Motorola DROID Turbo 2 to launch in Europe and Asia as the Moto X Force
posted by Paul K. / Oct 29, 2015, 9:39 AM
It was only 2 days ago when Motorola held a special event to announce two brand-new smartphones – the DROID Turbo 2 and DROID MAXX 2. Well, not entirely brand-new, as the MAXX 2 is just a renamed version of the Moto X Play, which has been available in Europe and Canada for a while. The Turbo 2, however, is a smartphone that hasn't graced any part of the world yet – a true Verizon US exclusive.
And you may be a bit jealous, as it's a pretty good phone. With a 5.4” 1440x2560 screen, a Snapdragon 810, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3,760 mAh battery, quick charging, and wireless charging the Turbo 2 looks like a power user's dream. Fret not, however – you may still be able to get this handset rather soon.
The DROID Turbo 2 will be rebranded and launched outside the US as the Moto X Force – this becomes clear from a video that was uploaded to Motorola Mobility's YouTube channel today. The description, as well as the video, is short and to the point – “Coming to Latin America, EMEA and APAC starting in November".
What about USA users? Well, it's safe to assume that getting a Turbo 2 that is not locked to Verizon isn't going to be possible any time soon. Best one could do is wait until the Moto X Force hits Canada, check if it supports your carrier's bands, and import.

God, the front looks even worse in these photos because the speakers are so dark. Only thing that sticks out is Verizon's signature gigantic unnecessary logo.

...which is irrelevant to the Moto X Force.

No need to wait for Canada there's this place called Mexico in Latin America that the US could also import from...
