line of phones that are expected to be released at some point this year. Following all of that, we now have our first look at another phone from the company that should see a release in 2019 — the Moto Z4 Play.

, the biggest difference here is the display. While the Z3 Play already had pretty slim bezels, the Z4 Play's are even smaller thanks to a narrower chin (with no Motorola logo) and a waterdrop-style notch at the very top that houses the front-facing camera.

Here's where things get interesting.

The Moto Z4 Play is shown as having just one rear facing camera despite the Z3 Play having two, and on the bottom frame next to the USB-C port is a 3.5mm headphone jack (something that was missing on last year's model). Furthermore, with no fingerprint sensor in sight, it's likely that the Moto Z4 Play will use an in-display one.


Even more intriguing is the Moto Mod connector on the back of the Z4 Play. Motorola initially promised that the Moto Mod system would work for three generations of phones, which we've already had with the Moto Z, Z2, and Z3 series. The connector on the back of the Z4 Play looks identical to the one we've had since 2016, indicating that Motorola has decided to keep Mod support going for at least another year. Not only does this mean any new Mods released alongside the phone will work with previous Moto Z devices, but all Mods that are already available should work with the Moto Z4 Play from day one.

There's currently no word on pricing or a release date, but we'll let you know as soon as that info is made available.

What are your initial impressions of the Moto Z4 Play?
