A few days back, Lenovo launched the Lenovo Moto Z Play at the IFA, 2016. It is the third model and the most affordable affordable in Moto’s Z series. As of now, the series also includes the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. The new smartphone has a host of new features like a new camera MotoMod. This new camera was developed in association with Hasselblad.
The innovative, semi-modular design is the reason Lenovo Moto Z shot to fame. So it came as no surprise that Lenovo has carried forward that modular design in the Z Play. On the other hand, Lenovo has made it more affordable than its predecessors. The Moto Z Play supports the entire portfolio of MotMod accessories. The icing on the cake is that it offers the most battery life (3510mAh) a Moto smartphone has ever offered. Unlike Moto Z and Moto Z Force, it comes with a headphone jack.
The Moto Z Play features a glass panel on both front and back fitted to the metal frame. It comes with a 5.5-inch 1080P AMOLED display and a fingerprint sensor.
