The Dual-Cameras

Moto Z2 Force is Motorola’s first Dual-camera phone, and it has a Rear 12 MP (IMX 386 color sensor with 1.25µm pixels) with a  f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, laser-assisted Autofocus. And the second
The rear camera has 12 MP (IMX 386 monochrome sensor with 1.25µm pixels) with the aperture, coming in at f/2.0. Well, that’s quite a lot of Camera hardware you’re getting there.

Now let’s talk about what it is capable of. With the Monochrome sensor, you can shoot native black-and-white photos. While the joint strike of both the cameras together can do selective focusing(before and after shot) and Multi-image processing, even select which part of the photo should be in color and which part you want in Black and white and various wild Bokeh Effects.

Another great trick the Dual Cameras can perform is background replacement, where you select the focusing Object then the Depth Editor replaces the blurred background, makes it transparent with just the subject in focus, then you can shoot any other photo to be its background. That’s some creative trickery from Motorola this time.

 

The Moto Mods

The Moto-mods are the only excellent way to the market, to effortlessly Mod your smartphone. Motorola is also counting on this feature this year by bringing some unique mods this time. With the Moto Z2 Force, Motorola also launched the 360 Degree Camera Moto Mod. Which is capable of 360-DEGREE 4K VIDEO AT 24 FPS with 3D SOUND. The Mod features two 13-megapixel wide angle cameras. The hefty price tag of $299 of the 360 Degree Camera Moto Mod is yet to justify.

The Moto Z2 Force will fight the latest and the greatest of other OEMs flagship and comes at a price of $700. Will go on sale on 10th August, and you can pre-order it from here.
