Moto Z3 First Look: Looking Ahead to 5G

Yesterday, Motorola unveiled the Moto Z3 which will be a Verizon exclusive in the U.S.

Like we were expecting, Motorola stuck with a similar design once again as to accommodate all of the Moto Mods that have been released up until this point. Google, which had a greater ambition for modular phones and LG, which tried modular phones once, have both given up on the idea.

The Moto Z3, of course, supports MotoMods, which makes it a lot easier to customize and comes with one new mod that will leapfrog the device into the world of modern communication in 2019.

The Moto Z3 is the first 5G phone-with an asterisk. Instead of the latest Snapdragon 845, the company has opted for the last-gen Snapdragon 835 for the Moto Z3.

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

Coming to the cameras, there are 12MP dual cameras on the rear with f/1.7 aperture and an 8MP single selfie camera on the front with f/2.0 aperture.

Front camera: On the front, the Moto Z3 comes with an 8-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0.

The official Motorola US Twitter account responded to an inquiry about the Moto Z3 Force. 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. The Z3 even shares some of the Z3 Play's once-unique features as well, like the side-mounted fingerprint scanner that's easily accessible with your thumb or your index finger.

As you can see, the Moto Z3 isn't quite a real 5G phone. So, it has made a decision to circumvent the cost of up-to-date native components and forward the cost to a Moto Mod. Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and USB Type-C port.

Now onto the 5G Moto Mod, because honestly, the Moto Z3 sounds pretty average on its own.

The 5G mod uses the usual MotoMod connector, but it only works with this specific phone. The smartphone will be available in ceramic black color.

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

-The Moto Z3 is splash resistant, but Motorola hasn't yet specified the IP rating. We're now in Chicago awaiting to see a hardware demo.
