Motorola Moto Z has come with a different feature Moto Mods, which other phone manufacturers did not concentrate much. Moto Mods is nothing but the ability to change specially designed back covers that come along with one of JBL Soundboost Speaker, Moto Insta-share projector, Hasselblad True Zoom Camera and Incipio Offgrid Powerpack. Motorola wants to apply the same concept to bring more features to phones by adding a Moto Mod.
Motorola even wants to sponsor up to $1 million for creative ideas with Moto Mods Concept.
Hasselblad True Zoom Camera:
Capture anything with 10x optical zoom without loosing resolution. Hasselblad shoots images in RAW format which is the highest quality any picture can get. Images are blur free even at night, thanks to Xenon Flash. Hasselblad mod comes with 12MP sensor and EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation). It is priced at around Rs.20000.
JBL SoundBoost Speaker:
Simply snap on this JBL SoundBoost mod to your Moto Z to get Stereo Music louder and loudest. You get a total of 6W output ( 3W x 2 = stereo ) along with 10hr music playback. This does not draw power from you phone as all mods come with a built in battery. Play music in your backyards, beaches and outdoors for a better experience. Built in kick stand allows standing up the phone comfortably. JBL mod can be charged fast as Type C port charging is supported. It is available at a price of Rs. 7000.
Insta Share Projector:
Turn your Moto Z into a 70" Display with Insta Share Projector mod. Highest resolution possible is only 854x480. Playback time is only 1 hour. You need to charge the mod to use it again. 50 lumens brightness is possible. Switch off all your lighting inside the room to get better contrast of the picture. It costs you almost Rs. 20,000.
Though these Moto Mods are costly as of now, competition grows among many manufacturers and prices will soon be coming down. These Moto Mods target premium segment as cost of each mod is nearly equal to the cost of medium range smart phones. Incipio and other manufacturers started marketing their own Mods.
