Moto Z3 Unboxing and First Look!

Nichole VegaAug 05, 2018

Motorola and Verizon seem to have made a clever play with the release of a phone that will be in the marketplace and ready for conversion to 5G when the network is ready. Like other Moto phones, it also has water repellent nano-coating.

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. Motorola has been marketing these models as its rugged "shatterproof" offering but last year's Moto Z2 Force shed a bit more light on that matter.

The good news is that while the Moto Z3 contains year-old hardware, it only costs $480. And Motorola is also selling it for the pretty great price of $460, exclusively on Verizon.

"We're making history again as the first manufacturer to connect mobile consumers with a 5G network using our moto mod technology", Motorola said. The chipset is paired with 4GB of RAM and there is 64GB of internal storage inside. Running Android Android 8.1 Oreo, the smartphone includes a dual rear camera setup with a main 12MP sensor and an 8MP front-facing camera. Up front, there's an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with f/2.0 aperture. It should provide new levels of connectivity for everyone, just as 4G LTE did. The main highlights of the smartphone include splash-resistant build, pure Android experience, and Moto Mods support. Motorola hasn't announced any plans for global expansion, so it's unclear if the phone - or the 5G Moto Mod - will ever arrive here in Australia. But the company only announced one, its 2018 flagship, the Moto Z3. It packs a 3000mAh battery with Turbocharging support. Finally, the Moto Z3 is available in one color - Deep Indigo.

But the nation's largest wireless carrier by subscribers essentially outed its plans with the debut of the Motorola's Moto Z3, which will get a "mod" attachment accessory that will let it tap into the 5G network early next year. To add to the advantage, the 5G Moto Mod delivers an extra 2,000mAh battery power upon connection.

Motorola has also introduced 5G moto mod with built-in 2000mAh battery. A mobile solution will follow in 2019, which is when that 5G Moto Mod will come in handy. The price of the Moto Mod is yet to be announced but it won't be available until the start of 2019.
