The Moto X Force is the international version of the Droid Turbo 2

Coming to the UK next month

Yesterday Motorola and Verizon announced the Droid Turbo 2, the latest addition in their longstanding partnerships. Today, Motorola announced it's bringing that same phone to the UK, with a new name — the Moto X Force — and sans the Verizon and Droid branding and bloatware.

The Moto X Force will start at £499 for 32GB version and £534 for 64GB, featuring the same shatterproof display, Snapdragon 810 processor, and claim of 48 hours of battery life as the Droid Turbo 2. The Verizon-free Moto X Force should receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow sooner than its American counterpart, as Verizon has been known as the cog in the machine that slows down software updates from Google.

UK customers will get full Moto Maker support with the Moto X Force when it rolls out in mid-November on Motorola's UK website. The Moto X Force will also be sold through Carphone Warehouse, for £29.99 upfront and £32.00 per month on a two-year contract from Vodafone.
