Moto Z Play Variant Spotted on AnTuTu With Snapdragon 625

by Joel 2

Motorola unveiled two new devices in its Moto Z series lineup a few weeks back. However, from the recent leaks and rumors, it looks like the company may have other devices in the lineup as well. The latest information we have is on the Chinese variant of Moto Z Play and it comes via a trusted source, namely the AnTuTu benchmarking app. The phone seems to have just run the benchmark app revealing most of its specs as well as its AnTuTu scores.

The Moto Z Play will be a toned down version in the flagship series. AnTuTu reveals that the phone will come with the Snapdragon 625 mid-range chipset along with 2GB / 3GB RAM and 16GB / 32GB ROM options. This clearly tells us that the phone is going to be a mid-range handset. Further, it will feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display up front and a 5MP shooter. There will be a 16MP camera at the back. It will run on Android 6.0.1. As for the score, AnTuTu reveals that it managed to get around 59K points, which is pretty good for a mid-ranger.

This is not the first time we are hearing that the Moto Z Play will feature Snapdragon 625. Earlier, a Geekbench listing had revealed that the phone will feature this mid-range chipset but that was the XT1635-01 model. This is the XT1635-03 model, which is probably why AnTuTu is referring to this as the Chinese variant. In case you remember, we had also seen the Moto Z Play on the Indian import export data website Zauba, a few days back. So, we could meet this handset soon.

Pricing is said to be around 1999 Yuan ($300), which if true, doesn’t really help the handset in the Chinese market considering you get Xiaomi Mi5 as well as ZUK Z2, both featuring Snapdragon 820 and better specs around this price.
