Here we are again, with a Moto Z2 Play leak, this time with a slimmer body, it seems and extra details about its battery behaviour. We previously saw renders of the device , but one more can’t hurt.
It would appear that the upcoming handset is going to run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat and its slim waistline will seriously decrease the capacity of the battery. Thus, it goes from 3510 mAh to 3000 mAh and this means that the maximum listed usage time goes from 50 hours to 30 hours. The result is a handset that’s 7 mm thick, weighs 165 grams and it should be more of a midrange offering than the standard Z2.
The Moto Z Play had a stellar battery, so good that it even beat some battery phones. We are bound to get some upgrades still, not just the battery downgrade. The Snapdragon 625 CPU is replaced with a Snapdragon 626, while the 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage go to 4 GB and 64 GB respectively. The AMOLED screen is said to stay the same 5.5 inch Full HD panel here.
Finally, on the camera front we’ve got a 12 MP shooter, which is supposed to be improved with dual pixel tech, in spite of the predecessor having a 16 MP cam. There’s also a 5 MP, that’s kept from the predecessor.
