A week after its official render popped up on the internet, the Moto Z3 Play has appeared in disguise of real-life hands-on images that confirm the design aspects which have been rumoured for a long time. The images showcase a Motorola device labelled as XT1929 which earlier popped up on the FCC.
Looking closely at the images, the alleged Moto Z3 Play comes with bezels on the top and bottom which are thinner than the ones on the Moto G6. There’s a Motorola branding inscribed on the bottom chin while the thin bezel at the top reveals that the sample device is rather a ‘confidential’ Motorola property. There is a small earpiece and a front facing shooter at the top as well.
Upon carefully inspecting the back of the Moto Z3 Play, we can confirm that the upcoming Motorola device will feature a dual camera setup which will be aligned horizontally like any of its predecessors. The rear panel seems to be made of glass and houses the traditional 16-pin connector that we’ve come to see and love in all Moto Z devices. This connector would allow the Z3 Play to be connected to newer and older Moto Mods that the lineup has been known for.
From what it looks like, the Moto Z3 Play doesn’t equip a fingerprint scanner on the back as well as on the front. This confirms that the fingerprint sensor will be mounted on the edges of the Moto Z3 which will also double up as its power button. The images also reveal that the upcoming Moto device will run on the latest Android 8.1.0 Oreo with the latest May batch of Google Security updates.
Moto Z3 Play will be powered by the Snapdragon 636 chipset, the same SoC which is featured on the Redmi Note 5 Pro and Zenfone Max Pro M1. The device will be available in two configurations; 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB variants. The dual-camera setup at the back is speculated to be a 12MP sensor and an 8MP shooter with a 5MP lens on the front.
