Earlier this month, Motorola announced the Moto Z3 Play, the company’s latest addition to the modular Moto Z lineup. The phone packs a 6-inch 18:9 aspect ratio Super AMOLED display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB options to choose from for on-board storage. The device also houses a dual-lens 12MP + 5MP camera at the back, packing some neat camera features. We came away impressed during our first impression of the handset.
Pre-orders for the device in the U.S. opened last week for an asking price of $499. As for availability in emerging markets, where Motorola’s phones are mighty popular, the Moto Z3 Play went on sale in Brazil starting at BRL 2,299 (approx. $610/₹41,525) for the 4GB RAM model. However, the company also introduced a special edition top trim model packing 6GB RAM and 128GB of on-board storage, priced at BRL 2,699 (approx. $715/₹48,744) in that country. Today, a report from 91mobiles suggests that the Moto Z3 Play is headed to the Indian subcontinent.
As per the report, retails sources close to the matter have revealed that though price and availability of the device in India are not yet clear, the Lenovo-owned company is reportedly all set to launch the smartphone in the first week of July.
With the device priced around the ₹40,000 mark in Brazil, it will be interesting to see how Motorola prices this device in India and if any e-commerce giants sign up exclusivity deals for sale of this smartphone in the country.
