Motorola Z3 Play, 18: 9 screen and dual intelligent camera

Moto Z3 Play is the new smartphone from Motorola with a 6.01-inch Max Vision screen, Snapdragon 636 processor, 4 GB of RAM, dual rear camera and Android 8.1 Oreo.

Motorola presented the new Moto Z3 Play during an event organized in Brazil. The smartphone inherits from the previous model the main feature of the series, or the ability to extend the functionality through the so-called Moto Mods, accessories to be connected to the 16 magnetic pins on the back of the device. The manufacturer has made several changes to the design and added various software features that take advantage of the dual rear camera.

The Moto Z3 Play features a 6.01-inch Max Vision screen with full HD + resolution (2160×1080 pixels) and an 18: 9 aspect ratio. The hardware equipment includes an octa core Snapdragon 636 processor, flanked by 4 GB of RAM and 32/64 GB of storage, expandable with microSD cards up to 2 TB. Connectivity is guaranteed by the 802.11ac WiFi modules, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC and LTE.
For the dual rear camera, 12 and 5 megapixel sensors were chosen. Thanks to the f / 1.7 lens and depth detection, the popular bokeh effect can be applied (portrait mode). Users can use other advanced features, including Cinemagraph. After recording a video you can “freeze” the scene and animate only a part of it. The final result can be shared as a GIF. The Google Lens technology is also integrated into the Camera app.

The operating system is Android 8.1 Oreo. Motorola has added some unique features such as Moto Actions, Moto Voice and One Button Nav Bar. The latter replaces the traditional Android buttons and allows you to perform various operations via gesture. To unlock the smartphone, you can use the fingerprint reader on the right side or face recognition. The Moto Z3 Play will arrive in Italy over the next few weeks.
