“The Motorola P40 Play is expected to be an entry-level offering under the brand’s upcoming Motorola P40 series”
Lenovo-owned Motorola seems to be gearing up for the launch of Motorola P40 series smartphones. The handsets are likely to succeed last year’s Motorola P30 series, which landed in markets outside China, including India, as Motorola One and One Power. As per the leaks and rumours, this year Motorola P40 series is likely to come in three models: Motorola P40 (aka Motorola One Vision), Motorola P40 Note (Power), and Motorola P40 Play. Previously, we have seen renders of Motorola P40, and now the same source, OnLeaks, has partnered with CompareRaja to give us our first look at the alleged Motorola P40 Play smartphone.
Unlike the regular P40 model, the Motorola P40 Play seems to have a waterdrop notch atop the display. The handset, which is expected to be the series’ entry-level offering, will boast of an edge-to-edge screen with a fair amount of bezels across all sides, especially the chin. The slight cut-out on top is home to the selfie camera along with earpiece. The rear panel of the P40 Play, meanwhile, comes with a centre-aligned fingerprint sensor and vertically-mounted dual camera setup ‘uniquely’ placed at the top-right corner. There seems to be a circular ring for the primary camera, while the secondary camera comes is placed with LED flash just below in a small pill-shaped module.
The volume rocker and power button are placed on the right edge of the phone, while the bottom of the device holds a micro-USB port. Motorola has also included a 3.5mm headphone jack, on the top edge. In terms of dimensions, the Motorola P40 Play will measure 147.7 x 71.5 x 9.2mm. As for the specifications, the Motorola P40 Play will reportedly feature a 5.6-inch display that may bear HD+ resolution. The back camera of the phone could come with a 13-megapixel primary shooter, while the depth sensor resolution detail remain a mystery at the moment. That’s all we know so far!
