You might have heard about the Droid Turbo 2, one of Motorola’s latest smartphones (but ment only for the US market) that comes with an interesting feature called Moto Shattershield. Basically, this technology protects Droid Turbo 2’s glass from shattering/cracking when hitting the concrete (whatever material) floor, and most importantly, its not a gimmicky feature. Motorola even brags about it in a new commercial starring Rick Osterloh, the President of Motorola himself. You can check that below.
Motorola decided that this Droid Turbo 2 with shatterproof screen should be available world-wide, so they announced the Moto X Force the other day. Basically, Latin America, EMEA (Europe included), Asia and other markets will get the same Droid Turbo 2 but rebranded as Moto X Force, meaning it will lose the “Droid” and Verizon logo. Some key markets will also get access to the online customization tool Motorola calls Moto Maker (the UK, Germany, Japan, etc).
Moto X Force feature a 5.4-inch AMOLED display with Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440 px) screen resolution and protected by the Moto Shattershield technology I was telling you about above, it packs a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810, 3GB of RAM, 32/64GB of built-in storage (optional as always), a 3,760 mAh battery with support for PMA and Qi wireless charging (good news here), which will offer up to 48 hours of use. There is also a 21MP main camera on the back and a 5MP front facing camera. No dual speakers at the front, but it is still loud enough according to Motorola.
The Moto X Force will launch unlocked (carrier-free) in the United Kingdom in mid-November for £499 (the 32GB model) and £535 (the 64GB model), but one will have the option to purchase it through carrier deals as well. We will tell you more on this topic as soon as Motorola UK introduces the handset and carrier information is available to us.
So, how does a shatterproof smartphone sound to you? Will you buy it? Take a look at the videos below.
