Motorola Announces The Moto X Force, Coming To Various International Markets Starting In November

Motorola has officially announced the Moto X Force, the international version of the DROID Turbo 2 that became available from Verizon Wireless earlier today. You might remember it by its codename, Bounce.

The company didn't say much in the announcement. Actually, it didn't say anything. We're treated to a 'coming soon' page on Motorola's UK site (pictured above) and this YouTube video highlighting the phone's Moto ShatterShield display. Watch it fall. See how much better it sticks the landing than those other guys.

Oh, underneath that is a note: the phone is coming to Africa, the Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America starting in November.

The DROID Turbo 2 And Maxx 2 Are Now Available For Purchase From Verizon

You can't get the new Moto X from any of the carriers directly, but Verizon does have two Motorola devices ready to go right now. The newly announced DROID Maxx 2 and Turbo 2 are on sale through Verizon's website and in stores. The Turbo 2 is the more expensive of the two, but the Maxx 2 isn't what I'd call cheap, either.

Editorial: Moto's New DROID Phones Ship With Android 5.1, And They Deserve Every Second Of Crap They Get For It

Shatter-proof screen? Check. Ginormous battery? Check. High-end rear camera? Check. Latest version of Android? [???fix later]. This is the story of the DROID Turbo 2 and Maxx 2, which were just announced today, October 27th, 2015, 22 days after Android 6.0 Marshmallow's source code was made publicly available, and multiple months since OHA members have had development source available to them for updates and new devices. Can we see why this is a problem? I hope we can see why it is a problem.

Here's the thing, Motorola. You're already in hot water with loyal customers because of software updates, and many more such customers are now worried that their devices, too, will end up abandoned before their time.

Verizon Officially Unveils The DROID Turbo 2 With 'Shatterproof' Screen And Moto Maker, Coming October 29th Starting At $624

Previous rumors asserted that a beefed up version of the Moto X Style called the Moto X Force would come to the US as a Verizon exclusive known as the DROID Turbo 2. Rumors also said Verizon would boast about a so-called unbreakable display and introduce Moto Maker to a DROID device for the first time. Still with me? Good, because as previously leaked promotional materials showed, all of these claims were true, and now we're getting the official word straight from the horse's mouth. Verizon revealed the DROID Turbo 2 at its previously announced press event today (alongside the mid-range DROID Maxx 2) and proceeded to drop the device from around six feet onto concrete.

After A False Start, Blackberry Is Now Taking Pre-Orders For The Android-Powered Priv For $699

Earlier this week Blackberry's official online store posted a pre-order page for the Priv, a high-end QWERTY slider phone that also happens to be the company's first full Android device. Apparently that was a bit premature - it disappeared after a short time, but not so short that prospective customers didn't balk at the $749 USD starting price. Today the pre-order page is back with a slightly cheaper price: $699. Was the original page an error or did Blackberry see the quick reaction and adjust it down? We couldn't say. The page says the phone will start shipping on November 6th.

Motorola Is Already Testing Marshmallow On The Moto X Pure Edition, No Soak Test Just Yet

Motorola started to cultivate a reputation for reliable and quick Android updates after the company was acquired by Google... then began to shoot itself in the foot following the Marshmallow release. It looks like the company is still interested in timely updates for its flagship phones, at least: Motorola Senior Director David Schuster told his Google+ followers that engineers have already begun testing Android 6.0 on the Moto X Pure Edition (that's the new Moto X Style if you live outside the US).

"There have been a couple reports of a Marshmallow "soak test" that has started for Moto X 2015 Pure Edition.

Verizon DROID Turbo 2 And DROID Maxx 2 Promotional Pamphlet Leak Confirms Rumored Details

Verizon's yearly refresh of its exclusive DROID line is fast approaching. The company will announce its new Motorola-produced phones on October 27th (a week from Tuesday), but thanks to a series of leaks, there won't be a lot of surprises on stage. The latest one is a pamphlet for the DROID Turbo 2, a high-end sequel to last year's flagship, and the DROID Maxx 2, a mid-range option that focuses on battery life. The leak comes from Droid Life, and it confirms several details that were leaked and/or rumored previously.

HTC's New 'Restore' App Is Only For Android 6.0 Devices (Which HTC Doesn't Have Yet)

HTC has promised to reveal an Android 6.0-powered device on October 20th, and that event is just around the corner next Tuesday. But the company hasn't released any upgrades for its current devices just yet (not that anyone really expected them to at this point). Despite that, HTC just released a new app on the Play Store, HTC Restore, which is only compatible with Marshmallow HTC phones. All none of them. Presumably the app is on the Play Store in advance of that new phone, which we expect to be the HTC One A9 "Aero."

[That Was Fast] LG Announces Android 6.0 Updates For The G4 Are Starting Next Week With Poland First Up

For the second year in a row, LG is announcing a lightning-fast rollout for the new version of Android on its flagship phone. The LG G4 will start getting Marshmallow next week, but only if you live in Poland. That was also the first G3 Lollipop market last year. LG likes Poland, I guess. Other markets in Europe, Asia, and the Americas are to follow.
