The Moto Z family may be about to receive another member, as specifications for a Moto Z Play have just been spotted passing through China’s TENAA regulator and the Bluetooth certification program. The handset brandishes the model number XT1635-03 and certainly has the looks to fit right in with Lenovo’s latest Motos.
The listing doesn’t give a full breakdown of the hardware, but it does mention a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, which means that we’re looking at a slightly cut down version of the QHD panel packed into the Moto Z and Z Force. TENAA also mentions a 2GHz eight core processor, 3GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage. Based on the clock and core count, we are likely looking at a power efficient octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, as also suggested by a GeekBench listing. The certification page also mentions a hefty 3,510mAh capacity battery.
Based on these specs, we are looking at a handset that comes in under the current Moto Z, making it more of a mid-range phone. Importantly, the pictures show that the phone also supports Lenovo’s selection of magnetic modular accessories designed for the range. A reasonably priced mid-tier modular phone could really grab some consumer interest.
Other rumors about the Moto Z Play point to a 16 megapixel rear camera with 4K recording capabilities. There’s also apparently a 5 megapixel front facing snapper, a microSD card slot, and a fingerprint scanner housed in the home button. Although we don’t have any clues about a release date, we can expect to hear additional details about the phone soon.
What do you think about the prospect of a Moto Z Play, would you buy one?
