The next generation Moto Z3 Play is coming and the FCC listing confirms some important specifications of the device.
Motorola is an Android OEM that hasn’t shown up in a while. It’s likely that the company is preparing for the next generation devices of its popular G, E, and Z series. According to recent rumors, the successor to each series is planned for launch later in 2018. Talking of the Moto Z, the manufacturer has recently received FCC confirmation in the U.S for the upcoming Moto Z3 Play. Which means that phone is already in the making. The listing provides some key specs of the device as well.
Moto Z3 Play Coming with Snapdragon 636 SoC, 6.1-inch Display and more
Slashleaks previously provided leaked renders from a case-maker giving us a decent amount of idea about the phone’s design. It could be concluded that the phone will sport a dual camera setup on the rear encased inside the circular glass housing. Further, the volume rocker is on the right along with the side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Speaker grills are placed on the bottom of the back panel.
According to the FCC listing, the Moto Z3 Play will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset and was mentioned with model number XT-1929. The device will come in two variants – (1) Single SIM (XT1929-1 and XT1929-4) and (2) Dual SIM (XT1929-5). The screen size has been bumped to 6.1-inches from 5.5-inches, as seen on the predecessor. Both the side-mounted fingerprint sensor and larger display size indicates towards a small bezel design. But the image from the source tells the story otherwise.
The Moto Z2 Play successor will be available in two different storage configs – 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. Other confirmed specs include Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, dual 12MP + 8MP sensors on the rear, a 5MP sensor on the front, and a speculated 3000mAh or higher battery. The upcoming Z phone will be priced somewhere between $450-$500 depending on the variants.
The Moto Z3 Play is expected to hit the market later this year. There are no confirmations on the software yet, but we highly expect Motorola to release the device with at least Android Oreo, given the fact that Android P will probably be available at that time. Considering the specs and the estimated price tag, would you consider buying the device? Let us know through the comments.
