Lenovo brand Moto is set to launch a new smartphone on Thursday, and it is heavily expected to be the Moto Z2 Play. The successor of the Moto Z Play is tipped to see little change with respect to design, but will have boosted specifications on paper. The Moto Z2 Play has been leaked on multiple occasions in the past, giving us a comprehensive idea of what to expect from the smartphone.
While the price of the Moto Z2 Play has not been leaked so far, it is expected to be priced in the same range as the predecessor, or a tad bit higher. The Moto Z Play was launched in September last year and came with a price tag of $499 (approximately Rs. 33,500).
Based on leaked renders, the Moto Z2 Play seems to look a lot like its predecessor, except for a few subtle changes. Most notably, the Home Button in the front takes up a round capsule-like shape, instead of the square shape seen on the Moto Z Play earlier. The successor sees the same round camera bump and is expected to bring support for old Moto Mods as well. Some of the details confirmed by leaked images include front-facing LED flash, a USB Type-C port for charging, and it is expected to miss out on the 3.5mm audio jack.
For specifications, the Moto Z2 Play is said to come with a 5.5-inch full-HD display and be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor coupled with 4GB RAM. The phone is said to pack 64GB storage and come with expandable storage support via microSD card. The Z2 Play is further rumoured to sport a 12-megapixel rear camera alongside a 5-megapixel front camera. The rear camera of the handset is widely expected to support 4K video recording. The leaked press renders claim that the handset will pack dual-LED flash. Also, the Moto Z2 Play will come with a 3000mAh battery, a major downgrade from 3510mAh battery on Moto Z Play.
