Motorola announces Moto Z3 with 5G Moto Mod support

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

As interesting as the Moto Z3 is, with its slightly tweaked design, and attractive price point, the real star of the show is the 5G Moto Mod. The company is partnering with Verizon to even bring 5G support to the device next year. At the very least, the phone has 4GB of RAM.

There are only a few cities in America that have 5G.

Motorola's version of Android has always been smooth and clean, and there's nothing new here-which is good, in this case.




For optics, the smartphone also comes with a dual camera module comprising of a 12MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and secondary monochrome camera with dual LED flash. The two main cameras have color and black-and-white sensors respectively, and they combine for better low-light performance, according to Moto. It does exactly what the name suggests: offers a connection to Verizon's 5G network. Installing the quartet of antenna arrays is a way around that, as you're unlikely to cover them all. That distinction comes with a sizable asterisk but we'll get to that shortly. It was easiest to implement the X24 in a 4G, data-only mode, as opposed to figuring out how to route call audio into it. Verizon says it will also offer rebates for the Z3 via trade-in, though details were sparse as this story was published.

Moto Z3 specifications Moto Z3 features a 6.01-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Verizon is now rolling out 5G residential broadband service in four USA markets: Houston, Los Angeles, Sacramento and one additional city to be announced soon. No word yet on how Verizon plans to handle the service plan of if you'll be able to swap it between handsets. It will also work as a Wi-Fi hotspot (with your phone) and as a USB-C modem for a PC (with your phone).

The Moto Z3, of course, supports MotoMods, which makes it a lot easier to customize and comes with one new mod that will leapfrog the device into the world of modern communication in 2019. That's a software challenge, not a hardware one, so it's apparently possible. While the user can enjoy up to 5Gbps speeds on a mobile device, the Mod is also as thick as the device itself. And it definitely makes the phone thick and heavy. The Android-powered device is slated to go on sale in the U.S. market on August 16, which will be available on Verizon only.
