Motorola Z3 is 'first' 5G-enabled smartphone thanks to Moto Mod add-on

For this generation, there's no "Force" edition of these phones, but they still have plenty to offer and work with the wide assortment of Moto Mods.

Motorola announced a 5G Moto Mod with the Moto Z3, which is going to give customers the ability to connect to 5G when Verizon gets 5G up and running.

Strangely enough, Motorola has chosen to equip its flagship phone with last year's flagship chipset - the Snapdragon 835.

At a press event at its headquarters in Chicago, Motorola officially announced the Moto Z3 on Thursday, August 2.

The Moto Z3 is offered in only one color - Ceramic Black - and, it ships with a 3000 mAh battery that Motorola says can offer up to 24 hours of battery life.

In Liverpool's penultimate preseason friendly, Alisson will face a side from the league that he just came from in Napoli . Firmino isn't the only one to return to Liverpool training this week, as Trent Alexander-Arnold also joined the squad.

The Moto Z3 will be available to buy on August 16 from Verizon for $460, which is actually a pretty great price for the phone alone.

Motorola's high-end smartphone for the year, the Moto Z3 is finally here and just like last time, it will be a Verizon exclusive.

The Moto Z3 features a 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×2160 and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Inside, Qualcomm takes care of the horsepower with its Snapdragon 835, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of flash storage.

As for the cameras, the Motorola Moto Z3 uses a dual 12 MP camera setup on the back with a one being a standard RGB sensor when the second one is a Monochrome sensor. On the front, the Moto Z3 comes with an 8-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C port. Sensors on board include an accelerometer, ambient light, gyroscope, compass, and proximity sensor.

Moto Z3 ships with Android 8.1 Oreo.

No, Google is not returning to China, censored or otherwise
The Chinese government has tightened internet censorship significantly since President Xi Jinping came into power five years ago. But Google is already being warned that complying with Chinese censorship is a complex business requiring an army of moderators.

The company recently launched the Moto Z3 Play in India as well.

But the nation's largest wireless carrier by subscribers essentially outed its plans with the debut of the Motorola's Moto Z3, which will get a "mod" attachment accessory that will let it tap into the 5G network early next year. The mod is said to release next year but no price was mentioned.

And to make sure that the 3000mAh battery on the phone doesn't expire too quickly while employing a 5G connection, the 5G Moto Mod includes a 2000mAh battery of its own.

All Moto Z phones have the same overall design, which is how they work with Moto Mods. Under flawless conditions in the lab, the 5G Moto Mod hit a peak speed of 3.5Gbps for downloads.

In a separate tweet, Trump argued that he "made them richer " and that the Koch network "is highly overrated". And to be clear, we've met with his team, explained this, and lobbied him on this to change their ways.
