Motorola’s upcoming Moto Z2 Play receives TENAA certification


The upcoming Moto Z2 Play from Motorola has received the green signal from Chinese telecommunications regulatory authority TENAA, which suggests the official announcement could be very close. If recent rumors are to be believed, Motorola will be unveiling the new Moto Z2 family on June 8th.

The TENAA listing for the Moto Z2 Play reveals the handset is going to sport a similar 5.5-inch AMOLED display as its predecessor, offering 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution. Powering the Moto Z2 Play will be an octa-core 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 chipset, a slight upgrade over the Snapdragon 625 chip powering the Moto Z Play. In the memory department, the smartphone is listed to include 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. In terms of imaging, the smartphone features a 12MP camera at the back and a 5MP selfie snapper on the front.

While the core specs of the Moto Z2 Play are definitely an improvement over its predecessor, the smartphone is going to be a downgrade over last year’s model in terms of battery life. In order to make the Moto Z2 Play really thin (5.99mm to be precise), Motorola has equipped the handset with a much smaller 2820mAh battery. Despite the fact that it packs slightly more efficient internals, we don’t expect it to deliver anywhere near as impressive battery stamina as the Moto Z Play.
