The Moto Z3 Play Android mid-ranger has been detailed in a new set of renders authored by industry insider Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known by his Twitter handle OnLeaks. The images that can be seen in the gallery below are said to be a relatively accurate depiction of the final product, having supposedly been based on the latest information about the next addition to Motorola’s family of modular Android smartphones. The device is said to be 156.4 x 76.47 x 6.65mm in size, thus being noticeably thicker than the 2017 Moto Z2 Play which was 5.9mm thin, with the portion where its camera bump is located reportedly being 8.92mm thick. The largely bezel-less design of the Moto Z3 Play should be dominated by a 6-inch display panel featuring an FHD+ resolution of 2,160 by 1,080 pixels amounting to an elongated aspect ratio of 18:9, i.e. 2:1.
The dual camera setup found on the rear-mounted circular module of the device is said to consist of a 12-megapixel sensor and an 8-megapixel one, whereas the front-facing camera is expected to be of the 5-megapixel variety, according to previous reports. The Moto Z3 Play has already been certified by the United States Federal Communications Commission last month, with its regulatory listing suggesting the handset will be equipped with the Snapdragon 636, one of Qualcomm’s latest mid-range chips. The more premium variant of the mobile device will reportedly boast 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal flash memory expandable via a microSD card, in addition to featuring a 3,000mAh non-removable battery. A more affordable model is said to feature half of that storage space and 4GB of RAM but should otherwise be identical to its counterpart.
As has been the case with all other previously released members of the Moto Z lineup, the Moto Z3 Play should ship with a rear-mounted 16-pin connector ensuring its compatibility with Moto Mods. The Lenovo-owned phone manufacturer already confirmed it’s set to announce its first 2018 products later this month, with recent reports suggesting the company will introduce a number of additions to its Moto G, Z, and E lineups in the coming weeks, including the Moto G6 mid-ranger.
