Moto E4 reportedly set to launch in India soon: Price, Availability and Specs
The Moto Z2 Play just arrived at my doorstep, and it came with a couple of new Moto Mods.
Now, the second generation Moto Z aka Moto Z2 has been spotted on the GFXBench benchmark database. No word on battery size and other features, but presumably given that it is part of the Moto Z lineup, it will also play nicely with the Moto Mods accessories. There had been a few rumours that the phone was due for launch on 27th June, yet we have not heard a peep from the company.
The Moto Z2 Play is the latest upper middle-ranger Motorola unleashed into the wild. The company has also launched a contest on Twitter as well, which gives 1 lucky victor a chance to win the upcoming smartphone. The design is a bit more modern than the previous model and fits the look of the Moto G5 Plus and Moto E4.
The system-on-chip (SoC) powering the newly uncovered Moto Z2 model was made by Qualcomm and features the Adreno 540 GPU, as well as eight cores based on the ARMv8 architecture clocked at a maximum frequency of 2.4GHz, heavily implying that the handset features the Snapdragon 835. The Tweet sounds, "Coming soon - #MotoE4 Appx Price Rs.8500 - Rs.8700". Furthermore, it also revealed that the upcoming Motorola phone will come with a front-mounted fingerprint scanner and a front-facing dual LED flash as well.
The smartphone will run on latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Connectivity options in the device include: 4G VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and NFC.
Moving on the bigger version, the Moto E4 Plus sports a huge 5.5-inch HD display a screen resolution of 1280×720 pixels and 2.5D cover glass coating on top. For storage expansion, Moto M users can slip microSD cards of up to 128GB capacity in the secondary SIM card slot.
