After months of leaks, the Moto Z2 Play is finally official. The new generation of the Moto Z Play brings some design changes compared to the last year's model and the company has also announced a few new Moto Mods.

As rumored, the device is slightly thinner that its predecessor and comes with a smaller battery, which was confirmed by Lenovo before the launch. The Moto Z Play had a 3,510 mAh battery, while the Moto Z2 Play features a 3,000 mAh one.

The phone has a 12MP rear camera that can shoot 4K video and a 5MP front shooter. Other features include a fingerprint sensor and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Moto Z2 Play will be available in two colors - Lunar Gray, and Fine Gold. The device will be available exclusively on Verizon in the US in early July, and available on Motorola.com later this summer at a price of $499.
