Motorola launches pre-orders for the Moto Z3 Play [Update]

After announcing the Moto Z3 Play earlier this month, Motorola today announced that the device is now available for pre-order. The handset includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, along with 4GB RAM and either 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage.

The battery is 3,000mAh, which is on the low side for a 'Play' model, but don't forget that the Moto Z series offers modular accessories that connect through the pins on the back. And if you purchase the unlocked model, it comes with the Moto Mod that adds additional battery life.

Motorola is adding more features to the dual-lens 12MP+5MP camera, and the big one with this device is called Cinemagraph. Cinemagraph allows you to take videos and leave the motion in only parts of them, and then you can export them as a GIF.

The Moto Z3 Play will cost you $499, and you can pre-order through B&H Photo, Best Buy,, or you can get it as an Amazon Prime Exclusive Phone. Interestingly, the listing on B&H says that the device doesn't support 4G LTE on AT&T and T-Mobile, and we've reached out to Motorola to find out if this is accurate.

Update: Motorola has told Neowin that the Moto Z3 Play is indeed supported by all major U.S. carriers. The B&H listing was an error, and has since been corrected.
