Motorola unveiled the Moto Z2 Play, a midrange smartphone running on Android 7.1.1. Nougat, with a 5.5-inch display, more RAM, and a better camera. It will sell for $499 and will be available from Verizon or unlocked from Motorola’s website this summer. Of the four new Mods Motorola also revealed, the one that has us most excited is the Moto GamePad, which includes dual control sticks, a D-pad and four buttons. It has a 1,035mAh battery so it doesn’t rely on the phone’s battery for power. Motorola says it was developed in partnership with the gaming division at parent company Lenovo.

The Verge, “Motorola announces the Z2 Play and a bunch of new Moto Mods.”
