Moto Z3 Play with side-mounted fingerprint sensor, dual-camera setup revealed
As has previously been expected, Motorola’s device adopts the new 18:9 display trend by minimizing the top and bottom bezels. Up top, a selfie camera is set to be featured alongside an in-ear speaker and a number of other extras such as the proximity sensor. Also, down below, Motorola branding is present alongside a small microphone. In terms of the rear design, not much can be seen, but the device is expected to adopt a new glass body that should allow for support for wireless charging. What can be seen clearly, however, is the circular camera module which boasts a dual-camera setup coupled with a dual-tone LED flash. Interestingly, however, there is no cut-out for a rear fingerprint scanner. Instead, this appears to have been moved to the right side of the device - a setup similar to the one seen on some of Sony’s recent devices. Also, above the scanner are two volume up and down keys while on the opposite side of the Moto Z3 Play is the power button. Finishing off the design is a USB Type-C connector towards the bottom although, unfortunately, Motorola appears to have removed the 3.5mm headphone jack.
In regards to internal specifications, the Moto Z3 Play is set to come equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 processor according to the most recent rumors, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage also to be expected. In addition, a 3,000mAh battery is rumored to be keeping the large 6.1-inch display on.
Motorola is yet to confirm any details in regards to when the device can be expected, but considering last year’s Moto Z2 Play was revealed towards the beginning of June, a similar announcement can be expected for this year’s successor.
