Feast your eyes on the so-called Moto Z3 Play in all its glory

We first caught wind of the mid-range Moto Z3 Play last week when a batch of aftermarket case renders surfaced online – and now we’re being treated to another set of visuals, this time showcasing the handset itself.

Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known by his Twitter handle OnLeaks, released a set of renders – illustrated using detailed insider information, including schematics – on April 1, allegedly showcasing the so-called Moto Z3 Play from all angles.

The renders corroborate everything we saw in the batch that surfaced on March 28, including that Lenovo-owned Motorola moved the fingerprint reader to the right-hand side of the unit and scrapped the beloved 3.5mm headphone port.

A recent FCC filing revealed that the Moto Z3 Play is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of internal storage, a dual-camera (12MP + 8MP), a 5MP selfie shooter and a 3000mAh non-removable battery.

The device features the same modular – Moto Mods – connection pins as last year’s Moto Z2 Play, as per the renders, affording customers the option to attach a slew of accessories, like a heart-rate monitor and even a 360-degree camera.

Analysts believe that Motorola is preparing to announce the Moto Z3 Play, alongside the Moto G6, at a dedicated event later this month, with some saying that the rumoured high-end Moto Z3 Force could also make an appearance.
