At the Lenovo tech World event at the Silicon Valley, Motorola, alongside Moto Z and Moto Z Force, had introduced the Moto Mods ecosystem. It’s a modular back plate that provides utility to the smartphone. It includes Insta-share projector Moto Mod, Power Pack Moto Mod and JBL SoundBoost Moto Mod. Back then, the price of the Mod was not announcedbut Motorola recently iton the MyVerizon app that reveals the costs.
Originally, it was a Reddit user who first spotted the price of Moto Mods and a fair warning to our reader – it pretty high.TheInsta-Share Projector Moto Mod costs$299, whilethe Wireless Charging Power Pack Moto Mod costs $99, theTUMI Power Pack Moto Mod will cost you $89. There’s also theJBL SoundBoost Moto Mod that is priced at $79 and theKate Spade Style Shell Mod that costs $79.As of theStyle Shell Mods, it wasn’t listed.
The Moto Z and Moto Z Force will be available from September, and we don’t have any information regarding the price of either of the devices. The steep price of the Mods is a surprise because, traditionally, Motorola is known for its decent prices. However, the company seems to have skipped applying this tradition to the Mods.
Only time will tell, if the Mods be attractive enough to convince people to buy them. Or maybe the pre-release price is just s gimmick that’s go down at the time of the launch. It’s worth noting that the Moto Mods will connect to the rear of the Moto Z to the 16 connection pin. TheJBL SoundBoost MotoMod will bring two 3W speakers, and the Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod will deliver a70-inch projector. The Style Shell offers polished finishes, and thePower Pack Moto Mod is said to provide 22 hours of additional battery life.
