Motorola, today announced its latest phone in Z series, Moto Z3, at a special event in Chicago. The phone has been translated as a successor to Moto’s Z3 Play, with similar features minus the rear camera setup and the employed chipset. Yet again, the smartphone can clip to Moto Z-series-exclusive Moto Mods. The smartphone is yet to be announced in India.

Moto Z3 Specifications

The new Moto Z3 is a waterproof handset and has its power button on the left edge. Notably, its fingerprint sensor is present on its right edge, which sets the device apart from the rest currently in the market. The Z3 runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) with navigation button, much like the one Google added to its Android P beta software, though wider.
