Moto Z2 Force launched in India with free TurboPower battery pack
The handset comes in at INR 34,999 (~$550) and, if you buy on Flipkart, you can take advantage of several launch offers. You could save up to INR 18,000 on the device when you trade-in another handset, you can get “Assured BuyBack" up to INR 13,500 (the exact price presumably depends on how soon you trade it in for a new model), and no Cost EMIs starting at INR 2,917 per month.
Terms and conditions will apply to all of these offers and we don't have all of the details right now. More information should be available on at Flipkart later today.
Motorola has announced that it is bringing the Moto Z2 Force to the Indian market. The Lenovo-owned OEM will launch its rugged 2017 flagship in the region at an event on February 15th.
The launch will be streamed live on YouTube over at the official Motorola India channel. Pricing and a retail date are likely to be revealed during the event, although thanks to an invite sent to Android Authority we do already know that each device will come bundled with the Moto TurboPower pack for free.
As a quick refresher, the Moto Z2 Force features an all-metal unibody build constructed from ultra-tough aluminium for extra durability.
It also offers Moto Mod support such as the aforementioned Moto TurboPower case which adds a further 3490 mAh of battery power to the existing 2,730 mAh cell.
The Moto Z2 Force sports a 5.5-inch P-OLED display with a protective “Shattershield” and a 1440 x 2560 resolution, a front-facing fingerprint sensor, and a 12 MP + 12 MP dual-camera on the rear (f/2.0 aperture).
The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 835 SoC and runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box. Motorola has been gradually rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update via certain carriers in the US, but a global rollout is expected in the coming months. For more on the Moto Z2 Force, be sure to check out our full review in the video below.
It’s worth noting that Motorola has recently come under fire from some Z2 Force users over a peeling issue with the Shattershield layer. Its decision to charge owners for necessary repairs hasn’t gone down well, however, it remains to be seen how widespread the problem is.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on the launch event and will bring you pricing and availability details as soon as we have them.
