Moto Z2 Play: Latest Motorola Modular Phone Outshines Its Predecessor
The new Moto Z2 Play from Motorola and Lenovo is the latest modular smartphone in their stable. Its predecessor, the Moto Z Play, was one of the sleeper hits last year. The Moto Z2 Play figures to be even more successful mainly because of the simple fact that t is generally a lot better than the Moto Z Play.
The new mid-range modular phone comes in almost the same amiable design. It still comes with a 5.5-inch display allowing users to snap Moto Mods on. The biggest difference, design-wise, is the Z2 Play's thickness. It is now thinner than the original by a millimeter which basically means it is now only 6mm thick and weighs 145 grams.
The super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display comes with a 1080 x 1920 pixel density. The Moto Z2 Play will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 and will come with 3GB to 4GB of RAM and 32GB to 64GB built-in storage. The Z2 Play will run on Android Nougat 7.1.1 out of the box
The Z2 Play's cameras are impressive for a mid-range phone. It comes with a 5 megapixel front camera and a 12 megapixel rear shooter. Other interesting features of the handset are its improved front-mounted fingerprint scanner and a traditional 3.5mm jack.
The Verge also mentioned that the Moto Z2 Play has support for Moto Mods. This simply means owners can use any of Motorola's Mods line-up to enhance their Z2 Play experience. Current Moto Mods in the market include the Hasselblad TruZoom, Moto Insta-Share Projector, JBL SoundBoost, and the Incipio offGRID Power Pack.
Tom's Guide reported that the only bad thing that can be said about the Moto Z2 Play is its smaller battery. This move by Motorola is quite intriguing. The Moto Z Play was known for its impressive battery life.
The Moto Z2 Play is worth $499 and will be available starting this summer. It will be offered through Verizon and will be unlocked.
