Moto Z camera module will be made by Hasselblad

Moto Z
When Lenovo launched the Moto Z at Lenovo Techworld in San Francisco in July the company hinted at a camera module coming soon. The camera module has been leaked in a promo image with specs and it looks like camera company Hasselblad will be onboard.

Hasselblad is a well known camera maker based in Sweden who have been producing high quality medium format cameras since World War 2. The Moto Z camera module, called the True Zoom will feature a 10x Optical Zoom with a manual shutter and zoom control, an option for RAW format capture and Xenon flash.

The module will attach to the rear of the Moto Z like other Moto Mods, using a magnetic attachement system that is surprisingly sturdy, yet easy to remove when you want. The modules and phone communicate through a proprietary 16-pin connector on the rear of the phone, sending data straight to the phone, which can then automatically be backed up to the cloud.

Pricing, availability etc. haven’t been announced – and don’t forget the Moto Z still hasn’t been announced in Australia – but with this promo shot it looks like it won’t be too far off.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Interesting. If the camera software is good I’d give it a go. I already like Moto’s minimal bloat approach to the OS software.

That sounds a great idea and would be good for me as I go to a lot of cricket and phone photos from the boundary are too far away. I’d be very interested in this phone if it wasn’t for the measly 2600 mAh battery 😔

I’d be pretty confident any sort of dedicated camera mod would include a battery boost as well.


The moto z force has a bigger battery though and can still take the mods…
