Motorola Moto Z3 Set to Launch on August 2 as the First 5G Enabled Smartphone By Somnath Brahma Posted on July 30, 2018 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr Motorola is set to launch another flagship smartphone after unveiling the Moto G6 series back in May 2018. As per reports, Motorola looks all set to launch the Moto Z3 flagship device, which would also become the first smartphone in the world to offer true 5G networking capabilities. Unlike the Moto Z3 Play which was launched in Brazil, the Moto Z3 flagship device will be unveiled at Chicago on August 2 because the US is among the first countries to provide 5G support. Rumors also suggest that the smartphone will be launched exclusively on Verizon network as it is first telecom provider in the US to provide 5G support. Meanwhile, Motorola is also set to launch the Moto G6 Plus in India in early August. However, some reports have claimed that the Moto Z3 will be launched with 4G LTE capabilities in the beginning. Motorola may later roll out a MOD to enable 5G networking later. Also, since most of the MODS (MODS for Moto Z series of smartphones) are universal, the 5G MOD may work on Moto Z series devices of the earlier generation like the Moto Z2 and Moto Z2 Play. Just like other MODS, the company may sell the 5G MOD separately after the launch of the Moto Z3 and custom, ers will have to shell out extra money to enable 5G connectivity on their smartphones. Coming to the specifications, as confirmed earlier, the Moto Z3 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core chipset with an 18:9 aspect ratio screen featuring very thin bezels on the sides. It will feature a QHD+ OLED display with at least 6GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage space. If rumors are to be believed, the Moto Z3 is not likely to arrive with a shatterproof display like the Moto Z2 Force. Instead, it will feature a tempered glass display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
