Motorola Moto Z and the replaceable StyleMods surface in photographs
We don't know what this means, but consider that this year Sony has stopped calling its high-end handset the Sony Xperia Z, and has switched to the Xperia X. Motorola has stopped calling its high-end model the Motorola Moto X, and is now calling it the Motorola Moto Z. A strange coincidence to be sure. Speaking about the Moto Z, the latest image of the device has leaked. Once again, the photo reveals the large camera lens that we have seen on the back of the phone in other leaks.

Included in the photograph (and seen in other pictures included with the leak) is a number of replaceable rear covers for the phone called StyleMods. These can be quickly put on the back of the Moto Z to customize the phone. The materials employed include leather, ballistic nylon, and wood.

Motorola is also expected to go the modular route this year by offering the MotoMods. Unlike the aforementioned StyleMods, these add new functionalities to the phone by connecting the MotoMods to the 16-pin port seen on the bottom of the Moto Z. One of the MotoMods turns your Moto Z into a camera by including a dedicated shutter button, a lens cover and possibly optical zoom.

The Moto Z is expected to feature an AMOLED screen that employs the shattershield technology used to make the display on the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 "shatterproof." We will know all on June 9th when Motorola is expected to unveil the Motorola Moto Z and all of its accessories.

Thanks for the tip!
