Hello Overpriced Moto: Motorola launched the new Z2 play with Snapdragon 626 and new Moto Mods
Motorola announced a new addition in the Z family with Moto Z2 Play, which is the lower version of yet to be announced Moto Z2.
With a thinner, lighter design and faster performance, the second generation Moto Z Play could well be the best
More Moto mods have been added to the collection of already available mods.
The Moto ZTM family of smartphones with Moto ModsTM has allowed people to do things they never thought were possible with a phone. From projecting a 70” screen wherever you are to turn your phone into a camera with 10x optical zoom, the Moto Mods platform offers unprecedented mobile innovation. With the next generation of products, you can experience new ways to transform your smartphone.
With a powerful combination of style and strength, Moto Z2 Play features an all-metal unibody design that not only looks great but stands up to everyday wear and tear. The 13.97cm (5.5”) Full HD Super AMOLED display offers razor sharp details, no matter what you’re looking at. You get an all-day battery and a 2.2GHz octa-core processor to power through your day – and well into the next. With up to 7 hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging.
You’ll take brighter, sharper photos, even in low-light, with the combination of laser autofocus and dual autofocus pixel on Moto Z2 Play. 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 colour corrected flash, you’ll look great in your selfies day or night.
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.
