Moto Z2 Play will be thinner with a smaller battery

Moto is Apparently Bringing One of the Lenovo Yoga Book's Best Features to a New Tablet

The update is packed with Security patch along with fixes for specific vulnerabilities in the Android operating system while also resolving some security issues related to the particular software running on the Moto Z Play.

One of the biggest selling points of the Moto Z Play has been its battery life, so it's kind of odd to hear that Motorola may be substantially slimming down the battery included with the Moto Z2 Play.

Ultimately, the Moto Z2 Play remains fairly similar to the original device, with a few upgrades.

Lenovo is supposedly minimizing the upcoming Z2 Play's battery from 3510mAh to 3000mAh, which means it'll go from 50 hours of anticipated backup to 30 hours.

The Moto Z2 Play is going to slim down to 5.99mm and 145g.

Lenovo-owned Motorola is working on a follow-up to the Moto Z Play, but it might not be as awesome as the original. The device will also likely include an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 626.


The Android 7.1.1 Nougat-powered Moto Z2 Play will therefore be 6mm thick and weigh 145g.

Furthermore, the phone will have 4 GBs of RAM (compare to the Z Play which had 3 GBs). The smartphone will have eight ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz as well as an Adreno 506 GPU. The internal storage is doubled and set to a satisfying 64 GBs. The Display on the Moto Z2 Play is expected to be the exact same 5.5 inch 1920 x 1080p display.

Finally, Lenovo chose to replace the 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with a 12-megapixel one, but image quality should not be worse thanks to the camera having f/1.7 component featuring dual auto-focus. To that end, gone is the 16-megapixel, f/2.0 module, replaced by a 12-megapixel, f/1.7 component featuring dual autofocus pixels.

It will be released alongside other phones in the Moto Z lineup for 2017 and will be available in grey and gold color options.

The list of specifications of Moto Z2 Play is reduced to the main parameters of every smartphone.
