Motorola announces Moto Z3 with 5G Moto Mod support

With the arrival of 5G connectivity in the horizon and SoC makers creating 5G modems to use in mobile phones, but the issue here is that we would need to change our phones and get the phones that come with a 5G modem.

"The Moto Z3 includes similar features to other phones in the Z series, including all-day battery life with a fast charging option, dual 12-MP, depth-sensing smart cameras that work with Google Lens, and a almost borderless 6" Super AMOLED display, according to the release. The chipset also comes equipped with a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. On the front, it has an 8MP selfie shooter with f/2.0 aperture and an 84-degree field-of-view. The Moto Z3 comes with Turbopower support. In addition to being able to connect to the millimeter wave (mmW) technology that's being used to deploy 5G in certain areas, the 5G Mod also includes a 2,000mAh battery. Strangely, the Moto Z3 appears to lack an inbuilt 5G antenna. Finally, the Moto Z3 is available in one color - Deep Indigo. This means, unlike the last year Moto Z family that included the Moto Z2 Force and Moto Z2 Play, there will be the Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play this year. The smartphone continues the Moto Z-Series legacy of supporting Moto Mods. And because of the Moto Mods, there's no room on the back for one. It comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for security. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 takes care of the screen's protection. Most of the magnetic attachments seemingly boost battery life, but one of the most intriguing accessories is a mod that lets the device tap into the 5G network.

The Z3 is also slightly larger than the Z2 Force, coming in at 6.2 x 3in. Motorola hasn't officially confirmed availability of the flagship smartphone in India yet. It runs a "pure" Android experience, cutting down on unnecessary apps and bloatware, and including the latest software with Android Oreo. In fact, it's really just like a Moto Z3 Play but with better internals. Additionally, with Moto Actions, you'll have plenty of gestures, like the double chop to turn on the flashlight, or double twist for the camera.
