Motorola to launch 12 new Moto Z Mods in 2017: Report

Moto Z_4

This week, Lenovo-backed Motorola re-entered the smartphone industry in Pakistan with its high-end smartphones. While it was a welcome move for Moto fans in the country, there came a tidbit of news for global Moto fans. One of the company executives said at the time that it will be introducing 12 new Moto Mods this year. Until now, there are only four mods, which are compatible with the recently launched Moto Z and Moto Z Play smartphones.

In a report on The Tribune, Lenovo General Manager for Middle East Sharay Shams is quoted as saying, The company will introduce 12 Mods this year, which will remain compatible with the phones to be introduced by the company over the next three years. Now this not only indicates that there will be more of such external modules in the near future but also more Moto Z successors which will offer semi-modular capabilities to users.

It is worth mentioning that the idea of modular smartphones, first debuted through Google s Project Ara but was commercialized by LG with its G5. However, owing to the impracticality of the swappable modules in the LG G5, the smartphone failed to strike the right chords among consumers. With the Moto Z, the sheer ease of snapping on modules makes it a preferable choice when users need to add some enhancements to the device.

To put the popularity of the Moto Z in perspective, the company claims to have sold around 3 million units of the smartphone globally, with half of them bundled with a Moto Mod. In India, the Moto Z is priced at Rs 39,999, while prices of the Moto Mods start at Rs 5,999 and go all the way up to Rs 19,999. ALSO READ: Moto Z Review: The Tony Stark of smartphones

The Moto Mods include the Incipico offGRID Power Pack, JBL Soundboost, InstaShare projector and the Hasselblad True Zoom. The Incipico offGRID Power Pack is priced at Rs 5,999 and is like a handy 2,220mAh power bank that you can simply snap onto the Moto Z for instant power boost. Similarly, the JBL Soundboost adds high-quality stereo sound on-the-go. It is priced at Rs 6,999. The most expensive Moto Mods include the InstaShare projector mod which is priced at Rs 19,999 and works like a portable projector that can project a screen of up to 70-inches on a wall or ceiling. The Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod is also priced at Rs 19,999 and it boosts the smartphones photographic capabilities. The mod comes with a physical shutter button, grip handle and a 12-megapixel camera with 10x optical zoom, xenon flash. It further allows one to shoot images in RAW.
