Motorola Moto Z3 now official with a 5G Moto Mod for Verizon's network

Moto Z3 debuts with fingerprint scanner on the side, 5G mod - GSMArena.com news

Sure, the Moto Z3 Play had a field day with spec leaks and protected views, but it looks as though Motorola kept nearly everything about the Moto Z3 under wraps. Naturally, people are wondering when the next Moto Z will be announced. At least not this year.

The Moto Z3 will launch on August 16 in the US. The Force model has typically been a slightly upgraded version of the regular Z model with a shatterproof display. As for the cameras, the Moto Z3 sports a dual-12MP camera at the back.

The add-on is Motorola's 18th "Moto Mod" accessory, which people can buy to add some sort of hardware boost to the company's relatively affordable smartphones.

With the 5G Moto Mod clipped on, the Moto Z3 can connect to Verizon's 5G network, which is live in three US cities including Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Houston. That promise has been fulfilled with the Moto Z3 family. 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.

And to make sure that the 3000mAh battery on the phone doesn't expire too quickly while employing a 5G connection, the 5G Moto Mod includes a 2000mAh battery of its own. The phone also comes with a dual LED flash for better picture capture in low-light situations.

NYC public housing buildings are now smoke
It gave all public housing authorities until the end of this month, July 31, to come up with a smoke-free policy. According to the release, smoking in any area where it is not allowed will be treated as a "lease violation".

The phone is splash resistant and has the power button on the left side, with the fingerprint scanner sitting on the right side.

From a subscription perspective, the Mod acts like "a data card connected to your phone", according to Moto engineers. The phone is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, and it comes with support for TurboPower charging, claimed to offer half a day's power in half an hour. In early 2019, Verizon is expected to roll out 5G services across four cities in the US.

The Moto Z3 runs Android 8.1 Oreo. The smartphone will be available in ceramic black color. 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 company has now launched the smartphone only for the USA market. But it is quite likely that the Moto Z3 will soon launch in India. Motorola hasn't officially confirmed availability of the flagship smartphone in India yet. For $480, that is cheaper than a OnePlus 6 but we guess that since it does not feature any attractive hardware specifications, the price is justified.
