Moto Z2 Force was launched in India on Thursday, at an event in New Delhi. As with previous versions of the 'Force' smartphones from the Lenovo-owned Motorola brand, the Moto Z2 Force has a 'shatterproof' display, with Moto's ShatterShield tech. The flagship Moto is powered by the top-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, and has been launched as a Limited Edition offering in India, bundled with a battery pack Moto Mod.
The Moto Z2 Force price in India has been set at Rs. 34,999. At this price range, it competes with the OnePlus 5T, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, and the Nokia 8 in India. It will be available exclusively via Flipkart, apart from Moto Hub stores, from 11:59pm IST on Thursday itself. The smartphone will be bundled with a TurboPower Pack Moto Mod, regularly priced at Rs. 5,999.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Moto Z2 Force runs Android 8.0 Oreo sports a 5.5-inch QHD (1440x2560 pixels) POLED ShatterShield display. Motorola is providing a 4-year warranty against screen shattering and cracking with drops and falls. The smartphone also has water repellent nano-coating to protect from splashes. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 6GB of RAM, and the Adreno 540 GPU.
The smartphone bears a dual rear camera setup, with two 12-megapixel Sony IMX386 sensor coupled with 1 Bayer and 1 Clear lens of f/2.0 apertures - meant to provide depth of field effects.
