If Lenovo is sticking to the same schedule as last year, then we may not see the first of the new Moto Z series until June. While we wait, OnLeaks has posted a video and photos of 3D renders of the Moto Z3 Play.
For the renders of the Moto Z3 Play, OnLeaks has partnered with KillerFeatures and not TigerMobiles.
While the Moto Z3 doesn’t seem to be sporting a serious redesign, there are actually some key changes. The bezels are now smaller to fit a 6-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Shaving off the chin means the fingerprint scanner finds a new home. And rather than move to the back, it is on the right side. The rest of the chin is now home to Motorola’s branding.
The back has also gotten a slight redesign. Actually, it is just the connectors for the Mods. Rather than circular contact pins like the Moto Z2 series, they are now rectangles but still the same number which means the old mods will work fine.

There is a Motorola batwing logo on the back and above it is the same camera house design from last year. Though it now holds two sensors and the LED flash is smaller.
The fingerprint scanner’s new home has pushed the power button to the left side. The SIM tray still sits at the top. There is a USB-C port at the bottom but no 3.5mm audio jack.
The Moto Z3 Play is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB/6GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage. The cameras are said to be a 12MP + 8MP combo on the rear and a 5MP front camera. Battery capacity is put at 3,000mAh and dimensions at 156.4 x 76.47 x (6.65) 8.92 mm.
