The Moto Z3 release date is August 16, and that's also when you're be able to buy the world's first 5G-upgradable smartphone, according to Verizon and Motorola.
Moto Z3 will be able to tap into Verizon's budding 5G network with a forthcoming 5G Moto Mod accessory. We're currently in Chicago awaiting to see a hardware demo.
So far, we've seen the Moto Z3 smartphone, and when combined with the 5G Moto Mod, it should benefit from expanded bandwidth, higher speeds and lower latency.
Verizon is currently rolling out 5G residential broadband service in four US markets: Houston, Los Angeles, Sacramento and one additional city to be announced soon.
It'll then move on to mobile 5G solution in 2019. That's when we may see the Moto Mod 5G accessory launch, although Motorola hasn't said that just yet.
