It is a good thing that Motorola is committed to the modular phone form factor and for the third year running has brought a new Z Play version of its popular smartphone. Called the Moto Z3 Play the new smartphone will be able to attach and run all the older versions of the Moto Mods. There are few changes here and there in the aesthetics, but the major change is under the hood.
If we talk about the design, the Moto Z3 Play features an 18:9 aspect ratio 6-inch super AMOLED touch screen with a finer bezel around it. The smartphone is made of aluminium and has Gorilla Glass 3 protection on it (front and rear). The finger print moves to the side, as the rear will accommodate both old and new Moto Mods.
Specifications and price:
The Moto Z3 Play touchscreen supports 1,080×2,160 pixels screen resolution. This is backed by mid-level machinery in the form of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core CPU, 4 Gigs of RAM and 32GB of storage. A 64 GB model is also available. As for the cameras, the Moto Z3 Play does come with a dual snapper setup at the back. These are powered by 12MP + 5MP sensors and can take images with Bokeh effect. The cameras do come with the auto focus functionality and a dual-tone LED flash.
Now for the front Motorola has incorporated an 8 MP camera on the façade with f/2.0 aperture. Battery life should be good since this one houses a 3,000 mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 OS straight out of the box. USB type C is supported with fast charge module. As for the price, the Moto Z3 Play starts at $499 which roughly translates to Rs 33,450. The Phone is expected to come to India in the coming months and should be available with one of the leading online E-commerce players in here.
