Motorola's new Moto Z3 smartphone can be UPGRADED to 5G tech

  • Verizon just let slip when its 5G mobile service will launch

This is the first indication of when its mobile 5G network would launch. Earlier this year, they released the Moto Z3 Play. The device is compatible with all previous MotoMods Motorola has up its sleeves as well as the new 5G Moto mods which the device comes with. Incidentally, the display doesn't have the increasingly common notch at the top. The smartphone comes with a 64GB of onboard expandable storage. The Moto Z3 shows how much Motorola is off the radar this year as the device comes with last year's Snapdragon 835 SoC. The device is is splash resistant.

Moto Z3 comes in one colour of "ceramic black". The dual camera setup has a combination of an RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor. On the front, it has an 8MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture and an 84-degree field-of-view. The front camera sensor also features a Face Unlock technology. Moto Z3 cameras also come with Google Lens integration for object recognition. Moto Mods haven't quite take off the way Motorola presumably would have hoped, though the company says the usage stats among consumers who buy them has been steady. A 3000mAh battery completes the package. Another potential drawback is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The connectivity option includes, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth v5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS/ A-GPS, and USB Type-C. Motorola on Thursday claimed the prize for announcing the first 5G-ready smartphone. Strangely, the Moto Z3 appears to lack an inbuilt 5G antenna. The Mod will definitely only work on Verizon's 5G network, not any other carrier's, though. According to PCMag (citing Motorola engineers), the 5G Mod will act like "a data card connected to your phone" meaning it'll have its own SIM and subscription.

Motorola announced a 5G Moto Mod with the Moto Z3, which is going to give customers the ability to connect to 5G when Verizon gets 5G up and running. Unfortunately, it also seems that one that didn't make the cut is the Moto Z3 Force, which means there won't be a shatterproof version of the Moto Z3 line this year.

There are only a few cities in America that have 5G. It's not coincidental that the 5G Moto Mod won't be available until then at an undisclosed price. The clip-on additional battery feature is also a bonus. And more importantly, the Moto Z3 retails for a much lower price. The 5G Moto Mod has an in-built 2000 mAh battery. The company has now launched the smartphone only for the USA market.

Now with the Moto G5S Plus, Moto G5 Plus and the Moto G5 already receiving Android 8.1 Oreo soak test update, it is expected that Motorola may soon push the update for Moto G5S as well.

Sadly, the event only included the Moto Z3 and the 5G Moto Mod.
