Motorola Moto X Force now available to pre-order in the UK
Released in the US since last week, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is also coming to Europe and Asia, though under a different name: Moto X Force.

As of this week, folks in the UK can pre-order the Moto X Force and expect to receive it as soon as November 9. Handtec is asking £497.99 (or about €700) for a SIM-free Motorola Moto X Force, while Carphone Warehouse is offering the smartphone for £529.99, or on monthly plans starting at £37.50 per month. At the moment, only the black version of the handset seems to be available to order.

Just like the Droid Turbo 2 (which is exclusively sold by Verizon Wireless), the Moto X Force sports a 5.4-inch shatterproof display with 1440 x 2560 pixels. This screen is guaranteed not to crack or shatter for 4 years, and drop tests are confirming that it should survive any everyday accident.

Currently running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, the Moto X Force will be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow (though Motorola didn't say exactly when this would happen). The handset is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, further featuring a 21 MP rear camera with 4K video recording, a 5 MP front-facing camera with flash, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a generous 3760 mAh battery.
