Motorola Moto X Force (aka DROID Turbo 2) "3C" certified in China

Motorola Moto X Force (aka DROID Turbo 2) "3C" certified in China
Just the other day, we informed you that the Motorola XT1585, previously pinned to a unannounced phone code named the Motorola Kinzie, had been certified by the GCF. The rumored specs happen to match those expected for the Motorola Moto X Force. The buzz around the water cooler is that this phone will carry an unbreakable 5.43-inch glass, and will be marketed in the U.S. as the Motorola DROID Turbo 2, making it a Verizon exclusive in the states.

Out of China today comes some evidence that a Motorola model XT1581 has been certified in the country by China's 3C certification website. The phone is believed to be a country specific model of the Moto X Force. The certification only proves that the device will support TD-LTE connectivity.

The Moto X Force certainly offers specs that would fit with the idea that it could be a sequel for the Motorola DROID Turbo in the U.S. We expect the handset to have an unbreakable 5.43-inch screen, with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The Snapdragon 810 SoC will drive the device, bringing with it an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB/64GB of native storage. The camera combo from back to front weighs in at 21MP/5MP, and a 3760mAh battery keeps the lights on. The phone could be priced at $630 USD.

We should see the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and Motorola DROID MAXX 2 both released this month. While the former is believed to be the Verizon exclusive version of the Moto X Force, Google has already inadvertently confirmed that the latter is the Verizon exclusive version of the Motorola Moto X Play.

Thanks for the tip!

Any chance they may be adding a fingerprint sensor?

Not unless it's hiding under the ugly ass Verizon checkmark.

Thumbs Up if you thought Motorola was going to release a Force Touch Phone.

I just thought they were going to exploit the Force name in the US as a Force Awakens tie-in. Turbo 2? How does that have anything to do with Star Wars?

It's already been reported that Verizon will be a marketing partner for the film. What are they going to say? "Feel the power of the Force in the palm of your hand with the powerful new Droid... Turbo 2." Oy.

Unbreakable glass. There is no such thing.

Unless it's not glass. Plexiglass? Even sapphire is breakable.

P-OLED (Plastic-OLED).

That's what the G Flex uses, right? I need to do more research on P-OLED. I had it confused with PMOLED.

There are more differences than that.

You're getting this one confused with the X Play. X Force is different SoC, screen, memory, body... Pretty much everything.
