Motorola is will debut a few devices on July 25, including the highly anticipated Moto Z2 Force. New details have emerged for the Motorola flagship Z2 device, and it isn’t as top-notch as we’d hoped. While the Z2 Force does receive spec bumps, it is very modest, especially for U.S. customers.
Evan Blass at VentureBeat was able to obtain marketing materials, which have revealed the Z2 Force’s specifications. Among those, the device will come with the Snapdragon 835 processor and dual 12 megapixel cameras. Last year’s Moto Z Force featured a 21 megapixel camera, so Motorola will join the dual camera trend. The front of the device will retain the same 5 megapixel camera as last year’s model. The main attraction of the Z2 Force is the 5.5 inch AMOLED QHD Shattershield display, which makes a return.
Storage is where things are looking down for the U.S. The United States models will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. Other regions will double the internal storage and feature 6GB of RAM. The device is also nearly a millimeter thinner, meaning the battery has shrunken. The battery will be 2,730mAh versus 3,500mAh from last year. The Z2 Force won’t be IP water resistant, but does come with a water-repellent nano coating.
The Moto Z2 Force will come pre-loaded with Android 7.1.1, but will be upgradable to Android O shortly after. As for colors, it will have Super Black or Fine Gold. The T-Mobile variant will have an exclusive Lunar Grey color. Availability for the device is unknown, but we should know more after July 25.
