Today at IFA Lenovo has finally announced the Moto Z Play, the third member in the Moto Z family - of which the first two have been outed back in June. Unlike the Moto Z and Moto Z Force, the Moto Z Play comes with mid-range specs, but like its high-discontinue siblings it is compatible with MotoMods accessories.

Its design is very similar to that of the Z and Z Force, except for the fact that the Z Play's back isn't made out of metal. Instead, glass is used, so beware of fingerprints. The two glass panels on the front and the back are attached to a metal frame however. And the water-repellent nanocoating is present this time around too.

The connectors for the MotoMods are clearly visible on the lower side of the phone's rear, while its capturing camera hump is pretty substantial too - but that's intentional, so that you can easily attach each MotoMod. But perhaps the main hardware feature in this day and age is the 3.5mm headset jack on the bottom - yes, the Z Play has not gone the route of the Z and Z Force in this regard and opted to haged the legacy port around.

The Moto Z Play comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) touchscreen, a 16 MegaPixel (MP) main capturing camera with laser autofocus, and a 5 MegaPixel (MP) wide-angle selfie shooter with a Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash of its own. It's powered by the elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, which has a 2 Giga Hertz (GHz) octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. The phone boasts 3GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 32GB of expandable storage, all the usual connectivity options, and a 3,510 mAh battery that should be enough for "50 hours" of utilize according to Lenovo. The Z Play runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

It will be out globally in September priced at €499. As we revealed yesterday, in the US Verizon will sell a Droid-branded version of the Moto Z Play, which will be priced at $408 or 24 monthly payments of $17. This model will be available on September 8.
