Motorola Moto Z4 Play could pack a 48-megapixel camera

As 2019 hits its stride and we start to look at the upcoming generation of smartphones things get really fun and interesting. If you’re a fan of cutting-edge hardware and like flagship handsets, spring is the best season of the year.

While most of the interest is in whatever Samsung and LG have up their sleeves, it’s time to start looking at what others are working on, too. Motorola, for its part, figures to have a number of devices in the pipeline for the next few months.

According to a source close to 91Mobiles, the Motorola Z4 Play will feature 4GB-6GB of memory with 64GB-128GB of internal storage. Moreover, it should have a SM6150 chipset, expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor.

Other specifications that could be found in the Motorola Moto Z4 Play include an in-display fingerprint sensor, AMOLED display with notch cutout, and a 3,600mAh battery. And, keeping with its predecessors, the phone will offer support for the proprietary line of Moto Mods.

Where things get particularly interesting is in the camera. Reportedly, the Z4 Play will house a 48-megapixel rear camera. Instead of going with Sony, it’s alleged that a Q Technology sensor is in order.

If accurate, these details indicate the Z4 Play could be a solid mid-range smartphone. What’s more, it sees Motorola moving the needle in all the right places.

We’re curious about the camera and whether Motorola ditches the dual setup. The previous generation offers a secondary 5-megapixel camera for depth. Then again, we’re seeing really fun and interesting results from single-sensor models.

It’s not clear when Motorola might introduce its Moto Z4 Play but Mobile World Congress is fast approaching. Then again, Motorola tends to march to its own drum as it pertains to announcements.
