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

So what's next? A product manager at Motorola confirmed to Engadget that the 5G Moto Mod "won't be the last Mod". Google, which had a greater ambition for modular phones and LG, which tried modular phones once, have both given up on the idea. The companies will release a Moto Mod for the device sometime next year that will enable 5G support on Verizon's network. It's equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 modem to help the Moto Z3 get on Verizon's 5G network when that goes live starting in 2019.

As expected, Motorola unveiled a more premium version of its Moto Z3 Play device. Motorola opted to stick with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835 processor - last year's processor - in order to keep the price of the device down.

There's some good news and bad news about the Moto Z3. For the front, there is an 8-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture, 1.12-micron pixel size, 84-degree wide-angle lens and screen flash.

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

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. The smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, and offers an interesting gesture navigation UI powered by a single slider button.

Connectivity options on Moto Z3 Play include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Motorola hasn't announced any plans for worldwide expansion, so it's unclear if the phone - or the 5G Moto Mod - will ever arrive here in Australia. So, it has chose to circumvent the cost of up-to-date native components and forward the cost to a Moto Mod. That promise has been fulfilled with the Moto Z3 family. 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. The mod will work with other Z phones, and will double or triple the existing speeds, even if it isn't the full 5G experience. Further, just like its predecessors, the phone comes with a 16-pin magnetic connector on the back to support Moto Mods. The Moto Z3 comes in only one colour model - Ceramic Black.

This 5G mod is pretty thick, but it includes a 2000mAh battery.

-The Moto Z3 is splash resistant, but Motorola hasn't yet specified the IP rating. The fingerprint sensor is on the side. We at MSP Gear will certainly update our readers as and when new information about these smartphones is available.
