Android Oreo Update for the Moto Z2 Force on T-Mobile Released

Following in the footsteps of Verizon from last week, T-Mobile has released the Android Oreo update for the Moto Z2 Force on their network.  The update, which is just shy of 1GB in size, brings all of the goodness of Oreo to the 2017 flagship device as well as the December Android Security Update.  The new build, like Verizon, is ODX27.

With the size of this update, you will need to download it via WiFi and will need to have 80% battery life on your phone before you can install it.  The install process will take about 10-15 minutes after it is downloaded.

I reviewed the Z2 Force earlier this year and it is an impressive device with the Moto Mods adding things like 360° cameras.   It is powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC processor, an octa-core processor with 4×2.35 GHz Kryo & 4×1.9 GHz Kryo cores.  It is coupled with the Adreno 540 GPU which gives great graphics performance with the 835.  This SoC/GPU combination is married up with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage built into the chassis.  That storage can be expanded an additional 256GB thanks to the dedicated MicroSD slot.

The display is a 5.5″ P-OLED capacitive touchscreen that renders at 1440 x 2560 pixels.  That gives you a very comfortable ~534 ppi (Pixels Per Inch) so eye strain won’t be a problem for most.  That display is listed as “shatterproof” by Motorola and, in fact, the guarantee it.

The rear main camera of the Z2 Force is a dual camera configuration with each camera listed at 12MP f/2.0

If you have the Moto Z2 Force on T-Mobile, you can expect the update to hit your phone over the course of the next few days.
