Verizon has become the first US carrier to update the Moto Z2 Force to Android Oreo. The carrier has released build ODX27.109-34 for the Z2 Force, bringing Oreo and all of its goodness to the July 2017 flagship device from Moto.
As you would expect, the update is sizable at around 900MB, making it one that you will want to download while you are WiFi and have at least 80% battery life. Installation should take 10-15 minutes and a reboot is required.
As you would expect, the update for the Moto Z2 Force includes the December Android Security Update as part of the overall Oreo update.
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 Verizon, you can expect the update to hit your phone over the course of the next few days.
