Motorola introduced a new smartphone and a camera to it

Lenovo brand Motorola has launched its flagship smartphone, the Moto Z2 Force. It will be available in two RAM variants - 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage and 6GB RAM/ 128GB inbuilt storage - while some regions will receive a dual-SIM model. The smartphone doesn't have a 3.5-mm audio-jack, instead, it is routed through USB port which is also used for charging and data transferring. The phone measures in at just 6.1mm thick.

Connectivity options are - Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, A-GPS, Moto Mods, and Type-C USB.

Speaking about its display, the Moto Z2 Force offers a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. Similar to Apple's portrait mode, the dual-lends setup has allowed Moto to implement a depth-of-field effect on the Moto Z2 Force. It uses the same Moto Mod system that Motorola has released so this means you can connect it to any of the Moto Z modular smartphones. The 2,730 mAh battery comes paired with 15W TurboPower charger. It now has a dual-lens camera setup with dual 12MP sensors with an f/2.0 aperture. Apart from that, users will also be able to capture 150-degree wide-angle still images with the camera. For the front, there will be a 16-megapixel selfie camera. Unfortunately, there's no headphone jack, a page taken from Apple's book and the earlier Moto Z smartphone.

With the Moto Z2 Force, Motorola has introduced one more Moto Mod - the 360-degree Camera Mod.

The device is already up for pre-order through all mobile carriers in US such as Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular and can also be purchased from Motorola directly.

This also means that nearly all the features of the 360 Camera Moto Mod will work on any of the compatible Moto Z phones. According to a recent report, the dual rear cameras will come with a combination of 12-megapixel and 8-megapixel sensors.

The unlocked version of the device will retail at $799.

The smartphone has been announced for USA only for now and will be introduced in India shortly. The Moto Z2 Force will go on sale in Mexico, Brazil, Europe, Middle East, and Africa from "later this summer", the company says. The date of launch of Moto Z2 Force Edition for the Indian market has not been announced as of now.
