If there was any doubt that the Moto Z line was getting ready to debut its next device I think it’s time to put those doubts aside. Today we’re getting our first good look at the Moto Z2 Play, just like the earlier leak of the Moto Z2 it looks as if Motorola/Lenovo is making good on their promise to continue support for their popular Moto Mods launched with the Moto Z.
Just as they are on the Moto Z2, the pogo pins for the software connection of Moto Mods (of which there will be quite a few soon thanks to the “Transform the Smartphone Challenge” competition) are present again.
There’s not a lot to distill from this image, however, you’ll notice on the rear of the device a headphone jack cutout down the bottom. It seems Lenovo has understood the mistake of removing the standard port and has acted in consumer interest and added it back. The fingerprint sensor also seems to be changed to the same as it is on the Moto Z2 from the first iteration of these phones.
The other little tidbit is the date and time on the screen, while this may just be a random data and time, Thursday the 8 of June may just be the launch date of the device? We have seen the date of announcement leaked like this in the past. With such good quality images already leaking it’s safe to assume there will be more leaks to follow.
