Moto Z Play still in the works, alongside Pro Camera Mod and Adventure Mod

Vlad, 10 June, 2016

Surely by now you know that yesterday was a big day for Motorola. Lenovo's subsidiary announced the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, as well as the MotoMods that you can snap onto the devices to extend their functionality.

However, the third member of the Moto Z family was notably absent from that event. We're talking about the Moto Z Play, codenamed Vertex, which you can see in the image below, to the right of the other two Zs.

The Z Play aims to succeed the Moto X Play from last year in Motorola's portfolio, as a more midrange offering compared to the other two. It's been rumored alongside the Moto Z so far, so we assume its unveiling can't be far behind.

A usually reliable source of Moto-related leaks today assures us that the Moto Z Play is in fact still in the works and will see the light of day soon. It's been rumored to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera, a 5 MP selfie shooter, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 at the helm, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 3,600 mAh battery, and a thickness of just 5.9mm.

Lenovo is also preparing two additional MotoMods, which may become official alongside the Z Play. One is the Pro Camera Mod, pictured above (MotoMods have been codenamed Amps while in development, hence the use of that term in these leaked slides). This will bring with it a new camera with 10x optical zoom, f/3.4-5.6 aperture, and a proper Xenon flash as you can see. When attached to the Moto Z of your choice it will also make the phone look much more like a standalone digital camera.

Another accessory that is in the pipeline is the so called Adventure Mod, which will "guarantee" waterproofing for the Moto Z. Part of this is shown in the image above.

First of all those bezels make the phone look ugly AF, secondly when they said mid-ranger I didn't expect it'd be THAT mid-range lol awful phone all around. Dumbass Lenovo should give Moto back to Google and stick to making cheap Zuk's, at least back...

Not much point in making the 5.9mm thin moto flagship with only 2600mah battery when they could actually put a much bigger one in the same waistline. If the rumor is true of course. But I doubt it will be that thin. And the accessories for these phon...

lol at people being anal about bezels. get a life. on another note, those new mods look mighty appealing. if priced right, they should be able to capture the fancy of avid photographers, amateurs and perhaps some professionals. the adventure mo...
