Motorola Adds 12 New Moto Mods To Its Lineup Including A 360-Degree Camera And DSLR Mods
Motorola unveiled its new line-up of Moto Mods to keep its promise of releasing twelve new Moto Mods each year. The company made the announcement at an event recently held in Ghana, West Africa.
The new Moto Mods, which number a dozen, were introduced at the Motorola and MTN event along with the 2016 Moto Z, Moto C, Moto E, and Moto G smartphones. The new Moto Mods were unveiled through a short video.
One of the most intriguing of the new Moto Mods is the one with a 360-degree camera protruding from the top of the Mod which, as The Verge pointed out, is similar to the 360-degree camera of the Essential Phone, a product of Android co-creator Andy Rubin. The Moto 360 Camera Moto Mod comes with a couple of lenses which helps the Mod take 360-degree photos and videos. The new Moto Mod attaches to the Moto Z via the 16-pin magnetic connector. The Moto 360 module also comes in white.
A DSLR Moto Mod was also unveiled and it comes with Camera Lens support. As the name implies, this new Moto Mod turns any Moto Z phone into a DSLR camera. The Action Moto Mod, meanwhile, comes with a rotatable camera.
Motorola also showed off the two Moto Mods made through their partnership with Marshall. The ROKR Moto Mod is a dedicated speaker module while the Studio Moto Mod comes with a high-quality microphone. 9to5Google speculated that the microphone will be used for recording music.
Motorola also has a new DTV Moto Mod which was made by DirecTV. It is still unclear what the exact features of the DTV Moto Mod are but the module seems to have an HDMI port. If correct, this may mean that a DirecTV streaming stick can be used to stream from the Moto Z and later plug into a TV.
