After “Moto X Pure Edition,” it’s “Droid Turbo 2” that will be known with a different name in the international markets. As per Motorola’s announcement, this newly launched phone in the U.S. will be called “Moto X Force” outside the country.
The phone is called Droid Turbo 2 by none other than Verizon. As Verizon is restricted to the United States, the handset will not be promoted with the same name outside U.S. The only difference between Droid Turbo 2 and Moto X Force will be the lack of the Droid logo. Other features and specs remain the same. Moto X Force will sport a shatterproof screen. It will also come with a four-year guarantee covering serious damage done to the screen. To be on the safer side, Moto X Force has introduced two touchscreen elements. So if the top layer of your screen gets scratched, you can replace it yourself. Motorola has released a video showing how strong Moto X Force’s screen is on the official Motorola Blog.
This 5.4-inch device is a customizable phone from Motorola. With the help of Moto Maker, you can design the skin of your phone to make sure you have a unique design. This time, ballistic nylon and leather options have also been added. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, Moto X Force is packed with 3,760 mAh battery. It also offers a 21-megapixel front and 5-megapixel selfie camera. Moto’s latest smartphone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, not Android M.
Droid Turbo 2 starts at $624 off contract in the United States. In the UK, the phone will be launched somewhere in mid-November. Where the 32GB model will be charged at £499, the 64 GB will cost customers £534.
