Lenovo-owned Motorola plans to launch a flagship-class smartphone, the Moto Z2 Force, at its product unveiling on July 25 in New York City, according to VentureBeat.

Set to follow the Z2 Play that Motorola launched in June, the Z2 Force will pack a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED OLED display with a 1440p resolution. The Z2 Force is like the 2016 version, with a slim design and support for Moto Mods. However, the new handset will lose 22 percent battery capacity.

Motorola is said to push the Android O update when the handset is launched.
