The 5G moto mod will have an additional cost, we just don't know how much yet. As of now, there is no information on the exact pricing of the Moto 5G MOD what so ever. Motorola claims the use of the Verizon 5G network will result in speeds 10 times faster than current networks and would allow a user to download an entire 4K movie "in just seconds". The smartphone continues the Moto Z-Series legacy of supporting Moto Mods.

In the USA, the Moto Z3 comes only in Ceramic Black color and will be costing around $480 (approx Rs 33,000).

The Moto Z3 is launching on August 16 and will be available for $20/month for 24 months - working out to a final retail price of just $480. To many, this might sound like something from a year ago that Moto is just discounting to promote the new 5G Moto Mod exclusive to Verizon.

The Moto Z3 features a 6-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×2160 and an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC coupled with 4GB RAM.




The smartphone has a dual rear camera setup that includes a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel monochrome sensor, paired with a dual-LED flash module. On the front, you'll find an 8-megapixel f/2.0 selfie snapper too. It includes an internal storage of 64GB as well along with a microSD for expandable sotrage. Connectivity options in the smartphone include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Global Positioning System and USB Type-C port. This flagship runs Android v8.1 Oreo out of the box.

Motorola has mentioned that it will be more resource intensive to integrate the 5G modem into the phone rather than release a Moto Mod that will get the job done. The accessory comes with a 2000mAh battery pack as well.

While there might not be something that special about Moto Z3 at first glance, the smartphone will become truly unique in 2019 when Motorola will make the brand-new 5G Moto Mod available for purchase. The additional 5G moto mod will work with Verizon's 5G millimeter wave spectrum, according to Verizon.

Motorola Moto Z3 specs and features: What does it do? The smartphone will be compatible with existing Moto Mods in the market. To compensate, the 5G Moto Mod has its own 2,000 mAh battery so it doesn't drain the Moto Z3's battery. There aren't very many cities in the United States that are scheduled to have 5G coverage from Verizon, which said in Thursday's release that it will bring the new technology later this year to "Houston, Los Angeles, Sacramento and one additional city, to be named".
