Today, Motorola is working to reinvent themselves as a company, and to start the initiative they’re launching the new Motorola Moto Z Force phone with compatibility for the Moto Mods that are apparently making the phones so popular. Key to the photography audience is the fact that Motorola is touting dual rear cameras on the back of the phone–one that has black and white capabilities and the other has color. There’s a flash below it.
Then on the front, there is a special CCT flash (which isn’t actually a flash at all but instead a really comparatively weak LED lamp) that analyzes the white balance of the area you’re in and matches it accordingly to give you a more color neutral image. Additionally they’re really promoting the depth of field effects–which are simulated. From the examples we saw during the presentation, they don’t truly look that great. But we’re going to need to do independent testing to verify this.
More details are after the jump.
