New case leaks supply details about the design of two upcoming Moto-branded handsets, namely the Moto Z4 Play and the Moto P40. These leaked case renders corroborate with recent rumors about the two devices. The images of the case of the Moto Z4 Play shows that the accessory will have a cutout for the circular bump of the handset's rear panel, which will contain the smartphone's rear camera setup. Interestingly, the renders included with the case leak show that the device will feature two rear cameras, while recent rumors show that the handset will have a single shooter at the back. The leak also shows that the right side of the handset contains the volume buttons and the power key, while the bottom of the leaked smartphone case includes cutouts for the headphone jack, a microphone, and the USB Type-C port. Meanwhile, users may find two additional holes at the top of the smartphone case, which should accommodate the loudspeaker and another microphone.
Meanwhile, the leaked case for the Moto P40 also supplies supporting information about the design of the upcoming mid-range smartphone offering from Motorola. The cutout at the upper left-hand corner of the leaked case somewhat confirms earlier rumors, which claim that the device will have two rear cameras placed at the upper left corner of the handset's back panel. Below the two rear cameras is the dual LED flash. The cases also show that the right side of the device contains both the power button and the volume rockers. Also, according to the leak, the bottom of the case will have holes that will accommodate the USB Type-C port, the loudspeaker, and the microphone. On the other hand, the top of the handset's case contains the cutout for the 3.5-millimeter headphone jack.
Background: Recent reports already supplied details about the design of both the Moto P40 and the Moto Z4 Play. According to earlier rumors, the Moto Z4 Play will have a waterdrop notch above the display, which will contain the single front-facing camera. Like previous Moto Z devices, the rear panel of the handset includes the POGO pins, which is where the Moto Mods will connect to the handset.
On the other hand, earlier rumors not only supplied information about the design of the Moto P40, but it also provided details about the internal hardware of the device. The Moto P40 will reportedly include a display hole located at the upper left corner of the handset, and this cutout will accommodate the handset's 12-megapixel front-facing camera. Another recent report claims that the smartphone will sport the Snapdragon 675 chipset and a 6.2-inch display with an HD+ resolution. The handset will reportedly have 6GB of RAM, and it will be available in hardware variants that contain either 64GB or 128GB of internal flash storage. Meanwhile, the dual rear camera setup of the Moto P40 features one 48-megapixel main sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor, which the device will likely use in capturing depth data. Earlier reports mention that a 4132mAh battery will power the smartphone, and as part of the Android One program, the international variants of the handset will ship with Android 9 Pie pre-installed.
Impact: The increasing number of leaks for the two devices show the nearing launch of both handsets, although it seems that there are still conflicting details about the design of the Moto Z4 Play. However, these details will be clarified within the next few weeks, especially for the Moto P40, which Motorola will likely unveil during the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona next month.
