Motorola was expected to announce their new Moto Z smartphone at the IFA 2016 within a few days. The smartphone is expected to be called as the Moto Z Play, and it is believed to be launched as a cheaper handset.
The listing in the GFXBench suggests that the handset will be powered by a 2GHz Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor with Adreno 506 GPU. The standard Moto Z and Moto Z Force are powered by the Snapdragon 820.
The listing also shows that the handset will have a 5.5 inch Full HD display, 3Gb RAM and 32GB internal storage. This smartphone may also have a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. This device will be running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
A few days ago, some images of Moto Z Play were leaked, showing that the design will be similar to the other Moto Z smartphones. The protruding rear camera module and the magnetic connectors for the Moto Mods are also seen in the leaked images of Moto Z Play. But the Moto Z Play is expected to come with a rear glass panel unlike the metal back used on the other two Moto Z handsets.
A user posted image of a promotional poster of Moto Z play in a Chinese website Weibo. The image suggests that the Moto Z Play might support Moto Mod modules just like the other phones in the Moto Z series, and feature fast charging that delivers 10 hours of battery life with 15 minutes of charge.
