They can even add blur effects to the background or foreground of images. The Android phone has a 5.5-inch AMOLED screen, an aluminum body, and dual camera lens on the back, like the iPhone 7. There is some level of fast charging, though.
I'm still not in love with the compromise Motorola made with the battery, but a marketing exec offered a little insight into how the decision was made. That amounts to 6.1 millimeters. Additional aspects worth noting, include the option to expand the storage when needed via microSD (up to 2TB), a rear-positioned fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C connectivity, and Android 7.1 (Nougat) pre-installed. While the company sold "millions" of that first phone, it's only moved between one and two of the swappable backs for every handset.
It's not officially water-resistant, but Motorola says it'll have a level of "water protection" that lets it survive in light rain and the like. That's a high price to pay for a phone that looks just like last years model, lost features like a headphone jack, and lowered the battery size.
When it comes to specs, it's quite different from the regular Moto Z2.
The Mod uses the same magnetic pins to communicate with the phone, and it uses the default camera application on any of the Moto Z devices.
The Moto Z2 Force Edition also run on gigabit LTE networks; users will be able to respond to messages from the lock screen. The only plausible explanation behind this is to get you to buy the Moto Mod battery pack according to Evan Blass. The Z2 was accompanied by the unveiling of two more Moto Mods, as well: the 360 Camera Mod which launched today, and the Moto Gamepad, which is said to launch later this summer. For starters, there's a Snapdragon 835 chip, joining the Galaxy S8, HTC U11, OnePlus 5, and Sony Xperia XZ Premium as the only phones to feature the top-of-the-line processor. On Verizon, for instance, it's available outright for $756.
We have seen tons of images ahead of the official launch and by now we should all be familiar with the Moto Z2 Force. Moving the phone between carriers can be hard, because each model supports different spectrum bands: the AT&T/T-Mobile one won't work on Sprint or Verizon, the Verizon one won't work well with T-Mobile or Sprint, and the Sprint one will work just okay on all four carriers, but not as well as the optimized units. It's a dreary day here, so colors across the city feel more muted than usual, and the Z2 Force has been doing a fine job accurately rendering these scenes. None of the changes here feel particularly groundbreaking, but stay tuned for our full review to see if the Z2 Force forces me to rethink that notion.
