Moto Z3 Play Hands-On: A Modular Phone You Can Afford

Moto Z3 Play Hands-On: A Modular Phone You Can Afford

The successor to last year's Moto Z2 Play comes with notable upgrades and improvements and also continues support for all existing Moto Mods. Get creative with the depth-sensing camera's new photo features, including Cinemagraphs.

The vast majority of the Moto Z3 Play's camera functionalities such as the Cutout mode are powered by artificial intelligence, as was the case with the Moto G6 series, though the device itself isn't advertised as a highly AI-focused offering. This means the event will start live streaming at 6 PM IST.

As of writing, there hasn't been enough information averrable to get an accurate estimation of the Moto Z3 Play's price. The old Moto Mods can still work on the new Moto Z3 Play but we're excited to use and try the new ones like that mod that can print Polaroid photos and project a 70-inch screen.

Super Cruise to expand to all Cadillacs, other GM brands
For the unaware, Super Cruise is a form of self-driving tech that functions pretty similarly to Tesla's Autopilot system. GM employed Ushr, Inc, a startup in GM Venture's portfolio, to map 160,000 miles of expressways in the USA and Canada.

Thanks to the thinner bezels, the Moto Z3 Play sports a 6.01-inch Super AMOLED display, featuring a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. At the heart of the phone, there's the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform, mated with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage. MicroSD card expansion is also rumoured to arrive. The primary sensor is allegedly going to be a 16MP sensor. Motorola says the front and rear cameras can also record slow-motion footage, but the company didn't provide any specifics. The fingerprint sensor on the Moto Z3 Play is placed on the left side of the device next to the power button. If this turns out to be true, this would be Motorola's first smartphone with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

As for the battery, this smartphone is assumed to feature a modest 3200mAh capacity cell. And with rumour that Motorola might only support the Z series for three generations - and noting the lack of any additional Mod launches with this phone - maybe the Z series days are on borrowed time. This device connects with USB-C and has no headphone jack. On the back, the phone comes with dual cameras.

Motorola just unveiled Moto Z3 Play. Just like its predecessor, the Moto Z3 Play also flaunts a semi-modular design, which allows it to be attached to several Moto Mods accessories like a Battery Pack, Projector, and an Insta Print. At retail spots the Moto Z3 Play will be packaged with a battery Moto Mod for $499. With highly rounded corners and a screen-to-body ratio of 79-percent, this is by far the most bezel-free addition to the Moto Z lineup released by the Lenovo-owned company to date.
