Are these the elusive Moto Z ‘MotoMod’ modules?

We may have the first images of the modules for Motorola’s new flagship phone – as well as a name.

So far we’ve seen plenty of Motorola’s forthcoming modular phone, the Moto Z, but precious little (okay, nothing) of the modules themselves.

That may have just changed, courtesy of – you guessed it – Evan Blass, aka @evleaks, aka the single mighty column propping up the internet’s smartphone rumour sites.

Blass has posted an image of what appear to be three Moto Z modules, as well as a pretty obvious but hitherto-unknown name.

This ‘MotoMod’ picture appears to include a high-grade camera add-on (complete with physical shutter button), but we’re not entirely sure what the other two are. If we were to guess, we’d go with a speaker-boosting module and a battery-boosting module.

Another reliable tipster, hellomotoHK, previously supplied us with a list of the six initial modules that Motorola will be offering: Pro camera Mod, Adventure Mod, Theater Mod, Stereo Mod, Power Mod, and Style Mod.

Expect to see the Moto Z officially unveiled at the Lenovo Tech World conference in San Francisco on June 9.

What does the classic Moto Razr have to do with any of this? That’s probably the biggest lingering mystery now that we’ve ogled these MotoMods.
