Motorola unveils the Moto Z3, the first flagship with a 5G Moto Mod


We’ve already got a handful of new Moto phones this year, including some Amazon exclusives, and today Motorola is adding yet another device to the list: the Moto Z3.

So first, the specs. It’s a 6-inch device with Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, a 12 MP dual rear camera, and 8 MP front camera. It costs $480 retail exclusively at Verizon, and will be available on August 16th. So here’s the difference: the Z3 is marketed as the first Moto Z device that can be “upgradeable” to the 5G network via an upcoming 5G Moto Mod.

Since Verizon clearly isn’t offering 5G yet and is still testing in a handful of cities across the US, the idea is what once the network is live, Moto users could take advantage of it with the new mod. Verizon promised that 5G network will be live four cities later this year in Houston, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and a yet-to-be-named city.

In my brief hands on, the Z3 looks and feels a lot like the other iterations before it — it’s got the same glass back with an aluminum body that, yes, still gathers lots of finger smudges. The fingerprint sensor remains on the side just like the Z3 Play, to many left-handers’ dismay. Just like the Z3 Play appears to be built just to market Moto Mods, the regular Z3 feels like Motorola has recycled its phones just to help Verizon market 5G mods.
