After launching Moto G4 series and Moto Z series of smartphones, Motorola has now launched its latest smartphone, Moto Z Play. Launched at IFA in Berlin, the phone comes just after a month of Moto Z’s launch in US.

The Moto Z Play comes with a 5.5-inch full HD Super AMOLED display with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Under the hood, it is powered by a Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, with 3GB of RAM. While the processor used is mid-range compared to Moto Z’s Snapdragon 820, but its more than enough to keep things smooth.

As of the storage, the phone has 32GB of internal storage. Just like other recently launched Moto smartphones, the phone houses a fingerprint scanner on the home button.

On the imaging front, the Moto Z Play features a 16 MP rear camera with laser auto focus and phase detection auto focus. There is also a 5 MP front facing camera.

The major highlight of the smartphone is its 3510mAh battery. This is the first time that a Motorola smartphone has such high capacity battery. As per the company, it can last up to 50 hours on single charge.

The smartphone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. Like other Moto devices, this too is water repellent.

Unlike Moto Z smartphone, which lacked audio jack, the Moto Z Play comes with a 3.5mm audio jack. It also supports full lineup of snap-on MotoMod accessories.

The Moto Z Play will be available in White/Gold and Black colours. It will be up for sale in the United States from this month, for a price of $400 on Verizon Wireless. Lenovo says that the unlocked international model will follow very soon after.
