Say Hello to New Possibilities with Moto Z² Play and Moto Mods

Since our launch last year, the Moto Z™ family of smartphones with Moto Mods™ has allowed people to do things they never thought were possible with a phone. From projecting a 70” screen wherever you are to turning your phone into a camera with 10x optical zoom, the Moto Mods platform offers unprecedented mobile innovation.

The Moto Mods ecosystem continues to grow. We’re adding more Moto Mods into the mix – and we’re committed to continuing this. With the next generation of products, you can experience new ways to transform your smartphone.

Moto Z² Play: Thinner, Lighter & Faster
With a thinner, lighter design and faster performance, the second generation Moto Z² Play delivers on the features you care about, while still offering transformative experiences with Moto Mods.

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, no matter what you’re looking at. You get up to 30 hours of battery life and a 2.2GHz octa-core processor to power through your day – and well into the next.* Forget to charge your Moto Z² Play overnight? No problem – get up to eight hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging.**

You’ll 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 meters, so you can focus on objects 3 times further in a virtually dark environment. And with the 5MP front camera and dual color corrected flash, you’ll look great in your selfies day or night.

Moto Z² Play offers great Moto Experiences too. The Night Display feature will automatically adjust your screen to warmer tones at night, reducing the blue light that can disrupt your sleep. And the new instant queries in Moto Voice will provide helpful info like weather or calendar updates, or automatically launch an application without having to touch or unlock your phone. With a redesigned fingerprint reader, you can activate one button nav to quickly move through screens. Swipe left to go back, right to access recent apps, tap to go home, and use one long press to lock your phone. And with no buttons to clutter the screen, you get a much better view.

While this precision crafted smartphone is impressive on its own, Moto Z² Play can also instantly transform into exactly what you need, when you need it, when paired with Moto Mods.

Moto Mods: Go Beyond Your Smartphone 
Last year, we introduced Moto Mods, to add transformative new functions that aren’t available on any other smartphones. Now, we’re giving you even more possibilities in mobile modularity.

Change the Way You Game
Finally take control of your mobile gaming with the Moto GamePad. This new Moto Mod allows you to transform your Moto Z into a handheld gaming console with a simple snap. Use the dual control sticks, D-pad and four action buttons for a true gaming experience, no matter where you are. And with the 1035mAh built-in battery, you can outplay your friends.

High Quality Sound in a Snap
The first generation JBL SoundBoost helped you get the party started, and with the upgraded JBL SoundBoost 2, the party keeps on rockin’. The new SoundBoost 2 gives you 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 just the way you like it. Whether you’re listening to music, watching videos or even cheering on your favorite team, the built-in kickstand gives you a truly immersive audio-visual experience. All in a snap, with no pairing required.

Get the fast charging of TurboPower, anywhere
Choose how you charge with the Moto TurboPower Pack. Instantly add an extra day of battery life when maximizing power is a priority. Or recharge your phone fast (up to 15W) on the go when you need to power up. And if your power pack runs out of juice, plug it in and power up to 50% of capacity in just 20 minutes.

Power up in Style
Cut the cord – and the clutter – with a Moto Style Shell with Wireless Charging. Add fast wireless charging (up to 10W) to your Moto Z in an ultra-sleek, stylish design. It’s available in a variety of finishes so your phone always fits your style.
