Verizon, Motorola unveil 5G-upgradable smartphone, Moto Z3

Motorola announced on Thursday its new Moto Z3 smartphone, plus an optional attachment that will give the phone connectivity to Verizon's 5G network.

According to Motorola, the new 5G mod will eventually work with older Moto Z-series phones, as well, and not just the new Z3.

"The Moto Z3 includes similar features to other phones in the Z series, including all-day battery life with a fast charging option, dual 12-MP, depth-sensing smart cameras that work with Google Lens, and a almost borderless 6" Super AMOLED display, according to the release. Starting off with the display, it boasts a 6in Super AMOLED screen, with 2,160 x 1,080 resolution. However, it's the battery that steals the spotlight here. That said, the smartphone also comes with Motorola's signature features like Moto Display and Moto Actions. As per company's claims, the smartphone could draw half a day's power with just half an hour of charging. The cameras at the back on the Moto Z3 come with dual depth-sensing that helps in capturing photos with nice bokeh. This also allows users to authenticate apps and make payments in an instant with the unique fingerprint function.

On the optics front, the smartphone has a dual 12 MP camera setup with features like bokeh effect and 4K video recording. This flagship runs Android v8.1 Oreo out of the box.
