Motorola Moto Z Play poses for pictures

Motorola Moto Z Play poses for pictures
Images of the unannounced Motorola Moto Z Play have surfaced today. This model is expected to be the cheapest of the Moto Z handsets. Earlier this month, a picture that allegedly showed the bottom of the phone revealed that it will feature a 3.5mm earphone jack unlike the other Moto Z models. The Moto Z Play's siblings are the Motorola Moto Z and the Motorola Moto Z Force

The Moto Z Play is labeled the Moto Vector in some of the photographs, and reportedly it will be known as the Moto X Play (2016) in China. In addition to the headphone jack, the phone does sport a Type-C USB port, and a front-flashing flash for selfies snapped in low-light conditions. The screen shows the One Lenovo UI which will be used in China only.

Based on earlier trips through the AnTuTu and Geekbench benchmark tests, the Moto Z Play (XT1635) will carry a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 625 chipset is under the hood along with the Adreno 506 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 16MP camera adorns the back of the phone, with a 5MP selfie snapper situated in front. Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed. So far, there has been no word on when the phone will be introduced.

Hopefully some smart cookie will be able to create a style case with a fingerprint scanner on the back

Just use smart lock that is in all Android 5.0 and above. If you have a trusted Bluetooth device like an Android Wear watch, fitbit, pebble, Bluetooth headset or something else you trust.

Even if that is available, the front one will still exist for this gen of devices.

And hope for updates . Moto x Play still on the same Marshmallow 6.01 here in UK. No patches no bug fixes. I can only advise whoever want to opt for Moto keep that in mind.

Ruined? Lol! Tech Community and so many prospective buyers have never been so much with Motorola. This seems to be a way of showing your hatred on the Asian countries, poor guys them, Dont be so rude.
