Motorola Z3 hands-on: Motorola's latest smartphone, brought to you by Verizon

Following on from the launch of the Moto Z3 Play launch in June Motorola has today unveiled the Moto Z3 alongside a 5G Moto Mod

Motorola, a Lenovo-owned smartphone making company, on Thursday, has officially launched an all-new Moto Z3 flagship smartphone. Between conventional fare like batteries and speakers to more niche accessories like a projector, Shakil Barkat, Moto's VP of Global Product Development, said most of Motorola's Mod bases were already covered. Google, which had a greater ambition for modular phones and LG, which tried modular phones once, have both given up on the idea. To offer 5G connectivity, Motorola has embedded Qualcomm's X50 modem within a module that's called the 5G Moto Mod. In fact, it's safe to say that just about everything that makes the new Moto Z3 different from the less-expensive variant is shrouded by the phone's glass-and-metal enclosure. At first, the accessory will work only with the new Moto Z3, but an update will allow it to work with the Moto Z2 line as well.

Powered by the not-so-latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the Moto Z3 is backed by a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Motorola has also brought the 5G Moto Mod that is created to deliver a next-generation experience on the Moto Z3.

The phone sports a dual-camera setup at the rear with a combination of the 12MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture, 1.25-micron pixel size and a 12-megapixel monochrome sensor coupled with Laser Autofocus (pDAF), Color Correlated Temperature (CCT) dual LED flash, Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL).

In the USA, the Moto Z3 comes only in Ceramic Black color and will be costing around $480 (approx Rs 33,000). But the company only announced one, its 2018 flagship, the Moto Z3. On the software front, it runs Android 8.1 Oreo.

Motorola Moto Z3 now official with a 5G Moto Mod for Verizon's network

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. There is a fingerprint sensor on the right side and the phone also support face unlock. That promise has been fulfilled with the Moto Z3 family.

Verizon is now rolling out 5G residential broadband service in four United States markets: Houston, Los Angeles, Sacramento and one additional city to be announced soon. Also, the new Android phone, as it is now, can't do 5G for another reason. Under flawless conditions in the lab, the 5G Moto Mod hit a peak speed of 3.5Gbps for downloads. The phone will be available in ceramic black colour variant.

The 5G Mod's got a little antenna bump at the top there.

Motorola promises the 5G-ready Z3 can download 90 Spotify songs in 10 seconds. As of now, there is no information about the worldwide availability of the device.
