Amidst an imminent Moto G series refresh, an interesting new detail regarding the Moto Z3 Play has emerged online today. According to MySmartPrice, alleged cases of the handset were spotted on Poeticcases.com. The cases called Karbonn Shield cases were listed with an imaginary model of the handset pictured in it.
According to that render, the Moto Z3 Play looks to follow Sony’s lead with the fingerprint reader placement. Sony has previously put fingerprint readers on the power button and the Moto Z3 Play is alleged to have a similar design. While Motorola has mostly kept the fingerprint reader on the front, it would have to change the setup if it accommodates slim bezels. So far, the company has not done this before. The render shows a rather slim bottom bezel with just a Motorola branding pasted on it.
There aren’t any dimensions known yet but this is the first time Motorola model to have such an implementation. Hence, the info is to be digested with proper precautions. This is even more so because the Moto Z3 Play is a modular device and the case has no cutouts for the connector pins at the back. On the other hand, CAD renders by Steve Hemmerstoffer have also hinted at such a design change previously.
If there’s any truth in the listing, the Moto Z3 Play has USB Type-C and a dual camera setup at the back. As for spec-sheet, a recent FCC spotting suggests a Snapdragon 636 chipset beneath a 6.0-inch display. We can expect at least 4GB of RAM with the premium Motorola phone as well as a 3000mAh battery. CAD renders have also shown the handset will skip the 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Moto Z2 Play launched in June last year and Motorola will probably stick to that annual release cycle for the Moto Z3 Play.
