The world’s first 5G smartphone just launched and we all missed it

Verizon just let slip when its 5G mobile service will launch

Yesterday, Motorola launched the Motorola Moto Z3 at an event in Chicago. Motorola has been promising a 5G add-on Moto Mod for its modular Z line of phones for a while now, and the Z3 is the first one that will officially get it.

Motorola is back with a new smartphone. There is a 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the top. As for the price, the flagship model will be available for just $480 which is quite affordable except that the processor onboard is outdated. It is one of the sleekest smartphones available in the market with just 6.75mm thickness.

That isn't necessarily a bad thing if you liked what the Z3 Play had to offer. The Z3 equipped with the mod will get speeds of around 2.5 GB/sec. Instead of the latest Snapdragon 845, the company has opted for the last-gen Snapdragon 835 for the Moto Z3. A micro-SD card can further expand the storage capacity.

There's a fingerprint reader on the side of the device (instead of the front or back) and dual 12MP depth-sensing cameras on the back. The phone also comes with a dual LED flash for better picture capture in low-light situations. The front-facing camera can capture 8-MP shots through an f/2 lens with an 84-degree field of view. Speaking of the battery, it checks in at 3,000 mAh, which should give you a full day of runtime. There are not many differences between the Moto Z3 and Z2 Force.

Software: The Moto Z3 runs on nearly stock Android. The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, and offers an interesting gesture navigation UI powered by a single slider button. There's no word if the smartphone will be upgraded to Google next operating system - Android P or Android 9.0.

The Moto Z3 comes weeks after the launch of Moto Z3 Play and it basically clubs modern design with decent, but outdated processor into a package that does not cost a lot of money.

The Moto Z3 is the first 5G phone-with an asterisk.

The 5G Moto Mod will use Verizon's 28 GHz millimeter wave spectrum, and it carries a pair of Qualcomm modems (X50 5G NR modem and the X24 LTE-Advanced modem).

Motorola promises the 5G-ready Z3 can download 90 Spotify songs in 10 seconds.

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.

Motorola is one of the first companies to commercially launch a smartphone that is capable of supporting the next generation of mobile and internet connectivity.
