The Moto Z is released today morning, bearing it's signature Moto Mods along.

Moto Z is the first modular smartphone offering from Motorola. The phone was first released in the US in June and after a three month period, it is finally available now in India for Rs 39,999.

Motorola also launched the Moto Z Play, the less powerful version of Moto Z, at Rs 24,999.

While Google closed down its plans for producing a truly modular Project Ara smartphone, Motorola went ahead with the plan by providing a 16-pin magnetic connector at the back of the phone to strap on modules knows as 'Moto Mods'.

The Moto Z features :

  •  5.5-inch quad-HD AMOLED display 
  • Snapdragon 820 processor
  • 4GB of RAM 
  • Adreno 530 GPU. 
  • 64GB of onboard storage
  • microSD card slot that can expand your memory upto 2TB.
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS and can shoot videos of 4K resolution at 30fps.
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera along with a front-facing flash for selfies which can also shoot HD videos at 30fps.
  •  2,600mAh battery

Moto Z Play features:

  • 5.5-inch full HD AMOLED display
  • 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor
  • 3GB of RAM.
  • 16-megapixel rear camera with laser auto focus and LED flash.
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera along with a front-facing flash for selfies which can also shoot HD videos at 30fps.
  • 3500mAh battery.

There is a fingerprint scanner at the end of the display, but it doesn't work as the home button. There's also USB Type-C port for quick charging.

Both the phones has the ability to hot-swap modules that can add more features to the smartphone. For now, you get the Hasselblad TrueZoom camera that has 10X optical zoom, RAW format support and xenon flash; JBL SoundBoost speaker that enhances the sound output of the device; Incipio offGRID Power Pack that can add up to 20 hours of battery life; and a Moto-share Insta Projector that can project an image up to 70-inches from any angle.

The Hasselblad camera mod costs Rs 19,999 while the JBL SoundBoost speaker mod is priced at Rs 6,999 and the Moto-share Insta Projector comes for Rs 19,999. The Incipio offGRID power pack costs Rs 5,999.

The Moto Z and the Moto Z Force along with the Moto Mods will go on sale from 17th October exclusively on Amazon India and Flipkart.


  1. information about Google's Project Ara, Grow Up or Bye-Bye Google is very confusing and full of question marks. but, for sure google will make changes to the way they work and their search engine algorithm
