Speaking of Moto Mods, Motorola has also announced a 5G Moto Mod in partnership with Qualcomm, which makes Moto Z3 the first 5G upgradable smartphone in the world. Naturally, people are wondering when the next Moto Z will be announced. Moto Z3 can be bought for $20 per month for 24 months and Motorola is offering up to $300 off on the phone under its device payment plan. At least not this year.
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.
Motorola previous year launched the Moto Z2 Force in July.
The Moto Z3 price in the USA has been set at $480 (approximately Rs. 33,000).
Motorola has also brought the 5G Moto Mod that is created to deliver a next-generation experience on the Moto Z3.
On the specification front, the new Moto Z3 flagship smartphone comes with a 6-inch Super AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160X1080 pixel of resolution. Further, it bears a water-repellent P2i coating that is touted to protect from spills and splashes on top of 6000 series polished aluminium frame. We got to take an early look at the phone at Motorola's launch event in Chicago.

The 5G mod uses the usual MotoMod connector, but it only works with this specific phone. The camera supports Laser Autofocus Color and Correlated Temperature (CCT) dual LED flash.
The phone is splash resistant and has the power button on the left side, with the fingerprint scanner sitting on the right side. The device is backed by a 3,000mAh battery and support (15W) TurboPower fast charging technology. Under ideal conditions in the lab, the 5G Moto Mod hit a peak speed of 3.5Gbps for downloads.
From a subscription perspective, the Mod acts like "a data card connected to your phone", according to Moto engineers. Sadly the Moto Z3 lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack, but a USB Type-C to 3.5mm jack adapter is provided. The Moto Z3 comes in only one colour model - Ceramic Black. Other optional accessories include a projector that can be attached to a phone to beam its display onto a wall, more powerful cameras and additional battery packs. Motorola officials said in a press briefing that about 40 percent of Motorola smartphone customers use a mod. There is now no information about the eagerly awaited Motorola One Power and the Moto One smartphones. As of now, there is no information about the worldwide availability of the device.
