Moto Z2 Play


There’s now another Moto on the market for you to say 'hello' to: introducing the Moto Z2 Play.

Moto is promising its next-gen modular smartphone will be ‘thinner, lighter and faster’ than last year’s Moto Z and Moto Z Play. Along with an updated Play experience, Moto is also launching four new Moto Mods: designed to boost battery life, and transform your device from mere smartphone to portable sound system, or handheld game console.

The Moto Z2 Play


The Moto Z2 Play features a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, 32GB of storage (with 64GB available in some markets), a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 Processor, and 3GB of RAM. You’ll get Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box, plus a 3000mAh battery with Quick Charge support – offering eight hours of battery life in just a 15-minute charge.

Up front, there’s a fingerprint sensor which also supports one-gesture swiping and multi-tasking, plus simple one-touch navigation. You can now use Moto Voice to receive ‘instant queries’ such as calendar and weather updates, or to launch apps hands-free, and the new Night Display mode adjusts your screen after dark, cutting down on sleep-disrupting blue tones.

If top-notch selfies are a priority, the 5-megapixel front camera offers a dual colour corrected flash, and you’ll get a 12-megapixel rear shooter with laser and dual autofocus for perfect low-light snaps. You’re also still be able to attach the Hasselblad True Zoom Camera to your Z2 Play for even better shots, which brings us to Moto’s next announcement: more Mods.

Moto Mods


Like the Moto Z and Moto Z Play, the Z2 Play is a modular smartphone, meaning you can snap-on extra accessories to enhance your device’s capabilities. Joining the Hasselblad camera, plus the Instashare Projector and last year’s JBL Soundboost speaker, are four all-new Moto Mods.

Moto Gamepad

Clip on the Gamepad and turn your Moto Z2  into a take-anywhere gaming machine, with dual control sticks, four action buttons, and a built-in 1035mAh battery.

Price: $79.99 USD

JBL Soundboost 2

This year’s update to the JBL Soundboost speaker gives you ten hours of play time on a single charge, features water-repellent coating, and can pair with the JBL Soundboost 2 app for easy sound adjustment.

Price: $79.99 USD

Moto TurboPower Pack

The snap-on TurboPower Pack will give you double the battery life when you’re away from your charger, and offers ultra-fast recharges on the go: up to 50% of battery capacity in as little as 20 minutes.

Price: $79.99 USD

Moto Style Shell

Another charging add-on, the Style Shell combines design with fast wireless Qi charging, in a variety of finishes.

Price: $39.99 USD

There’s no word on when the Moto Z2 Play and new Moto Mods will hit Australian shores, but the product range will be available in the US sometime mid-year with a $499 USD price tag.
