Just hours after the announcement of Verizon exclusive Droid Turbo 2, Motorola launched the global variant of the device dubbed a Moto X Force.

The company posted 56-second video with just a single press statement to formally confirm that the new Moto X Force will be released next month.

In the teaser clip, Motorola boss Rick Osterloh demonstrates Moto X Force's display capability by comparing them with Apple iPhone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S6. Phones fo rival brands fail to absorb the impact on the floor and their screens cracked in the first trial itself.

However, Motorola Moto X Force doesn't even get scratched despite display taking the hit directly on the concrete slab thanks to company's proprietary 'Moto ShatterShield' display technology, which is said to be the most durable display protective gear in the smartphone industry.

It apparently consists of five layers: Aluminium chassis to form the rigid core, flexible AMOLED screen, and two layered touchscreen panels, interior lens to provide clear visibility of contents and exterior lens to provide additional protection, so that the phone's display is capable to absorb shock from the impact and is guaranteed not to shatter, says the company.

On the back side (of base model), it boasts ballistic nylon (metalised glass fiber) that offers a distinctive design while providing ultimate durability. And also, underneath this coating, Moto X Force features Kevlar, a material that is known to be five times stronger than steel.

Under the hood, it houses powerful Snapdragon 810 series Octa-core in addition to company's proprietary Mobile computing system comprising natural language processor, contextual computing processor, 550 MHz Adreno 430 graphics engine backed by 3GB RAM and 32GB/64GB inbuilt memory.

It also houses a high capacity 3760 mAh battery that can keep the phone running for close to 48 hours of talktime. The phone also features Turbo Power technology, wherein the phone can get 13 hours of power for just 15 minutes of charging.

Motorola Moto X Force release and price details:

The company has confirmed that Moto X Forcewill hit stores in Latin America, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and APAC (Asia-Pacific) regions in November.

The new Moto X Force -32GB & 64GB- cost £449 ($764/€696/Rs. 49,850) and £534 ($818/€745/Rs.53,350) respectively in the UK.

Will Motorola Moto X Force in India?

Though there is no official word from Motorola, we still believe that the company will launch Moto X Force in India, probably little later in the year.

Motorola had released its predecessor Moto Turbo in India in March this year, so the company might wait few more months to roll-out Moto X Force in the country.

Earlier this month, the company released Moto X Style in India through official e-commerce partner Flipkart.
