Hot off of IFA 2016, Lenovo has announced, a variety of new products, but only 2 dealing with Moto. The Moto Z Play is the company’s new mid-range device — the third in the Z series — that looks to bridge the gap between affordable and high-end. With a mishmash of hardware specs, there’s still a lot to love here, especially considering the Z Play is able to take advantage of Lenovo’s quickly growing MotoMods lineup. Let’s take a look at the hardware specs:

Moto Z Play

  • 5.5-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display (517 nits max brightness)
  • Snapdragon 625 processor Adreno 506 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB storage w/micro SD card slot
  • 16MP camera f/2.0 (laser and PD AF)
  • 3,510mAh
  • Fingerprint reader water-repellent
  • 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
  • Compatible with existing MotoMods

Pricing of the unlocked model will retail for $450 when it goes on sale in October, while the Verizon version — dubbed the Moto Z Play Droid — will be out sometime in September for only $408. The Moto Z Play finds itself going head-to-head with other mid-to-high-ish-end devices like the Honor 8 and OnePlus 3. While each have their pluses and minuses, those who demand only the best possible battery life from their devices will want to stick with the Z Play.
