Moto Z2 Force Edition and 360 Camera Moto Mod announced

Moto 360 camera a pricey new Moto Mod with 4K video and immersive 3D audio capture

Round the back, you'll find a dual-lens camera system on the Z2 Force. It's priced even higher on some carriers like AT&T ($810). Motorola does sell an exterior "lens" that is user-replaceable if your Moto Z2 Force screen gets heavily scratched. Since there's no slimmer phone this time, Moto apparently made a decision to split the difference.

However, there is a downside to the unique ShatterShield display. It's not edge-to-edge, but it's tough. Motorola also claims it is shatterproof and waterproof.

Finally, the Z2 Force comes with a "water protection" nanocoating which will protect against spills, but doesn't mean the phone is water-resistant, so dunking this thing is a no-go. Add to that the same screen-protecting ShatterShield technology we saw a year ago for the 5.5-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 pixel AMOLED screen, and it's a compelling package. The design is reinforced with 7,000 series aluminum so it appears to be a very durable package. That's the day the first Z2 Force variants will launch as well. Also, the camera uses both phase detect and laser autofocus, which should allow it to focus quickly in low-light settings. For starters, there are two 12-megapixel f/2.0 cameras on the rear, one of which shoots in monochrome, and the other shoots in color - similar to what Huawei offers in its flagship smartphones. What's more, preorder your Motorola Z2 Force Edition from Verizon and get it for $15 per month for 24 months on Verizon device payment ($756 retail; 0% APR) when activated on Verizon Unlimited. You can also expect better depth-of-field in your snaps; in other words, a sharp finish for your subject, while the background is pleasingly blurred to help them stand out. The front selfie camera is 5 megapixels.

Motorola is expanding its distribution strategy for the new Moto Z2 Force.

At the press event in New York City today, Motorola announced that its 360-degree camera attachment will be available starting on August 10 for the price of $299.99. It's almost identical to the Moto Z2 Play, which resembles the Moto G5 Plus. It includes all the standard game controller knobs are buttons and also serves as an extended battery for the Moto Z2.

The rest of the world gets 6GB RAM and 64GB of storage while China gets 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage. Keep in mind that there's microSD support, so the storage difference isn't a big issue. More RAM is always nice though.

Amazon Echo faces challenge to stay on top of smart speaker market
Alphabet ( GOOGL ) has the $129.99 Google Home and Alibaba ( BABA ) will release its $73 Tmall Genie smart speaker in August. That could suggest that Facebook's rumored device could be pretty expensive if it's including a 15-inch in-cell touchscreen.

The Moto Z2 Force will be available in Super Black, Fine Gold and Lunar Grey.

The phone ships with Bluetooth 4.2, but Motorola says it will be upgraded to Bluetooth 5.0 when the Android O update arrives. They'll also offer a free projector mod through September 9, or while supplies last.
