After months and months of leaks and rumors, Moto Z2 Play
has finally taken out off the wraps by Lenovo on 1st June.
As far as design is concerned, the Moto Z2 Play
doesn’t stray too far off from the original Z Play’s design. Of course, The phone is thinner at 5.99 mm
, compared to the Moto Z Play’s 7 mm. The smartphone has a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED
display with the standard designed body. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 626
processor packed with 3 or 4GB RAM
and onboard storage of 32 or 64GB RAM
along with the microSD expansion up to 2 TB.
The device also supports a USB Type-C port, and yes, a 3.5 mm headphone jack as well. The Z2 Play runs the latest version of Android, 7.1.1 Nougat.
Moto features like Moto Display, Moto Voice, and Moto Actions are already present in the device.
Talking about the camera, the Z2 Play includes a 12 MP Dual Autofocus Pixel camera
, complete with phase-detection, laser autofocus, a f/1.7 aperture, a dual-LED flash, and a 1.4 μm pixel size. The 5MP selfie shooter
also promises to capture decent pictures with high details and sharpness, with its 5 MP sensor, f/2.2 aperture, 1.4 μm pixel size, and front-facing flash.
However, we have a thing to worry a bit about. The battery!
The device has a decreased battery capacity as compared to Moto Z Play's 3,510mAh battery. Z2 Play came up with 3,000mAh
battery capacity only. But, it's not necessary that the device with lower battery capacity will also have lower battery life. Well, to confirm that we have to wait until we get a chance to review it. Lenovo has stated, the users will be able to get up to eight hours of usage on just a 15-minute charge. That's pretty good!
Moto Z2 Play will be available in Lunar Gray
and Fine Gold
color variants and Verizon will be the carrier exclusive for the device. The device is said to be available on Verizon in July.
No worries if you are not a Verizon customer, you'll soon be able to buy an unlocked version of the device "later this summer" for $499.
As per the news, Lenovo
will also launch new Moto Mods along with the device. These mods include JBL SoundBoost 2 ($79.99), a Wireless Charging Style Shell ($39.99), a Moto TurboPower Pack Charger ($79.99), as well as a GamePad ($79.99).
