Moto Z2 Play display, processor and others details emerge

Motorola’s upcoming line up of smartphones was allegedly leaked recently. Of the rumoured smartphones, the company is said to be launching, Moto Z2 Play is said to be one of the most-talked about. The smartphone, which is successor to the current Moto Z Play smartphone, is once again in the news as more details about the device surface online.
According to a report in Venturebeat, the upcoming Moto Z2 Play smartphone will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and be much thinner than the Moto Z . The company is reported to have ‘compromised’ on the battery front to make the device slim. It is said to come with 3000mAh battery capacity. For reference, the Moto Z Play sports 3510mAh battery.
The report adds further that while the Z Play is almost 7mm thick and weighs 165 grams, the upcoming Z2 Play will be a millimetre thin and 20 grams lighter. In the specifications department, the smartphone is expected to see upgrades in most of the places except for the processor.
The device could sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor, which is a minor upgrade over the Z Play’s Snapdragon 625. In addition, the 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) resolution could stay.
A major change is said to be seen in the inbuilt storage department. The smartphone may now come with 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage, as compared to Moto Z Play’s 3GB+32GB combination.
As for the camera, the report suggests Motorola to keep the 5MP front-facing camera from the Z Play but make some changes in the rear camera. The Z2 Play’s rear camera could see a dip in the megapixel count but an upgrade in image quality. The Z Play’s 16MP camera with f/2.0 aperture can be replaced with a 12MP f/1.7 camera with dual -pixel autofocus. For those unaware, the dual-pixel autofocus smartphone camera tech was introduced by Samsung in its Galaxy S7 smartphones last year.
The Moto Z2 Play is said to come in Lunar Gray and Fine Gold colour variants and will be one of the three devices in the refreshed Z2 lineup. The other two handsets are Moto Z2 and Moto Z2 Force.
