First unveiled earlier this month, the Moto Z2 Play is thinner and more powerful than its predecessor. But it also has a smaller battery.
Verizon is selling the phone for $408 outright or in 24 monthly payments of $17.
The smartphone features a 5.5 inch, full HD AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor, and an entry-level model features 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, although Motorola also plans to offer a 4GB/64GB model.
Other features include a USB Type-C port, NFC support, a fingerprint sensor built into the home button, 802.11n WiFi, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Motorola says you should get up to 30 hours of battery life from the phone’s 3,000 mAh battery, which would seem pretty good if the first-gen Moto Z Play hadn’t features a 3,510 mAh battery for up to 50 hours of run time.
As part of the Moto Z lineup, the new phone supports Moto Mod accessories that connect to back of the device. As part of a launch promotion, customers who order the phone will get a JBL SoundBoost 2 speaker mod, which would otherwise sell for $80.
Other new Moto Mods include external batteries, wireless charging shells, decorative back covers, and an upcoming GamePad which brings physical gaming controllers to the phone.
