When it comes to modular phones, there aren’t many in the market. One of them which I think is the most promising has been killed off. The Moto Z family is actually one of my most anticipated modular phone so far. it is finally here in Singapore. Introducing the Moto Z, Moto Z Play and Moto Mods.
With just a snap, you can transform your Moto Z or Moto Z Play to become a prosumer camera (Hasselbald True Zoom Camera), a projector (insta-Share Projector), a speaker (JBL SoundBoost Speaker) or a power pack (Incipio offGRID Power Pack).
It uses magnetic connector to link the module together and they are hot-swappable. In layman term, you don’t need to power off your phone to connect the module. Just snap and it works.
