New Motorola Moto Mods (including a camera supporting interchangeable lenses) are reportedly coming soon
Motorola Mobility is seemingly getting ready to release several new Moto Mods for its Moto Z smartphones. The most interesting - and possibly the most expensive - among them should be a camera Mod with support for interchangeable lenses (made by the likes of Canon, Nikon, and Sony). Such a Moto Mod could transform a Moto Z smartphone into a serious alternative to DSLR and mirrorless cameras, although it remains to be seen how well this can perform.
A second new Moto Mod should be an upgraded projector (offering 35% more brightness and a larger battery compared to the current Moto Projector), while a third one is expected to be a "low cost speaker."
Interestingly, it's said that a drone Moto Mod also exists - this seemingly "has the ability to fly off the back and take a photo of you then fly back on its own." Unfortunately, the (unknown) manufacturer of the drone Mod allegedly backed out of planning to release it, and it's not clear if Motorola intends to pursue this idea further.
All these details come from a person who attended a non-public conference where Motorola showcased these unannounced Moto Mods. There is no word on exactly when the new Mods will be launched, but it may happen at the same time with the Moto Z3 smartphone series - if that's the case, we may have to wait until summer for them.
