I see there is only the black Play available. Will there be the option to purchase the white/gold one as well in the near future?
Your question might be better directed to Motorola. Currently the “White and Fine Gold” model seems to be an option only on the Moto Z Play DROID, which is a Verizon exclusive. Republic sells the GSM unlocked variant, which is currently only available in Lunar Gray even at Moto Maker.
I asked Motorola and was provided this response for any interested.
As per checking it here in my end the only Moto Z Play that has white and gold color is only on Verizon, but I do advise you to check on our 3rd Party Retailers if they do have this color or directly contact you service provider that you wanted to use.
I’ll admit to being confused why Motorola would provide that answer. I’ve seen no evidence at any 3rd party retailer of a white and gold model other than the Verizon exclusive Z Play DROID. Lunar Gray is all that seems to be out there for the GSM unlocked variant. To the best of my knowledge, Motorola has yet to manufacture such a thing.
In any event, almost no one here is a Republic employee and I’m certainly not. Republic doesn’t typically pre announce phones, so if adding white and gold were in the works; an employee who knew would be unlikely to say so.
