Moto Z2 Play specs may not feature a large battery

It's now unclear whether the rollout of the new software package is even wider, though that may not necessarily be the case seeing how Motorola Mobility usually resorts to staged releases as far as Android security updates are concerned. The biggest problem with tablets is that they are mostly just larger version of our phones, and an experience tailored for the big screen could propel interest again.

Unlike the old Xoom, the Productivity Mode in this Android tablet will reportedly be an option that users can activate or deactivate. Android Police also states that "you can close an app by long-pressing on an icon in the navbar and dragging it up", suggesting that the "tabbed apps" will be kept in memory until closed.

At the time, the Productivity Mode seen on the screenshot was believed to be an entirely new piece of software.

If Motorola Android tablet will materialize with pro features, it is safe to assume that it will come with a stylus accessory. Since then, no tablet has been introduced by Motorola or Lenovo. However, we would like to see the Moto Mod feature adapted for a tablet device, that could enhance the tablet's productivity further. Unfortunately, the source didn't provide any information on the device's other specifications like processor, storage or RAM.

Apart from these two aspects of Motorola's upcoming tablet, no other details are known as of now.

The last tablet we remember from Motorola was the XOOM a few years back.

The Droid Xyboard came with a premium look, available in 8.2-inch and 10.1-inch sizes and was capable of 4G LTE cellular connectivity from Verizon. The lowest end 16GB model of the Droid Xyboard 10.1 costs $699, while the 8.2 starts at $430 for its 32GB model.

Motorola's new Android tablet will not only have to be extremely better than the Droid Xyboard, but it also needs to compete with the current tablets like Apple's iPad Pro and Microsoft's Surface products. The device will likely run near stock Android 7.1 Nougat.
