Moto X Force smartphone is official, boasts ‘shatterproof’ screen

Motorola’s US launch of the Droid Turbo 2 was great for our transatlantic pals, but what about the humble UK?

Fortunately, Motorola has announced the Moto X Force, the international equivalent of the Droid Turbo 2.

The handset’s modus operandi is hardiness, and features what Motorola describes as “the world’s first shatterproof smartphone display”.

Aside from Ross Kemp grade toughness, it’s also got a respectable roster of components.

The Moto X Force has a 5.4-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, protected by Motorola’s ShatterShield technology.

It also boasts a Snapdragon 810 processor, a claimed 48-hour battery life, and two cameras – 21-megapixel and 5-megapixel.

The handset is also eligible for customisation via Motorola’s Moto Maker scheme.

This lets you choose “premium new design options” like durable ballistic nylon and genuine pebbled leather.

The Moto X Force will be available to purchase in the UK directly from Motorola.co.uk starting in mid-November.

The 32GB version of the handset will cost £499, while the 64GB is priced at £534.

It’s also going to be made available at Carphone Warehouse, starting £32 per month, with a £29.99 upfront fee.
