moto-z-play-hands-on_01If you’re the sort of person who hates to be tied down to any particular carrier or a contract, then purchasing an unlocked phone is probably the best idea. What this means is that you get to hop around different carriers if you’re so inclined, or alternatively if you tend to travel overseas, you’ll be able to use your phone with a local carrier.

Now last month the unlocked version of the Moto Z Play went up for pre-order but if this is the first time you’re hearing about it, not to worry because it looks like the handset is now available for purchase. Customers interested in placing an order can do so via Motorola’s website where it is priced at $450 outright.

For those who forgot about the handset’s specs, here’s a quick recap. The Moto Z Play is the slightly cheaper and less powerful version of the Moto Z phones that were released earlier this year. It features a 5.5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display and under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset can be found with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 3,510mAh battery.

There is a built-in fingerprint scanner, a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, and it will also be compatible with the Moto Mod modular accessories. It will also come with Android 6.0.1 preinstalled.
