Is this the Moto Z3, Z3 Play and Motorola’s 5G Moto Mod?

There have been possible details regarding the upcoming Moto X and Moto G lineup and even Motorola’s flagship series, the Moto Z.

The Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play will be the Lenevo owned company’s next flagship devices as well as a bonus in Motorola’s 5G Moto Mod.

The Z3 might come with a 5G mod which would increase the capacity of the device to withstand ultra high speed data. The Moto Z3 and Z3 Play would feature a 16:9 Display to keep up the trend. That’s an important step for Motorola, since they locked themselves into a similar shape by keeping the current crop of Moto Mods around for three years. In other words, this needed to happen if the Moto Z3 line was going to stay relevant.

The image suggests that both the phones would have a 6″ display (possibly FHD+).  A Snapdragon 845 processor will power the devices.

There might not be a notch in their design but rather a S8-ish small bezel on the top and bottom side. Motorola has allowed phone owners to switch between on-screen navigation buttons and fingerprint reader-swipe style. There might be a modern version of that in these phones.

However, sources suggest that Motorola’s upcoming midrange devices are going to have a iPhone X like notch. The next Moto G7, Moto E6, and Lenovo K9 lines all may rock the notch.

We aren’t finding fingerprint readers on either phone, though. Like on the Moto X5, does that mean no fingerprint reader in place of something like facial recognition or has Motorola and Lenovo embedded them under the display? We just don’t know at this time.

Moto’s 5G Mod?

A very interesting story suggests that Motorola could launch a 5G mod. Let’s not forget that just over a year ago as Motorola was doubling down on Moto Mods, they talked openly about a future Moto Mod that would add 5G capabilities to a phone. But it seems like there could be a Moto 5G mode very soon. Either that, or Motorola was telling customers, vendors, or partners that this was a possibility and needed an image to hammer the point home.

Motorola announced the Moto Z2 Play in early July, followed by a second announced for the Moto Z2 Force a few weeks later. I think it’s safe to assume these new Moto Z3 devices could arrive at a similar time.
