Moto Z2 Play will be thinner with a smaller battery

Perhaps the most notable change with the Moto Z2 Play involves its battery. The natural substitute of Moto Z Play from where we began to find out its details and characteristics before the more than probable and imminent official presentation of the mobile. This size reduction also decreases usage time from 50 to 30 hours. Since it comes with a smaller battery, the Moto Z2 Play should be 1mm thinner and about 20 grams lighter than the old Z Play, but that's hardly a consolation, is it?

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

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.

Leaving these aside, the Moto Z2 Play is speculated to arrive with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space while its predecessor has 3GB RAM and 32GB storage space.

We wonder how well will a successor to a battery phone augur with its power capacity reduced only to enhance its slim form and design. Battery woes aside, the Moto Z2 Play (pictured below) will feature 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory - a nice bump from the 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory of the old model.

This may not go down well with the fans of the Z Play who were planning an upgrade this year. The Z2's 5-megapixel front-facing camera will also be the same, however, the main camera will be replaced by a 12-megapixel, f/1.7 component featuring dual auto-focus pixels.

The Z2 Play's Super AMOLED display, 5.5-inch diagonal and 1080x1920 resolution will remain the same as the Z Play. The device is one of three handsets in the refreshed Moto Z2 lineup.
