5G capable phone on sale for $10 per month at Verizon; new line required
Verizon has a nice sale going on for the Motorola Moto Z3. With the optional 5G Moto Mod accessory, the phone will connect with Verizon's next-gen network once the service becomes available for mobile devices. But you can get prepared now by purchasing the phone for just $10 a month over 24 months. This deal is available to both new Verizon customers coming over from another carrier, or current Big Red customers who add a new line.
If you are a Verizon customer and don't want to add another line, you can upgrade online to receive a $200 discount. This amount is applied as a bill credit over 24 monthly billing cycles, reducing the monthly price to $11.66. The actual retail price of the phone is $480.
The 5G Moto Mod, not yet available for purchase, recently received FCC certification. The accessory will use a Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and a Snapdragon X50 modem chip to offer 5G connectivity. It also features an X24 LTE-Advanced modem since the Moto Mod, once attached to the Moto Z3, takes over all modem functions for the handset. It also comes with a 2000mAh battery so that the Moto Z3 battery doesn't drain too quickly.
If you want a cheap 5G phone, and also be prepared for the day when Verizon flips the 5G switch in your neighborhood, this deal might be too good to pass up.
