Motorola's newest Moto Mod is a 360-degree camera

Moto Z with Moto Mods Experiential

As is to be expected, though, it's one of the flagship models for the unlocked phone maker, and is yet another take on the modular experience.

As is the case with recent Android flagships, the Moto Z2 Force Edition has a dual camera. This is somewhat of a departure for Motorola who had been heading toward a direct-to-consumer only route.

The Motorola Moto Z2 will be available in gray, black and gold color options. Perhaps, offering two similar models at once worked against it past year, but that's pure speculation. When you buy two Moto Z2 Force Edition phones on EIP and add a new line, you'll get a rebate in the form of a prepaid MasterCard card to cover the cost of the second device. Not forgetting of course, the Moto Z2 Force is compatible with the new selection (as well as the previous batch) of Moto Mods - a major selling point in its own right. The Moto Z2 was announced Tuesday in New York City. The only addition we see here is an expansion on the Moto Voice Action, now dubbed "Show Me".

New on the modding scene is a 360-degree camera that will set you back US$300 - it clips on to the top of your phone to capture the whole of the scene around you. Worry no more. The Moto Z Force Edition is redesigned from the ground up with a sexy unibody design that wraps an ultra-tough, water-resistant aluminum casing around Motorola's ShatterShield display, which is guaranteed not to crack or shatter. It has a little trouble locking down the correct exposure sometimes, though - we'll have to see how it handles brighter conditions. Pre-orders for the Moto Z2 start today. They can even add blur effects to the background or foreground of images.

The Mod uses the same magnetic pins to communicate with the phone, and it uses the default camera application on any of the Moto Z devices.

Motorola also announced a new Moto Mod today in the Moto 360 Camera, which can capture 360-degree 4K video as well as 150-degree wide angle photos when it launches on August 10th.

The Moto Z2 Play is impressively slender considering its size and that's something that translates over into the design of the Moto Z2 Force. The former carries a price tag of $299, while the latter is a bit cheaper at $79. The smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, which also powers phones like - Samsung Galaxy S8, Xiaomi Mi 6, HTC U11, and the OnePlus 5.
