    CRAP that looks nice. So far I think it's between this and the Axon 8 for my next phone!

    Another look at the rear of the new Moto Z2 Play (next to 1st gen Z and Z Play). As expected, all mods will fit on the new models too.

    Moto E4, E4 Plus, and Z2 Play show up in leaked renders | Android Central

    The back of the Moto Z2 Play — shown next to last year's Moto Z and Z Play — reveals a trim around the border that's similar to what we've seen with the moto G5. The render ties up with previous leaks, and while there isn't much to go on when it comes to specs, the latest rumors hint at a Snapdragon 626 chipset and a 3000mAh battery. We should be hearing more on the device in the coming weeks.

    And here's the Moto Z Play again in Lunar Gray but this time including the front (replaced screen content to protect source)

    anyone one else disappointed about the moto z2 play battery and build?
    i hate that they are making it slimmer and making it a metal body with no glass and smaller battery..

    i really liked the features that it had.

    Downsizing the battery?! Nooooo...

    My upgrading choices are between the Z2 Play, the HTC U11, and the Axon 8 (once we know more about that). So far, looks like HTC has me.

    Nope, not at all. It has not even been officially announced yet, so everything "leaking" at this point is just rumors and speculation.

    You're right about it being speculation at this point. Hopefully the rumours are proven wrong!

    The leaks are mounting though and coming​ from increasingly credible seeming sources. Additionally, Moto has a clear incentive to reduce the battery size. For one, people seem to lap up thin phones. And secondly, it makes their battery Moto mods more attractive. If the new Moto branded power pack mod is as thin as the reports suggest (and the phones price stays the same) I suppose I won't mind. If the stock battery is 3000ish and the mod ads another 1000, that's PLENTY of juice.

    I definitely understand what you're saying. If Motorola wants to push their modular market, then making the battery a bit smaller would be a wise move - and, of course, the slimmer phone design would work in conjunction with that. I wouldn't mind having a thicker phone if the battery was bigger! But I get that a lot of users are trending towards slimmer phones.

    I use the Z Play as my daily driver and love it. I also have the JBL mod that I got for <$50 , which I love. By itself I have zero issues with the phones dimensions. But add a mod and it does get chunky. The new Moto branded battery mod due to drop this summer is supposed to be very thin tho, so it should be a good one to use for us 1st gen Z Play users.

    If it's from Lenovo's official Twitter page, and doesn't subsequently get removed for error, that ups the confidence interval substantially.

    That's great to hear about the mod! I'm excited for Moto.

    I think it's pretty disappointing. I really loved the z play last year. What a surprise phone for me. Didn't think I was interested in the mods, but since I liked the phone so much I bought a few of the style ones and the jbl. Literal two day battery life, so didn't ever really have to worry. It was great for vacations. Intended to buy this years too but even if optimized a battery that size won't last two days and I don't want a battery mod. Once you buy that the phone ends up costing more than what it is worth imo. If the other rumored specs are true, it doesn't sound like there's much incentive not to just got find an old zplay and get that instead.

    Looks like they killed the Z Play with mods, stole the name and gave it to the standard Z successor. Then said "hey! Why don't we make a Z play without the mods, that will be greaaaaaat!" Hence we get the rebirth of the Moto X.

    I'm beyond pissed I bought two battery mods (yes I use them on the play all the time, size is not an issue) and a speaker mod.

    Why can't the Moto X4 have mods too!?!

    That 660 processor in the X4 better be wayyy more efficiant than the 625 in the Z play... I still needed mods even with the big battery to get 2 day battery life, now it's more like two mods after half a year of battery ware and tear.

    Per Jerry on recent AC podcasts, the 660 is sort of a more efficient 820. Don't expect the 660 to be a battery god.

    Also, the Moto Z2 Play is just 5,99mm thick. But 8,49mm if you include the camera bump. The MASSIVE camera bump.

    This also states, that Moto is going to have a Dual Pixel / Laser autofocus combo in the new model (Z Play had PDAF/laser)
