Moto X Force pre-orders start in the UK

The Moto X Force got official as the international version of Verizon’s Droid Turbo 2 last week, and now it’s already up for pre-order at several retailers in the UK.

You can pre-order the Moto X Force in SIM-free and unlocked form from Handtec for £497.99,Clove for £499, Expansys for £499.99, or Carphone Warehouse for £529.99.

If you want to get the phone on an operator contract, Carphone Warehouse is the only option for now. The Moto X Force is free on Pay monthly plans starting at £37.50 per month. That cheapest choice is at O2, and it delivers unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 1 GB of 4G data each month.

At the exact opposite end of the spectrum we find a £59.99 per month plan at EE, which gives you unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 20GB of data. There are many other options in between, though, as you’d expect.

Handtec expects to have the Moto X Force in stock on November 9, while Carphone Warehouse promises that pre-ordered units will be delivered by November 10, and Clove says the phone is due around November 14.

The Moto X Force has a shatterproof 5.4-inch QHD touchscreen, a 21 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front snapper, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 powering it, and a 3,760 mAh battery. It runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
