However, the company did include certain tweaks, for instance, the camera has received a major bump along with the fact that the device comes with a new wireless charging Mod option as well. Reports that emerged online at that time started emphasizing how important Moto Z2 Force is for the Moto Z line-up of smartphones.
Evan Blass at VentureBeat was able to obtain marketing materials, which have revealed the Z2 Force's specifications.
In regards to the Moto Z2 Force, the device is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC equipped w with Adreno 540 GPU and 6GB of RAM.
Elsewhere, the 21 MP camera found on the original Z Force makes way for the Z2 Force's dual 12 MP sensors.
As you can see from the amount of RAM and storage, the United States model of the Z2 Force seems somewhat toned down when compared to what other markets will receive.
From what we've already deciphered, the Moto Z2 Force is much like last year's Z Force, with slim body, support for Moto Mods, no 3.5mm headphone jack, fingerprint reader on its front bottom chin, but with the addition of dual rear-facing cameras. Motorola's pursuit of thinness by sacrificing battery is a strategy that it also implemented with the Moto Z2 Play, but it is also a strategy that still leaves us scratching our heads. The Z2 Force won't be IP water resistant, but does come with a water-repellent nano coating.
Nevertheless, one report saw Moto sending out invites for an event slated for July 25, as the two devices are largely expected to be unveiled.
The Moto Z2 Force will come pre-loaded with Android 7.1.1, but will be upgradable to Android O shortly after.
