Lenovo, company that currently owns the Motorola brand, has finally announced that they were launching the new Moto Z2 Play. The announcement/confirmation was made public via Twitter, in a reply to a user.

The phone was confirmed to be using a non-removable 3,000mAh battery. But even though they have made the effort to explain their choice on the non-replaceable battery, the earlier had a larger battery, and the actual real-world usage is what needs to be done to see if the battery is enough.

Tech blogs speculate that Z2 Play is thinner than its predecessor, and that it’s powered by Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The thinness could be the answer as to why they had to go with the thinner battery, less powerful battery.

Z2 Play is also rumored to have more storage than the previous model — 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage space, vs Z Play’s 3 GB and 32 GB storage space.

The rear camera is also getting an upgrade, arguably: it will have fewer pixels, but greater image quality, thanks to the dual-pixel autofocus technology introduced by Samsung last year.
