Images of upcoming Moto Mods leak; Amazon Alexa speaker and Polaroid Insta-share printer surface

14
Back in February, during MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Motorola announced several new Moto Mods for the Moto Z and Moto Z2 series. Among the modular accessories introduced were the Amazon Alexa speaker and the Polaroid Insta-Share printer. Today, tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass sent out a tweet that gives us a look-see at both new MotoMods. The Alexa speaker converts your Moto Z(2) into a handheld Echo smart speaker thanks to the presence of virtual assistant Alexa. The latter will control your smart home, give you the latest news and weather, allow you to shop by voice through Amazon, and much more. 

As you might have surmised from its name, the Polaroid Insta-share printer will quickly print out a hard copy of a photograph that you've taken with your Moto Z(2). The image of the accessory reveals the slot where the printed photograph will exit from, and a cut out for the phone's rear-facing camera. And for a bit of nostalgia, the Polaroid rainbow logo can be found underneath the cut out.

Both Moto Mods are easily attached and detached thanks to the 16 magnetic pins found on the rear of all Moto Z and Moto Z2 phones. At this point, we still haven't a clue as to when these two will be launched, and how much they will cost once that takes place. However, with the dissemination of these images, we'd guess that it won't be too long before the Amazon Alexa speaker and the Polaroid Insta-Share printer are available.
