Motorola Announces October 24 Event, Likely Moto Z2 Force China Launch

by Habeeb Onawole 0

Motorola has taken to Weibo to announce that it has an event scheduled for October 24. The 10-second long video shows a mash-up of short clips possibly recorded with a phone. Our guess is that the launch is for the Moto Z2 Force.

Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force was announced back in July but still hasn’t been unveiled in China. It was seen on TENAA in August with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, so that should be the variant China is getting.

The Moto Z2 Force is powered by the Snapdragon 835 processor. It has a 5.5-inch P-OLED QHD display and dual 12MP rear cameras. There is a 5MP front facing camera with its own LED. A 2730mAh battery sits under the brushed metal back. The fingerprint scanner is below the display and there is a USB-C port for audio and charging.

Like the first generation Moto Z series, the Moto Z2 Force has a bunch of connection pins at the back for connecting it to a Moto Mod. It will work with all of the first gen Moto Mods alongside the new ones released this year.

Motorola USB-C Earphones

Apart from the Moto Z2 Force, Motorola may also release its own USB-C in-ear headphones. A second teaser image shows a pair of headphones made to form the figure 5 with a text that translates into “5 days to the event”. The earphones is plugged to a phone we believe is the Moto Z2 Force (the Moto Z2 Play has an audio jack).

The earphone has an in-line remote with volume controls and a call button. It also appears to have braided wires. We have no idea how much this will cost or if it will come bundled with the phone for free.
