6th July 2017— Lenovo, through its subsidiary, Motorola Mobility, has today announced that its latest mobile device, the Moto Z² Play, will be available to pre-order in the UK from 6th July 2017. With a thinner, lighter design and faster performance, the second-generation Moto Z² Play delivers incredible features, and enables unlimited possibilities with all new Moto Mods.
As the Moto Z family continues to grow with the Moto Mods ecosystem, Motorola is allowing users to do things they never thought possible. The Moto Z² Play will be available to pre-order from 6th July at Motorola.co.uk, along with a host of new Moto Mods that will transform the smartphone, including: JBL SoundBoost 2, Moto TurboPower Pack, and the Moto Style Shell with Wireless Charging.
Moto Z² Play: thinner, lighter & faster
With a powerful combination of style and strength, Moto Z² Play features an all-metal unibody design that not only looks great, but stands up to everyday wear and tear. The 5.5” Full HD Super AMOLED display offers razor sharp details, and with up to 30 hours of battery life and a 2.2GHz octa-core processor, you’ll power through your day – and well into the next¹. Forget to charge your Moto Z² Play overnight? No problem – get up to eight hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging.²
Take brighter, sharper photos, even in low light, with the combination of laser autofocus and dual autofocus pixel technology on Moto Z² Play. The next generation laser autofocus has an expanded range of up to 5 metres, so you can focus on objects three times further in a virtually dark environment. And with the 5MP front camera and dual colour corrected flash, selfies look great, day or night.
New Moto Experiences offer an even more unique and meaningful software experience, including the Night Display feature, which automatically adjust your screen to warmer tones at night, reducing the blue light that can disrupt your sleep. Instant queries in Moto Voice will provide helpful info like weather or calendar updates, and a redesigned fingerprint reader.
Unlimited possibilities with Moto Mods
Last year, Motorola introduced Moto Mods, to add transformative new functions that aren’t available on any other smartphones. Now, users have even more possibilities in mobile modularity.
The first generation JBL SoundBoost helped get the party started, and with the upgraded JBL SoundBoost 2, the party can keep going for even longer. The new SoundBoost 2 gives a full party’s worth of music with 10 hours of playtime built right in. And with its water-repellant coating, a little spill or splash won’t stop the music either. It comes in red, blue or black, features a more premium design with fabric and improved contours for a better feel in your hand.
There’s also a new app available, called My JBL SoundBoost 2, so that you can adjust the sound to personal preferences. Whether you’re listening to music, watching videos or even cheering on your favourite team, the built-in kickstand gives you a truly immersive audio-visual experience. All in a snap, with no pairing required.
Instantly add an extra day of battery life with the Moto TurboPower Pack, or just recharge on the go when you need to power up – when the power pack runs out of juice, just plug it in and power up to 50% in just 20 minutes.
Cut the cord – and the clutter – with a Moto Style Shell with Wireless Charging. Add fast wireless charging (up to 10W) to the Moto Z family with an ultra-sleek, stylish design.
