The Moto Z2 Play can now be purchased over at Vodafone UK. The device, which is bundled with a free JBL speaker Moto Mod, is now available in local carrier stores and on the company's website. Users may choose to bundle the handset with one of the eight carrier plans, with one plan offering unlimited calls and text, and 1GB of data for no upfront cost and a monthly payment of £28. Customers may also choose the plan that costs £40 per month, which offers 8GB of data, unlimited calls, and text. For £46 per month, subscribers may also get the plan with 32GB of data. Just in case the users are not happy with the handset, they may refund the purchase within 30 days.
The Moto Z2 Play is powered by the Snapdragon 626 chipset that is comprised of eight ARM Cortex A53 64-bit CPUs with a maximum frequency of 2.2GHz and the Adreno 506 GPU. The chipset also sports the Snapdragon X9 LTE modem, which is capable of achieving maximum download speeds of 300Mbps and top upload speeds of 150Mbps. It includes 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal flash storage that can be expanded by a microSD card. The smartphone has a single rear camera equipped with a 12-megapixel sensor and its f/1.7 aperture allows more light to enter the camera. The rear camera can capture videos with a resolution of 2160p and a frame rate of 30fps. Meanwhile, the front camera of the device has a 5-megapixel sensor.
The handset sports a 5.5-inch FullHD Super AMOLED display and a 3,000mAh battery to keep the device's lights on. The device supports Quick Charge 3.0 for faster top-ups of the device. The handset ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat pre-installed, although Lenovo will update the smartphone to Android 8.0 Oreo within the next few months. Like the other Moto Z devices, the Moto Z2 Play is compatible with the Moto Mods, accessories that directly attach to the POGO pins found at the back of the device. The TurboPower pack provides an additional 3,490mAh battery capacity to the handset, while the JBL SoundBoost 2 speaker aims to improve the audio experience of the device. The Moto 360 camera mod, on the other hand, produces images with a field of view of up to 150 degrees.
