Taiwan market: Motorola launches Moto Z2 Play

T-Mobile Moto Z2 Force BOGO offer is live already

Before the launch, Motorola did hint at a shatter-proof display for the Z2 Force. Despite the notable upgrades over its predecessor, however, the Moto Z2 Force retains one aspect of the Moto Z Force that may be a deal breaker for some: the lack of a headphone jack.

Moto sinks rumors of a 3.5mm headphone jack in the global model. The smartphone will be available in three colour variants - Lunar Grey, Fine Gold and Super Black starting from August 10. The super-slim profile also restricted the company to a relatively undersized 2730mAh battery, and a water-repellent nano-coating has been added.

The Moto X4 is rumored to sport a 5.2-inch Full HD display and 12MP rear + 16MP front cameras. What's more, unlike the Galaxy S8, it's not shockproof or waterproof - although Motorola says that the device is "water resistant", so it should withstand a drop in the toilet.

Proving the rumors true, it does come with a dual rear camera set up with two 12 MP sensors coupled with f/2.0 aperture. This is to make the phone a ridiculous 6mm thick, but at this size the handset is actually a little uncomfortable to hold.

Other notable features on the device are connectivity options that include support for dual SIM, NFC, dual band Wi-Fi 802.11ac with MIMO, Bluetooth 4.2, and USB Type-C. Another highlight of the Moto Z2 Force is the dual cameras it comes with.

Currently, the device is available in United States and will go on sale on August 10. The phone comes out in two variants, one featuring 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of storage, another variant offers better specifications: 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage space.

Similar to how the Moto Z2 Play looked like a cross between last year's Moto Z Play and Moto Z, the Moto Z2 Force also looks like a lovechild between the Moto Z and Moto Z Force.

Motorola has also announced a new Moto 360 Camera Moto Mod which can capture 4K 360-degree video alongside 3D audio. The front camera has an LED flash as well.

Simply snap the new 360 Camera Moto Mod on your Moto Z and turn it into a 360 degree camera that captures everything. It also features the functionality of the Moto Mods feature.

In the single-core test, the alleged Moto X4 got 824 points while in the multi-core testing the device has acquired 3886 points.
