The Moto Z2 Force comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440p) Super AMOLED ShatterShield display. Under the hood runs a Snapdragon 835 octa-core chipset clocked at 2.35GHz coupled with an Adreno 540 GPU. The US edition of the smartphone was launched with 64GB internal storage with 4GB RAM, whereas many of the Asian regions are expected to get the 128GB internal storage variant with 6GB RAM. The smartphone is not water-resistant but comes with a water repellent nano-coating to keep it safe from accidental splashes. The smartphone also features a fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication, and it is embedded inside the home button, just below the display.
On the camera front, both the rear camera sensors come with a 12-megapixel resolution – one is a monochrome (black and white) sensor, and the other is RGB (color) sensor. Both work together to capture photos with better details, and minimize noise in low-light conditions. The front camera is a 5-megapixel snapper and comes with an LED flash. The aperture is ƒ/2.2 and it is a wide-angle lens.
On the connectivity front, the smartphone comes with Moto Mods connectivity, USB-C port for headphones, charging and data transfer (adapter included), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 4G VoLTE, and dual-SIM features in specific regions. The device comes with a 2,730mAh battery with Turbo Charge which Motorola claims can help the device stay charged for a full day. The smartphone comes with Android Nougat out-of-the-box with a promised Android O upgrade once announced. The smartphone was launched at $799.99 (approximately Rs 51,536) in the US.
