Going by new reports, Lenovo has decided to go ahead with reduced battery life on Moto Z2 Play in a bid to cut down on the thickness of the handset.
In a separate news, the company has been tipped to be currently working on a Moto Android tablet for the first time in many years.
Going by the leaked details of Moto Z2 Play handset, the upcoming handset sports a 3000mAh battery, downgraded from its predecessor’s 3510mAh and results in a drop of maximum listed time usage from 50 hours to 30 hours.
While the exact thickness of the handset is still yet to be revealed, reports are claiming that the upcoming device’s thickness will be somewhat close to matching Moto Z’s thickness of 5.19mm.
The leak, also suggests that the handset will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat and feature the same 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) Super AMOLED display like its previous generation.
The handset is claimed to be powered by a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and Adreno 506 GPU. The Moto Z2 Play device is also tipped to offer 64GB of built-in storage.
As per optics, the Moto Z2 Play will bear the same 5-megapixel front-facing camera as its predecessor but the company is expected to reduce the resolution of the main camera to achieve increased imaging quality.
For that reason, the Moto Z2 Play is said to pack a 12-megapixel primary rear camera with f/1.7 aperture, featuring dual autofocus pixels, compared with the 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture on the Moto Z Play. The Moto Z2 Play is said to be available in Lunar Grey and Fine Gold colour options.
