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

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

While the Moto Z3 will be on sale starting August 16th in the USA, the 5G Moto Mod is mentioned to be available only from early 2019. Thanks to the new Mod, Moto Z3 will be the first smartphone to Verizon to access Verizon's 5G network. Lenovo-owned Motorola, on Thursday, launched the long-time rumoured Moto Z3 at an event in Chicago. Alongside announcing the launch of the Moto Z3, the company has revealed that it has no plans to bring the anticipated Moto Z3 Force. Also, the new Android phone, as it is now, can't do 5G for another reason.

It includes the same Snapdragon 835 chipset and dual 12-megapixel cameras as previous year, and it has the glass back and 1080p 18:9 OLED display that we saw on the Z3 Play.

For the time being, the Moto Z3 will be available only in the U.S. for a price of $480, which roughly translates to Rs 33,000 approx.

The device comes with the glass back body and the metal frame gives it a rigidity.

The Moto Z3 features a 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×2160 and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone will be available in ceramic black color.

What do you think of the Moto Z3 and its newest Moto Mod? Instead of the latest Snapdragon 845, the company has opted for the last-gen Snapdragon 835 for the Moto Z3. It features 4 GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 2 TB via a microSD card slot. "Its 6" display uses a 2160x1080 OLED panel covered with a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3, and it's all powered by a 3000-mAh non-removable battery.

The global situation "must change", said Sam Brownback, U.S. ambassador at large for worldwide religious freedom. Pence's announcement was delivered at a conference on religious freedom in Washington.


There is no 3.5mm audio jack, but the company is providing a 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter. The Moto Z3 comes with a side-facing fingerprint sensor and also support face unlock.

For optics, the smartphone also comes with a dual camera module comprising of a 12MP primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and secondary monochrome camera with dual LED flash. Selfie camera features include portrait mode, group selfies, face beauty, and face filters.

As for the front camera, it will sport an 8MP shooter.

As far as the design of the phone is concerned, the new Moto Z3, which is the successor to the Z2 - looks a lot like the Z3 Play. The flagship is crammed with a 3000mAh battery but the 5G Moto Mod delivers an extra 2,000mAh battery power when connected. In early 2019, Verizon is expected to roll out 5G services across four cities in the US.

What's preventing out-of-the-box compatibility for all phones that support Moto Mods is unclear at this point, and beyond that, the accessory's release is still months off.
