Venture Beat has the marketing material of the Moto Z2 Force flagship smartphone. The promotional materials of the flagship reveal that the smartphone will be coming with major improvements in the chipset and photography departments. As previous rumors have suggested that the Moto Z2 Force will be fueled by the Snapdragon 835. The Moto Z Force from 2016 was driven by Snapdragon 820 chipset.
