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.
