Moto Z2 Play press renders have been leaked and there are a few things that can be surmised from the images. First, Moto loves the Moto Z Play's design. Second, it will have support for Moto Mods.

The Moto Z2 Play looks so much like its predecessor it's easy to mistake one for the other. The most visible difference between the two is the home button. The Moto Z Play sported a square button. Motorola decided to go with a more rounded one for the Moto Z2 Play which looks the same with the Moto G5. According to "TechnoBuffalo", the first to pick up the leaked press renders said that the redesigned home button will also act as a fingerprint sensor with the support of swiping gestures.

GSM Arena said it expects the Moto Z Play to be part of Lenovo and Motorola's mid-range line-up. If so, it will join the ranks of the Moto Z Play and Moto Z Force, it also means the device will likely be powered by Qualcomm's mid-range processor like the Snapdragon 652, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The Moto Z2 Play will also have a 5.5-inch 1080 pixel display and a powerful 3,510mAh battery

The render showed that the Moto Z2 Play will have the familiar Cyclops camera at the back. The possibly 16-megapixel rear camera is supported by another impressive selfie camera which sports a 5-megapixel pixel resolution. Also seen on the render is a wrap-around antenna band similar to that of the Moto Z Play.

As Trusted Reviews noted, previous Motorola devices such as the Moto Z and Moto Z play had support for Moto Mods. It's easy to assume then that the Z2 play will have the same. The leaked image shows the components that are necessary to attach Moto Mods to the phone's back.

The leaked image shows the weather condition, temperature, time, and date. The latter interestingly says June 8, Thursday. This has been taken by some as an indication as to when the Moto Z2 Play will be launched. This may all be just a coincidence. Apple's annual developer conference, WWDC, will be held around the same time.
