Just a few weeks ago we began hearing rumors about a new smartphone from Motorola called the Moto X Force (codenamed Bounce). Featuring a 5.43-inch Quad HD “shatterproof” display, the unannounced Motorola smartphone sounds like quite the flagship so far. But how much cash might one have to pay in order to receive one of these units?
According to @upleaks, the leaker who has given us every Moto X Force rumor so far, the device will launch this December for 4,000 CNY, which is around $628 USD. In contrast, Motorola’s Moto X Style (aka Pure Edition) has just launched for the low price point of $399 off-contract. Seeing a bigger price tag associated with the Moto X Force should come as no surprise, especially given the potential bump up in specifications and features.
The Moto X Force is rumored to come with a “shatterproof” display, which could hint at a possible MIL-STD rating. According to other rumors, the Force could launch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of on-board storage, a 21MP rear-facing camera (likely the same sensor found in the Style), a 5MP front-facing camera and a big 3760mAh battery.
If the Moto X Force launches for upwards of $600, would you still be interested? Or would the non-shatterproof Moto X Style suffice? Tell us in the comment section below!
