While most of the smartphone manufacturers have already launched their flagship smartphones, Lenovo-owned Motorola is yet to launch its phone.
Earlier, the company’s lineup of upcoming smartphones got leaked, which included Moto Z3 series, Moto E5 lineup and the Moto G6 series. Now, from the Moto Z3 lineup, the Moto Z3 Play’s case renders have leaked online, showing us the phone’s design. Motorola has decided to retain the modular design.
The form factor of the smartphone is similar to its predecessor but the mod connectors seem to have been expanded. However, we expect that the phone will work with older mods, as well as the new ones that the company launches.
One of the major change in terms of design is the location of the fingerprint sensor. The company has moved the fingerprint sensor from the front to the side of the phone. This could be because of the full-screen display with 18:9 aspect ratio, which covers the major portion of the front panel.
The phone will come with a dual camera setup at the back, along with an LED flash. The camera module is placed in the company’s unique ring-type design. On the bottom side, there’s a USB Type-C port but Motorola has decided to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack.
According to the rumors, the smartphone could be launched towards the beginning of summer. Earlier, it was reported that apart from Moto Z3 and Z3 Play, there will be a third model in the lineup that will have the most advanced specs compared to the other models. All devices will be running Android Oreo out-of-the-box.
Previous reports have indicated that the Moto Z3 Play could feature a 6-inch Full HD+ display with screen resolution of 2220 x 1080 pixels. The phone was spotted at FCC with model number XT-1929, which revealed that it is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 636 processor, along with 4GB RAM.
Motorola is currently gearing up to launch the Moto G6 and Moto E5 series smartphones. The Moto G6 lineup includes Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play while the Moto E5 series includes Moto E5, E5 Plus, and E5 Pro. While the company has not yet revealed launch dates, these phones are expected to get unveiled in the coming weeks.
