The new moto z3 play continues the moto z legacy adding next level edge-to-edge display into Motorola design and puts AI at your fingertips with dual depth-sensing smart cameras and smarter contextual computing.
Motorola's modular technology transforms the moto z3 play. You can print Polaroid photos straight from your phone in seconds, project a 70" screen wherever you are or tap a personal assistant for music, news, questions and more. And all moto mods work with the new moto z3 play.
The smartphone is made entirely from Corning Gorilla Glass and lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum. It has 13 percent more screen area and more pixels per inch than the last generation within the same device dimensions. It comes with a 6" Full HD Super AMOLED display, a fingerprint sensor mounted on the side, along with a simple gesture-based One Button Nav bar at the bottom.
The device is equipped with dual 12MP and 5MP AI-powered cameras, a first for moto z3 play. You can get creative with the depth-sensing AI camera's new photo features, including Cinemagraphs. With Google Lens built right in, the moto z3 play's smart camera allows you to augment your world by recognizing objects so you can search and shop better, interact with text, and learn more about landmarks you visit. The smart camera adds Cinemagraphs for a creative touch to your photos by freezing a moment in a video while keeping part of the shot animated - a combination of video and photo. And for selfies, all you have to do is select portrait mode and the moto z3 play's 8MP front camera takes care of the rest.
The moto z3 play is pwoered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. For voice interactions, the smartphone is featuring four microphones and low power natural language processing in order to pick up your voice even when you're not holding your phone or in a noisy environment.
moto z3 play comes with all the Moto Experiences, including Moto Display and Moto Actions. They let you access phone functionality at the right time. Before you go to bed, night display automatically adjusts your screen to warmer tones to help you sleep. Need to snap a picture? Just twist your wrist to open the camera. Need extra light? Turn on the flashlight with a simple chop-chop motion. Take a screenshot using quick screenshot capture with an easy three finger gesture.
Customizing your smartphone to match your needs is more accessible thanks to moto z3 play + moto mod bundles. Whether you're looking for more power - up to 40 hours of combined battery life when you attach a Moto Power Pack - or entertainment on the go, moto mod bundles have you covered.
