We’re starting to see steady leaks come out of the Motorola camp recently. First it was the Moto 360, which has been leaked numerous times over the past few months. Then it was the new Moto X line followed by the Moto 360 Sport. Now we’re getting another look at the Moto X Force. The Force was originally leaked with it’s code name, “Bounce”. In that leak we learned that the Force will feature a 5.43″ QHD display, Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 SoC, 3 GB of RAM, 21 MP main camera and 5 MP front facing camera with a huge 3,760  mAh battery, shatterproof screen and either 32 or 64 GB of storage. Sounds like a monster.


There’s no telling about availability yet. Some had speculated this will be a Verizon exclusive but it appears that a re-branded Moto X Play will end up being named the Droid Maxx 2 here in the states.

We’re definitely seeing a shift from the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) approach that Motorola had adopted around the time they were acquired by Google. This year alone we’re going to see a new version of the Moto E, two versions of the Moto G (1 gb/8 gb and 2 gb/16 gb, four versions of the Moto X (Pure, Play, Style, and Force if this leak is accurate) and 3 versions of the Moto 360. It’s bold to step away from the strategy that had Motorola selling so many phones. This may pollute their product lines producing diminishing results or drive them to record sales. We’ll have to wait and see.

But this phone may be worth the money alone so I can tell my friends I called them using The Force.

Do you think there is enough different between the Moto phones to make a difference? Let us know in the comments how you think Motorola’s new strategy under Lenovo will shake out.

  1. I still love my Moto X gen 1 and it is now 2 years old. The battery still lasts all day with moderate use, and the features are still better in my opinion than the S6. I have instant and easy access to my camera with a snap of my wrist (I still get compliments on the quality of the photos – yes on my Motorola). I can have the screen off, phone sitting across the room, and just talk to my phone for just about anything, and I can see all notifications without even turning on my screen. I have an awesome and simple built in audio equalizer for listening to music. It has been super durable, still looks nice, and runs smooth. I don’t hear these things about a 2 year old Samsung or Apple for that matter. Keep your Samsung. I am on the Motorola train for life. Hello new Moto X, I will probably be upgrading to you soon.
