Last month Verizon Wireless announced that they will soon start to sell the Moto Z2 Play. Keeping the given word, today the carrier has officially expanded its lineup by the Moto Z2 Play. Labeled with a reasonable price tag the phone offers a package of decent mid-range specs and an attractive modular design.
Announced a month ago the Moto Z2 Play is finally open for purchase from Verizon Wireless. The phablet offers decent parameters, beautiful design and enhanced functionality for just $17 per month.
Just like the Motorola’s previous few releases the Moto Z2 Play will surely be a Verizon’s only offering for a while before it hits the market in an unlocked version. Pre-orders on the phone are already opened. However, all early buyers won’t be able to put their hands on the handset before July 6th, which is when the phone is planned to start shipping.
As for pricing, you can buy the handset paying its full retail price of $408. But if for some reason you can’t pay the full amount upfront, then you may go the installment plan route. Choosing the latter option, you will be charged $17 each of the 24 months of the plan.
For such money you will get a massive Motorola phablet with a 5.5-inch screen panel delivering 1080p AMOLED viewing experience. The Moto Z2 Play comes driven by the Snapdragon 626 processor coupled with 3GB RAM, 32GB of built-in storage and Andreno 506 GPU in charge of graphics. Such processing parameters should deliver smooth Android 7.1.1 Nougat performance.
In addition to the latest variant of Android OS, the handset also offers a combination of decent camera parameters represented by a 12MP primary camera with phase-detect and laser-assisted autofocus and a 5MP front-facing snapper. Other than that the phone hides the 3.5mm headphone jack and a powerful 3,000 mAh battery with TurboPower charger.
Moving on to the design, the Moto Z2 Play comes dressed in an eye-catching slim aluminum body. However, except for being a good-looker the device also offers enhanced functionality delivered by Moto Mods.
Summing up, $408 price tag looks like a quite reasonable pricing as for such parameters. Especially when we consider the fact that the expected to debut in the summer unlocked model of the Moto Z2 Play is most likely to cost $100 more. As for Moto Mods they are sold separately, so prepare for extra costs.
