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

Share

Motorola has been promising a 5G add-on Moto Mod for its modular Z line of phones for a while now, and the Z3 is the first one that will officially get it. The mod is likely specifically tuned for the Verizon network on the 28-GHz band, which would make it incompatible for use here in Australia - though we're happy to be corrected if Motorola Australia wants to launch it here. So the Moto Z3 owners with the 5G mod will be able to experience gigabit speeds.

Moto Z3 is exclusive to Verizon in the USA, and it can be bought at $20 per month for 24 months, starting August 16.

Either way, we've spent a bit of time with it, but thought we'd share this unboxing first before getting to our Moto Z3 review. It will also have an 8MP front-facing selfie camera with a f/2.0 wide-angle lens. A fingerprint sensor is embedded into the power button on the right side and face unlock features for unlocking is also supported.

The obvious choice for a flagship phone in 2018 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, but apparently that's not the case here. At the very least, the phone has 4GB of RAM.

But one thing's for sure - that 5G Moto Mod will not be the last of its kind, and said kind is "absolutely" a part of the brand's mobile strategy for the "foreseeable future". The phone is available from August 16 while the 5G Moto Mod will be out early next year. The flagship is crammed with a 3000mAh battery but the 5G Moto Mod delivers an extra 2,000mAh battery power when connected. The attachment uses four millimeter-wave modules located in the front, side, and rear to achieve 5G connectivity no matter what orientation the phone's held in. There is now no information about the eagerly awaited Motorola One Power and the Moto One smartphones.

Motorola says the 3,000mAh battery inside the Moto Z3 is supposed to last up to a full day on a single charge. Verizon Wireless haven't even announced when its 5G network will go live, let alone which handful of cities would be first to get it. We're now in Chicago awaiting to see a hardware demo. The smartphone will be compatible with existing Moto Mods in the market.

The Lenovo-owned company is yet to reveal the price tag and availability of the 5G Moto Mod. Moto Z3 can be bought for $20 per month for 24 months and Motorola is offering up to $300 off on the phone under its device payment plan. Strangely, the Moto Z3 appears to lack an inbuilt 5G antenna. For now, there's still much to learn about how it works.
