Lenovo today launched the Moto Z2 Play in India. The pre-booking for the Moto Z2 Play can be done through all the leading stores and Flipkart from today, says Motorola. The pre-booking will remain open until the June 14, after which it will be available on sale.
Motorola also announced the four new Moto Mods it had introduced during the US launch of the Moto Z2 Play. Though these new mods will not be available right away in India, and the company said they will make these available in the next few months.
The Moto Z2 will only be available for the 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage variant in India, thus, leaving out the 3GB RAM and 32GB Internal Storage variant. The Indian variant of the Z2 Play will also be supporting dual-SIM cards rather than the single-SIM variant available internationally.
Pricing and Launch Offers
Motorola has priced the Moto Z2 Play at Rs. 27,999. Though, the customers who want to pre-book can go ahead and do so by paying Rs. 2,000, and paying the rest on delivery, or they can pay the rest of the amount over ten months with zero percent interest and no processing fee.
For the customers who pre-book will also be getting a Moto Armor pack which will include an aluminium case, back shell, selfie-stick, and protective film.
Also, all the customers will be receiving 100GB additional Reliance Jio 4G data offer for their Jio connection.
Moving on to the specifications, the Moto Z2 Play is powered by a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 626 processor paired with 4GB RAM/64GB internal storage. The storage can be further expanded up to 2T using microSD card. The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and comes with 4G LTE support.
The battery on the new Moto Z2 Play is downgraded presumably because of its thin design. The smartphone packs a 3000mAh battery from 3510mAh battery seen on the Moto Z Play. Motorola says that the phone will offer up to 30 hours of battery life between charges. Interestingly, the Moto Z2 Play features new voice controls which are said to provide instant information without having to touch or even unlock the phone. Besides, it also has a Night Display feature that is meant to reduce blue light emission.
As for the optics, the Moto Z2 Play sports a 12-megapixel rear camera with a 1.4-micron pixel sensor, with f/1.7 aperture, dual-LED flash, and laser dual autofocus lens. On the front, it has a 5-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture, wide-angle lens and a dual-LED flash. Connectivity options on the phone include- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C, 3.5mm audio jack, NFC, GPS/A-GS.
