Moto Z2 Play surfaces online

The alleged render of the cheapest upcoming Moto Z2 phone has made it online, but there are no specs to talk about at this stage. However, the design looks similar to that of the original Z Play, so the changes below the hood might not be radical, either.

We already heard quite a few rumors about this year's refresh of the popular Moto Z family, but the Moto Z2 Play now surfaces in its first leaked images. Obviously, Lenovo did not confirm anything yet, but since the alleged Moto Z2 Play looks similar to the original Moto Z Play, it is highly probable that this is the real thing.

The picture was provided to TechBuffalo "by a trusted source" and reveals a slightly redesigned home button, now looking like the one recently introduced with the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Its purpose is to act as a home button and fingerprint reader with swiping gestures support.

Since there is no word on the specs of the upcoming Z2 Play, we can safely assume that a generous battery is still in the cards. Last year's model had a full HD display, so we cannot imagine a change in this department considering the handset's price range. The original Z Play used a Snapdragon 625 processor, 3 GB RAM, and 32 GB internal storage. 

These being said, we should expect more details to arise in the coming weeks. The Moto Z Play made its debut in August, but the Z2 Play might arrive in June - at least if the launch event takes place on the date displayed on the screen of the unit shown in the leaked image.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
