Motorola and Verizon on Thursday introduced the Moto Z3, the latest edition of Motorola's high-end smartphone best known for its assortment of "mod" accessories. However, with the Moto Z3 launching at $460 in the United States, it seems that we might get it for less than the Z2 Force. For a limited time, Verizon's offering up to $300 off the Moto Z3 to customers who trade in an existing device.
The company recently launched the Moto Z3 Play in India as well.
The Moto Z3 offers a dual camera setup on the back. On the front side, the Moto Z3 comes with an 8-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0.
For one, the phone - called the Moto Z3 - is actually a 4G phone, coming August 16 on Verizon.

Samsung spills Galaxy Note 9 early in YouTube video
The most evident one would be the different placement of the fingerprint sensor which is now below the rear camera lens. Samsung is also reportedly working on a dual charging wireless pad that it may launch alongside the Galaxy Note 9 .
That's pretty impressive considering its packing a 3,000mAh battery.
The phone's only questionable spec is its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chip. Unfortunately, it also seems that one that didn't make the cut is the Moto Z3 Force, which means there won't be a shatterproof version of the Moto Z3 line this year. To many, this might sound like something from previous year that Moto is just discounting to promote the new 5G Moto Mod exclusive to Verizon.
Along with the launch of the 5G Moto MOD, the company has also unveiled the much anticipated 5G Moto MOD, which comes with Snapdragon X50 modem from Qualcomm with true 5G capabilities. It will also sport a built-in 2,000mAh battery which should hold up just fine in front of the 5G connection. It'll also come with an extra battery pack to give the phone a few more hours of battery life, especially important when it's connected to Verizon's 5G network.
The 5G Mod's got a little antenna bump at the top there. Motorola hasn't announced any plans for worldwide expansion, so it's unclear if the phone - or the 5G Moto Mod - will ever arrive here in Australia. The 5G Moto Mod will be launched early next year. The price of the Moto Mod is yet to be announced but it won't be available until the start of 2019. We're now in Chicago awaiting to see a hardware demo. But there are still questions we don't know the answers to. No word on when the 5G Moto Mod will be released but those details will be announced later this year. That didn't work out so well and it seems that good ol' Moto is cutting down its roster for 2018. However, you could argue that it's a premature release, as 5G networks in the USA are only available in a few cities at the moment.
