Official Moto Z3 Play images leaked out before announcement
The Moto Z3 Play is the next mid-range smartphone coming from Motorola, and according to the latest rumors, it's likely to be officially introduced on June 6, at least in Brazil, one of Motorola's key markets. Over the past couple of weeks, a lot of information about the Moto Z3 Play leaked online, including some live pictures of the smartphone.

However, published the first official pictures of the Moto Z3 Play and judging by what we're seeing in these renders, Motorola hasn't changed anything in terms of design. But, we get a very close look at the phone dual-camera setup, which is said to comprise of two 12-megapixel sensors.

The large 6-inch AMOLED display features FHD+ (1080 x 2160 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio, and there's no notch. On the inside, the Moto Z3 Play packs a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB RAM, and either 32 or 64GB internal memory.

Just like many of Motorola's smartphones, the Moto Z3 Play will be fully compatible with the company's Moto Mods. As a matter of fact, pictures of the phone connected to an unreleased 5G Moto Mod leaked a few days ago.

Although it's set to be revealed in Brazil next month, we can safely assume the Moto Z3 Play will be made available worldwide soon afterward.

636 is more than enough for a daily driver.

It will be fine if the pricing is reduced from previous generations. Not so much of they maintain or increase the price

The design is fine, how many times can the wheel be reinvented?

This looks like a good phone but Moto is missing a huge crowd of buyers in the market. Their cameras aren't very good, the design is not so great, and people really don't care about Moto Mods. The speaker sounded terrible, the projector was too expensive, the battery was bulky, 5G Mod??? I'm sorry, but nobody is going to put that on the back of their phone to increase speeds a little. Give me a break moto! Moto 1 and 2 were cool...that's it.

That back camera, like a few other phones from them this year, sticks out way too much.

Because it uses the camera bump to keep the moto mods from moving. Unlike the iPhone X camera bump with no use at all.

And what is it with Brazil's fascination with Moto/Lenovo? I guess becuase most are on the cheap side, right?

Cheap with great build quality which you won't get from other Chinese manufacturers.

Moto devices are NOT cheap in LATAM, its more of a brad loyalty thing over here... in central america all you hear is samsung and apple, the rest of latam is samsung, motorola and huawei or lg :)

I think the design with almost bezel less display is just right. Unlike the previous Z phones where the bezels are as big as the iPhones. This is a rather good device. Good job Moto.

Hey KFear, I care about moto mods and i hope they roll out HD projector. Have you checked apple accessories price? i do not care that your broke ass can't afford it. Buy a flip phones, those are for you.

Design is much better looking than the z2 play and the fingerprint sensor on the side is a good idea hope the Z3 has it as well. Price it right Lenovo!

This is actually a pretty nice looking phone, but I opted for the LG G7 ThinQ instead-- only because I feel like having something more trendy (I'm one of the minority that actually likes the notch look, lol). The phone I get after the G7 dies will likely be a Moto Z4/Z5 Force, if they continue that line in two years or so. In general I've had really good experiences with both LG and Motorola. o u o

This will probably be the last one from the Moto mods era... It's time to bring real innovation to the table Motorola or should I say errr...Lenovo.

Moto mods isn't innovation to you? So what is innovation.. animoji and notch?
