Lenovo-owned Motorola launched the new Android flagship Moto Z2 Force in India on February 15.
The new Moto Z2 Force flaunts a very slim profile similar to its predecessor and also a visually appealing high-grade metallic ( 7000 series aluminum) body. On the front, it sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560x1440p) resolution POLED screen having Motorola's proprietary ShatterShield protection technology.
For those unaware, it is made up of five layers — an aluminum chassis to form the rigid core, a flexible AMOLED screen, two layered touchscreen panels, an interior lens to provide clear visibility of contents, and an exterior lens to provide additional protection, so that the phone's display is able to absorb shock from the impact and is guaranteed not to shatter.
Motorola has incorporated not one but two 12MP cameras with Sony IMX 386 sensors- 1 Bayer + 1 Clear lens, a first in the Moto series. It also boasts depth detection and depth effect features, Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL), Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), Laser Auto Focus, Closed loop actuator, Color Correlated Temperature (CCT) dual LED flash, Professional mode.
It is also capable of capturing 4K video at 30 fps (frames per second). On the front, it houses a 5MP camera with 85-degree wide-angle lens and flash support.
