Moto Z2 Play to sacrifice battery life for slimmer body

Moto X Pure Edition Review

Back then, the smartphone was believed to be the upgraded version of the original Moto Z Play that was announced in the previous year. The first generation Moto Z was well known for its slim profile and exceptionally good battery life. While the original Moto Z Play had a 3510mAh battery, the Moto Z2 Play will likely come with a 3000mAh battery and be 1mm thinner and 20g lighter. However, according to a leak by Evan Blass over at VentureBeat, the second generation model will be slimmer than its predecessor, but as a result will face a reduction in battery capacity. From what they've learned, the new phone will have a 3,000 mAh battery. One of the great things about the first Moto Z Play was that it didn't make this tradeoff, offering an approximate 50 hours of battery life on a device that's only moderately thicker than the leading flagships. The Moto Z2 Play is expected to run on the Snapdragon 626 at 2.2GHz clock speed with the same Adreno 506 GPU. The tablet is said to have a "premium look and feel", but most of its specs are unknown. On the software side, the Moto Z2 Play will seemingly ship with Android 7.1.1 out of the box.

This may not go down well with the fans of the Z Play who were planning an upgrade this year. The internal storage is doubled and set to a satisfying 64 GBs.

The list of specifications of Moto Z2 Play is reduced to the main parameters of every smartphone. In addition to a smaller battery, the camera may actually get a resolution downgrade, even though it may also see a higher image quality with a new 12-megapixel, f/1.7 component. The display is pretty much the same, but there's nothing to complain about the Super AMOLED 1080 x 1920, 5.5-inch screens.

The Z2 Play will come in dark and gold colors and is probably going to be released with two other Moto Z handsets in the not so distant future. Those include the new entry-level Moto C and C Plus, the Moto E4 and E4 Plus, and the Moto Z2 and Moto Z2 Force.
