The phones are revolutionary as they comes with Moto Mods that snap on to the phone transforming them into new devices. Lenovo has announced a developer programme for those who want to create new mods that snap on to these new smartphones.
The Mods attach to the Moto Z phones using 16 dots on the phone, a bit like magnets. One the mods latch on to the smartphone they can add new capabilities like a more powerful camera or stereo, and of course extra battery.
The design could send a jitter down the spine of the LG, which has created the G5 which now seems like a more crude way of offering a module phone.
The Moto Z smartphones also feature fast charging going up to 50 per cent in 15 minutes. The company claims it has the best camera in a Moto phone so far.
Lenovo-Moto showcased modules like an Insta projector that can beam images of up to 70 inches. There is also a JBL Sound Boost to improve the sound quality.
