Moto Z Play Shows Up with 3.5mm Headphone Jack on Board

Moto Z Play

Lenovo-owned Motorola recently announced the Moto Z and Moto Z Force smartphones, but it seems the Chinese tech giant is only but beginning its 2016 exploits.

Apparently, there is a new Moto Z Play smartphone the works. The handset was coming, but Motorola had not mentioned a thing about the same. Like usual, leaks and rumors are inevitable, especially when big names in the tech industry such as Motorola and Lenovo are in play.

Just this week, a new photo of the alleged Moto Z Play has surfaced. The leaked photo showcases the bottom of the phone as if comparing it to the rest of the Moto Z family, which includes the aforementioned Moto Z and Moto Z Force.

In case you didn’t know, Lenovo rolled out the initial Moto Z handsets without one of the most basic things – a 3.5mm headphone jack. However, the main agenda behind the image showcased is to show to the world that the incoming Moto Z Play will actually return to old ways and bring the 3.5mm headphone jack to Moto lovers. Interestingly, the leaked images also indicate that the Moto Z Play will still come with the USB Type-C connector alongside the traditional headphone jack port.

In terms of specs, nothing much has really come out apart from the AnTuTu benchmarks that leaked earlier this month. Apparently, the entry-level handset is expected to come with some decent specs which include a spacious 5.5-inch AMOLED display screen with a 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the Moto Z Play will pack a Snapdragon 625 SoC, which is an octa-core processor and it will be supported by an Adreno 506 GPU and a decent RAM of 3GB.

As for the storage, the Moto Z Play will come with 32GB of onboard storage, with room for microSD card storage expected. The back of the phone will come with a 16MP snapper while the selfie camera will include a decent 5MP sensor. Software-wise, the Moto Z Play will be powered by the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and it will reportedly be priced somewhere in the regions of $300.
