Lenovo-owned Motorola last week launched a new smartphone called the Moto Z3. While there is no word on the India launch, the device could be coming to China on August 15.

A poster has surfaced on Weibo, which confirms a Motorola launch event in China on August 15. While the poster doesn’t explicitly mention the Moto Z3, it does seem like the most likely of devices to launch. The company too had recently taken to Weibo to tease an eventual launch of the Moto Z3 in China.

The number ‘5’ in the poster is possibly a hint towards the 5G MotoMod that was launched alongside the Moto Z3. Snapping on the mod will essentially transform the Moto Z3 into the first 5G-enabled smartphone in the world. This mod features a Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 modem, and Verizon users will be able to experience the fast 5G network.

Moto Z3 features, specifications

As far as specifications are concerned, the Moto Z3 features a 6-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage.

For photography, the Moto Z3 comes with dual-camera setup at the back, and an 8-megapixel selfie camera up front. For security there’s a fingerprint sensor. But what’s interesting is that this sensor is placed on the side panel. Just like other Moto devices, the Moto Z3 too is splash resistant, and the device is backed by a 3,000mAh battery. On the software front, the smartphone runs Android 8.1 Oreo, and should be upgraded to Android P.
