(Pocket-lint) - Motorola announced the Moto G9 Play a couple months ago, and now, a follow-up device has surfaced.

Steve Hemmerstoffer, also known as @OnLeaks or SlashLeak's co-founder, has published a blog post to reveal key specs about the upcoming device and even renders. He has a great track record when it comes to leaking devices. So there is a possibility that much of what he's said is true, including that the phone could have a smaller battery size, a new hole punch selfie camera, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

The device, which has a model number of XT-2117, is likely the Moto G10 Play. Similar to the G9 Play, on the rear, it's thought to have a main triple-camera housing near the top of the device, and on the front, there is a 6.5-inch screen with a hole punch in the left corner and a robust bottom chin. Yes, in case you forgot, Moto's G Play is a budget device series. Still, there are some modern features to be found here beside the rear cameras.

For instance, instead of a fingerprint reader on the back of the phone, it has a side-mounted position. It also maintains the 3.5mm jack. And while it ditched the 5,000mAh cell, the G10 Play still has a beefy 4,850mAh battery. According to Hemmerstoffer, the device should be announced within the next few weeks.
