Moto Z series instantly shot into the limelight, thanks to its innovative semi-modular design. Lenovo has carried forward that modular design in the Z Play and has made it more affordable than its flagship sibling. It supports the entire portfolio of MotMod accessories. Apart from that, it offers most capacious battery (3510mAh) a Moto smartphone has ever offered. Unlike Moto Z and Moto Z Force, it comes with a headphone jack.
The Moto Z Play features a glass panel on both front and back fitted to the metal frame. It comes with a 5.5-inch 1080P AMOLED display and a fingerprint sensor. Under the hood, it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 which has eight Cortex – A53 cores all of them clocked at 2GHz.
The phone comes with 3GB RAM and Adreno 530 GPU to handle multitasking and graphic intensive work respectively. It runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and there hasn’t been any official announcement regarding upgrade to the recently launched Android 7.0 Nougat.
Initially, only a carrier locked version of Moto Z Play will go on sale in US from September 8 for $408 (27,319 INR). Lenovo is scheduled to launch it in Europe later this month. In Europe, it will be priced at €499 (37,252 INR).
