The Moto Z2 Force Edition is the company's latest modular flagship.
We've contacted Motorola to find if it plans to bring the new 360-degree camera to Canada. Both variants support up to 2TB of storage.
Motorola is expected to launch Moto X4 alone with Moto Z2 Force.
As the Force part of the name suggests, this Z2 is all about being tough. Motorola also incorporated its ShatterShield technology, which means the smartphone is guaranteed never to crack or shatter.
Neither is the Force Edition water resistant.
For those concerned about durability now that the Moto Z2 Force is thinner than its predecessor, Motorola doesn't want you to worry. The Galaxy S8, by comparison, measures 8 mm - though it's still hard to call that phone thick.
Interestingly enough, Motorola has opted for a smaller battery capacity for the Z2 Force.
Rounding out the Moto Z2 Force is 64GB of built-in storage that's expandable via a microSD card, Android 7.1 Nougat, and USB Type-C. That's similar to what happened with the Moto Z2 Play against the original Z Play.
No smartphone is ideal, though. Well, this is one area that the Moto Z2 Play can most likely claim superiority.
The handset also features a glut of other high-end features, so it's not just about being one tough cookie. Transfer movies, photos and large files in no time with some of the fastest possible data speeds so you can spend more time watching what you love and less time waiting for it to download.
Motorola does sell an exterior "lens" that is user-replaceable if your Moto Z2 Force screen gets heavily scratched. For instance, simply say "show me my calendar" to see your calendar and relevant information on which - a more natural way to communicate vocally. That includes two 12-megapixel f/2.0 cameras with phase detection and laser autofocus. Together, the two lenses capture better images than a single lens camera setup. Then, those dual cameras allow for neat depth-of-field effects like blurring the background of subjects. The 360 camera adds to the growing selection, but it's hardly the killer app the company's been searching for to make modularity more than just a cool novelty. However, the 5MP front-facing camera is still a letdown in 2017.
You can buy the Moto Z2 Play in the United Kingdom right now, direct from Motorola. The screen won't shatter or crack from daily abuse, but it isn't an edge-to-edge screen like Samsung, LG or what we expect to see from Apple. The Z2 Force is treated with a nano-coating to keep things from getting fouled up in a light rain, but really - who among us hasn't gotten our phones right to the edge of "dangerously wet"?
