Motorola started the Moto Z series including the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z Play, back in September 2016. The unique element of the Z family is the support for Moto Mod, which basically is case-like accessories that are attached to the rear of the Moto Z smartphones via a series of magnets to provide additional functionality.

The Moto Z family was then succeeded by the Moto Z2 family in 2017 and the latest is the Moto Z3 family launched in 2018. Continuing the legacy, Motorola will be launching the successor to the Moto Z3 Play smartphone soon.

Popular leaker @onleaks (Steve Hemmerstoffer) in partnership with CompareRaja has leaked the first 3D renders of the upcoming Moto Z4 Play smartphone. Do note that the renders shared aren't the official renders created by Motorola, rather are based on the internal information obtained by Hemmerstoffer.

Moto Z4 Play Design

Let's start with the design of the Moto Z4 Play. As we can see in the renders Motorola will finally adopt the water-drop notch style but will implement it similar to the Essential PH-1 Phone. The Motorola branding has been removed from the front-bottom of the Z4 Play compared to its predecessor.

The backside will house a single rear camera with LED flash just below it. Both of which will be placed inside a circular pattern, a Motorola trait. The Motorola branding dimple sits in the center and the Moto Mod support on the bottom. We are expecting Z4 Play to support the upcoming 5G Moto Mod.
On the right are the volume rockers, and the power button, and the bottom includes the 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, and the primary microphone. Speakers are located on the top frame with the SIM tray slot.

Moto Z4 Play Specifications

Talking of the specifications, the Moto Z4 Play is rumored to come with a screen size of 6.2-inches with dimensions 158x75x7.25 mm (9.4mm including the rear camera bump), single front-facing selfie camera and single rear camera with dual-LED flash.

Other specifications are yet unknown, but the most important feature is the in-display fingerprint scanner, first of its kind for a Motorola smartphone.

Motorola is expected to announce the Moto Z4 Play smartphone in the coming weeks, so expect more leaks anytime soon. Keep following us to know more about the launch of the upcoming Moto Z4 Play and other Motorola smartphones.
