  • Verizon just let slip when its 5G mobile service will launch

Motorola is adopting 5G connectivity a little earlier than its competitors and has also introduced a Moto Mod that will make this ultra-fast connectivity possible. There's a 6-inch 2:1 full HD AMOLED display, a 3,000mAh embedded power cell and 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage with microSD expansion up to 512GB. The phone includes a dual 12MP rear camera setup, with one being a black & white sensor, as well as a front-facing 8MP sensor. Sadly the Moto Z3 lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack, but a USB Type-C to 3.5mm jack adapter is provided.

The Moto Z3 will launch on Verizon on August 16 for $480, with the Mod arriving early next year for $180. In regards to the pricing of the 5G Moto Mod, Motorola is yet to confirm any details but it will not be available for the general public until the beginning of 2019.

Motorola has announced its first flagship smartphone for the year 2018, and it's none other than the Moto Z3, successor to the Moto Z2 Force.

Motorola and Verizon are marketing the Z3 as the "world's first 5G-upgradeable phone" which, put simply, is marketing jargon. This will allow customers to eventually take advantage of the carrier's next-generation network thanks to the Snapdragon X50 modem that is featured inside the mod. However, in a surprising decision, Motorola has opted to equip the Moto Z3 with last year's Snapdragon 835 processor, rather than the Snapdragon 845 chipset found in the latest flagships. The camera supports Laser Autofocus Color and Correlated Temperature (CCT) dual LED flash. 5G Moto Mod is said to offer up to 10 times the speed of the current wireless technology as well as lower latency and higher bandwidth. Unfortunately, the Android One smartphones were missing from the show. Further, it bears a water-repellent P2i coating that is touted to protect from spills and splashes on top of 6000 series polished aluminium frame. The sensors do have a f/2.0 aperture.

While the Moto Z3 will be on sale starting August 16th in the U.S., the 5G Moto Mod is mentioned to be available only from early 2019. 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.

Motorola is back with a new smartphone.

-The Moto Z3 is splash resistant, but Motorola hasn't yet specified the IP rating. We will have a full review of the phone by then, although the Mod isn't coming out until next year. That 5G Moto Mod is going to be an impressive accessory, though. There is now no information about the eagerly awaited Motorola One Power and the Moto One smartphones.
