It had revealed that the Moto Z3 Play would be arriving with Snapdragon 636. Even the FCC listing of the phone has revealed the presence of the same SoC. A Geekbench listing of the Moto Z3 Play which shows that instead of the SD636 chipset, it features Snapdragon 660.
As it can be seen below, the Moto Z3 Play’s Geekbench listing reveals the presence of Snapdragon 660 SoC. Its clocking speed is mentioned as 1.6 GHz.
The Geekbench listing further reveals that the SD660 chipset is coupled with 4 GB of RAM and the handset is running on Android 8.1 Oreo. In the single-core and multi-core tests, the Moto Z3 Play has respectively scored 1299 and 4851 points.
These scores are on lower side compared to other phones that have surfaced with the same chipset on Geekbench. Also, the processing speed of the SD660 that is mentioned as 1.6 GHz is lower than its usual clocking speed of 2.2 GHz.
