Moto Z3 debuts with fingerprint scanner on the side, 5G mod

The Moto Z3 comes weeks after the launch of Moto Z3 Play and it basically clubs modern design with decent, but outdated processor into a package that does not cost a lot of money.

First, the phone. It has a 6-inch AMOLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card slot that can host cards up to 2TB.

Update, 2 pm. PT: To include comment from Verizon and more details on the mod. However, Motorola also went on to announce a new 5G Mod that has been developed in partnership with Verizon. While previous high-end Moto Z handsets were distinguished by their "Force" subtitle, this time around, Motorola's range-topping modular phone is simply called the Moto Z3. Yes, it has an advanced Snapdragon X50 modem that will enable the phone to access the lucrative 5G grid.

The Moto Z3 is launching on August 16 and will be available for $20/month for 24 months - working out to a final retail price of just $480. But Motorola insists that between the Mod's 2,000mAh battery and the phone's 3,000mAh you'll still get a "full day" of use. The next-generation wireless technology, promising significantly higher speed and responsiveness, is seen as a potential catalyst for a wave of innovation in tech, powering everything from self-driving cars to telemedicine and streaming VR. The Moto Z3 runs on the older Snapdragon 835, which is a bit of a disappointment to say the least. The front camera is 8MP with f/2.0 aperture and screen flash. There is an 8-megapixel image sensor at the front for selfies with 1.12 micron pixels and 84-degree field of view.

With the 5G Moto Mod clipped on, the Moto Z3 can connect to Verizon's 5G network, which is live in three US cities including Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Houston. However, the battery supports fast charging with Moto's TurboPower solution. The Moto Z3 comes in only one colour model - Ceramic Black. Most of the magnetic attachments seemingly boost battery life, but one of the most intriguing accessories is a mod that lets the device tap into the 5G network. But the 5G Moto Mod opens up several possibilities without encumbering the smartphone with additional embedded hardware. We will have a full review of the phone by then, although the Mod isn't coming out until next year. Alongside announcing the launch of the Moto Z3, the company has revealed that it has no plans to bring the anticipated Moto Z3 Force.

Motorola's version of Android has always been smooth and clean, and there's nothing new here-which is good, in this case. There is now no information about the eagerly awaited Motorola One Power and the Moto One smartphones.
