Motorola is on its way to unveil the Moto Z3 Play in the near future and its latest image seem to reveal some information about the placement of the fingerprint sensor, or so we like to believe.
The image is being shared by Poetic Cases which already has a carbon-like case for the upcoming Motorola device. Given that the image is the clearest so far, we can see that the alleged Power button, residing below the volume control buttons, is unusually large. In fact, its overall length almost seems to match the combined length of the two volume buttons.
This does leads us to think if the fingerprint sensor could at all be integrated into the side-mounted Power button. The logic here is simple – the usual size of the Power buttons in various phones is probably not big enough to carry a fingerprint sensor. This larger button appears to indicate that it could double up as a biometric authentication system as well.
Interestingly, there is another button on the other side which is of considerably smaller size. Apparently, this ‘extra’ button is of the usual size of a Power button. We are making a wild guess here – it could be possible that this is the actual Power button while the larger button in question is a dedicated fingerprint sensor. In comparison, the Moto Z2 Play doesn’t have any button on its left side.
Other than this, the Moto Z3 Play will come powered by the Snapdragon 636 processor which is a latest mid-range chipset by Qualcomm we saw in the Redmi Note 5 Pro. This will be accompanied by 4 GB of RAM along with the options of 32 GB and 64 GB of internal storage. The display will be a humongous 6 inches or thereabouts.
The dual camera setup at the back will be a mix of 12 MP main lens and an 8 MP secondary lens with the aperture size of f1.6 for the main lens. The Moto Z3 Play is expected to be priced between USD $ 450 and $ 500.
