Moto Z3 with 5G Moto Mod Launched: Price, Specifications

Moto Z3 and 5G Moto Mod have been launched in the US. Moto Mods haven't quite take off the way Motorola presumably would have hoped, though the company says the usage stats among consumers who buy them has been steady.

As mentioned, The Z3 will be able to connect to Verizon's 5G network but you'll need the 5G Moto Mod to do so.

Motorola has not released pricing information for the 5G moto mod, just an expected availability of early 2019. Moto Z3 is compatible with all previous Moto Mods and the new 5G Moto mods which comes with the phone.

The company said it is also working to make the 5G Moto Mod compatible with older Motorola Z-series phones, but is focused exclusively on the Z3 for the time being.

Exclusive to Verizon, this phone will get you a discount on a Moto Mod.

It comes in Ceramic Black color.

Like we were expecting, Motorola stuck with a similar design once again as to accommodate all of the Moto Mods that have been released up until this point.

Under the hood the phone has a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage with a microSD card slot as well.

There is no 3.5mm audio jack, but the company is providing a 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter.

There is a side-facing fingerprint sensor on the right side of the device.

The Moto Z3 runs Android 8.1 Oreo.

For photography, the Moto Z3 features 12 MP dual cameras at the back and an 8 MP single camera on the front. Selfie camera features include portrait mode, group selfies, face beauty, and face filters. The next step is mobile 5G service, which Verizon has promised will launch roughly six months after it launches fixed 5G services later this year. It comes with the Snapdragon X50 modem thanks to Motorola's partnership with Qualcomm.
