There are four new Moto Mods which were launched with the Moto Z2 Play and are expected to make their way to India as well. With this, Motorola is all set to grab a sizeable chunk of market share in the mid-premium price segment.
Many believed the Z2 Play would be replacing the Moto Z2 due to the Z2 Play's thinner and lighter size, cutting the battery from 3,510mAh to 3,000mAh.
The second-generation Moto Z2 Play is obviously much better than its predecessor, but you also need to remember that it has as higher price tag. Among them are the Moto Z2 Force and the aforementioned Moto Z2. Just like its predecessor, the Z2 Play has 16 magnetic pins at the back called Moto Mods connector to attach Mods. It weighs about 145 grams, and dimensions are 156.2 mm in length, 76.2mm in breadth and 5.99 mm in width. Motorola has made a decision to work on its imaging capabilities with the Moto Z2 Play and the smartphone will extend the support for MotoMods as well. While the price of these two smartphones are not known now, both these smartphones are expected to be priced in the same range. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor. This SoC will be coupled with 4GB of RAM on the Moto Z2. now 4GB of RAM might sound like a lot less when we have smartphones like the OnePlus 5 rumored to come with 8GB of RAM, but it should do the job. The Snapdragon 626 is the successor to very famous SD625 known for its power efficiency. No memory card slot here. It supports nano-SIM card.
The screen on Moto Z2 Play is fairly touch responsive and offers a good color reproduction. Plus, the former sports a better RAM as compared to the latter, which makes it a victor in this round.
Moto Z2 Play runs the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat and like previous Moto handsets, it also offers stock Android experience which is certainly one of the key selling points of Moto smartphones. So, once again we call this round as a tie. Some of the rumors that previously surfaced say that the Moto Z2 will have a dual camera setup at the rear along with dual-LED flash. It is yet to be gauged how the lower megapixel count functions on the Moto Z2 Play. This is where it gets real close.
Android Authority was once again responsible for an image leak purporting to be the Moto Z2. The device has also got NFC and the Z2 Play has the 3.5mm headset jack.
Moto Z2 Play does not pack the fastest CPU in town but has abundant RAM to take care of your multitasking needs. Moreover, OnePlus's Dash Charging technology still sits at the top with its fantastic results, while Moto's Turbocharging technology is not far behind.
