Moto Z2 Force Edition and 360 Camera Moto Mod announced

Moto Z2 Force Edition All the official images

This enables you to connect one of Motorola's many Moto Mods to the phone's backside, like the the Moto Insta-Share Projector, Hasselblad True Zoom camera grip, JBL SoundBoost speaker, and extended battery packs. The Z2 Force features a water-protective coating but doesn't offer full IP67 or IP68 ingress protection. Motorola does sell an exterior "lens" that is user-replaceable if your Moto Z2 Force screen gets heavily scratched.

For a limited time, you can preorder your Moto Z Force Edition in Super Black and Fine Gold for $15 a month for 24 months on Verizon device payment when you choose Verizon unlimited ($756 retail; 0% APR).

The Moto Z2 Force looks almost identical to last years model, with the same design and 5.5-inch screen.

Motorola went with one-button navigation on the Z2 Force, something that Huawei has dabbled with in its P10 handsets. With that said, the phone will be sold via the major carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and US Cellular are expected to offer various versions.

A highlight of this new phone is the dual cameras on the back. You can use these dual rear cameras together to capture higher-quality photos and add blurry backgrounds to your images. Allowing the phone to capture more color and light, whites and shadows with every photo you take. But, we will see. Now, Lenovo's subsidiary firm is set to launch another Z2 product, the Lenovo Moto Z2 Force, with two new exciting features.

Now for the bad news, this phone is pretty expensive. Motorola does state that the battery on the new Moto Z2 Force will be able to last long enough though, due to the software improvements year-over-year and aspects like "Turbo Charging" support. With the modular add-ons, the phone looks like "one of the most differentiated flagships out there", but given the modest sales of the original, the Z2 "would need to grow significantly from there to be a meaningful player in the market", he says.

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq: VZ), headquartered in New York City, has a diverse workforce of 161,000 and generated almost $126 billion in 2016 revenues. In terms of design, the phone will have a slim metal shell body and the 3.5mm headphone port will be removed for good.

All other Moto Mods are coming soon.

Other features of the Moto Z2 Force Edition include a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a microSD slot for expanding on the built-in storage.
