Motorola unveils first anti-shatter smartphone


Moto X Force comes with ‘ShatterShield’ and five layers that absorb shock; available in the UK from mid-November 

Motorola has unveiled the world’s first ant-shatter smartphone – the Moto X Force.

The high-end smartphone features Moto ShatterShield, made from five layers that absorb shock from impact. The display and embedded lens are warranted against shattering and cracking for four years from the original date of purchase.

It is powered by 2GHz quad-core processor, runs the Android OS and is guarded by nano-coating technology to make it water repellant.

The Moto X Force features a 5.4-inch Quad HD AMOLED touchscreen, has 21 megapixel rear and five megapixel front cameras, HD video recording, 3GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of internal memory that can be expanded by up to 2TB with a microSD card.

Motorola said the 3,760mAh battery can last for 48 hours and with its TurboPower technology, can gain 13 hours of power with 15 minutes of charging. It is also compatible with wireless charging.

The Moto X Force will be available from mid-November via Carphone Warehouse, from £29 upfront on a £32 a month contract. It can also be bought from SIM-free for £499 (32GB) and £534 (64GB).
