Well Motorola just unleashed another phone for this week.

It’s a force to be reckoned with.

The device is a Moto X variant that looks extremely familiar.  It’s almost as if this new device is actually just a renamed device for the international market.

What’s it called, Kev?!

Their newest (sorta) phone is the Moto X Force.

I’m going to get right to the point without wasting your time.  The Moto X Force is a rebranded DROID Turbo 2.

The bottom speakers still look odd

If you are one of those consumers who likes to keep their device logo-free, this may be a better option than the DROID Turbo 2.  Gone is the Verizon check mark that used to be between the bottom speakers.  The DROID branding is absent from the back as well.

It also may be a better buy if you want updates.  Since you won’t have to wait for carrier approval, you should theoretically get updates faster with the Moto X Force.

One of the only main differences between the DROID Turbo 2 and the Moto X Force are the base colors.

The DROID Turbo 2 comes in black or white soft grip, grey ballistic nylon, and black pebbled leather.

The Moto X Force only comes outfitted with black ballistic nylon.

However, they can both be customized to your heart’s content with Moto Maker.

Since it’s an international version, it does not come with CDMA network bands equipped for Verizon.  I knew what you were already thinking.

GSM / GPRS / EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS / HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz)
4G LTE (B1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 20, 25, 28, 40)

Motorola posted a drop test video to their official blog for the announcement of the Moto X Force.

The DROID Turbo 2 Moto X Force seemed to hold up quite well comparatively to the iPhone and Samsung.

The Moto X Force goes on sale in November and will be available in Latin America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA).  As of now the price is unknown, but you can register for updates.

By the way, unleashed and force were italicized because I was referring to the Star Wars video game…which seems oddly appropriate since the Turbo 2 is a DROID….WHICH JUST HAPPENS to be owned by Lucas Film.  Neat right?
