Motorola’s smartphone launch roadmap for 2017 has already been revealed by the notable gadget leakster Evan Blass. And while the company is gearing up to unwrap these smartphones, leaks have outed a few major details of yet-to-be-announced devices.
A fresh leak has revealed the specifications of the new handset from Moto Z lineup, the Moto Z2 Play. The Moto Z2 Play recently reported to have received certification from the Chinese telecommunication authority, TENAA. And now the device has been spotted on the GFXBench performance benchmark site. The result on the GFXBench reiterates with the specifications revealed by TENAA listing.
As per the GFXBench results, first spotted by MobileXpose the Moto Z2 Play is seen featuring a 5.5-inch full HD (1080×1920 resolution) display. The device will be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor paired with Adreno 506GPU. The phone will carry 4GB of RAM and run Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
For imaging, the Moto Z2 Play will sport a 12-megapixel sensor and it will be capable of recording 4K videos. Its predecessor, the Moto Z Play, however, packs a 16-megapixel sensor. At front, the Moto Z2 Play is seen featuring a 5-megapixel camera. The phone is tipped to come with 64GB onboard storage which will be further expandable via microSD card.
Lenovo, the parent company for Motorola earlier this week in a tweet confirmed that the Moto Z2 Play will have a 3000mAh battery inside. While the Moto Z Play comes with a 3510mAh battery, this significant downgrade could possibly mean that new Moto Z smartphone will have a slimmer design compared to its predecessor. Although Motorola has not shared any official information regarding the launch date of the new Moto Z2 Play, rumours speculate that the device could be announced on June 8.
