The mid-range 5.5-inch Moto Z Play will be thicker than the Moto Z with a larger battery and the same rear pins for MotoMod compatibility.

It was only a matter of time before the mainstream versions of the flagship Moto Z family leaked online. With the Moto X series out of the spotlight for now, the mid-size Moto Z Play will purportedly fill the spot according to TENAA documents. Perhaps more notably, this model will carry the same rear panel for compatibility with existing MotoMods and may even ship with a 3.5 mm audio jack unlike on its pricier siblings.

Otherwise, core specifications are your typical mainstream smartphone:

  • 5.5-inch FHD AMOLED display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 64 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD support
  • 16 MP rear + 5 MP front cameras
  • 7 mm thickness
  • 3510 mAh battery

Another major difference between the Moto Z Play and the Moto Z is its larger battery capacity of 3510 mAh compared to just 2600 mAh on the flagship model. When combined with its lower resolution FHD panel, runtimes are expected to be noticeably longer on the Moto Z Play.

Color options will likely come in the usual Black and White with a rumored starting price of 300 Euros. A launch date is currently unknown but will likely be later this year as TENAA certifications are usually late in the development process. The Moto Z Play was spotted early last month through the Zauba tracking service.
