Motorola Moto Z Play is certified by TENAA and the Bluetooth SIG
Even though the Motorola Moto Z Play has not been unveiled by Motorola, pictures of the device have already leaked; one photo showed off the 3.5mm earphone jack that does come with the device, unlike the other Moto Z models which are without the jack. A trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site gave us an early peek at the Moto Z's specs.

Today, the Moto Z Play was certified by China's TENAA regulatory agency. The XT1635-03 carries a 5.5-inch AMOLED display and offers a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Driving the device is the Snapdragon 625 chipset with an octa-core CPU, and an Adreno 506 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of expandable native storage.

A 16MP camera adorns the back of the phone, and a 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. The battery is listed as 3300/3510mAh, and at 6.99mm thick, the Moto Z Play is svelte. The handset will be offered in Black and White.

As usual, TENAA posted four photos of the device which you can see by clicking on the slideshow below. In addition, you'll find the documentation related to the phone's Bluetooth certification. Next stop, the FCC.

I'm liking the Moto Z force so far and felt it was a good deal as it was on sale at Best Buy making it cheaper than the Galaxy S7 and HTC 10 that I've had my eye on. It also comes with the JBL Moto Mod Speaker for free which I will use for alarms and at home video use. The shells are actually quite nice to use but I prefer the plain empty back evem with the camera bump. The battery life is so much better than my old HTC One M8 and the front facing speaker is almost as loud though not as full. The cameras are almost as good as my sister's S7 edge even in low lighting. Something I've found with various reviews is their inaccurate reporting on the differences between the Moto Z and Moto Z Force and only AnanadTech made an effort to go more in depth such as actual sensor size and auto focus systems.

I like the build quality on the Moto Z, especially the patterned back, it looks lovely in Black colour version and gold colour version, this one though, Moto Z play, looks like barebone, disappointed. To be frank the patterned back is the thing that I like the most in Moto Z, all the current metal phones' designs have got really boring - A plain back side with antenna lines and camera with flash, got sick of it, now Moto Z play is in the same league, barring the antenna lines. I was waiting so much to gift this to my mom, now I am in second thoughts.

Come on, dude. What's so bad about it? I'm anxious to see the 625 in action.

The SD625 is no more than a 617 so you have kinda already seen it.

I'm guessing this will be pitiful performance wise but should be great for battery life. Even if it's priced really low they should have used at least a 652.

The 625 walks on the 617. Look at the early Zenfone 3 reviews on YouTube. It got 900+ single core score and 5000+ multi core and best of all no overheating thanks to the 14nm.

It will all translate to about the same overall performance, that ends with a poor gaming ability and slight lag here and there.

I'd classify the 625 as a more efficient 615. Much more preferable, as it gets the job done much smoothly thanks to the 14nm fabrication!

It has 14nm on it's side and that is it, see comment #7.

What does 3300/3510mAh mean for it?

It means that this phone should have great battery life, given that the resolution of the screen is 1080p and the SOC uses little power.
