In slightly below two weeks, Lenovo is going to unveil the next Moto phone, a phone we are absolutely expecting to be called the Moto Z at this level. Earlier studies have steered that it is going to try the modular factor with again plates, referred to as MotoMods, that can be a lot more user-friendly and versatile on the subject of attainable than what LG attempted with the G5. We may additionally see that same Moto Z phone as a DROID Edition, despite the fact that there is not any sure bet that it is going to display up an Lenovo Tech Global on June 9.
This morning (smartly, ultimate night time to be actual), we are getting a recent take a look at the Moto Z in DROID Edition shape, along side a first take a look at 3 of the MotoMod modules.
Within the symbol above, we will be able to see “DROID” branding at the digital camera housing, which is actually the one differentiator from this phone and the usual Moto Z. Smartly, there's all the time a probability that the DROID Edition gets unique colorways (like those closely gold plated fashions), however the form and measurement, along side the rear pin placements for MotoMod connecting seem to be similar.
A prior document prompt that Lenovo would simplify their line this yr, via simply branding the flagship Moto Z as a DROID Edition, as an alternative of pushing out the Moto Z after which developing an all new phone (like earlier DROID Turbo units) to be bought at Verizon beneath the DROID identify. That is but extra proof of that going down.
However what about the ones MotoMod modules. Smartly, right here are 3 of them.
From what I will be able to inform, we now have (front-right) a digital camera module with a large lens, shutter button and keep an eye on, and flash. Within the center, that appears to me like a thicker battery pack module with kickstand. Within the some distance again, it’s in point of fact tricky to inform, however that would simply be a slimmer battery pack, although there does appear to be some additional a laugh baked in there. Is that a button? What's that line down the center for? (Any ideas?)
UPDATE: In line with @evleaks, what we now have here's (from again to entrance) a projector, JBL speaker, and Hasselblad digital camera.
Through the best way, those are (from L to R) the projector, JBL audio system, and Hasselblad digital camera. https://t.co/7FIk9wA8zx

In the event you have been questioning, sure those practice correct onto the again of the phone. The theory here's that the extremely skinny frame of the Moto Z may also be expanded upon by way of slapping or snapping those modules throughout all of the again. A present or magnet of a few type will grasp those MotoMod modules in position in the course of the units of pins noticed at the again. This is able to make for temporarily swappable modules and would possibly in reality be a nice implementation.
And I will be able to’t consider I’m admitting this, however rattling, this phone is rising on me.
