Verizon-Exclusive Moto Z3 Now Available

A few weeks ago, Motorola unveiled the Moto Z3 as a Verizon-exclusive device. Today, the company revealed that the phone is now available through the wireless carrier.

What's neat about this phone is that it is recognized as Motorola's 2018 flagship phone upgradeable to 5G connectivity. We say upgradeable because its 5G capability comes through a Moto Mod that Motorola is still working on. And ever since Sprint and LG announced their 5G phone set for next year, the Moto Z3, sans Moto Mod, doesn't really count as the first 5G-ready device.

Other than the 5G Moto Mod, the Moto Z3 makes for an interesting device. For starters, the phone comes with a 6-inch AMOLED display with reduced bezels surrounding it. The much-awaited 5G Moto Mod can be connected to the pin connector on the rear to convert it into a 5G-ready device. The rear also comes with two 12-megapixel camera sensors. Another 8-megapixel camera can be found in front of the phone for selfies and video calls.

Powering the phone from within is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. A microSD card slot is available for memory expansion of up to 2000GB. The phone also comes with a 3000mAh battery, NFC, a fingerprint scanner, and a rugged frame.

Upon unboxing, the phone operates on Android 8.1 Oreo. Motorola has confirmed, however, that they are working on an Android 9 Pie update for this device.

Starting today, you can pick up this phone from Verizon for $480 or $20 monthly. Motorola has not yet given an official update on the status of the 5G Moto Mod except for a 2019 release. And with Verizon recently adding Indianapolis as the fourth city to get 5G network, they might need to hurry up on the release of the Moto Mod.

  1. I'M not going to use a phone with a big, slap-on magnetic hump back. I'll wait for a real, integrated 5G phone. The 5G modem won't be inexpensive either.

  2. That 5G “mod” better come with a battery as well, because it is gonna suck that weak 3KmAh battery dry in no time.

    1. It's really ridiculous that the base model has a woefully inadequate battery, so you have to attach a doo-dad add onto it in order to make up for it.

      A phone should ship with a good battery. Period. The Moto Mods idea should really be for extras above and beyond the basics that all phones should have anyway.

  3. Motorola is famous for being years late or never with updates that should take a couple of weeks at most.

    So when they say they are working on Android Pie upgrades, it means they are working on it like Dan Connor was working on that boat in his garage on the old Roseanne show.

  4. I wonder why Lenovo chose to go with the older processor in tbeir new flagship Z3?

  5. In 2 years 5G will be universally deployed in a variety of urban areas.

    Meanwhile, you'll still be paying off a phone with last year's snapdragon that requires the additional purchase of a battery draining 5G addon just to get in on the next revolution.

    It's like, bruh, just buy a g6 Play and upgrade to a 5G phone next year.

    The S10 is coming...

  6. I read it has a 5g mod and a battery pack in it

  7. Does the Moto z3 come with a pre paid plan
