Your Verizon unlimited plan probably won't include 5G when it's available

Moto Z3 Verizon just let slip when its 5G mobile service will launch

The company launched the all-new Moto Z3, which serves as the follow-up to last year's Moto Z2. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details about the upcoming Motorola smartphones.

The price of the 5G Moto Mod was not revealed, but the press release says that, for a limited time, you can purchase any existing Moto Mod over $100 for just $50 if you buy the new Moto Z3.

Motorola past year launched the Moto Z2 Force in July.

Indeed, those who have been watching the Android segment for a while, and Motorola specifically, may find they recognize a lot about this particular smartphone. Both fingerprint unlocking and face unlock are supported on both handsets, and there's a non-removable 3,000 mAh li-ion battery that charges via USB-C. Moto Z3 comes with a water-repellent coating for splashes. The Moto Z3, however, gets a 12-megapixel f/2.0 color camera and a 12-megapixel monochrome camera, each using laser autofocus. Motorola includes a 15-watt TurboPower charger in the retail box. These carriers are part of an intense race to get to 5G as a way to burnish their reputation for network superiority. No, the Android smartphone does not contain a 5G radio - it is still a 4G phone. 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.

The 5G Moto Mod carries an array of four antennas as well as one of Qualcomm's latest X24 LTE modems, to deliver the fastest-possible LTE speeds even when 5G is unavailable. The 5G Moto Mod has an in-built 2000 mAh battery.

The 5G Moto Mod will go on sale sometime in early 2019, but there's no word on pricing just yet. The clip-on additional battery feature is also a bonus.

For the time being, the Moto Z3 will be available only in the U.S. for a price of $480, which roughly translates to Rs 33,000 approx. The Moto Z3 comes in only one colour model - Ceramic Black. To the end user, this will work the same way that your current internet does, but the data will essentially be beamed into your house. We will have a full review of the phone by then, although the Mod isn't coming out until next year. Motorola hasn't officially confirmed availability of the flagship smartphone in India yet. It is the first 5G upgradeable phone, and will probably be the only phone you can alter its network experience by simply attaching an accessory to it. We may continue to see Mods roll off production lines, but based off Barkat's comments, it seems as though the 5G Mod might be one of the last few truly interesting Moto Mods to break cover.

However, we do have a bit of mixed news on the processing front.
