technical data sheet price

25 mayo, 2021

Motorola presents the new Moto Z3 Play, a mid-range mobile with a screen that grows to six inches. Inside we find a Snapdragon 636 processor and a double camera is added on the back. Despite these new additions, we continue to maintain an ultra-slim body, where the fingerprint reader has been placed on the side.

After several leaks, we finally officially know the Moto Z3 Play. Motorola continues to bet on MotoMods, complementary accessories to provide more battery, better connectivity or better photographic quality. A different bet than what we are used to. Let’s go to see her.

SuperAMOLED screen and ultra slim body

Moto Z3 Play 3

The Motorola Moto Z3 Play goes up to 6.01 inches with a SuperAMOLED technology panel and 18: 9 aspect ratio. We do not have ‘notch’, but the frames are quite small and a 79% screen ratio is reached. A theoretical number but that advances a fairly compact device despite its size.

The design is surely one of its differential points. We have a glass cover, metal frames, splash resistant and a only 6.75mm thick. For its part, the fingerprint reader has been placed on the side in a place that reminds us of where the Sony readers were located. Why is Motorola regaining this position? Mainly so as not to lose access to the reader even if the different accessories are attached.

Moto Z3 Play 4

Inside we have a processor Snapdragon 636 next to 4GB RAM memory. For storage we start from 32GB and with a version up to 64GB. For the battery we have 3,000 mAh and with TurboPower fast charging via USB type C and a 15W charger. As we see, a mobile that is located in the mid-range although with a quite unique design.

Dual rear camera and Android 8.1 Oreo

Moto Z3 Play Cam

For the photographic section we have a dual rear camera with a 12 megapixel main sensor and an f / 1.7 aperture lens. The secondary sensor is five megapixels and we will have access to portrait mode, in addition to having 1.4um pixels to capture more light.

In video we have recording at 4K and 30fps and for the front camera a 8 megapixel camera, with an f / 2.0 aperture lens and 84 degree angle. A camera that will also help us unlock the device with the face.

Android 8.1 Oreo is the version chosen by Motorola for its mid-range, although we do not have a customization layer. Although it is true that some applications such as Moto Display or Moto Actions are added, where gestures are added to improve usability.

Moto Mods continue to wage war

Moto Mod

The new Moto Z3 Play is compatible with Moto Mods, among which we find several such as the Moto Stereo Speaker, to improve the sound and Moto Power Pack to extend up to 40 hours of battery life.

Despite this, we do not have new exclusive MotoMods for the Z3 Play since it is expected that the future Moto Z3 will also be compatible with these accessories, although in the case of the battery and sound MotoMods they will be launched promotionally together with the Moto Z3 Play.

Versions and price of the Moto Z3 Play

Moto Z3 Play 2

The Moto Z3 Play is now available in Brazil at a price of 2,299 Brazilian reais, about 510 euros at the exchange rate that will surely translate into about 499 euros. It will be sold in the rest of the world in the coming weeks, so we will update as soon as its availability is announced.

At this price the Moto Mod battery is included, so we must bear in mind that the separate device would be slightly cheaper. In Europe it will be sold this summer together with the Moto Power Pack.
