Shatterproof Motorola Moto X Force to arrive this December, priced at $628 USD?

Shatterproof Motorola Moto X Force to arrive this December, priced at $628 USD?
Tipster @upleaks has taken to his Weibo page to pass along a new rumor about the Motorola Moto X Force. This is the unannounced Moto X model that is reportedly sporting a shatterproof display. Originally called the Motorola Bounce, we expect this device to feature a 5.4-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. Powered by the Snapdragon 810 chipset, the phone will come with 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal storage (two different variations of the phone are expected).

A large capacity 3760mAh juicer keeps the generator humming, and the rumored camera combo from back to front comes in at 21MP/5MP. With a rugged theme, we wouldn't be surprised to see Motorola go with an IP certification instead of its usual nanocoating. The latter protects phones from splashes and light rain. The IP X7 certification on the Motorola Moto G allows the phone to be submerged in up to 3.2 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes.

Ah! We almost forgot the rumor. According to @upleaks, Motorola will be selling the phone this December, at a price of $628. If this phone makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up, better start putting away some money now.


Thanks for the tip!

This phone with a 5" screen will be so appreciated.

Unfortunately the day of small compact phones are numbered. It really sucks because not everyone wants a big ass phone, but oh well their mentality is, lets just f**k over the consumer and not offer different choices because we know what's best for them.

for me 5.2 in max, and even that is pushing the limit

For me 5.5" is the minimum.

The problem for you, and the petite lover were, the economic doesn't add up. Most premium sold is the large phone. This is the reason that samsung can't ignore the phablet size and release 5.7" edge+. Sony suddenly releasing the 5.5" premium phone. Motorola releasing the X Style with 5.7". This is also the reason that every major manufacture right now were upping the size. If you really like the petite premium. VOTE with your wallet to buy one. Otherwise, manufacture will assume no one want small phone.

I agree, there is a lack of high-end smartphones like that with 5" or less...

But there are some 5-5.1 inch phones that have flagship specs..

There is the s6 active with a 5.1 inch screen.

11. TyrionLannister unregistered

S6 active is a little too big for 5.1 inch. Plus, it's not available in my country.

What about the z5 compact that is coming out?

27. TyrionLannister unregistered

720p screen, too thick for the size, 2 GB RAM, glossy plastic build on the sides. Plus, the point is we need options. One phone isn't enough.

Galaxy S6/S6 edge iPhone 6 HTC One M9

33. TyrionLannister unregistered

One M9: too big for a 5 inch phone, plus too thick. S6/edge: Again, 5.1 inchers. iPhone 6: Yes, that's a phone.

I am sure there is not that big of a difference between 5 inches and 5.1 inches. Besides the S6 has a screen to body ratio >70% while for the iPhone 6, its close to 65%. Basically I think any phone in the 5-5.2 in segment with small bezels is good enough but anything beyond that is too big. But then, that's just my opinion.

Verizon customers, your 2015 Droid. May the Force be with you.

If it comes with expandable storage I may pick this one up, if not I'll just go for the customized Moto X Pure Edition...I'm waiting on for a few reviews before I pull the trigger on the Moto X Pure Edition, by then there should be more info about the Moto X Force floating around.

My assumption is that it will have microSD, since both the Play and Pure have it. My interest in this device will come down to size and heft, and how much bloatware Verizon dumps on it. Camera will be identical to the Pure, which is to say good but not the best. I'm also wary of battery life with the SD810.

Smh really Motorola?

Apple logo on the back and he is sold.

Make it $1000 and he is sold with the fruit logo. You know the sheep likes spending %100 more for their iphones. They just feel cheap if the iphone is only $999.:)

He wants Motorola to give up because they can do no right in his eyes.

22. Mxyzptlk unregistered

To the ones who stupidly still thinks I use strictly Apple needs to actually read some of my previous comments. I passed on the Note 5 and stayed with my Note 4 and I'm looking at the Style. So shut it.

That surprises me. I knew you weren't a pro-iPhone anti-Android troll, but I thought you only posted on Motorola articles because you hated Motorola.

It's true, he's the biggest Motorola Troll. He says that he's looking at the Style only so he can say that he bought it and hated it and returned it the next day. This guy lives in these Motorola articles simply to talk trash and piss people off. He's always like, "Specs suck" and "their phones are too expensive", and when you prove him wrong by comparing what Motorola offers to the rest of the industry he ignores logic and reason, changes the subject and calls you "salty".

It would be easy if he were purely troll with nothing to say, but occasionally he will make a valid point or make me think for a moment. But on the whole, I get a vibe of "it's the Bionic all over again." It's been four years. Motorola has been through two new owners since then. It's a different company now, with the best Android experience IMO.

39. Mxyzptlk unregistered

He's in denial. I don't pay attention to Scott.

I wasn't aware you were able to see in the future. Oh wait you're just talking out of your rear end.
