Motorola confirms there won’t be a Moto Z3 Force this year

Moto Z3 debuts with fingerprint scanner on the side, 5G mod - GSMArena.com news

On Thursday Motorola held a special event at its United States headquarters in Chicago to announce two new products: A smartphone, the Moto Z3, and a new 5G Moto Mod. But where there's a modular Motorola phone, there's a Moto Mod to fix it. Earlier this year, they released the Moto Z3 Play.

There's no word quite yet as to how much the 5G Moto Mod will cost, but once it's available, you'll be able to place it on the back of the Z3 and access Verizon's 5G network (assuming you live in a market that's covered by it).

Motorola has today announced the first smartphone that can be easily upgraded to the 5G technology.

Powered by the not-so-latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the Moto Z3 is backed by a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

US says remains returned by North Korea likely American
The signing of a peace treaty could allow the North to demand the pullout of the 28,500 American troops stationed in South Korea. Reports last week suggested that a separate North Korean site used to develop missile engines was dismantling its facilities.

5G Moto Mod price has not been announced by the company as of now. Coming to the cameras, the Z3 sports two 12MP cameras on the rear side with the primary sensor featuring Dual Pixel autofocus, phase-detect laser autofocus, f/2.0 aperture and dual LED flash.

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

Numerous Z3 Play's hallmark features, like its dual-lens cameras capable of shooting in true black-and-white, as well as its 6-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED display, return in the Moto Z3. Unfortunately, the Android One smartphones were missing from the show. A 3,000mAh battery keeps the phone going all day and a USB-C port is used for charging.

The Moto Z3 will be a Verizon Wireless exclusive, priced at $480 and available starting August 16. Now that we have wrapped up the hardware specifications of the Moto Z3, let us move on to the 5G Moto Mod that has been made in partnership with Verizon. It'll be for Verizon's 5G network, and it will come "early in 2019", according to Verizon network chief Nicola Palmer. A fingerprint sensor is embedded into the power button on the right side and face unlock features for unlocking is also supported. This is a whole generation behind the current batch of flagship Android phones that use the more powerful Snapdragon 845. The Moto Z3 comes in only one colour model - Ceramic Black. It also continues the Moto Z-Series legacy of supporting Moto Mods through a dedicated pogo-pin connector at the back. While the user can enjoy up to 5Gbps speeds on a mobile device, the Mod is also as thick as the device itself. There is now no information about the eagerly awaited Motorola One Power and the Moto One smartphones.
