    The Moto Z2 Play looks very familiar

    Imagine the Moto Z Play with a round button, you've got Motorola's latest handset.

    You probably picked up the Moto Z Play for its long battery life, mid-range price and compatibility with Motrola's flagship modular backs. If you were worried that those components wouldn't work on the next version of the handset, don't -- leaked images of the Moto Z2 Play from TechnoBuffalo suggest that the device will be almost visually identical to the original. Well, there is one notable change: the Moto Z Play's square button has been replaced with a round one.

    Ultimately, this isn't too much of a surprise -- any drastic changes to the phone's chassis would have made it incompatible with the battery, camera back and other accessories created for the Moto Z line. Keeping the same shape was important. Unfortunately, beyond form factor and the hard-point connector that confirms mod compatibility, the leak tells us precious little else about the phone. The leaked image's clock does have a date listed for June 8th, however, which could be a tease, but take that with a grain of salt. If we hear anything, we'll let you know.
