The Motorola Moto X Force (sold as the Droid Turbo 2 in the US), which is claimed to be the first smartphone in the world to come with a shatterproof display, will be launched in India on February 1 - today. The announcement was made by the company in a tweet yesterday.
The event is set for 3PM (IST) today. The launch comes nearly a couple of weeks after Motorola India started teasing the phone on Twitter. There is currently no official information on its India price though.
DIMENSIONS AND WEIGHT:
It measures 3.07 by 5.90 inches (78 by 149.8 mm) and is 0.36 inches (9.2 mm) thick at its thickest point. A weight of 6 ounces (169 grams) ensures that you'll be feeling the handset resting in your pocket.
It is highly customizable thanks to the Moto Maker treatment being available. You may pick between a variety of colors, materials, and finishes.
A 5.4-inch AMOLED display with Quad HD resolution which sports 1440 by 2560 pixels produce a density of 540 ppi for crisp and clear images. But specs aren't what make this screen special. It is protected by Motorola's ShatterShield technology, which consists of five layers that ensure the durability of the display.
At its core lies a 2.0GHz Snapdragon 810 SoC (MSM8994) paired with 3GB of RAM and 32 or 64 gigs of storage for your apps and files, plus a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
Out of the box, it will run Android 5.1. The experience will have a stock Android feel as the software will be only slightly customized, in typical Motorola fashion
The Moto X Force is equipped with a 21MP snapper with a dual-tone LED flash and a Sony IMX230 sensor. The front selfie cam is 5MP with a wide-angle lens, and a LED flash provides illumination in low-light situations.
The phone comes with a 3760 mAh built-in battery that should easily last through a couple of days of regular use. And it recharges fast, too! The TurboPower charger that's included pumps power back to the battery at rapid rates – a 15-minute recharge should be enough to get you 13 extra hours of use.
The price-tag is the only thing that may make you reluctant to go for it. It is rumored to be priced at nearly INR 40,000 (compared to the US price).
