Moto Z3 Play Release Date, Price & Specifications

Last summer Motorola announced its Moto Z2 Play and Moto Z2 Force, but this year we should see three new models: the Moto Z3 (pictured above in Deep Indigo, thanks to @evleaks), Moto Z3 Play and Moto Z3 Force. The Z3 and Z3 Play will land first - again in the summer - with 6in 'borderless' displays and support for a new 5G Moto Mod.

When is the Z3 Play release date?

Motorola has only said that the Z3 Play will be available to buy "this summer". Since it is already summer, that means it could be on shelves in the next few weeks, or you might have to wait as long as the end of August.

If it's anything like last year, you'll be able to get your hands on one by mid-July.

Motorola has announced a 2 August even at its Chicago HQ where it's expected to launch the flagship Moto Z3.

How much does the Moto Z3 Play cost?
Motorola hasn't announced UK pricing, but in the US it will cost $499, but that price includes the battery mod.

The standalone phone's cost, SIM-free, isn't yet known, but you'll be able to buy it from Spring and US Cellular. We expect it will be around US$449.

The Z2 Play cost £379 when it launched, so we expect the Z3 Play to cost around the same for the base model with 32GB of storage.

What are the Z3 Play's specs?
As per the rumours (some of which which we've left below as they relate also to the main Z3 phone), the Z3 Play has the following main features:
  • 6in AMOLED screen, 2160x1080, 18:9
  • Snapdragon 636 CPU
  • 3000mAh battery
  • 4GB RAM
  • 32 / 64GB storage (with microSD slot)
  • 12Mp + 5Mp dual rear cameras
  • 8Mp front camera
  • Side-mounted fingerprint sensor
  • USB-C
  • Android 8.1
  • 6.75mm thick, 156g
Despite having a glass back, there's no support for wireless charging. There's also no 3.5mm headphone jack.
The main design and dimensions are roughly the same as the Z2 Play due to the fact the phone supports moto mods - the accessories that attach to the back of the phone.

The larger screen means there's no room on the front for a fingerprint sensor, so this is relocated to the side.

As before, it isn't waterproof. Instead there's a water-repellant coating that protects it from splashes and "light rain".

Leaked images of the Moto Z3 are shown below.

As with the upcoming Moto X5, no fingerprint scanner is obvious in the leaked images, though it is expected to feature on the side of the device. The same white line is visible at the bottom of the screen, though, which could be used as a virtual home button.

Through case renders that have since leaked it has become apparent that the fingerprint scanner has moved to the right side of the phone and that Motorola has removed the 3.5mm headphone jack.

The Moto Z3 is expected to get a 6in 18:9 display with a full-HD resolution of 2160x1080 pixels. But there won't be an iPhone X-like 'notch', as is expected for the X5.

When the Moto Z3 Force arrives later in the summer it will likely have a higher-resolution (probably Quad-HD) screen, the Snapdragon 845 processor and a flagship-level price tag.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Google Pixel Review
