Moto Mod leaks reveal images of the Moto Power Pack and next-gen Moto Style Shells

Moto Mod leaks reveal images of the Moto Power Pack and next-gen Moto Style Shells
We've seen images of what allegedly is the Moto Z2 Force, the sequel to this year's Lenovo/Motorola flagship. The Moto Z2 line will continue to feature the 16 pins on the bottom rear of the handsets so that the modular Moto Mod accessories can magnetically be attached to any of the follow-up models. Today, images claiming to show a couple of new Moto Mods have been disseminated.

One of the pictures is said to be a Moto Power Pack. While we don't know the capacity of the battery inside, already there are other Moto Mods available for the purpose of extending the battery life of the phone it is attached to. These include the mophie Juice Pack Moto Mod, which features a 3150mAh battery and allows users to extend their battery life by up to 60%. Another one is the Incipio offGRID power pack, which carries a 2220mAh juicer and adds as much as 22 hours of battery life to a Moto Z series phone.

The second leak reveals the next generation Moto Style Shells. Made of materials like wood, leather and various fabrics, these are used to cover the back of a Moto Z series phone to give it a less industrial design. Motorola included one in the box of each Moto Z series handset sold, and we would imagine that this will continue. While not really made to protect the handset, the Style Shell does allow a Moto Z model to lie flat on its back since it eliminates the camera protrusion. The new Style Shells will apparently include images of cities and landmark buildings.

Since the Moto Z and Moto Z Force were unveiled last June, it shouldn't be too long before the sequels are announced. And just in case you own a Moto Z, Moto Z Force or a Moto Z Play handset, the new Moto Mods will be compatible with your OG device.

Hello Moto, now that LG called it quits on the modular game Motorola can really capitalize on it and I hope they do well, go get em Moto!

Lol. They won't, modular will never catch on until it adds perceived value.

Yeah, nothing special about any of these modules that stops them from being implemented as a universal OTG accessory...

It will be the sixth power pack mod. There already is the incipio, tumi, kate spade, and mophie. And there are 2 versions of the incipio; one with wireless charging and one without.

What's up with the naming? There's no Moto Z2? It's Z2 force now?

Maybe they'll have just one flagship on all the carriers and international markets with Shattershield and a 3200+ mAh battery and Z2 Play...

I loved Moto, but now they are under Chinese umbrella so I give it up. Chinese electronic devices usually spy on you (which is officially required by Chinese government). Actually, flagship phones from Xiaomi, Huawei are extremely attractive and really cheap in comparison with other brands, such as Samsung, Sony or LG and I always want to own one every time they announce a new flagship phone. However, when I think about my privacy, I quit. I'm not an important person with important information but I hate being spied. Poor me!
