Motorola is one of the first OEMs to launch a 5G smartphone and one could consider the Moto Z3 (2018) as the first 5G-capable mobile phone. It didn’t have 5G baked in nor the network had been rolled out yet, but courtesy of a separate attachable 5G mod (based on Snapdragon X50 modem), this was technically a 5G phone.
However, the Motorola 5G phones we are about to see here aren’t like that. They have fully integrated 5G support. As per a recent TechArc report, the company has become an industry leader of sorts when it comes to 5G thanks to robust connectivity, coverage, and capability. Let’s hope you are able to find a reliable Moto 5G phone for yourself too.
