Lenovo has unveiled its new Moto Z Play and a new Moto Mod called Hasselblad True Zoom that allows RAW shooting mode and 10x optical zoom. The new Moto Mod has Xenon flash as well which is far better than the normal LED flash lights of smartphones.
This is the fourth Moto Mod accessory for new Moto phones. Earlier, Lenovo owned Motorola had launched JBL SoundBoost speaker, Insta-Share Projector and battery packs from Incipio which can be attached with select Moto smartphones to boost their capabilities.
As far as Moto Z Play is concerned, the new Moto smartphone comes with an aluminum frame and glass back. Moto Z Play promises up to 50 hours of battery life and is said to be Moto’s longest-lasting battery ever. Getting on to the fast charging bandwagon, it has TurboPower charging feature that claims to charge it up to 9 hours in just 15 minutes.
Moto Z Play also offers a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor, 5.5 inch 1080p HD Super AMOLED display and 3GB RAM of memory (RAM). It has a 16MP laser autofocus camera, and has a wide-angle, front-facing camera with LED flash.
Moto Z Play will be available globally beginning in September; in Europe for 499â‚¬ (approximately Rs 37279) while in the US it will be available on Motorola.com and Verizon as Moto Z Play Droid Edition for $408 ($17/month) on September 8.
