Lenovo, on Twitter, confirms 3000mAh battery for the Moto Z2 Play

Instead of letting someone else leak information, Lenovo is publicly sharing something about the Moto Z2 Play before the phone is official.

A new set of hardware is coming soon from Lenovo; however, the company isn’t waiting to reveal what battery will be inside. Rather than having a giant 3510mAh battery like its predecessor, the Moto Z2 Play will have a 3000mAh battery. And it’s still non-removable to maintain a slim profile.

The information came from Lenovo’s official Twitter account. Auxen, a representative who handles tweets for the company, responded to someone’s statement that the soon-to-be-released phone needs to keep a larger battery. The growing concern among consumers is that Lenovo will end up taking away one of the best qualities of the 2016 model. Although the specifications are going to either remain the same or be more efficient, the decrease in battery size is massive and will likely show in tests.

Making the battery smaller, though, should make for a thinner body. The Moto Z Play measured 6.9mm while the Moto Z2 Play is believed to measure 5.9mm when it debuts. But it doesn’t look like consumers wanted to sacrifice battery life for size.

Other rumored specifications for the phone include a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display, Qualcomm’s newly-announced Snapdragon 626, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, and a 12MP rear camera.

It’s expected that Lenovo will announce the Moto Z2 Play and other new devices on June 8.
