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

Verizon just let slip when its 5G mobile service will launch Moto Z3 First Look: Looking Ahead to 5G

Way back in May we got our first look at what was being called at the time the Moto Z3 Play.

While companies like Google and LG have tried (and abandoned) different approaches to getting modular smartphones off the ground, Lenovo's unique (and extensive) portfolio of Moto Mods is set to live on.

In the camera aspect, the Moto Z3 packs dual cameras at the rear which are basically a 12MP + 12MP combo. The flagship is crammed with a 3000mAh battery but the 5G Moto Mod delivers an extra 2,000mAh battery power when connected. The 835, which was last year's flagship chip, doesn't support 5G, but all of that magic will come in the Mod. The smartphone has a 8MP front camera with with 1.12um pixel size and a wide-angle 84-degree lens for selfies and video-calling. Latency is cut, too: that pays dividends for gaming, but will also be vital when it comes to mobile virtual reality and augmented reality. The phone is backed by a 3,000mAh battery, and it comes with support for TurboPower charging, claimed to offer half a day's power in half an hour.

There isn't a headphone jack but Motorola will include a converter dongle in the box. Most of the magnetic attachments seemingly boost battery life, but one of the most intriguing accessories is a mod that lets the device tap into the 5G network. Incidentally, Qualcomm had recently displayed the world's first truly miniaturized 5G antenna that can be embedded in multiple quantities within electronic devices. The mod is likely specifically tuned for the Verizon network on the 28-GHz band, which would make it incompatible for use here in Australia - though we're happy to be corrected if Motorola Australia wants to launch it here.

Wireless carriers have spent the past few years touting their expensive network upgrades with dramatically faster 5G technology. The 5G Mod will be launched in early 2019 and the pricing of the same has not been revealed by the brand at the moment. Ahead of the company's event, the phones were leaked in image renders and specifications on the Android One devices also surfaced online.

As far as pricing and availability are concerned, the Moto Z3 is a Verizon exclusive, and it will be available on August 16. The smartphone will be available in ceramic black color. However, the company said it's still working with Verizon to determine whether users will still face the same data caps they're already limited to on current 4G networks.

There's some good news and bad news about the Moto Z3. There is now no information about the eagerly awaited Motorola One Power and the Moto One smartphones.

The soak test is now only available for users in select regions, the first of which was spotted in Brazil. However, its primary selling point will be the fact that it is upgradeable and we will be getting to that in just a bit.
