Motorola has announced a special edition collaboration with New York based designer Jonathan Adler, and the result is the new Moto X Pure Collection. These three phones have been designed by Adler and brings a unique touch to Motorola's current flagship with three new designs that will not be available through the normal Moto Maker process.
Motorola is always one of the quickest companies to upgrade to new Android builds, mainly because its handsets offer a light take on the platform. The Lenovo owned U.S. company is now starting its Android 6.0 Marshmallow rollout with the Moto X Style and the 2014 Moto X.
The Motorola Moto X Force, or the DROID Turbo 2 as it is known in the United States, is making its debut in the UK, available for pre-order. The company says the handset will start shipping on November 9, and will boast a solid price of £497.99 for a SIM free unlocked device. That is a good price compared to other flagships, which with its specs, the Moto X Force most definitely is.
Motorola and Verizon announced the DROID Turbo 2 yesterday, a decked out flagship with rugged build and a ShatterSheild screen. As always, Motorola will also launch the handset in other regions, without the DROID name and with Verizon on board. That international variant has been announced today as the Moto X Force, which becomes the company's most spec'd out smartphone (the Moto X Pure Edition is the flagship still).
While last year's Motorola DROID Turbo was widely dismissed, we were actually huge fans. It looked solid, had blazing specs, and had one of the very best smartphone batteries on the market. Motorola has shown this year that it can do a bona fide flagship very well; the Moto X Pure Edition is spiffing, and we knew that was the basis for the DROID Turbo 2. That means you can color us excited.
We smell something in the air. We have noticed that just before Motorola is tipped to announce a new smartphone there is a sizeable leak that confirms the handset in no doubt. That has happened again with the rumored DROID MAXX 2 as an email from inside Motorola seems to confirm the device, unless the company is trolling us.
The Motorola Force is also the Motorola Kinzie and the Motorola XT1585, while consumers in the United States are probably going to call it the DROID Turbo 2. Whatever the name of this device is, it will almost certainly be a beast, at least judging by the specs that were revealed as the handset passed through China's 3C certification website.
Motorola has updated its Motorola Connect app and brought plenty of new goodies to its Moto 360. The app for the Google Play Store allows users to update their devices and customize them, and now it is available for the newly launched Moto 360 2015.
When we first heard about the Moto Bounce a few months ago we called it as the next Motorola/Verizon DROID device. Yeah we are pretty much patting ourselves on the back here as the device that has since been known as the Moto X Force is reportedly going to be announced as the new Verizon DROID Turbo 2 in the next few months.
Motorola has launched its new wearables the Moto 360 (2015) and the Moto 360 Sport, and once again the company is vying to offer the smartwatch that most people want. Only the Apple Watch enjoyed more hype than Motorola's original Moto 360, so much is expected from the sequel to what was the round faced wearable of choice for many. For the most part the 360 (2015) and the Sport succeed on building on the original, but they are also hampered by the same pitfalls as all smartwatches.
