Moto Z3 has magnetic pins at the back to snap on Mods.

Under the hood the phone has a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of on-board storage with a microSD card slot as well.

Rear camera: On the back side, the Moto Z3 comes with dual camera setup with a primary sensor of 12-megapixel with f/2.0 aperture and secondary sensor also of 12-megapixel.

Moto Z3 ships with Android 8.1 Oreo.

Verizon's mobile 5G network is going to launch early next year, even if the company hasn't outright said it.

The Moto Z3 will launch in the United States as an exclusive with Verizon Wireless on August 16. The device will be Verizon exclusive in the USA and the company also announced the 5G Moto Mod which allows the Moto Z3 to access Verizon's 5G network. Motorola hasn't announced any plans for worldwide expansion, so it's unclear if the phone - or the 5G Moto Mod - will ever arrive here in Australia.

Moto Z3 is powered by 2.35GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with Adreno 540 GPU.

Motorola launched the Moto Z3 at a list price of $480, which translates to Rs. 33,000 approximately. Motorola has added an 18:9 display on the Moto Z3 which allowed the brand to cram bigger battery inside the device. The phone also comes with a dual LED flash for better picture capture in low-light situations. The next-generation wireless technology, promising significantly higher speed and responsiveness, is seen as a potential catalyst for a wave of innovation in tech, powering everything from self-driving cars to telemedicine and streaming VR. The Android One badging means the device will run stock Android version and will get updates for up to 2 years.

As for the front camera, it will sport an 8MP shooter. Motorola hasn't officially confirmed availability of the flagship smartphone in India yet.

Front camera: On the front, the Moto Z3 comes with an 8-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0.

Similar to the Moto Z3 Play, the Moto Z3 has One Button Nav that offers an iPhone X-like experience. Alongside announcing the launch of the Moto Z3, the company has revealed that it has no plans to bring the anticipated Moto Z3 Force. However, the battery supports fast charging with Moto's TurboPower solution.

The 5G Moto Mod will go on sale sometime in early 2019, but there's no word on pricing just yet.

While the Moto Z3 will be on sale starting August 16th in the USA, the 5G Moto Mod is mentioned to be available only from early 2019. Pricing for the mod wasn't announced. There is now no information about the eagerly awaited Motorola One Power and the Moto One smartphones.
