Motorola Moto Z2 Play Clears TENAA Certification With a Smaller 2820mAh Battery in Tow

By May 20th, 2017 AT 4:18 PM

The Motorola Moto Z2 Play is one of the smartphones in the Moto Z2 lineup and will be the affordable Moto Mods supported smartphone. The device was spotted online numerous times, and it’s now time for regulatory site TENAA to reveal some key details about the upcoming Moto Z2 Play.


Previously, we’d reported that the Moto Z2 Play would house a smaller battery of 3000mAh, but the TENAA listing says the phone will have even lower 2820mAh battery. The Z2 Play with a 3000mAh battery unit is already a huge disappointment, and now this news will even disappoint many Motorola fans out there.

That said, the Moto Z2 Play will be a more like a downgrade to the Moto Z Play, whose prowess was the insane battery life. Indeed, to accompany that, Motorola will be powering the phone with a Snapdragon 630 SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The device will come with a thickness of 5.9mm, which is the primary reason for the battery trim down. Motorola may release a battery-centric Moto Mod to accompany the lost battery life. Nevertheless, Motorola should have gone with a bigger battery, same as the Moto Z Play.

Coming to the design aspect of the phone, it will resemble the 2016 Moto Z devices from the back and yes, the camera bump will come along with Z2 Play as well. However, the differences are spot on from the front as the fingerprint scanner is an oval-shaped one, same as the Moto G5 Plus and it features a dual front-facing flash, a decent addition though.

It will sport a single camera at the back, which is more or less the same 12MP camera sensor used in the Moto G5 Plus, and will be a decent addition as the Moto Z Play never impressed shutterbugs. The device would still cost around $400 (Rs. 26,000). Motorola did not reveal the launch date yet.

Chakri is a go-to guy for your next smartphone recommendation. Back in his engineering days, he used to play with smartphones by installing custom ROMs and that passion got him into the tech industry. He still goes nuts about a smartphone knocking his door for review. Currently managing everything at Telecom Talk, Chakri is trying to master PUBG Mobile in his free time.
