Motorola released the Moto Z2 Play in June last year and is set to follow it up with the Z3 Play soon. Renders of the device have surfaced, gracing us with some details of the mid-ranger.

Going by the renders, the device sports a large 18:9 display. The exact display size is unknown but the Z2 Play had a 5.5-inch 16:9 display, so its successor can be expected to sport something in the region of 6 inches. The Z2 Play had a home button at the front that doubled up as a fingerprint sensor, but the Z3 Play does away with that, relocating the fingerprint sensor to the side of the phone.

The front of the phone shows rather slim side bezels. There's a sizeable chin and upper bezel, though, the latter of which we consider to be better than slamming a notch on the device. In spite of the chin, there are no capacitive buttons, and users will have to make do with on-screen navigation keys.

At the back of the phone is a dual rear camera setup, an upgrade from the single sensor on the back of the Z2 Play. Details of these sensors are unknown but rumors point towards a 12 MP + 8 MP combo. Another major feature that appears to be missing is a headphone jack. Motorola seems to have omitted it entirely here, which is a shame.

According to the source report, the device has also gone through FCC certification, with the listing pointing towards the presence of a Snapdragon 636, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. Of course, those are far from verified at the moment, so we'll have to wait for more word on the device.
