Motorola commenced the launch of the Moto Z2 Play smartphone earlier today. It is part of the Moto Z series, that's got a new modularity feature known as Moto Mods. An improvement over last year's Moto Z Play, the new smartphone sports a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 SoC, but more importantly promises a long battery life that can last all day.

The innovative Moto Mods allow for external components to be connected to the phone, reinventing how we interact with our smartphones. For instance,with the GamePad mod you'll be able to turn your smartphone ino a projector or a gaming console. You could also attach a Turbo Charger mod that gives you eight hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charging. There is a mod that used an integrated Hasselblad camera too. The Moto Mods that were introduced will be released locally within the next few months.
