Back in February earlier this year during the annual Mobile World Congress held in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain, Motorola had hinted that it had been busy experimenting with the idea of integrating Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant to its Moto smartphone devices, of course by way of a Moto Mod. Fast forwarding about eight months later and the phone maker is launching the new Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa for the Moto Z.
Part of what makes Motorola’s Moto Z line of smartphones so cool are the Mods, and recently, the phone maker has decided to unveil a couple of new additions to the magnetic modules. Meet the new 3,000 mAh Mophie JuicePack, which comes with a USB Type C port for independent charging, priced at $80, and a car dock (made in collaboration with Incipio) that allows users to charge their Moto Z handsets and at the same time open mobile apps (sort of like Google’s Android Auto).
For its latest flagship Android smartphone offerings, Lenovo’s Motorola brand has decided to go modular. Indeed, the newest pair of Moto devices -- the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force -- feature a super slim body (the Moto Z is just over 5 millimeters thick) and a modular design that allows them to possess capabilities beyond what normal smartphones can do. Some mobile users may have to get used to the fact that the newest Moto smartphones do not come with headphone jacks, but with their modular capabilities, perhaps that is not too bad (a USB-C to 3.5 millimeter jack adapter is included with the devices).
