Motorola has vastly expanded its product portfolio this year, and more smartphones are coming from the brand in coming months.

Priced at Rs. 24,999, the device was launched with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update and picked up Android 7.0 Nougat update earlier this year. The Moto Z Play will receive the Android O update as well, sometime later this year. The new update arrives with the software version of NPNS26.118-22 and will reach your device in coming days because Motorola is rolling it in a phased manner.

There are many new features added to the device with the latest update. The Android 7.1.1 Nougat update brings app shortcuts to the device, meaning you can access app shortcuts right from the home screen itself by tapping and holding a particular app. Motorola is loading the Google Duo app as a system application with this update.

Furthermore, users can now send GIFs directly from the keyboard itself, and the new emojis are added to the Moto Z Play as well. Having said that, the update also brings latest July 2017 security patch fixes to Moto Z Play.

As said earlier, Motorola Moto Z Play was released with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out-of-the-box and received the Android 7.0 Nougat earlier this year. The Android 7.0 Nougat added features such as multi-window mode, quick reply, quick app switcher, advanced Doze mode, etc.

Speaking about the features, the Moto Z Play sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top. It’s powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There’s microSD card slot for storage expansion. The smartphone has a 3510mAh battery and is known for the insane battery life it offers.

The Moto Z Play rocks a 16MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, and PDAF. There’s a 5MP front-facing camera with an LED flash support as well. The smartphone’ successor Moto Z2 Play was launched in India in June 2017 for Rs. 27,999.

Make sure to clear cache partition (by fastboot) or else factory reset your phone after any system update for optimum performance.
