

Now onto the new 360 Camera Moto Mod, it allows Moto Z owners to turn their phone into a 360-degree camera, all you have to do is attach it to the back of your phone. The new 360 Camera Moto Mod is able to record 360-degree 4K video with 3D audio.

The cameras on the mod have a 150-degree ultra-wide angle and to start shooting with the new Mod, you’ll just be using your phone’s standard camera app, no separate app required. The 360 Camera Moto Mod will be available on August 10th in the US for $299 USD.

We’ve reached out to Motorola Canada to see if one or both of the devices will be making their way to Canada. We’ll update this post when we hear back.
