The Moto Z3 Play has shown up on Geekbench with a Snapdragon 660
As per the listing, Motorola’s next smartphone is set to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 on the inside, placing it above April’s Moto G6 Plus in terms of power. In fact, the processor managed to achieve a Geekbench result of 1,299 points when it came to the single-core test. The multi-core test, on the other hand, saw the Moto Z3 Play reach 4,851 points. Coupled with the processor, the benchmark listing confirms 4GB of RAM will be featured as previously expected, while Android 8.1 Oreo will also be on board. Nevertheless, considering Project Treble will be supported and the nearing launch of Android P, Motorola should guarantee at least one major Android update to the smartphone.
Previously, leaked information has revealed that the smartphone will be the first Moto Z device to sport a tall 18:9 display, while the fingerprint scanner has been moved over to the device’s frame. Nevertheless, as is typical with the Moto Z line, support for Moto Mods will once again be making a return. Speaking of which, a 5G mod looks set to be arriving alongside an improved projector mod, a new battery one and a new stereo speaker Moto Mod.
For those interested in the Moto Z3 Play, the official announcement is set to take place June 6, which means a release will most likely happen towards the middle of June. Also, pricing is currently expected to emulate last year’s Moto Z2 Play, so a price tag of $499.99 is highly possible.
