All the smartphones that belong to the recently announced Moto G6 series feature 18:9 aspect ratio screen. This suggests that the upcoming Motorola phones such as Moto Z3 Force, Moto Z3 Play and Moto X5 will all sport 18:9 display. A fresh render of the Moto Z3 Play smartphone has surfaced to reveal the front and rear design.
As it can be seen in the image below, the Moto Z3 Play features an elongated body. Hence, it appears that the Z3 Play will be arriving with an 18:9 aspect ratio screen. It is speculated to feature a 6-inch screen that supports Full HD+ resolution.
The top bezel house an earpiece, front-facing camera along with its LED flash. The most obvious change that can be seen at the frontside of the phone is the removal of the home button from the china which now features the logo of the company. The handset seems to feature a metallic frame and a glass rear. The right edge of the phone has volume up and down buttons followed by what appears to be a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The power key is repositioned to the other side of the phone.
The Moto Z2 Play features only a single rear camera, but its successor will be arriving with dual rear cameras housed inside a round-shaped camera module. Previous reports have claimed that the handset will be equipped with 12-mgapixel + 8-megapixel dual camera setup.
The Moto Z2 Play has the 3.5mm audio jack placed besides the USB-C port at the bottom edge of the phone. However, the bottom side of the Moto Z3 Play only features a USB-C port. Since the 3.5mm audio jack cannot be seen anywhere on the above image, it appears that the company has axed it.
Lastly, the bottom portion of the back panel has 16-pin connector for attaching Moto Mods accessories. Since the connector appears similar to the predecessor model, it is likely that Moto Mods made for Z2 Play will be also supported by Z3 Play.
The Moto Z3 Play has recently received certification from Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. It has confirmed that it features Snapdragon 636, 4 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 64 GB. Some regions are expected to receive its 32 GB variant. The device will carry support for additional storage through microSD card. It is speculated to feature a front-facing camera of 5-megapixel and it may receive power from 3,000mAh capacity battery.
There is no confirmation on the launch date of the Moto Z3 series. However, it appears that the company may unveil it within the second quarter of 2018.
