A recently leaked internal document provides a pretty detailed information about the upcoming Motorola Z3 Play, although several days later, there's a new one.
XDA Developers has just gotten hold of what looks like stills from a promotional video for the phone in question, showing off the handset in all its glory.
The photos reveal the Moto Z3 Play's screen and rumors say it's a 6-inch 18:9 FHD+ AMOLED display, which, unlike most flagships these days, doesn't seem to be going for the totally bezel-less look. The handset also seems to be running a near-stock Android skin that utilizes Google's apps.
One notable element shown in the user interface is a single pill button on the bottom where the traditional "back," "home," and "multitask" button can be found. It seems to imply that the Moto Z3 Play will implement gesture-based navigation, much like the iPhone X.
Moto Z3 Play Rumors
Other rumors outlined in the leaked document suggest the phone will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chip, 4 GB of RAM, a 3,000 mAh battery, and dual cameras. It will be available in 32 or 64 GB variants and users can expand the storage via a microSD card slot.
In terms of software, Lenovo is adding a number of camera features including cinemagraphs, the company's take on live photos that keep a portion of the shot animated for a slick effect. The user interface will also feature smarter and easier shortcuts thanks to "Moto Experiences."
It will also support Moto Voice, which uses the phone's built-in noise-canceling microphones to let users control their apps with voice commands.
In terms of hardware, the Moto Z3 play appears to have a pretty thin body, with two volume buttons located above what looks like a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which would most likely double as a power button.
5G Moto Mod
Finally, there's the 5G Moto Mod featured alongside the phone, which apparently gives the Moto Z3 Play 5G capabilities. This accessory has appeared before, but now it's got a slightly new design.
Beyond that, no other details are available for this Moto Mod just yet, but the concept seems pretty straightforward. It's hard to say whether this is something people would or should use frequently.
Currently, it's anyone's guess as to when Lenovo plans to announce the Moto Z3 Play. It's also unclear how much it will go for, but the fact that it's a midrange device means it won't cost as much as, say, a Samsung Galaxy S9.
