Moto Z3 Play Renders Reveal Side-Mounted Fingerprint Sensor
Lenovo-owned Motorola will soon launch a new iteration of its modular smartphones. The Moto Z3 Play is expected to launch in June followed by another Moto Z device later in the year. As has been the case with the Z Play series, the Z3 Play will also be a mid-range smartphone priced at under Rs 30,000 in India. A few leaked images of the device had surfaced online, but, Evan Blass has posted the renders of the smartphone.
According to the renders, the Moto Z3 Play will have a dual-camera setup on the back. For the first time in the Z series, the 18:9 aspect ratio will be introduced. For the Moto Z3 Play to be compatible with current Moto Mods, the footprint of the smartphone will remain the same as previous generations but thanks to thinner bezels, the display will be bigger. Like with the Moto G6 series, the chin will house the “Motorola” branding.
Motorola has decided to move the fingerprint sensor on the side of the device since the bezels are much thinner. The power button is on the left and the fingerprint sensor is on the right-hand side just below the volume rockers. It is worth noting here that the chin could have housed the fingerprint sensor instead of the Motorola branding like the Moto G6.
The Moto Z3 Play will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box which should not be a surprise. The Moto G6 and E5 lineup that was recently launched, also run the latest version of Android out of the box. Interestingly, the smartphone will have the May 1 security patch as well. The device will have a 6-inch display with a 2160 x 1080 px resolution. The Moto Z3 Play is expected to run on the Snapdragon 636 chipset coupled with either 4GB RAM/32GB storage or 6GBRAM/64GB storage.
So far, there are no details about the pricing of the device. Along with the Z3 Play, we expect Motorola to also unveil a few Moto Mods to go with the new smartphone.
