Moto Z3: Specifications, Features
The Moto Z range of devices is Motorola’s flagship offerings. These devices come with top-of-the-line hardware, and the Moto Z3 is no exception. Motorola hasn’t been quite forthcoming about the specifications of the latest flagship smartphone. The Moto Z3 is likely to sport a 6.3-inch OLED display panel with a resolution of 1080×2160 Full HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. There’s no confirmation about a notch. However, the smartphone could have a sandwiched-glass design and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Rumours indicate that it might not come with a shatter-proof glass, unlike last year’s Moto Z2 Force edition.
The primary camera could be a dual sensor setup featuring two 12-megapixel sensors on the rear, one of which might be a depth sensor/telephoto lens. As the Moto Z3 is a flagship device, Motorola will most likely embed the industry-leading Snapdragon 845 SoC coupled with an Adreno 630 GPU within the device. The base variant is going to have 64 GB of storage and 4GB of RAM, while the maxed out version should come with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM.
The smartphone could pack a relatively large battery pack. The battery should support the latest Quick Charge 4.0 standard for blazing fast charging speeds. Other features include 802.11 b/g/n/ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, GPS and a USB Type C port for charging and data transfer.
Moto One Power: Specifications, Features
The Motorola One Power or Moto One Power recently cleared the TENAA certification in China. Hence several specifications of the smartphone are now known. Going by the specs listed by TENAA, the Motorola Moto One Power will flaunt a 6.18-inch TFT LCD display with 2246×1080 pixels resolution. An octa-core 1.8GHz processor powers the device. The SoC could be the mid-range Snapdragon 636. Two base models of the Moto One will offer either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB storage, whereas the higher-end variant will come with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard memory.
