Motorola promotes the Moto Z Play Droid with up to 50 hours of battery life
Just the other day, Motorola and Verizon introduced the Motorola Moto Z Play Droid. Today, Motorola promoted the "up to 50 hour" battery life that the 3510mAh battery inside the Moto Z Play Droid provides. This is the longest-lasting battery ever placed inside a Moto smartphone. And with the Motorola Turbo charger, a quick 15-minute charge will provide as much as 9-hours of power.

The phone's specs include a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 625 SoC drives the device with an octa-core 2GHz CPU and the Adreno 506 GPU. 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable internal storage. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is on board for those seeking additional storage.

The 16MP rear-facing camera has an aperture of f/2.0, and focuses quickly using PDAF. The 5MP front-facing selfie snapper features an 85-degree wide angle lens. The phone is compatible with the Moto Mods accessories, and Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.

The Moto Z Play Droid will be available from Verizon's physical stores and online starting on September 8th. On Big Red's Device Payment Plan, the handset will cost you $17 a month. Or, you can pay $408 for the phone. Verizon is offering up to $300 with the trade-in of certain models.

Motorola also released a promo for the Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod. With the modular accessory, users will be able to take pictures with 10X optical zoom allowing photographers to zoom in on a subject without losing resolution. The Hasselblad True Zoom also includes a Xenon flash and support for RAW. The Moto Mod will be available for pre-orders on September 8th, priced at $249.99 from online and physical Verizon stores. It will launch exactly one week later.

Will be waiting for the review to see PA's battery test. It's been a long time since I haven't posted anything on PA. Alot of you probably forgot that I exist, maybe Darkjedi will remember, or the Apple fanboy with a weird name xpltykt or something like that.

Z and Z Play are already on pre order from AT&T MX, but they are damn expensive, an equivalent of 800 and 500 dollars respectively. Though, 800 is around the same price for a Galaxy S7... so maybe I'm just exaggerating. Meanwhile, the Z Force is nowhere to be found.
