At this point it’s practically impossible for rivals to compete with Samsung’s high end Galaxy lineup of smartphones. For one, Samsung’s Marketing and advertisement budget is in double digit billions, something its rivals can’t compare against. On top of that, Samsung happens to be making the best Android-powered smartphones in the world right now. As you can see explained in detail all over the internet, Samsung’s new Note 7 is completely unmatched. Although, the slightly less than average RAM management does make you want that 6GB RAM Samsung decided you didn’t need.
While the Android world is dazzled by the shining new Note 7, Lenovo’s Moto Z has leaked online in live images. Sure it wouldn’t come anywhere close to the Note 7’s sales numbers, but in the world of android, Moto phones have always been an exciting part.
The images have been posted on Reddit as well as Instagram by different people and show the alleged Moto Z Play.
One of the biggest changes seen on the Moto Z Play compared to the metal clad Moto Z is that the former features a glass panel at the back. Looking by the images, the alleged Moto Z Play seems to be a Chinese variant and may possibly be a prototype handset. Notably, the overall design of the alleged Moto Z Play still seems inspired by the original Moto Z. In the images, the Moto Z Play is purportedly seen in Black and White colours. The front is seen featuring a home button and possibly embeds the fingerprint scanner in the home button.
Twitter leaker The Malignant has also posted photos from an unnamed source that appear to show the much-rumored Moto Z Play. According to recent leaks, the Moto Z Play will feature a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080p resolution, a Snapdragon 625 processor, either 2GB or 3GB of RAM depending on the version, a 16-megapixel camera, the new Moto Mod modular system, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with an upgrade to Nougat already in the works. Oh, and it’ll also have a standard 3.5mm audio jack according to rumors — neither the Moto Z or Moto Z Force have a dedicated headphone port.
With a device not aimed at the high-end of the market, you do have to give up some features and performance.
We expect more details on the phone to come during IFA 2016.
What do you think about the Moto Z Play? Excited?
