Last year, Lenovo launched the Moto Z family of smartphones with Moto Mods, today the Chinese company launched the Moto Z² Play with a thinner, lighter design and faster performance, the second generation Moto Z² Play comes with the latest features you want in a smartphone, while still offering transformative experiences with Moto Mods.
The Moto Z² Play features an all-metal unibody design that not only looks great, but stands up to everyday wear and tear. It is packed with a 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD Super AMOLED display, up to 30 hours of battery life and a 2.2GHz octa-core processor to power through your day. You can also get up to eight hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging.
With the combination of laser autofocus and dual autofocus pixel technology on Moto Z² Play, you can shoot brighter, sharper photos, even in low light. The next generation laser autofocus has an expanded range of up to 5 meters, so you can focus on objects 3 times further in a virtually dark environment. And with the 5MP front camera and dual color corrected flash, you’ll look great in your selfies day or night.
Moto Z² Play offers great Moto Experiences too. The Night Display feature will automatically adjust your screen to warmer tones at night, reducing the blue light that can disrupt your sleep. And the new instant queries in Moto Voice will provide helpful info like weather or calendar updates, or automatically launch an application without having to touch or unlock your phone.
With a redesigned fingerprint reader, you can activate one button nav to quickly move through screens. Swipe left to go back, right to access recent apps, tap to go home, and use one long press to lock your phone. And with no buttons to clutter the screen, you get a much better view.
The Moto Z² Play can also instantly transform into exactly what you need, when you need it, when paired with Moto Mods:
The Moto GamePad Mod allows you to transform your Moto Z into a handheld gaming console with a simple snap. Use the dual control sticks, D-pad and four action buttons for a true gaming experience, no matter where you are. And with the 1035mAh built-in battery, you can outplay your friends.
JBL SoundBoost 2 Mod (2nd Generation)
