Motorola Debuts New Round of Moto Mods to Accompany the Moto Z2 Play
Motorola today provided details about a handful of new modular attachments for the Moto Z2 Play and other Moto Mod-compatible handsets. The Moto GamePad snaps onto the back of Moto's phones and provides dual control sticks, a d-pad, and four action buttons. The GamePad includes its own built-in 1,035mAh battery and costs $80. The JBL SoundBoost 2 is a new attachable speaker that provides 10 hours of playtime. The SoundBoost 2 is water-repellant, comes in red, black, or blue, includes a kickstand, and has an improved shape for better hand fit. It costs $80. The TurboPower Pack is a snap-on battery mod for quickly recharging Moto handsets on the go. Motorola says it can add an extra day of battery life when kept in place one time, or can provide a rapid recharge at 15W when users need to power up in a hurry. It costs $80. Last, the Moto Style Shell with Wireless Charging combines a shell case and battery in one Mod. It costs $40. Motorola said all the new Moto Mods will be available when the Moto Z2 Play launches later this summer. The new Mods will be backward compatible with all Moto Mod handsets, including the Moto Z, Z Force Droid, Z Play, and Z Play Droid.
Motorola's new Z2 Play smartphone is a fine piece of hardware and I strongly recommend it. While you're at the Verizon store, you should consider picking up some Moto Mods to go with the Z2 Play.
If you live for mobile gaming, the Motorola Moto Gamepad may be the accessory you need to take your gameplay to the next level. It includes a full roster of buttons, joysticks, and toggles in order to take full control of the mobile gaming experience.
Motorola's latest Android smartphone is the mid-range and highly-capable Moto Z2 Play. This winsome handset may not stay strictly true to the original, but it is compatible with all of Motorola's Moto Mods accessories and still brings plenty to the table.
Moto's new g-series phones bring up-to-date features, upgraded specs, and clean Google software to three models ranging from $200 to $300. This year's series moves to a notched-screen design, steps up to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, and supports USB-C across the board.
