A brand new leak claims that the Moto Z4 will pack a midrange Snapdragon 675 chip, the similar anticipated to come back within the Moto Z4 Play, in line with GSM Area

That might rebut a rumor floating final November that alleged the Moto Z4 – or the ‘Motorola Odin,’ a codename that can or would possibly not seek advice from the following flagship Moto software – would pack a Snapdragon 8150 (now referred to as the Snapdragon 855), the top-tier chip that debuted within the Samsung Galaxy S10.  

Now, it’s imaginable that the leak is relating to the Moto Z4 Play, particularly since an previous GSM Area document famous it will include the lower-performance Snapdragon 675 – which works the Play model’s generally lower-specced, lower-cost function. The one flaw in that concept? The brand new leak is ready a telephone with a 6.4-inch display, and the Moto Z4 Play was once in the past reported to have a 6.22-inch display.
