Moto Z2 Play is official with dual pixel camera with some returning Moto Mods


While Malaysia is enjoying the newly released Moto G5 Plus, Motorola has just revealed another smartphone called the Moto Z2 Play. Let’s check out what the tech-specs offer:

  • Snapdragon 626 processor (14nm chipset)
  • 3GB / 4GB RAM
  • 32GB / 64GB internal storage (expandable memory available via microSD card)
  • Measures 5.9mm thick, weighs 145 grams
  • 5.5-inch AMOLED display in 1080 x 1920 pixel, Full HD,  16:9 screen ratio
  • 12MP Dual Pixel rear camera (f/1.7) / 5MP front camera (dual LED flash, f/2.2)
  • Features water-repellent nano coating, USB-C fast charging,
  • Android 7.1.1
  • 3000 mAh battery


Design-wise, the Z2 Play looks too similar to its predecessor but at least it’s thinner and lighter. The new 14nm chipset size should also make the phone last longer. Currently, the record for the battery life stands at 30 hours which isn’t bad for a mid-ranger. Like the G5 Plus, the Z2 Play has dual pixel camera sensor as well, so this another affordable camera-centric phone to consider.

Of course, the main highlight of the Z2 Play is the new Moto Mods which you can slap add-ons to the device. The Moto Mods are still more or less the same from what we last saw in October last year it will have a JBL SoundBoost 2, Moto TurboPower Pack, Moto Style Shells with Wireless Charging, and a Moto Game Pad.

No official price tag was revealed, neither for the availability. But it could cost around RM1.7k since the Z Play was released with that price. Stay tuned for more Motorola news at
