Moto Z3 Play launch event may be coming in just two weeks


The Moto G6 is making a slow push into the U.S., starting with Verizon. Separately, the Moto G6 Plus - the most premium variant in the brand's latest Moto G6 lineup - might be getting an upgrade in terms of RAM and storage, if certain reports are to be believed. While the smartphone still isn't available on a global level and Lenovo's subsidiary does have a history of leveraging several silicon models in identically named devices, this scenario would still be largely unprecedented given the significant differences in processing capabilities between the Snapdragon 630 and 660. The company's upcoming Moto Z3 Play has been subject to a lot of leaks over the past few weeks and it appears that the device is ready for a launch.

June 6 will see the company head to Brazil - the same location as the Moto G6 launch - to announce new phones, according to an invite directly from the company.

Motorola's new handset also features dual 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel rear cameras with f/1.8 aperture that can capture 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second and a front-facing 8-megapixel shooter that's good for up to 1080p videos at 30 fps.

The Moto G6 Play is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 427 chipset which is coupled with 2GB of RAM clocked at 1.4 GHz with an Adreno 505 GPU. The front camera will also see a bump to an 8MP sensor. It sports a 5.7-inch HD+ IPS display and runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

Either way, the Moto G6 is first available at Verizon from what I can tell, and the $240 price is cheaper than the $250 Motorola plans to sell it at. The 13-megapixel camera on the back is accompanied by an LED flash. The phone may be offered in a choice of 32GB and 64GB of internal storage along with support for microSD card.
