It's mostly known for having a larger battery and a headphone jack, though it's also thicker and heavier than the Moto Z. And like most of the other Moto Z-branded modular devices, it has a relatively affordable price tag. Neither of these devices come close to the original Moto Z's 5.19 millimeter thickness, however, Motorola is slowly inching its way back to this incredibly thin model. Would you like to see a more powerful Moto Z2 Play or one with better designs?

One of the biggest selling points of the Moto Z Play has been its battery life, so it's kind of unusual to hear that Motorola may be substantially slimming down the battery included with the Moto Z2 Play. We're about to break up, Moto Z Play line. This brings the phone's usage time down to 30 hours from 50 hours we had previously seen.

Other specs on the Moto Z2 Play definitely gets an upgrade.

The smartphone will apparently include a Snapdragon 626 processor with the clock speed of 2.2GHz.

Furthermore, the phone will have 4 GBs of RAM (compare to the Z Play which had 3 GBs). The internal storage has also been increased to 64GB from 32GB.

Regardless, the new software version ships with the build number NPNS25-137-24-1-9 and contains a number of fixes for specific vulnerabilities in the Android operating system while also resolving some security issues related to the particular software running on the Moto Z Play. The rear camera is said to come in the form of 12-megapixels paired with a f/1.7 lens, an interesting change from the previous 16-megapixel, f/2.0 camera, which means a lower resolution but improved image quality.

Nearly all of the Z2 Play's internals are set to see upgrades, albeit somewhat modest ones. These devices should be released throughout the rest of the year.
