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 Moto Z2 Play comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD. It is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 626 and comes with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, and 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, expandable up to 2TB with a microSD card.
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.
The phone is compatible with last year's Moto Mods, but the company announced a couple of new ones such as Moto GamePad that turns your photo into a handheld gaming console, and Moto TurboPower pack which has a 3,490 mAh battery.
