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.

Amazon Lord Of The Rings TV Show Latest News

Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series has been quiet on the news front for the past few months but we're starting to some details emerge for the highly anticipated show.
For most of the past decade, TV producers have been desperate to find ‘the next Game of Thrones’, and now Amazon apparently reckons it’s found it: Lord of the Rings.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
