Motorola has finally announced their new upcoming, much anticipated device – the Motorola Moto Z3 Play on 6 June. As Motorola promised, this is the 3rd generation of Moto Mod compatible devices, making it support all of the previously made Mods in the past 3 years – it’s great to see a company keep and hold onto their promises.
The Moto Z3 Play comes with an aluminium frame (6000 series) and a Gorilla Glass 3 panel on both the front and rear – the difference between this and the previous devices is that the last generations were full-aluminium.
The Z3 Play has a large 6″ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 (~402 ppi) and it has an aspect ratio 18:9 and it isn’t HDR10 certified.
Just like on Xperia flagship devices, the Moto Z3 Play has the fingerprint sensor placed on the left side – since there isn’t even enough space on the front in the small bottom chin to house it.
Power wise, its equipped with a Snapdragon 635 chipset with 4GB of RAM and has 32-64GB storage options available to choose from. If you’re wondering, the storage is expandable via a MicroSD card slot too.
The camera department also got a few new upgrades. The primary sensor will keep its 12MP, f/1.7 aperture and will receive and additional 5MP shooter for better portrait, bokeh effects. There are also Dual-Pixel autofocus and a dual-LED flash too.
The selfie shooter is an 8MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and it doesn’t have a dedicated LED flash, like on some Motorola mid-rangers – however it uses a ‘night-light’ feature that will make the screen glow in white – so you still get some ‘flash’ out of a low-light selfie.
Other features include NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, no 3.5mm headphone jack (though an adapter is included in box), USB-C and FM-Radio.
The battery is 3000 mAh which should provide a good day of use for moderate users. In case you need some juice to top it up before you run out, a 15W fast charger should be good enough to keep you on the go.
The Z3 Play will be available in the US for $499 for the unlocked version and Brazil for R$ 2,999. More pricing details to be released later, however it doesn’t seem like a badly priced phone for the specifications and hardware itself.
