In addition to officially presenting the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, today, Lenovo and Motorola announced several new Moto Mods for the Moto Z smartphone series.

First and foremost, in partnership with Amazon, Motorola is readying an Alexa Moto Mod. Expected to be released sometime later this year (for a price that hasn't been unveiled), this Mod will rely on Amazon's digital assistant to let you perform various tasks while on the go: check the news and weather, control your smart home, request a ride from the likes of Uber and Lyft, and so on, all by voice. Interestingly, Motorola says that Amazon Alexa will actually be integrated into its phones beginning this year - more details will be announced at a later date.

Other new Moto Mods include:
 
  • Moto Power Pack (coming in March to provide 50% extra battery life for $49) 
  • Wireless Charging Moto Mod (we're not yet sure if this is the same model that can be ordered from Indiegogo)
  • Turbo Power Moto Mod
  • Gamepad Moto Mod (with physical gaming controls and built-in battery, coming this summer for an unknown price)
For now, Motorola isn't showing any of its upcoming Moto Mods. Nevertheless, we'll reveal them to you as soon as we can.
