As per latest info, the Lenovo-owned smartphone manufacturer Motorola is getting ready to announce a new smartphone on June 1st. The device will be Moto Z2 Play. It will be keeping the similar modular design like the original Moto Z device. However, the company made a change in battery cell to make it as slim as possible. The device is in leaks and rumors from last few weeks.
The Moto Z2 Play model number is XT1710 and a lot of info regarding the device are known. The new mid-ranger Z2 Play will be featuring a 5.5-inches display with Full HD screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The front 5MP sensor is accompanied with a LED flashlight. The round shaped fingerprint scanner is placed on the front side.
The well-known tipster Roland Quandt reveals that Moto Z2 Play will be released in three color variants including White/Gold, Black/Grey, and White/Silver.

In terms of hardware, the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 626 SoC built on the 14nm process is powering the device with 3GB RAM. The rear primary sensor is of 12MP with the dual LED flashlight. It can record video of 4K quality. As OS, the device is pre-loaded with Android Nougat 7.1.1 straight out of the box with a pretty thin layer of custom UI over it.
The TENAA listing showcase Z2 Play has 2,820mAh battery but later on, Motorola official Twitter account confirms the battery cell is 3,000mAh. However, the predecessor was packed with 3,500mAh battery cell. It comes with USB Type-C port and Turbo Charging support. The reason behind ditching the larger battery cell is the extremely thin design which is just 6.6mm thick.
