Motorola's Moto Z3: The first phone that can upgrade to 5G

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

You can expand the storage using microSD card (up to 2TB).

Motorola unveiled its new phone, the Moto Z3, on Thursday at a press event at its headquarters in Chicago. The device is is splash resistant.

The Moto Z3 will launch on August 16 in the US. The dual camera setup has a combination of an RGB sensor and a monochrome sensor. On the front, it features an 8-megapixel sensor that also supports the Face Unlock feature. On the front, the smartphone has an 8 MP front-facing camera with a selfie flash to improve the low-light selfie photography. Interestingly, Motorola has baked in Google Lens into the rear camera.

The Moto Z3 could be called a 2018 flagship with 2017 specifications.

Motorola is back with a new smartphone. There are no Moto Mods included in the box - at least from what Motorola has said so far - unlike the Moto Z3 Play which had the PowerPack included in the box. 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 5G Moto Mod won't be made available until 2019, so you can buy the Moto Z3 now and upgrade to 5G next year with a snap-on Moto Mod.

The Moto Z3 is the latest in the company's Z family of phones that feature magnetic backings to attach to Moto Mods-phone modules that allow users to customize your phone's look and feel, and increase the battery life, as reported by our sister site CNET.

Once the carrier's 5G network is available next year, you'll be able to purchase a 5G MotoMod that will bring support for the newer technology to your Z3 since it will pack Qualcomm's X50 modem (as well as an extra 2,000 mAh of juice to power that fast connection).

Moto Z3 also comes with cinemagraph capability which is a type of photography that creates movement on still images.

There are only a few cities in America that have 5G.

These questions will likely surface as the 5G Moto Mod's release nears.

In addition to those next-generation radios, the new accessory carries a 2,000-mAh battery to offset potential increases in battery drain.

The Moto Z3 price in the United States has been set at $480. The phone will be available in ceramic black colour variant. The mod will work with other Z phones, and will double or triple the existing speeds, even if it isn't the full 5G experience. The company has now launched the smartphone only for the US market.
