Motorola’s Moto Z2 Play Trade-Off Battery Life For Slimmer Body
Details about the upcoming Motorola Moto Z2 Play, successor to last year’s Moto Z Play has ‘come to light’ thanks to Venture Beat. One of the talking point of the new device is the decrease in battery capacity from 3,510mAh on the Z Play to 3,000mAh possibly with Turbo Charging, i.e the total battery life will go down from about 50 hours of usage to 30 hours.
As a result of this, the Moto Z2 Play will sport a slimmer body at 5.99mm and weigh less at 145 grams compared to 6.99mm and 165 grams on the Moto Z Play. The device will largely see modest upgrade in specs, however, the main camera has its resolution decreased from 16MP with f/2.0 aperture to 12MP with f/1.7 aperture and Dual AutoFocus pixels.
It will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 clocked at 2.2GHz with Adreno 506 and comes pre-installed with Android 7.1.1 Nougat OS. Both the memory and storage has been boosted to 4GB and 64GB respectively from 3GB and 32GB. The 5.5-inch 1080P Full HD Super AMOLED display and front 5MP selfie camera will remain the same.
Expected in Fine Gold and Lunar Gray colour options, Lenovo is expected to release the Moto Z2 Play alongside the Moto Z2 and Moto Z2 Force.
