Motorola's Moto Z2 Play has been confirmed by the company's official twitter handle to carry a 3000mAH non-removable battery. This will represent a significant downgrade from the Moto Z Play's 3510mAH one.

Motorola's Moto Z2 Play, the successor to their mid-range entry, the Z Play, has been confirmed to ship with a 3000mAH non-removable battery.

The device was spotted on TENAA yesterday with a 2820mAH battery but a tweet by Lenovo's official Twitter account has rubbished those claims, confirming that the device will carry an equally underwhelming 3000mAH one instead.

The device's other specifications are standard: A 5.5" FHD OLED display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal memory, front-facing fingerprint reader, and the entry-level 14nm Snapdragon 626. A worthy successor to the Z Play performance-wise but its battery is what will raise eyebrows. The Z Play, released in September last year housed a 3510mAH battery and the downgrade to a 3000mAH would mean a significant 14.5% decrease in battery capacity.

This choice may have been directed by the OEM's recent focus on form factor but it inevitably represents a step backward in a market that is finally beginning to cater to users' want of longer-lasting batteries. Questionable at best, and some would even call it ill-advised.

The Moto Z2 Play has been speculated to ship out in the Lunar Gray and Fine Gold shades, and is expected to be released sometime next month. Prices are unconfirmed at the moment but shouldn't be much higher than the Z Play's $400 tag.
