Finally and officially, the Hasselblad Moto Mod we’ve been anticipating is here. Actualy, we’ve seen this yesterday already and learned that Verizon is offering it. It’s just one Moto Mod add-on but it’s one of those we’ve been waiting for ever since the idea of Moto Z and Moto Mods were introduced earlier this year. Motorola has teamed up with several other brands already with the new accessories. For imaging, it tapped Hasselblad to make a 10x optical zoom lens with Xenon flash. This one joins the JBL SoundBoost speaker, Insta-Share Projector, and Incipio power packs.
Hasselblad True Zoom Moto Mod plays well with the new Moto Z Play. We’ve also been waiting for this one after several leaks and rumors. The phone already appeared on GFXBench and was sighted with a glass back panel. We’re looking forward to its commercial release and it’s only a matter of weeks or days before we can get our hands on one and do a comprehensive review.
With the Hasselblad True Zoom add-on, you can take photos in RAW format. The zoom controls and shutter button makes taking a photo a breeze you might forget you’re using a phone cam. If you’re getting this Moto Mod, Hasselblad will also give you access to its Phocus software.
The Moto Z Play indeed comes with a glass back. It looks elegant and premium with the full solid aluminum frame that makes the phone lightweight despite the other powerful specs installed. The phone can last up to 50 hours on a single charge on standard mobile use. If it runs out of power, you can quickly juice it up with TurboPower charging. Low battery will never be a problem because only 15 minutes of charging will already give you about nine hours of power.
Other specs of the Moto Z Play include the following: 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display, 1080p HD resolution, 3GB RAM, 16MP laser autofocus camera with wide-angle lens, and a selfie cam with LED flash. Phone will be ready this September with a €499 price tag which is about $557 in the US.
You can also avail of the new smartphone from Motorola.com. Verizon will be launching it as the Moto Z Play Droid Edition with a lower price–$408 with a $17 monthly fee beginning on September 8. Unlocked versions of the Moto Z Play and Moto Z will be out in the United States next month. The Moto Z Play will be $449 while the Moto Z while be more expensive at $699.
