Moto X Force With 5.4-Inch 'Shatterproof' QHD Display Launched
Motorola on Thursday launched the Moto X Force, the international variant of the recently unveiled Motorola Droid Turbo 2 for Verizon Wireless. Motorola says the smartphone would be arriving in the UK, as well as the Latin America, EMEA, and APAC regions in November.

The Motorola Moto X Force is identical to its Verizon Wireless counterpart, except for network support. The version listed on the company's UK site features support for India's 4G LTE bands as well. The smartphone will be eligible for the company's Moto Maker customisation program where applicable.

Making the announcement on its UK blog, the company has detailed a GBP 499 (roughly Rs. 49,900) price tag for the 32GB variant, and a GBP 534 (roughly Rs. 53,400) price tag for the 64GB variant.

The Moto X Force comes with a 5.4-inch QHD (1440x2560) display. The company claims that the 'ShatterShield' display - which is made of an aluminium rigid core, flexible Amoled screen, and dual-layer touchscreen panels (redundancy in case one goes bad) - wouldn't break into pieces even when dropped on a slab of concrete. The smartphone also comes with water-repellent nano-coating.

As mentioned above, it comes in 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage options, with both variants bearing a microSD card slot (up to 2TB). There's a 3760mAh battery onboard, which in addition to a claimed battery life of 2-days with "mixed use", also supports Quick Charging.

On the photography front, the handset comes with a 21-megapixel rear-camera with an f/2.0 aperture and dual-LED flash and Phase Detect Autofocus, apart from a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter with flash and an f/2.0 aperature.

In terms of software, the new Motorola smartphone runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and not Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The single-SIM capable Moto X Force supports 4G LTE (Cat. 4), 3G, CDMa, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and other standard connectivity options.
