On the specifications front, the Motorola Moto Z Play features a 5.5-icnh Super AMOLED FHD Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display, Snapdragon 625 processor, Adreno 506 graphics, 3GB RAM, 32GB expandable internal storage coupled with a 3510mAh fast charging battery.

While the rear camera is equipped with a 16MP sensor, the front-facing snapper features a 5MP sensor. The phone is loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, which is upgradeable to Android 7.0 Nougat.
