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.
