Lenovo seems to be almost ready with the successor of Moto Z Play, the Moto Z2 Play. While most of the details are from leaks and other sources, there is an official confirmation about one of the specs directly on the company’s twitter handle.

Allaying the speculations on the battery to be fitted on the new phone the twitter message confirmed that the phone will sport a 3000mAh battery. This is interesting because the Moto Z Play had a bigger 3510mAh battery. It is learnt that the move is directly linked to the company wanting to reduce the overall thickness of the phone. While the previous phone had a thickness above seven millimeters, the Moto Z2 Plus might be just six millimeters thick. For the record, this 300mAh battery would be a non-removable one.

The Moto Z2 Play will possess a 5.5-inch display, which will be a capacitive touchscreen with AMOLED display, offering 1920x1080pixles resolution and a pixel density of a respectable 401ppi. As if these specs do not take this new phone to the higher league, the main processor is expected to be octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 with the Adreno 506 GPU riding over it. The clocking speed of 2.2GHz is also reasonable.

The Moto Z2 Plus will have 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. A dedicated microSD slot can take this storage to 256GB.

The phone does not lag behind in the imaging department either, with a 12MP camera in the dear accompanied by a dual LED flash and the front 5MP sensor also having the luxury of a dual LED flash. The 3000mAh battery can be charged through the fast charging facility. The Moto Z2 Plus has a fingerprint sensor in the front.

The market is still waiting for official confirmation on the date of the launch of the new phone as well as the pricing. The phone is likely to be made available in two distinct colors, fine gold and lunar grey.

Given the fact that the phone may be priced in the similar range as its predecessor, the specifications of the phone don’t live up to competition in the Rs 25,000 price range. If anything, the performance may be a saving grace.
