Motorola Z3 Smartphone is Forward-Compatible with 5G Networks

Motorola launched its Z3 Play smartphone in June and the standard Z3 will join the line-up later this month. Both handsets are the newest to support the company’s range of MotoMods attachments. Interestingly, the Moto Z3 will receive 5G network compatibility in the future, by way of a MotoMod add-on.

The Z3 Play is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset, while the Z3 uses the 835 chipset instead. They each feature a 6″ Super AMOLED display with 1080 × 2160 resolution, 402 pixels per inch and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The Z3 Play comes in various models, with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage, while the Z3 has only one, with 4GB RAM and 64GB RAM. The storage of both handsets is expandable by up to 512GB via a micro SD card slot.

Both the Z3 Play and Z3 feature an 8-megapixel internal camera. The Z3 Play features a 12+5MP dual-lens primary camera, while the Z3 opts for a 12+12MP set-up. Both handsets capture video in 2160p30 and 1080p at up to 60 frames per second.

Both handsets run Android 8.1 and feature a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The Z3 Play retails from around $500, while the Z3 will cost around $480 when it is released later this month.
