Moto Z3 Unveiled with Breakthrough 5G Mod

To the point, the Moto Z3 is the latest flagship device featuring the Moto Mods system of magnetically attached accessories which, this, provide the point of differentiation from any other phone on the market right now. We got to take an early look at the phone at Motorola's launch event in Chicago. Google, which had a greater ambition for modular phones and LG, which tried modular phones once, have both given up on the idea.

The upcoming 5G Moto Mod - compatible only with Verizon Wireless, by the way - attaches to the back of the Z3, just like the 360-degree camera mod or external battery mod, leveraging the existing pins and magnets Motorola has used on the Z-line of smartphones for the past few years. While it comes armed with last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, there is one interesting thing about the device, which you will enjoy reading about thoroughly. The 5G Mod will be launched in early 2019 and the pricing of the same has not been revealed by the brand at the moment.

The handset's rear camera cluster includes a 12-MP main shooter with an f/2 lens, paired with another 12-MP monochrome array for depth-sensing duties and other computational photography tasks like bokeh effects. Up front, there's an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with f/2.0 aperture.

Numerous Z3 Play's hallmark features, like its dual-lens cameras capable of shooting in true black-and-white, as well as its 6-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display, return in the Moto Z3. The smartphone comes with Android 8.1 Oreo. Sadly the Moto Z3 lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack, but a USB Type-C to 3.5mm jack adapter is provided. "Its 6" display uses a 2160x1080 OLED panel covered with a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3, and it's all powered by a 3000-mAh non-removable battery. But the 5G Moto Mod opens up several possibilities without encumbering the smartphone with additional embedded hardware. Adding the 5G capability with an accessory should make the transition cheaper, as it negates the need to buy a new phone.

The Moto Z3 offers a dual camera setup on the back. The phone will be available in ceramic black colour variant. While the user can enjoy up to 5Gbps speeds on a mobile device, the Mod is also as thick as the device itself.

-The Moto Z3 is splash resistant, but Motorola hasn't yet specified the IP rating. The smartphone flaunts a glass-sandwich design and features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for security. As of now, there is no information about the worldwide availability of the device.
