Lenovo is set to debut its next-gen Moto Z Force smartphone at an event on July 25th, and we’ve been hearing a lot about the smartphone in recent times. A new report out VentureBeat sheds even more light on the smartphone, but it doesn’t seem like today’s news will be favored by many.

According to the report, the Moto Z2 Force, as it’s formally known, will carry a 2730mAh battery. That’s 22% less than what the Z2 Play packs, while it’s also probably a lot smaller than what your phone houses. This change is due to the company wanting to make the phone even thinner than last year by shaving off a full-on millimeter. I’m not sure how many people are asking for such a thin phone, but they could be and I just don’t know it.

To put this cell into perspective, it’s more on par with what the smaller, 5-inch Google Pixel features (which is 2770mAh, by the way). And at least on paper, it’ll probably be hard to power a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and dual rear cameras with a battery smaller than 3,000mAh and have it last all day. But hey, maybe they’ll make up for it in software optimization with Android 7.1.1 Nougat?

Also noted in today’s report was the fact that the handset will receive an upgrade to Android O when it’s released, it’ll come in Super Black, Fine Gold, and Lunar Grey, and it’ll pack 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage over seas. Considering we’re less than a week away from seeing this phone officially at this point, we should get a lot more details in the very near future.
