The Indian price should be around 30,000 INR to 35,000 INR roughly. So, if you live in the US, you can get your hands on it very soon.

The Moto Z2 Play is powered up by the Snapdragon 626 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz. It comes loaded with Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

You get two variants of the phone with different storage options (32GB storage + 3 GB RAM) / (64 GB storage + 4 GB RAM). Unquestionably, you get a microSD slot to expand the storage capacity.

If you are wondering about the latest Bluetooth tech, it could be disappointing for you that the Moto Z2 Play does not come with Bluetooth 5 support but Bluetooth v4.2.
