Lenovo-owned Motorola has sent invites for an event on June 6 to the Brazilian media. Although the invite doesn’t explicitly say it is the Moto Z3 Play launching but since the first of the Moto Z2 series to launch last year was the Moto Z2 Play, it won’t be a surprise the Z3 Play is arriving first this year.
The poster shows the front of the device but does well to hide any key details. The event will likely begin at 9:30 AM Brazillian time judging from the time on the phone.
Leaked reports say the Moto Z3 Play will have a 6.01-inch AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Motorola has termed the new display style MaxVision. The phone will also get a more powerful chipset – the Snapdragon 636, so we expect a significant improvement in performance.
RAM is reported to be 4GB with 32GB and 64GB storage variants. Storage will be expandable thanks to a MicroSD card slot. Also, the Moto Z3 Play will retain its 3000mAh battery.
Another big upgrade is in the camera department. The Z3 Play gets an extra sensor on the back making it two 12MP sensors. The front camera is also reported to have been bumped up to 8MP. The fingerprint scanner is no longer in front and will now be on the right side of the phone.
One thing that has not changed is support for Moto Mods and this year, Motorola may sell the phone along with a Moto Mod. So if extra battery life is what you want, there is a power bundle, same for gamers (moto mod gamepad), and probably audiophiles too (Moto Speaker Mod).
