Presented the world’s first 5G smartphone

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

While there might not be something that special about Moto Z3 at first glance, the smartphone will become truly unique in 2019 when Motorola will make the brand-new 5G Moto Mod available for purchase.

The Moto Z3 has One Button Nav with an iPhone X-like experience. It's not the most flashy, or the highest-powered, but it's incredibly thin. 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.

As for the 5G Moto Mod, Motorola says it'll be available early next year. The mod is said to release next year but no price was mentioned. The X24 LTE modem will be used for everyday tasks like browsing the web, and the X50 5G modem comes into play when you're live-streaming video or downloading music, movies and television shows. 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. In fact, it's really just like a Moto Z3 Play but with better internals.

Man City vs Chelsea: Why DSTV will not show Community Shield game
Sarri has already set about charming his new squad and is confident Willian will stay after talks with the Brazilian on Thursday. DStv Nigeria have confirmed that they will not show the Community Shield game between Manchester City and Chelsea this Sunday.

On its own, the Moto Z3 is your usual high-end smartphone. The smartphone continues the Moto Z-Series legacy of supporting Moto Mods.

The Moto Z3 offers a 3000 mAh Li-ion battery with support for Turbo Charging via USB type C port and the phone. On the front, you'll find an 8-megapixel f/2.0 selfie snapper too. For further reference, the iPhone X is 7.7mm thick, and the Pixel 2 XL is 7.9mm. Strangely, the Moto Z3 appears to lack an inbuilt 5G antenna.

Around the back, you'll find a dual-lens camera system created to take portrait mode photos and photos with better overall contrast. They both look great. One of the sensors in the camera is monochrome, which means that it captures photos in black and white. Motorola has partnered with Qualcomm to launch a 5G Moto Mod that will enable the next-gen network access on the device. The front camera is 8MP with f/2.0 aperture and screen flash. Now that we have wrapped up the hardware specifications of the Moto Z3, let us move on to the 5G Moto Mod that has been made in partnership with Verizon. The Moto Z series flagship phone comes with support for proprietary Moto Mods and the company has announced 5G Moto Mods along with the phone.

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

Without a major specs change, the price has dropped significantly. 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. You could essentially get a reasonably priced phone for $160, which is phenomenal.
