The upcoming flagship by Lenovo-owned Motorola, the Moto Z2 Play, is going to come up with some significant changes in its design. With a far slimmer design, the model will feature a smaller battery than its predecessor Moto Z Play. While Moto Z Play offered a pretty powerful battery of 3,510mAh, which lasts up to two days on a single charge, the upcoming Moto Z2 Play will only offer a 3,000mAh battery, which will last up to just one day and six hours. However, that is the only downside to the device as most of the other features will see an upgrade in the new model.
Moto Z2 Play will be powered by Snapdragon 626 processor clocked at 2.0Ghz. Additionally, the device will come with 4GB RAM, which is 1GB more than Moto Z Play. The internal built-in storage will also be doubled to 64GB. It will run on Android 7.1 Nougat.
Speaking of the camera, the device will sport a 12-megapixels camera with f/1.7 aperture and dual-focus pixels and a 5-megapixels secondary camera. The device will sport a 5.5-inch full HD resolution display, as per Indian Express.
Its home button located at the front will also function as a fingerprint sensor along with a near bezel-less display, earpiece and the usual array of sensors. It also has magnetic pins attached to its rear end through which MotoMods can be attached. It has its volume controls at the right-hand side and just beneath that, is the power button.
The device will be available in two color variants – Fine Gold and Lunar Gray. Although its release date has not been confirmed by the company, it is being speculated that the device will be launched in June this year.
Lenovo sells its smartphones under three brand names – Lenovo, Moto, and Lenovo Moto.
Whether the new modification of slimming down the design at the expense of a less powerful battery is welcomed by fans or not, remains to be seen.
