Moto Z3 launches with Verizon with a modular path to 5G

The company's billing its new Moto Z3, which launches on Verizon on August 16, as the first phone that'll be "upgradeable" to 5G with the help of a new 5G Moto Mod.

The Moto Z3, a smartphone that has an accessory that can convert it from a 4G phone to a 5G phone. Google, which had a greater ambition for modular phones and LG, which tried modular phones once, have both given up on the idea. Alongside the Moto Z3, the company has unveiled a 5G-compatible Moto Mod, which is slated to launch early next year. Thanks to the new Mod, Moto Z3 will be the first smartphone to Verizon to access Verizon's 5G network.

Powered by the not-so-latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the Moto Z3 is backed by a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

That little bump on the top is the clip-on 5G mod.

Coming to the cameras, there are 12MP dual cameras on the rear with f/1.7 aperture and an 8MP single selfie camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture. The front-facing camera can capture 8-MP shots through an f/2 lens with an 84-degree field of view.

It includes the same Snapdragon 835 chipset and dual 12-megapixel cameras as previous year, and it has the glass back and 1080p 18:9 OLED display that we saw on the Z3 Play.

The Moto Z3 looks like every other metal and glass phone. The smartphone runs Android 8.1 Oreo and employs a near stock version with gesture support similar to that upcoming Android P. The Moto Z3 lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack and it's armed with a 3000mAh battery. The device is now official, will cost $480 at Verizon, and should find itself 5G connectivity at some point via Moto Mod. 5G Moto Mod is said to offer up to 10 times the speed of the current wireless technology as well as lower latency and higher bandwidth. Like other Moto Mods, this one connects to the back of Moto Z-series devices. A fingerprint sensor is embedded into the power button on the right side and face unlock features for unlocking is also supported. Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and USB Type-C port. The Moto Z3 comes in only one colour model - Ceramic Black. In the trial, the pre-production 5G Mod achieved download speeds over 3Gbps, though it was very prone to slowdown when the signal blaster was blocked by objects.

-The Moto Z3 is splash resistant, but Motorola hasn't yet specified the IP rating. As of now, there is no information about the global availability of the device.
