Motorola is back with a new smartphone. The Moto Z3 was launched on Thursday at an event in Chicago, the company’s headquarters.
The new smartphone, which sits above the Moto Z3 Play that debuted in June, comes with a splash-resistant build and delivers a pure Android experience.
Lenovo-owned Motorola has additionally partnered with Qualcomm to launch a 5G Moto Mod that will enable the next-generation network access on the Moto Z3. The 5G Moto Mod uses a Snapdragon X50 modem and “millimeter wave components” to offer 5G access on Verizon network.
Alongside announcing the launch of the Moto Z3, the company has revealed that it has no plans to bring the anticipated Moto Z3 Force.
The smartphone was well expected as the successor to the Moto Z2 Force and the company’s next-generation flagship. However, it eventually confirmed that no more Moto Z-Series models will debut this year. This means, unlike the last year Moto Z family that included the Moto Z2 Force and Moto Z2 Play, there will be the Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play this year.
Moto Z3 specifications, features
The Moto Z3 runs Android 8.1 Oreo, upgradable to Android P. It features a 6-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) AMOLED display. Along with a Max Vision 18:9 aspect ratio and a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
Motorola hasn't revealed the price of the 5G Moto Mod, though it has confirmed that the new offering will be exclusive to the US in early 2019.
