The Motorola Moto Z3 Play arrives to continue the tradition of offering a somewhat cheaper version for the flagship of the company now owned by Lenovo. So far we have seen quite a few things about it as his design Y some of its features , and that is why the news that we are talking about now has caught us a bit by surprise.
Apparently, there could be a vitamin version of the Moto Z3 Play with a very good performance for a mid-range and that leaves us with the question of whether the specifications seen so far were wrong or if the Moto Z3 Play will have more than one version , even for a certain region.
The Motorola Moro Z3 Play will be presented next June 6 along with the other Moto Z3 versions in Brazil. According to our previous information, this device would arrive with a SoC Snapdragon 636 , which is the natural evolution of the Snapdragon 626 present in the Moto Z2 Play . That’s why we were surprised to see a leak of Geekbench in which the SoC used is a Snapdragon 660.
If we take into account that even the FCC (Federal Communications Commission of the United States) had ratified the previous characteristics of the device, we find it strange what was leaked by Geekbench,
As you can see, Geekbench reveals the presence of Snapdragon 660 SoC with a clock frequency of 1.6 GHz. Here we must bear in mind that the scores shown (1299 and 4851 points) are worse than what this processor usually gives, but also It is true that said SoC is capable of reaching 2.2 GHz, so everything points to a version with the software without debugging that would explain the low frequency and somewhat weak performance of this Moto Z3 Play.
This Moto Z3 Play has been listed next to 4 GB of RAM and works under Android 8.1 Oreo, so all other features match what has been seen so far.
The question we ask ourselves now is this: There will be two versions of the Moto Z3 Play or Motorola has decided at the last minute to increase the power of this device with the best midrange chip that exists in the market?
The truth is that if we take into account that the most powerful version of the Moto Z3 will use the Snapdragon 845, Motorola has room to make a little more competitive to the youngest of the family without overlapping market segments.
For now it is too early to draw conclusions, it could also be that Geekbench is wrong and this device is really about the Motorola Moto G6 Plus boosted from the one that we talked to you a few days ago. Anyway, in 8 days we will leave doubts.
