Last month we had reported about Moto X Force arriving in India in November. And now, Motorola has announced an imminent release of the Moto X Force in the country. The phone, famous because of its ‘crack-proof’ screen, will soon hit the Indian markets.
After the Moto X Play followed by the low-cost flagship Moto X Style, the Moto X Force will be Motorola’s first smartphone to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset this year. While it may seem a bit too late to the flagship party, Motorola has a few tricks up its sleeves, which also happens to be the USP of the X Force.
That would be the shatter-proof screen that protects its Quad HD flexible P-OLED display that makes for Motorola’s ShatterShield technology. More importantly, Motorola will also provide a 4 year warranty on the device’s screen to make the deal sweeter. Also thrown in, is the now standard water-resistant nano-coating, which makes the device more durable when compared to its competitors. The much-talked about 21 MP unit from the Moto X Style also makes it here.
“Then, a dual touch layer with redundancy was created to help it survive accidents. Often, after a drop, the touch layer can go bad and your touch doesn’t work as well. So we’ve added a failsafe mechanism,” Motorola said in a blog post, adding: “The next layer is the interior lens which provides a clear protective shield that won’t crack or shatter. Lastly, we topped it off with an exterior lens that has a unique hardcoat that helps protect the display against normal wear and tear.”
Motorola infact offering four year warranty for the display.
Like the display, the Moto X Force looks equally tough from inside with the 2 GHz octa core Snapdragon 810 processor, 3 GB RAM and 2 TB expandable storage capacity. It comes in 32 GB and 64 GB storage options. The phone though comes with the Android Lollipop version and not the latest Android Marshmallow operating system.
Besides, the Motorola Moto X Force offers a 21 megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection auto focus and dual LED flash light. For selfies, it has a 5 megapixel front camera. The smartphone offers 4G, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1 LE, WiFi and a 3760 mAh battery.
The highlight of the device is its super-hardy screen. Motorola claims to have integrated a ‘Moto Shattershield’ technology in the display of Moto Force which, it says, is the first shatterproof screen in a phone ever. The company feels confident enough to affirm the screen would stay intact for up to four years, owing to the multiple layers of different materials used in making it capable of absorbing shock and providing protection against cracking. The phone also boasts of two touchscreen layers, which make sure that the smartphone can be used even if one of the layers is cracked.
Needless to say, Motorola cannot stop talking about its first ever shatter-proof phone in the world. Let’s see if Moto X Force manages to live up to all the expectations. Watch this space for all the updates
