Earlier in the month, Motorola launched its latest flagship Moto Z3 Play in Brazil. The Lenovo-owned company however has been quiet about the smartphone’s pricing and availability in other countries. But now a new report suggests that the modular smartphone could be coming to India in the first week of July.
91mobiles reports that the Moto Z3 Play will be launching in India next month. However, the publication does not state anything about pricing. If we have to consider the Brazilian price of R$ 2,299, the phone could retail somewhere around Rs 40,000 in India. It’s also not clear if Motorola will be bringing the higher-end variant of the smartphone to India. The new variant with 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage was launched yesterday in Brazil for R$2,699 (approximately Rs 48,550).
The Moto Z3 Play is the successor to the Moto Z2 Play, and takes its place as the flagship smartphone from Motorola. One of its key highlights is the modular design, which allows users to add various sets of Moto Mods to the smartphone, in order to build on its capabilities. Motorola has also announced four mods for the Moto Z3 Play that could also be expected to launch with the smartphone.
The Moto Z3 Play comes with Snapdragon 636 SoC, alongside 4GB RAM, and the option to choose between 32GB and 64GB of storage. The device boasts a 6-inch 18:9 FHD+ (1080×2160 pixels) AMOLED display. Because of the tiny bezels, and the modular design, the Moto Z3 Play features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The smartphone runs Android 8.1 Oreo OS, and is fueled by a 3,000mAh battery.
