Press render of the Moto Z2 Play surfaced last month, and the specifications of the smartphone were revealed by @evleaks earlier this month. Now the smartphone has been certified by China’s TENAA confirming the specifications and also reveals the model number as XT1710. Lenovo even confirmed that the smartphone will have a 3000mAh battery in tweet to a user, compared to 3510mAh battery on the Moto Z Play.

It is much thinner than the predecessor at just 5.99mm at its thinnest point and will also be lighter at 145 grams. Earlier rumors point to Octa-Core Snapdragon 626 Mobile Platform and a large fingerprint sensor below the display. This is expected to offer easy navigation using One button nav feature, similar to latest Moto G5 series of phones.
