Motorola isn't giving up on its smartphone Mods just yet

Moto Z3

To offer 5G connectivity, Motorola has embedded Qualcomm's X50 modem within a module that's called the 5G Moto Mod.

The Moto Z3 sports a 6-inch AMOLED screen that is accompanied by a taller display and minimal bezels on the top and bottom. At least not this year.

We're not sure that Moto's Mods were the game-changers they were meant to be, but that hasn't stopped Motorola from making one more modular smartphone.

For one, the phone - called the Moto Z3 - is actually a 4G phone, coming August 16 on Verizon. The Force model has typically been a slightly upgraded version of the regular Z model with a shatterproof display.

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. In regards to the pricing of the 5G Moto Mod, Motorola is yet to confirm any details but it will not be available for the general public until the beginning of 2019.

The price of the 5G Moto Mod was not revealed, but the press release says that, for a limited time, you can purchase any existing Moto Mod over $100 for just $50 if you buy the new Moto Z3.

Now onto the 5G Moto Mod, because honestly, the Moto Z3 sounds pretty average on its own. The phone will be available in ceramic black colour variant. The Z3 even shares some of the Z3 Play's once-unique features as well, like the side-mounted fingerprint scanner that's easily accessible with your thumb or your index finger. Sadly the Moto Z3 lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack, but a USB Type-C to 3.5mm jack adapter is provided. The 5G Moto Mod has an in-built 2000 mAh battery. It also continues the Moto Z-Series legacy of supporting Moto Mods through a dedicated pogo-pin connector at the back. Motorola officials said in a press briefing that about 40 percent of Motorola smartphone customers use a mod.

-The Moto Z3 is splash resistant, but Motorola hasn't yet specified the IP rating. 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.
