Motorola Moto Z3 Play Specifications, Features and Price

Motorola has unveiled the new Moto Z3 Play. The phone comes just a year after the Moto Z2 Play and pioneers the new Z3 series.

The Z3 Play features a 6-inch Super AMOLED screen of 1,080 x 2,160 pixels. The bezels are trimmed significantly, especially around the chin, and that’s why the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the left side – just like on the Xperia bunch a while back.

The Z3 Play runs Snapdragon 636 chipset – a welcome improvement over the 626 chip. There is new processor with eight Kryo 260 cores and a new Adreno 509 GPU. And now both the 32GB and 64GB models will come with 4 gigs of RAM.

The camera department has got an upgrade, too. The main camera at the back keeps the 12MP sensor, once again sitting behind f/1.7 lens, but also receives a secondary 5MP snapper to help with those trendy background effects. Dual-Pixel autofocus is available, as well as the dual-tone LED flash.

The selfie imager is now an 8MP one behind f/2.0 lens, but it has lost the LED flash. You can use the screen as night light instead, so it’s not a total loss.


The Moto Z3 Play has a 3,000 mAh battery inside its thin body and it supports TurboPower 15W charging. The Z3 Play runs on Android Oreo with all Moto perks available – Moto Display, Actions, Camera, among others.
