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

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

Like other Moto Mods, this one connects to the back of Moto Z-series devices. As for the cameras, the Moto Z3 sports a dual-12MP camera at the back.

The good news is Motorola doesn't seem to be giving up on the Moto Z completely. The mod will ride on the millimeter wave (mmW) technology which offers several benefits in terms of bandwidth, and assures a connection that's free from congestion troubles. Incidentally, the display doesn't have the increasingly common notch at the top.

Motorola has added a microSD card slot as well for storage expansion up to 2TB. The handset also a side-facing fingerprint sensor - embedded on the right. Unfortunately, the Android One smartphones were missing from the show. The device is is splash resistant. Moto Z3 comes with a water-repellent coating for splashes. The sensors do have a f/2.0 aperture.

Front camera: On the front, the Moto Z3 comes with an 8-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. "Its 6" display uses a 2160x1080 OLED panel covered with a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3, and it's all powered by a 3000-mAh non-removable battery. In terms of connectivity, you get WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS and a USB Type-C port.

Software: The Moto Z3 runs on nearly stock Android.

Moto Z3 and 5G Moto Mod have been launched in the US. Motorola hasn't revealed the price of the 5G Moto Mod, though it has confirmed that the new offering will be exclusive to the U.S. in early 2019. The model also comes with a 5G Moto mod. Upgrading to the Snapdragon 845 would enable a few features, such as higher-quality 4K recording, which could be compelling in a 5G environment, but the 835 is still a respectable processor, especially when paired with a 1080p rather than a 2K screen. In early 2019, Verizon is expected to roll out 5G services across four cities in the US.

It includes the same Snapdragon 835 chipset and dual 12-megapixel cameras as past year, and it has the glass back and 1080p 18:9 OLED display that we saw on the Z3 Play. The smartphone will be available in ceramic black color. It will include a 2,000 mAh battery inside. The company has now launched the smartphone only for the USA market. Motorola officials said in a press briefing that about 40 percent of Motorola smartphone customers use a mod. But it is quite likely that the Moto Z3 will soon launch in India.

Yesterday, Motorola launched the Motorola Moto Z3 at an event in Chicago. For $480, that is cheaper than a OnePlus 6 but we guess that since it does not feature any attractive hardware specifications, the price is justified. As of now, there is no information about the global availability of the device.
