Moto Z3 Play specs and Moto Mods bundles to go with it leaked out

Moto Z3 Play specs and Moto Mods bundles to go with it leaked out
The Moto Z3 Play is one of the smartphones that Motorola hasn't yet revealed. Despite the fact that we had our fair share of leaks related to the upcoming devices, little is known about the accessories that will be available with the Moto Z3 Play.

Yes, Motorola has decided that the Moto Z3 Play will be fully compatible with the so-called Moto Mods, so we expect the smartphone to be offered in various bundles:

  • Moto Z “Power” Edition: Bundled Battery Moto Mod;
  • Moto Z “Style” Edition: Bundled Style Shell;
  • Moto Z “Gamepad” Edition: Bundled Gamepad Mod;
  • Moto Z “Projection” Edition: Bundled 70-inch Projector Mod.

The folks over at XDA Developers have also learned that the Moto Z3 Play will feature a bezel-less design and a huge 6-inch “Max Vision” AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

An internal document leaked recently calls the Moto Z3 Play “one of the thinnest premium smartphones in the market,” so there's that. Hardware-wise, the phone will pack an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM, as well as either 32GB or 64GB internal memory, depending on the variant.

A dual-camera setup will be available on the back side, while in the front, the Moto Z3 Play will include an 8-megapixel secondary camera. Rumor has it, the Moto Z3 Play will do away with the audio jack port, and the document seems to confirm the information since there's no mention of this component.

Other highlights mentioned in the document include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3,000 mAh battery with TurboPower charging technology (“half a day's power in half an hour”).

Although the Moto Z3 Play will ship with Android Oreo on board, Motorola plans to offer at least two future upgrades to the latest Android OS.

It very hard and sad to see 3.5mm fading away so fast without any proper replacement or any other port or jack. I wish companies get back to 3.5mm or at least find something truly alternative not a compromise or using BT or if u want to charge u can't listen music if uwant music u can't charge.

Side-mounted FP is nice, "thinnest on the market" is not. Overfocus on thinness is probably the worst thing to happen to cell phones.

I don't understand the appeal of a super thin phone. A thin phone that is tall and wide will still not be all that pocket-able. I'd rather have a bit thicker phone with a BIG honkin' battery that lasts a long time. And if you make it user replaceable, I will have died and gone to heaven.

You are right in a way, but the Moto Z3 Play with the TurboPower mod provides a thick phone with huge battery life.

This is the best looking Z phone from Motorola. The reason? 18:9 display fits the body just right! Unlike the previous generations with so much top and bottom bezels like an iPhone 8 Plus

I wish that some of their MODs has the 3.5 jack. I would be great a selling factor for some.

Thin smartphones don't make a good smartphone...
