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.
Documents for a new LG device have appeared on the FCC's website yesterday with the product number "H815PX". The LG G4's product number for the South American and South African variant is "H815P".
It is not clear why LG would keep the "815**" code since the US variants use the numbers "H810", and "H811" for AT&T and T-Mobile, respectively, while Sprint and Verizon models don't even start with "H" but "LS" and "VS".
The original launch of the LG G4 did not include wireless charging out of the box, rather, an optional charging cover was required to use this feature. These FCC documents show wireless charging as a major feature of this device. Could this be a variant of the LG G4 with wireless charging out of the box coming out in time for the holiday season?
Could this even be the LG G5? Unlikely - perhaps this is just a refresh of the LG G4 and not even a brand new phone. We just don't see how this can be an LG G5 when the product number on the documents is so close to the original G4's "H815" released back in April of this year.
At this point, for all we know this could even be an LG V10 variant. There isn't any way of knowing until LG sends out invitations for an event or carriers start selling new variants of the same phone.
LG started rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to the G4 smartphone in Poland last month, and now the update has begun hitting the flagship device in the company's home country of South Korea.
Poland isn't particularly a major market for the company, so last month's roll out there was essentially a test run. And with Android 6.0 now rolling out in a main region like South Korea, it looks like LG didn't face any major issues with the update in the European country.
In South Korea, G4 devices with model numbers LG-F500K, LG-F500L, and LG-F500S are currently getting the update, which brings features like the new Doze mode that helps save your device's battery, better permissions management and microSD support, and more. A couple of LG apps - Q+ and Bridge - have also been renamed to Memo Capture + and AirDrive, respectively.
There's currently no information on which regions will be getting the update next.
