Moto Z2 Play Specifications Leaked, Slimmer Body and Reduced Battery Capacity

Share

We now know that reducing the thickness will lead to a significant reduction in battery capacity, a fact that we found out from the filtration of the characteristics of Moto Z2 Play. It's a mid-range version of the Moto Z, which debuted a couple months before the Moto Z Play.

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

Motorola introduced the Moto Z Play, an Android modular smartphone, last August.

Because the Moto Z Play proved itself a year ago to be the king of all in battery life, seeing Moto potentially put that reputation at risk for the sake of thinness was unfortunate. However, the first leak did not clarify anything in this sense since the dimensions were not filtered. The display of the phone is expected to remain the same as its predecessor. But we think as the update is starts rolling out in Canada and Brazil other regions of the globe will also gets the update very soon. The reduced battery size will obviously affect the device's usage time, decreasing it from 50 hours to 30 hours, the report said.

Earlier this year, the press renders of the yet to be official Motorola Moto Z2 Play hit the web. From what they've learned, the new phone will have a 3,000 mAh battery.

Leaving these aside, the Moto Z2 Play is speculated to arrive with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space while its predecessor has 3GB RAM and 32GB storage space.

As for the screen, Lenovo seems to lean over the same 5.5-inch AMOLED screen and FHD resolution. It'll probably be among the first to be launched as part of Motorola's 2017 lineup, perhaps alongside the Moto Z2 and Moto Z2 Force.

Finally, Lenovo made a decision 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.
