Lenovo-owned Motorola launched the Moto Z2 Play smartphone in US. The smartphone comes with Moto Voice assistant and supports 4 new Moto Mods. There is currently no news regarding the India launch of the device; but with the Motorola event coming up next, we will likely get more details then.
If you think of Moto Z2 Play as just a modular phone, then you cannot be more wrong as it is a well-built device that is slim and packs a ton of features along with a stock Android experience.
The smartphone sports a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 626 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and comes in two different models – a 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant and another 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. The storage capacity of the smartphone can be expanded via a microSD card up to 2TB.
Coming to other features, the Moto Z2 Play sports a 12-megapixel primary rear camera with dual-LED flash and f/1.7 aperture and a 5-megapixel wide-angle shooter in the front with a dual-LED flash. The smartphone also features fingerprint sensor on the home button, water repellent nano-coating and packs a 3,000mAh battery with Turbo Charge feature.
This is all well and good but the main attraction of the Moto Z series smartphones are the Moto Mods; and with the launch of the Moto Z2 Play, 4 new Moto Mods were launched as well. These mods include JBL SoundBoost 2 and TurboPower Pack that is available for $79 along with Moto Shells for wireless charging and a new Moto GamePad. All these Moto Mods will be available for purchase in US, except the Moto GamePad which will launch later this summer.
