Motorola Moto Z3 Play partial specs revealed in FCC listing

Motorola Moto Z3 Play partial specs revealed in FCC listing
Motorola recently teased its upcoming lineup of smartphones and the Moto Z3 Play is likely to be among them. Apparently, several Motorola handsets will be introduced next month, but they might not be available for purchase until May.

In any case, the sequel to the Moto Z2 Play has been spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission) with model number XT-1929. The listing reveals some of the phone's specs such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and 4GB RAM.

Also, the smartphone is expected to pack a large 6.1-inch display, although the resolution remains unknown for the time being. On the back, the Moto Z3 Play will feature a dual-camera setup (12MP+8MP), while in the front there should be a secondary 5-megapixel selfie camera.

Just like the Moto Z2 Play, the sequel will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, or maybe a larger one. Last but not least, the phone will come in multiple variations based on the amount of memory (4GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB), but all of them should run Android Oreo.

We have yet to learn how much the Moto Z3 Play will cost, but here is hoping Motorola will price it as competitively as possible.

Sd636. So hot right now. It's a shame this phone will be around $550, (double the RN5Pro). Still hoping the zenfone 5 will make it to the US for something cheaper...

Yeah but that's in the $400 price range. In the 250 range, Redmi Note 5 Pro rules them all. Especially the chinese version with better hardware than the indian one.

The Meizu E3 is right in the Note 5 Pro's tail, though, as a more attractive phone with a better dual cam setup I think.

The meizu e3 is 70-100$ more expensive, undiscounted.

Finally a proper SoC upgrade and smaller bezels but price and lack of 3.5mm output may ruin it for me.

At that price it should have a SD 845.
